Bob Dylan's
Bob Dylan and Suze

All Lines

A bald wig for Jack the Ripper who sits
A bed that is never mine
A blanket of newspaper covered his head
A bullet from the back of a bush took Medgar Evers' blood
A cat, she's got nine lives
A cat's meow and a cow's moo, I can recite 'em all
A change in the weather is known to be extreme
A cock is crowing far away and another soldier's deep in prayer
A cold coyote calls
A crash on the highway
A diesel truck was rollin' slow
A fella who always blushes
A finger fired the trigger to his name
A foreign sound to your ear
A forty-four smokeless under my head
A full-blooded Cherokee, he predicted to me the time and the place that the trouble would start
A gentle breeze was blowin', you could feel it from inside
A girl who would murder her own true love
A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ring
A hand set the spark
A handle hid out in the dark
A herd of moose
A jeep to drive, blood to spill
A June crooner
A knife's point or a trip to the joint
A life time with you is like some heavenly day
A lily-white duck come and swallowed him up, Uh-huh
A little confused, I remember well
A little piece of cornbread layin' on a shelf, Uh-huh
A little piece of cornbread layin' on a shelf
A lot of people don't have much food on their table
A lover for your life an' nothing more
A magnificent mantelpiece, though its heart being chipped
A man he did it long ago
A man in the corner approached me for a match
A man lost all his money, he said Willie was to blame
A man with a badge skips by
A master in the arts
A messenger arrived with a black nightingale
A messenger sent me in a tropical storm
A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes
A millionaire's got a million dollars
A monkey wrench
A Napoleon Bonaparte mask
A nasty, dirty, double-crossin', back-stabbin' phony I didn't wanna have to be dealin' with
A pay phone was ringing
A perfect image of a priest
A phrase in connection first with she I heard
A place where there is no pain of birth
A pretty dancing girl was there
A question in your nerves is lit
A real suicide case, but there was nothin' I could do to stop it
A ruckus in the alley and the sun will be here soon
A saxophone someplace far off played
A self-ordained professor's tongue
A shotgun fired and away I ran
A soldier sits beneath the fan
A song will lift
A South politician preaches to the poor white man
A spoon feeder
A squall is settin' in
A strange bedfellow wandered in her room
A summer breeze is blowing
A tear came to his eye
A thousand miles from home
A thousand miles from home
A time they talk about
A vacuum, a scheme, babe
A whore will pass the hat, collect a hundred grand and say thanks
A woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet
A woman shot her lover down
A world I never knew
A world that just don't exist
A world war can be won
A worried man with a worried mind
Abandoned it out West
Abe says, ''Man, you must be puttin' me on''
About a man riding 'cross the desert and it starred Gregory Peck
About Desolation Row
About dignity
About having to be scrounging for your next meal
About man and God and law
About of disease of conceit
About Santa-Fe
About the greatest gambler, you all should know him well
About the madness of becomin' what one was never meant to be
About the same time He made the earth
About the T.V. god and all the pain that it invokes
About the time the door knob broke
Absurd than that love is just a four-letter word
Accept it with pride
Achilles is in your alleyway
Across a broad highway
Across her clear outline
Across the stormy sea
Across the street they've nailed the curtains
Across the swamp of time?
Across the swooping plain?
Across the wide Missouri
Acting out his folly while his back is being whipped
Adjust to what, a dream that bust?
