Bob Dylan Restless Farewell Lyrics

Last updated: 12/18/2014 05:09:29 PM

Oh, all the money my whole life spends,
Slips into the hands of friends,
Be it right or wrongfully;
Oh, every girl that ever I touched,
I did not do it harmfully, and every girl if ever I hurt,
I did not do it knowingly.

To remain as friends we need the time
To meet demands, and stay behind;
My feet are fast, they point away from the past.
When I see that the sign says, “closing time”...
I'll bid farewell,
And move on down the line.

Oh, every foe, that ever I faced,
The cause was there before I came,
And ev'ry cause that ever I fought,
I fought if full, without regret or shame.
Of ev'ry thought that's strung,
I might go insane if it couldn't be sprung.

Time ain't tall, but on time we depend
To be a special kind of friend.
Though the line is cut,
It ain't quite the end,
I'll just bid farewell,
Till we meet again.

A false clock tries to tick out of time
To disgrace, distract, and bother me;
The dirt of gossip blows into a ditch, and dusty rumors cover it,
Trying to make me quit;
But if the arrow is straight, and the point is slick,
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick.

So I'll make my stand, and remain who I am.
I bid farewell, down the road, again...
Darkness dies as the curtain is drawn;
May your eyes see the light of dawn
Like truth exposing wrong.
I bid farewell down the road, so long.

Then, his one true love wrote: 'Near or far,
The Light of the Lord will be shining like a star,
He'll be with you, where you are;
Keeping you safe, keeping you warm
Giving you a song in the night,
As you go along’...

It's not the leavin' that's causing grievin'
But that she wasn't prepared for leavin', too.
So it's, Fare thee well,
True Love, True.
We'll meet another day, another time,
Move on down the line

Rememberin’ what "Grandma said, 
‘Go and follow your heart, (not your head)
And you'll be fine at the end of the line;
Don't you and your one true love ever part,
All that's gold, doesn't shine'.
Follow your heart, and you’ll be fine’.

And my true love said,
“I’m not gonna try to make you stay,
You said you have to go, so go today.
If you see me talking to another guy,
It’s because of my love for his soul,
The Lord has me witness where ever I go.

My heart is steadfast, my love is true,
I’ll be here waiting just for you,
If yours is, too.
Do what you have to do.
I have no chains to put on you.”
