D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
William Zanzinger killed poor Hattie Carroll
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
With a cane that he twirled 'round his diamond ring finger
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
At a Baltimore hotel society gatherin'
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And the cops was called in and his weapon took from him
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
As they rode him in custody down to the station
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m A chordA
And booked William Zanzinger for first degree murder

CHORUS:
G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm G chordG A chordA D chordD
But you who philosophise disgrace and criticise all fears
G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm
Take the rag away from your face
G chordG A chordA D chordD
Now aint the time for your tears

D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
William Zanzinger who at twenty-four years
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Owned a tobacco farm of six hundred acres
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
With rich wealthy parents who provide and protect him
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And high office relations in the politics of Maryland
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Reacted to his deed with a shrug of his shoulders
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And swear words and sneerings and his tongue it was a-snarling
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m A chordA
And in a matter of minutes on bail was out walking

G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm G chordG A chordA D chordD
But you who philosophise disgrace and criticise all fears
G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm
Take the rag away from your face
G chordG A chordA D chordD
Now aint the time for your tears

D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Hattie Carroll was a maid in the kitchen
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
She was 1 years old and gave brith to ten children
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Who carried the dishes and took out the garbage
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And never sat once at the head of the table
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And didn't even talk to the people at the table
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And just cleaned up all the food from the table
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
And emptied the ashtrays at a whole other level
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Got killed by a blow lay slain from a cane
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
That sailed through the air and came down through the room
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m
Doomed and determined to destroy all the gentle
D chordD Bm chordBm F#m chordF#m A chordA
And she never done nothing to William Zanzinger

G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm G chordG A chordA D chordD
But you who philosophise disgrace and criticise all fears
G chordG A chordA D chordD Bm chordBm
Take the rag away from your face
G chordG A chordA D chordD
Now aint the time for your tears


NOTE Alot of this tab is copy pasted as the rhythm is consistent so if it looks like the chords are in the wrong place on a line don't worry just play the song as you normally would and you'll be fine I usually submit more quality tabs but I wanted to submit one today and I'm just very sick Enjoy all

NOTE I transposed this up by two intervals as I prefer the sound of it like this

About this song

"The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" is a topical song by the American musician Bob Dylan. Recorded on October 23, 1963, the song was released on Dylan's 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changin' and gives a generally factual account of the killing of 51-year-old barmaid Hattie Carroll by the wealthy young tobacco farmer from Charles County, Maryland, William Devereux "Billy" Zantzinger (whom the song calls "William Zanzinger"), and his subsequent sentence to six months in a county jail.
