BOB DYLAN THOMAS

Do not think twice because it’s alright,
Sad eyed lady standing in the rain;
Lay lady, lay in your blue gown at night.

I’ve been gone far too long from your sight,
Here with the Memphis blues again
Do not think twice because it’s alright,

I miss home, a hurricane still full of fight,
Knock, knocking on heavens door, my friend,
Lay lady, lay in your blue gown at night.

Stuck inside of Mobile, far from sight,
A hard rain’s gonna fall, Zimmerman!
Do not think twice because it’s alright.

Brave men, lovesick and blue, too uptight,
find the right to love just like a woman,
Lay lady, lay in your blue gown at night.

Along the watchtower the question is right
The answer is blowing in the wind
Do not think twice because it’s alright,
Lay lady, lay in your blue gown at night.

HOMESICK BLUES

A hard rain’s gonna fall, and all I can think of
is my sad eyed lady of the lowlands.
A rainy day woman, she stands
down in the flood watching
the river flow. The current is strong
and I’ve been gone far too long;
bound with cold irons. I miss home.
And if I gotta serve somebody, it may as well
be her. I’d been stuck inside of Mobile
with the Memphis blues again.
I shall be released and I’ll be knocking
on heaven’s door; her blue nightgown
tangled at our feet. No longer love sick.
Memories thick and windblown, she’s shown
she can love just like a woman. Lay lady.
Lay with the pent up passion of the
hurricane within. Don’t have second thoughts.
It’s alright. It’s a changing world
I have resurfaced; have a purpose.
Your rolling stone has come home.