A-doin' what I want to do
Adulterers in churches and pornography in the schools
Advances on your spirit and your soul
Advertising brotherhood
Advertising signs that con you
After a while we took in the clothes
After all my liquor's been drunk
After all my thoughts have been thunk
After he stole my baby
After he took from you everything he could steal
After losin' every battle
After my dreams are dreamed out
After poisoning him with words
After the ambulances go
After waking enough times to think I see
Against the drums of dawn
Against the rocks and sands
Against you comin' around
Agarrame, mi vida
Ah get born, keep warm
Ah me I busted out
Ah, but I was so much older then,
Ah, but I was so much older then
Ah, but you were right. It was perfect as I got in behind the wheel
Ah, I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa no more
Ah, I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long
Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me
Ah, tell me, momma
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
Aim well my little one
Aladdin and his lamp
Albert said, ''I'm leaving you
Alberta don't you treat me unkind
Alberta don't you treat me unkind
Alberta let your hair hang low
Alberta let your hair hang low
Alberta what's on your mind
Alberta what's on your mind
Alfred Bello had a partner and he had a rap for the cops
Alive as you or me
Alive with fiery breath
All about that John B. Stetson hat
All across the peaceful sacred fields
All across the telegraph
All along the levee
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
All along this countryside
All and all can only fall
All around the cabin door
All around you
All because his face was brown
All because of the color of his skin
All clean shaven, all coming in from the cold
All day long I hear him shout so loud
All down in taken-for-granted situations
All dressed like men
All except for Cain and Abel
All except inside the Gates of Eden
All except when 'neath the trees of Eden
All for a moment's glory and it's a dirty, rotten shame
All for a piece of gold
All giving me the eye
All hazards and dangers we barter on chance
All he believes are his eyes
All he ever wanted was somebody to trust
All his kings
All I could hear there was a screamin' sound
All I ever do is struggle and strive
All I feel is heat and flame and all I see are dark eyes
All I have is yours
All I know is that I'm thrilled by your kiss
All I really want to do
All I remember about it was Gregory Peck and the way people moved
All I remember about it was it starred Gregory Peck, he wore a gun and he was shot in the back
All I seemed to be doing was climb
All I would like you to do,
All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight
All kinds-a children in the side road, they was hollerin' at us, sayin'
All lay down their bandanas and complain
All made of Spanish leather
All made of the finest leather
All my connections, too
All my friends have told me
All my loyal and my much-loved companions
All my powers of expression and thoughts so sublime
All night!
All non-believers and men stealers talkin' in the name of religion
All of Rubin's cards were marked in advance
All of the time
All of the time
All of those awful things that I have heard
All of us, at times, we might work too hard
All one color on the one-way track
All over my lonesome grave
All right, I'll set you straight, can't you see I'm a union man?
All right, I'll take a chance, I will fall in love with you
All that and more and then some
All that false instruction
All that foreign oil controlling American soil
All that's gold isn't meant to shine
All the bombardiers are trying to force her out of town
All the friends I ever had are gone
All the furniture, it says ''Made in Brazil''
All the gold and silver are being stolen away
All the ladies in Washington scrambling to get out of town
All the latest gossip, all the latest rhyme
All the laughter is just making me sad
All the money you made
All the people we used to know
All the pigeons gonna run to him
All the rest of them rebel rivers
All the silver, all the gold, all the sweethearts you can hold
All the things that I'm a-sayin' an' a-many times more
All the tired horses in the sun
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
All the way from New Orleans
All the way to the Statue of Liberty
All the young men with their young women looking so good
All their earthly principles they're gonna have to abandon?
All these people that you mention
All those scenes to this affair
All through my whole life
All we need is honesty, a little humility and trust
All ya can do is do what you must
All you ever do is hustle
All you got to do is wait and I'll tell you when
All you see is mine
All your loved ones have walked out the door
All your reindeer armies, are all going home
All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
Alone you stand with nobody near
Along came a fella
A-lookin' around just to see myself
A-lookin' around just to see who's born
A-lookin' around, it was outa sight
Already the fiesta has begun
Also, so, so did the landlord
Although he killed six million Jews
Although I'd a-traveled many miles
Although that your offers are charming
Although the masters make the rules
Always leavin' somebody behind
Always on the outside of whatever side there was
Always on time, is always content
Always was a sucker for the right cross
Am I getting it wrong
Am I here all alone?''
Am I imagining something that never can be?
Am I mixed up too much, am I mixed up too hard
Am I no longer a part of your plans or your dreams?
Am I ready to lay down my life for the brethren
Am I ready, am I ready?
