Bob Dylan's
Bob Dylan and Suze

Spirit on the Water

Spirit on the water

Darkness on the face of the deep

I keep thinking about you baby

I can't hardly sleep


I'm traveling by land

Traveling through the dawn of day

You're always on my mind

I can't stay away


I'd forgotten about you

Then you turned up again

I always knew

We were meant to be more than friends


When you're near

It's just as plain as it can be

I'm wild about you, gal

You ought to be a fool about me


Can't explain

The sources of this hidden pain

You burned your way into my heart

You got the key to my brain


I've been trampling through mud

Praying to the powers above

I'm sweating blood

You got a face that begs for love


Life without you

Doesn't mean a thing to me

If I can't have you

I'll throw my love into the deep blue sea


Sometimes I wonder

Why you can't treat me right

You do good all day

And then you do wrong all night


When you're with me

I'm a thousand times happier than I could ever say

What does it matter

What price I pay


They brag about your sugar

Brag about it all over town

Put some sugar in my bowl

I feel like laying down


I'm as pale as a ghost

Holding a blossom on a stem

You ever seen a ghost? No

But you have heard of them


I see you there

I'm blinded by the colors I see

I take good care

Of what belongs to me


I hear your name

Ringing up and down the line

I'm saying it plain

These ties are strong enough to bind


Now your sweet voice

Calls out from some old familiar shrine

I got no choice

Can't believe these things would ever fade from your mind


I could live forever

With you perfectly

You don't ever

Have to make a fuss over me


From East to West

Ever since the world began

I only mean it for the best

I want to be with you any way I can


I been in a brawl

Now I'm feeling the wall

I'm going away baby

I won't be back 'til fall


High on the hill

You can carry all my thoughts with you

You've numbed my will

This love could tear me in two


I wanna be with you in paradise

And it seems so unfair

I can't go to paradise no more

I killed a man back there


You think I'm over the hill

You think I'm past my prime

Let me see what you got

We can have a whoppin' good time
