BOB DYLAN Marchin' To The City

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Marchin' To The City Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Well I'm sittin' in church in an old wooden chair
I knew nobody would look for me there
Sorrow and pity rule the earth and the skies
Looking for nothin' in anyone's eyes

Once I had a pretty gal, did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

Snow flakes are fallin' around my head
Lord have mercy, it feel heavy like lead
I been hit too hard, seen too much
Nothing can heal me now but your touch

Once I had a pretty gal, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

Loneliness got a mind of its own
The more people around, the more you feel alone
I'm chained to the earth like a silent slave
Trying to break free out of death's dark cave

Once I had a pretty gal, done me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

Boys in the street beginnin' to play
Girls like birds flyin' away
I'm carryin' the roses that were given to me
And I'm thinkin' about paradise wonderin' where it might be

Once I had a pretty gal, she done me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

Go over to London, maybe gay Paris
Follow the river you get to the sea
I was hopin' we could drink from life's clear streams
I was hopin' we could dream life's pleasant dreams

Once I had a pretty gal, but she done me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

Well the weak get weaker and the strong stay strong
The train keeps rollin' all night long
She looked at me with an irresistable glance
With a smile that could make all the planets dance

Once I had a pretty gal, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

My house is on fire, burnin' to the skies
I thought the rain clouds, but the clouds passed by
When I'm gone you'll remember my name
I'm gonna win my way to wealth and fame

Once I had a pretty gal, but she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city and the road ain't long

BOB DYLAN Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Knockin' On Heaven's Door Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore.
It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore.
That long black cloud is comin' down
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

BOB DYLAN Farewell, Angelina

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Farewell, Angelina Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Farewell Angelina
The bells of the crown
Are being stolen by bandits,
I must follow the sound

The triangle tingles,
The music plays slow,
But farewell Angelina
The night is on fire and I must go

There is no use in talking
And no need for blame,
There is nothing to prove,
Everything still is the same

A table stands empty by the edge of the stream,
But farewell Angelina,
The sky is changing colors
And I must leave

The Jacks and the Queens,
They forsake the courtyard,
Fifty-Two gypsies now file past the guard

In the space where the Deuce and the Ace once ran wild,
Farewell Angelina,
The sky is folding,
I'll see you after a while

See the cross-eyed pirates sit pirched in the sun,
Shooting tin cans with a sawed off shot gun,
And the corporals and neighbors clap and cheer with each blast,
But farewell Angelina,
The sky, it is trembling
And I must leave fast

King Kong, little elves
In the rooftops, they dance
Valentino type tangos while the heroes clean hands

Shut the eyes of the dead,
Not to embarrass anyone,
Farewell Angelina,
The sky is flooding over and I must be gone

The camouflaged parrot,
He flutters from fear,
When something he doesn't know about suddenly appears

What cannot be imitated perfect must die,
Farewell Angelina,
The sky is flooding over and I must go where it is dry

Machine guns are roaring,
Puppets heave rocks,
At misunderstood visions and at the faces of clocks

Call me any name you like,
I will never deny it,
But farewell Angelina,
The sky is erupting and I must go where it is quiet

BOB DYLAN Dignity

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Dignity Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Fat man lookin� in a blade of steel
Thin man lookin� at his last meal
Hollow man lookin� in a cotton field
For dignity

Wise man lookin� in a blade of grass
Young man lookin� in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin� through painted glass
For dignity

Somebody got murdered on New Year�s Eve
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
I went into the city, went into the town
Went into the land of the midnight sun

Searchin� high, searchin� low
Searchin� everywhere I know
Askin� the cops wherever I go
Have you seen dignity?

Blind man breakin� out of a trance
Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance
Hopin� to find one circumstance
Of dignity

I went to the wedding of Mary Lou
She said, �I don�t want nobody see me talkin� to you�
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
About dignity

I went down where the vultures feed
I would�ve gone deeper, but there wasn�t any need
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men
Wasn�t any difference to me

Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade
House on fire, debts unpaid
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
Have you seen dignity?

Drinkin� man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered-up mirrors
Lookin� into the lost forgotten years
For dignity

Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
Said he�d give me information if his name wasn�t used
He wanted money up front, said he was abused
By dignity

Footprints runnin� �cross the silver sand
Steps goin� down into tattoo land
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light
In the bordertowns of despair

Got no place to fade, got no coat
I�m on the rollin� river in a jerkin� boat
Tryin� to read a note somebody wrote
About dignity

Sick man lookin� for the doctor�s cure
Lookin� at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature
For dignity

Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
Combin� his hair back, his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within
For dignity

Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
Dignity never been photographed
I went into the red, went into the black
Into the valley of dry bone dreams

So many roads, so much at stake
So many dead ends, I�m at the edge of the lake
Sometimes I wonder what it�s gonna take
To find dignity

BOB DYLAN Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

He sits in your room, his tomb, with a fist full of tacks
Preoccupied with his vengeance
Cursing the dead that can�t answer him back
I�m sure that he has no intentions
Of looking your way, unless it�s to say
That he needs you to test his inventions

Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it won�t ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to

He looks so truthful, is this how he feels
Trying to peel the moon and expose it
With his businesslike anger and his bloodhounds that kneel
If he needs a third eye he just grows it
He just needs you to talk or to hand him his chalk
Or pick it up after he throws it

Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it won�t ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to

Why does he look so righteous while your face is so changed
Are you frightened of the box you keep him in
While his genocide fools and his friends rearrange
Their religion of the little tin women
That backs up their views but your face is so bruised
Come on out the dark is beginning

Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it won�t ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to

BOB DYLAN Blind Willie McTell

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN Blind Willie McTell Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem.
I traveled through East Texas
Where many martyrs fell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

Well, I heard the hoot owl singing
As they were taking down the tents
The stars above the barren trees
Were his only audience
Them charcoal gypsy maidens
Can strut their feathers well
But nobody can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

See them big plantations burning
Hear the cracking of the whips
Smell that sweet magnolia blooming
(And) see the ghosts of slavery ships
I can hear them tribes a-moaning
(I can) hear the undertaker's bell
(Yeah), nobody can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

There's a woman by the river
With some fine young handsome man
He's dressed up like a squire
Bootlegged whiskey in his hand
There's a chain gang on the highway
I can hear them rebels yell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

Well, God is in heaven
And we all want what's his
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
I'm gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

BOB DYLAN That Lucky Old Sun

Lyrics From ilovecontestandgiveaway.blogspot.com

BOB DYLAN That Lucky Old Sun Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

I know I took the path
That you would never want for me
I know I let you down, didn't I?
So many sleepless nights
Where you were waiting up on me
Well I'm just a slave unto the night

Now remember when I told you
That's the last you'll see of me
Remember when I broke you down to tears
I know I took the path
That you would never want for me
I gave you hell through all the years

So I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you

I've been around the world
And never in my wildest dreams
Would I come running home to you
I've told a million lies
But now I tell a single truth
There's you in everything I do

Now remember when I told you
That's the last you'll see of me
Remember when I broke you down to tears
I know I took the path
That you would never want for me
I gave you hell through all the years

So I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you

Don't tell me that I'm wrong
I've walked that road before
And left you on your own
And please believe them when they say
That it's left for yesterday
And the records that I played
Please forgive me
For all I've done

So I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you