Am I ready, hope I'm ready
Am I still dreamin' yet?
Am I supposed to set back and wait until he's here?
Among the dead and dying her darling love she found
Among the lovely people living free
Among the lumberjacks
An eternal flame, quietly burning
An innocent man in a living hell
Analyze you, categorize you
Ancient footprints are everywhere
And a buzzard and a crow
And a cannon ball blew my eyes away.''
And a chariot that stood
And a coat of solid gold
And a crown in the bargain for to kick up the dust
And a dirty hot dog
And a evil eye
And a fistful of coins showed the money he bummed
And a guilty conscience, too
And a gun that shoots
And a hole in the sky where God used to be
And a hot-lipped hoe
And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac
And a little wee drummer intending to camp
And a lonesome bell tone in that valley of stone where she bathed in a stream of pure heat.
And a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage
And a lot more than I needed of some things that turned out bad
And a lot of them seemed to be lookin' my way
And a man's gonna do what he has to do
And a natural leader
And a noble truth is a sacred creed
And a pair of old Greek shoes
And a piece of an old ship that lies on the shore
And a shot the world wide
And a soldier, he always is decent and clean
And a thousand miles behind
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
And a wanderer by trade
And a woman's face in ev'ry one
And accept it all bravely
And accept it that soon
And admit that the waters
And after a rocking, reeling, rolling ride
And after ev'ry plan had failed
And after finding I'd
And after weeks and weeks of hangin' around
And ain't a-gonna grieve no more
And Albert fell on the floor
And all I can see is myself
And all of your children start to resent you
And all that you've held sacred, falls down and does not mend
And all the boys back in the tank
And all the couples dancing cheek to cheek
And all the remnants of her recent past
And all the time you were holdin' three queens
And all they ask of you is your name
And all your dreams have vanished and you don't know what's up the bend
And all your ragin' glory
And all your troubles will pass right on through
And also by his feet
And although that we're single and free
And always tell him, ''No''?
And another day just drives on through
And another man named Bello, movin' around mysteriously
And another man to eat fire
And anyone can fill his life up
And Arthur and I, we soon drew our hogs
And as for compensation, there's little he would ask
And as long as it does I'll just sit here
And as she was letting go her grip
And as the yellow fog is liftin'
And ask him do you want to make a deal?
And ask me to
And asked for no applause
And asked me if I was leavin' with you or her
And at that the judge jerked forward
And babe, I'll do it all over you
And bade it a tedious returning
And bake that dough
And be discovered beneath a truck
And because I . . .
And because I'm not restless in my mind
And because time was on his side
And before you can count from one to ten
And began the next song
And began to shout
And bid farewell and not give a damn
And bid them look sharp in the mornin'
And bid them take that as fair warning
And Big Jim was standin' there, ya couldn't say surprised
And booked William Zanzinger for first-degree murder
And bowed my head and cried
And boys it ain't far off
And bring it on home
And brought it to you
And build you a house made out of stainless steel
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
And by any number of bets in the book
And call it wine
And call you mine
And can't see another day
And careful not to go to her too soon
And cast it to the wind
And cast off like criminals
And catch the next train
And charm the whistle off an evening train
And cleaned out the bank safe, it's said that they got off with quite a haul
And climb on every rung
And clouds unbound by laws
And clung to a new love's breast
And come away with me
And comes to a permanent stop
And commanding her to yield
And crashed through the window
And crime don't have a face
And cruel death surrenders with its pale ghost retreating
And didn't even talk to the people at the table
And discovered they wus red stripes on the American flag!
