Bob Dylan's
Bob Dylan and Suze

You're a Big Girl Now

Our conversation was short and sweet

It nearly swept me off-a my feet.

And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh,

And you are on dry land.

You made it there somehow

You're a big girl now.


Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,

He's singin' his song for me at his own expense.

And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh,

Singin' just for you.

I hope that you can hear,

Hear me singin' through these tears.


Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast

Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.

I can change, I swear, oh, oh,

See what you can do.

I can make it through,

You can make it too.


Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,

You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days.

Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh,

In somebody's room.

It's a price I have to pay

You're a big girl all the way.


A change in the weather is known to be extreme

But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?

I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh,

With a pain that stops and starts

Like a corkscrew to my heart

Ever since we've been apart.
