Jeff Buckley Dink's Song (Fare Thee Well) Lyrics

Last updated: 07/28/2011 11:00:00 AM

(B.Gibson/B.Lomax/J.Lomax)
This is a blues traditional that has been performed also by Bob Dylan. Jeff performed it several times in his concerts, and he performed it also live on-air for The music faucet, a WFMU radio broadcast, on October 11 1992.
If i had wings like noah's dove
I'd fly up the river to the one i love
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

I hadda gal she was long and tall
She moved her body like a cannon ball
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

One of these days and it won't be long
Call my name and I'll be gone
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

I remember one night, a drizzling rain
Round my heart i felt an achin' pain
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well

When i wore my apron low
Couldn't keep you from my do'
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Now i wear my apron high
Scarcely ever see you passing by
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Now my apron's up to my chin
You pass my door and you won't come in
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well

If I'd jus listened to what my mama said
I'd be sleepin' in a feather bed
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well