And don't criticize
And don't go mistaking Paradise
And don't speak too soon
And drink the king's health in the morning
And dropping a bar bell he points to the sky
And ducked as he swung
And each one I've never seen again
And emptied the ashtrays on a whole other level
And even if the flesh falls off of my face
And every one of them words rang true
And every time I pass that way I always hear my name
And every time you get this close
And everybody likes to stop and speak
And everybody was feelin' fine
And everybody's shouting
And ev'ry cause that ever I fought
And ev'ry girl that ever I've hurt
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
And fall to the floor
And famines and earthquakes and hatred written upon walls
And farewell to the minutes
And fell down 69, 70 feet over a barbed-wire fence
And felt with my thumbs
And find somebody to fight
And find you're one cent short
And fishermen hold flowers
And for Christmas, buy her a drum
And for good luck I got my black tooth
And for me the greatest danger
And for you pretty baby
And forget my pride
And forgot about a simple twist of fate
And froze up inside
And furnish me with tape
And gallantly handed her
And gas that dog
And gave them kisses, one, two, three
And give him back the time he's done
And give them all another name
And gives it to me for a song
And glowed like burnin' coal
And God on their side
And got a job in a motel
And grab hold of my hand
And guarded them as they fell
And handed it to me
And handed out strongly, for penalty and repentance
And hang them down from the vine
And hard like an oak
And have it on Highway 61
And he always is blessed with a charming young wife
And he always lives pleasant and charmin'
And he asked me my name
And he asks for a rope and a pen that will write
And he can do it here.''
And he carries all his money
And he charmed the heart of a lady
And he didn't even ask
And he dropped his medals down into her hand
And he just walked along, alone
And he looked like he'd been through
And he moaned and he groaned
And He never give up 'til the battle's lost or won
And he never harmed no one
And he pays all his debts without sorrow or strife
And he said in one week
And he said yes I think it can be easily done
And he said, ''Well, well, well.''
And he says, ''Here is your throat back
And he says, ''How?''
And he says, ''You ain't so bad yourself.''
And he screams back, ''You're a cow
And he shuffled down the street
And he spoke through his cloak, most deep and distinguished
And he walks on stilts
And he was a friend of mine
And he was at the wheel
And he was told but these few words
And he went and did the Cat instead
And he wore a metal brace around his waist
And he wouldn't harm a life
And headed out for the western skies
And hear me tell my tale
And hear my sad complaint
And heat up some coffee grounds
And her postcards of Billy the Kid
And her silver-studded phantom cause
And he's following a star
And he's hungry, like a man in drag
And he's taught how to walk in a pack
And hide it in your case
And high office relations in the politics of Maryland
And his brain has been mismanaged with great skill
And his cabin fallin' down
And his cheeks in a chunk
And his crime it is none
And his eyes, they just tell him lies
And his face it did freeze
And his heart began to bleed
And his holdings are in Texas
And his jaws start closin with you underneath
And his meat you couldn't chaw
And his name is Diamond Joe
And hold your judgment for yourself
And how come he didn't drive a truck
And how I know I'll make it through
And how to throw the blade
And hung on a willow tree.''
And I ain't complainin' none
And I ain't got what I see
And I ain't never gonna be the same again
And I always said, ''Hang on to me, baby, and let's hope that the roof stays on.''
And I answer them most mysteriously
And I been to college, too.''
And I can't be the last to leave
And I can't let go, won't let go, and I can't let go no more
And I could never let you go, no matter what goes on
And I could not pretend
And I couldn't with you around my neck
And I covered her up and then
And I did not understand
And I didn't even get no jam
And I do hope you receive it well
And I do not really need to be
And I don't even care to have one
And I don't even think about her
And I don't know how much longer I can wait
And I don't really care
And I dreamed I was amongst the ones
And I drove 42nd Street
And I feel so depressed
And I freeze in the moment like the rest who don't try
And I got a coin to flip
And I grab me a pint, you know that I'm a giant
And I guess he'd been there for the whole night or more
And I had to get out quick . .
