Bob Dylan Nettie Moore Lyrics


(Bob Dylan) Lost John's sittin' on a railroad track Something's out of whack Blues this mornin' fallin' down like hail Gonna leave a greasy trail Gonna travel the world is what I'm gonna do Then come back and see you. All I ever do is struggle and strive. If I don't do anybody any harm, I might make it back home alive. I'm the oldest son of a crazy man, I'm in a cowboy band Got a pile of sins to pay for and I ain't got time to hide I'd walk through a blazing fire, baby, if I knew you was on the other side Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore And my happiness is o'r Winter's gone, the river's on the rise I loved you then, and ever shall But there's no one left here to tell The world has gone black before my eyes Well, the world of research has gone berserk Too much paperwork Albert's in the graveyard, Frankie's raising hell I'm beginning to believe what the scriptures tell I've gone where the Southern crosses The Yellow Dog Get away from all these demagogues And these bad luck women stick like glue It's either
one or the other or neither of the two She says, "Look out, daddy, don't want you to tear your pants You could get wrecked in this dance." They say whisky'll kill you, but I don't think it will I'm ridin' with you to the top of the hill Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore And my happiness is o'r Winter's gone, the river's on the rise I loved you then, and ever shall But there's no one left here to tell The world has gone black before my eyes Don't know why my baby never looked so good before Don't have to wonder no more She been cooking all day, it gonna take me all night I can't eat all that stuff in a single bite The judge's coming in, everybody rise Lift up your eyes You can do what you please, you don't need my advice 'Fore you call me any dirty names, you better think twice Gettin' light outside, the temperature dropped I think the rain has stopped I'm gonna make you come to grips with fate When I'm through with you, you'll learn to keep your business straight Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore And my happines
s is o'r Winter's gone, the river's on the rise I loved you then, and ever shall But there's no one left here to tell The world has gone black before my eyes The bright spark of the steady lights Has dimmed my sights When you're around me all my grief gives 'way A life time with you is like some heavenly day Everything I've ever known to be right has been proven wrong I'll be drifting along The woman I'm loving she rules my heart No knife could ever cut our love apart. Today I'll stand in faith and raise The voice of praise The sun is strong, I'm standing in the light I wish to God that it were night Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore And my happiness is o'r Winter's gone, the river's on the rise I loved you then, and ever shall But there's no one here left to tell The world has gone black before my eyes