And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town
And I hear in my head what you say in your sleep
And I heard his door slam
And I hope that you die
And I hopped inside a cab
And I hung it up
And I in my armor, turning about
And I just got to tell you
And I just try to be
And I just turn my back while you silently die
And I know He will do it 'cause He's faithful and He's true
And I know no one can sing the blues
And I know that you know that I know that you show
And I know that you're gonna be mine one of these days
And I know what you're thinking of
And I laugh in the face of what sorrow brings
And I leaned my head and I gave a yell
And I left my home the first time
And I left without my hat
And I love her so
And I love you more than ever with that love that doesn't cease
And I must be gone
And I must go
And I must leave fast
And I must leave
And I nearly starved to death, boys
And I need you, oh, yeah
And I need you, yeah
And I never been quite satisfied
And I never did plan to go anyway
And I never had no armies
And I never saved a dollar
And I played my guitar
And I pulled down my pants
And I ran a bloody mile
And I said, ''Captain Kidd''
And I saw that his face looked just like mine.''
And I see through your brain
And I shuffled my feet
And I started walkin' backwards
And I still do not know
And I still got their advice oozing out of my ears
And I stood up so slow
And I stopped in for a beer
And I tell this truth to you
And I tell you on the side, that you better run and hide
And I thought of me
And I thought of you
And I tried to make sense
And I tripped on a stump
And I try to harmonize with songs
And I wait for them to interrupt
And I walk out on my own
And I want you to be that woman every night
And I want you to be that woman, all right
And I was born to be with you, you were born to be my bride
And I was brought up by my brother
And I was dying there of thirst
And I was on the street again
And I was runnin' down the road
And I was standin' on the side of the road
And I went looking for a cop
And I will always be emotionally yours
And I wonder
And I won't disagree
And I won't let go, and I can't let go, won't let go
And I would leave so soon that your man won't never know
And I would send a message
And I, I don't mind the pain
And I, I never took much
And I, maybe I did some just to please
And I'd only begun
And if I don't be there by morning
And if I don't make it
And if I had to wait for ten thousand years
And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
And if I see the day
And if it don't work out
And if my love is real
And if my thought-dreams could be seen
And if there is eternity I'd love you there again
And if things don't change soon, he will
And if this war comes and death's all around
And if we never meet again, baby, remember me
And if you don't underestimate me
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down
And I'll forsake my baby
And I'll go last
And I'll join the bravest rankers there
And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love
And I'll overtake my lady
And I'll play for Magdalena as we ride
And I'll rock you too
And I'll stand o'er your grave
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And I'll tell you a tale
And I'll tell you who to call
And I'll watch while you're lowered
And I'm a generous bomb
And I'm also glad I've had no friends
And I'm a-wheezin' in my chest
And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh
And I'm broke 'cause she is no longer first in my heart
And I'm glad I've had no parents
And I'm glad to have you in my arms
And I'm gonna let you pass
And I'm gonna ride into Omaha on a horse
And I'm in the shade
And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh
And I'm leanin' on the wheel each day
And I'm one too many mornings
And I'm seeing the real you at last
And I'm so glad
And I'm still carrying the gift you gave
And I'm still in this all-night cafe
And I'm sure he's a fine young man
And I'm tired of this bag of tricks
And in comes Romeo, he's moaning
And in the darkness of the room there was only Jim and him
And in the morning, milk the cow.''
And inside it the people made of molasses
And into every masterpiece of literature
And is buried in the mud
And I's left alone with three children
And is our purpose not the same on this earth
And it ain't in no cardboard-box house
And it ain't in no fat kid's fraternity house
And it ain't in the cream puff hair-do or cotton candy clothes
And it ain't in the dime store dummies or bubblegum goons
And it ain't in the fifty-star generals and flipped-out phonies
And it ain't in the marshmallow noises of the chocolate cake voices
And it ain't in the ones that ain't got any talent but think they do
And it ain't in the pimple-lotion people are sellin' you
And it ain't in the seats of a supper club
And it ain't made in no Hollywood wheat germ
And it ain't on Macy's window sill
And it ain't on no rich kid's road map
And it ain't on that dimlit stage
And it bothers you badly when your layin' in bed
And it cannot be repealed
And it drifted to the bottom of the sea
And it had to get done
And it is ragin'
And it makes me feel so sorry
And it makes you feel violent and strange
And it seems so unfair
And it was blowin' at my back
And it was far to the end
And it was long ago
And it was there inside the bars
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's all for the love of thee
And it's all for the sake
And it's all over now, Baby Blue
And it's alright, Ma, I can make it
And it's by and by I'll slip my chains
And it's Eastertime too
And it's fill up every space with a different kind of face
And it's hard times in the city
And it's keep down your head
And it's makin' me kind of tired
And it's makin you mad, it's makin' you mean
And it's my time to go
And it's only that I'm askin'
And it's ride yourself blind for the next town on time
And it's ride, Willie, ride
And it's roll back down to St. Petersburg
And it's still that sign on the cross
And it's that ol' sign on the cross
And it's up to you to say
And I've never been too impressed
And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off
And I've never had much money
And I've served time for ev'rything
And I've waited all day long
And joined up with the John Birch Society
And just for that one moment
And just set there waitin' for me to come
And keep away from pranks
And keep him good company.''
And keep me company
And keep your eyes wide
And knocked me off my feet
And know that it's for real
And laid his life on the line
And land in some funny lagoon?
And land in some muddy lagoon?
And landed fully blast
And later on as the crowd thinned out
And leaves you howling at the moon
And left them for dead in the morning
And let it burn, burn, burn, burn
And let others do for you
And life is brief
And light on your right knee
And like a harp did hum
And like Goliath, they'll be conquered
And like Pharaoh's tribe
And like poor galley slaves
And likewise, fears his death
And listen to it hiss
And live my life on the square
And lonesome comes up as down goes the day
And long black shaggy hair above her face
And look not for answers where no answers can be found
And Lord I'll love her till I'm dead
And Louie the King said let me think for a minute son
And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin' you to defy it
And Madonna, she still has not showed
And make all kinds of money and chicks
And make all rules for the ones that got talent
And man they expect the same
And many a gamble has been lost and won
And many a road taken by many a friend
And Miss Patty Valentine just nodded her head
And more and more and more and more
And more and more and more
And more work was cut
And move it on down the line
And much to reminisce
And muttered underneath his breath
And my best friend, my doctor
And my boots on my feet
And my football's sittin' on a barbed-wire fence
And my happiness is o'r
And my poor feet don't ever stop
And my road it might be rough
And my schooling was cut
And my skin will surely crawl if he touches you at all
And my time it isn't long
And my uncles from World War II
And my wig-hat was falling in my face
And nailing her to the ruins of her pettiness
And negativity don't pull you through
And neither will I take it from snappy young brats
And never realize the time
And never sat once at the head of the table
And never wake up
And ninety-nine years
And no liquor in the land to stop yer brain from bleeding
And no matter how you try you just can't say it
And no matter what they say
And no one is better 'n you
And no time to think
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And nobody has to think too much
And nothing would ever come between Lily and the king
And now he's buried in the rocks
And now he's stuck on top of the hill
And now I know you're dissatisfied
And now I stand here lookin' at your yellow railroad
And now I understand
And now I'm goin' to hell
And now the heart is filled with gold
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
And now you'd throw us all aside
And now, oh it's a gold mine
And of course, I knew she would
And old homes scenes of my childhood
And old men on the benches
And old men turning young daughters into whores
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
And old Mister Minuet paid for his dream
And on Lily Pond Lane when the weather was warm
And on the highway of regret
And on their promises of paradise
And one day he came passing by
And one day the ax just fell
And one deserving of affection?
And one was sent
And ordered him to do the Dog
And our choices were few and the thought never hit
And our ship was high upon the sea
And out there somewhere
And pack up your tent
And paint the daytime black
And pay the price and not take your advice
And pick it up
And picking up Angel who
And place them at the feet of a harlot
And placed them on a footstool
And play games with each other in their sand-box world
And played it pretendin'
And played the fife lowly
And plenty time for good romance
And point away from the past
And pray to the Lord
And push back the clock for me
And put 'em on a boat, send 'em up to Bear Mountain . .
