Mississippi [Version 2]


by Bob Dylan. Buy album CD: Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8


Every step of the way we walk the line
Your days are numbered, so are mine
Time is pillin' up, we struggle and we scrape
All boxed in nowhere to escape

City's just a jungle, more games to play
But trapped in the heart of it trying to get away
I was raised in the country, been workin' in the town
I been in trouble since I set my suitcase down

Ain't got nothing for you, I had nothing before
Don't even have anything for myself anymore
Sky's full of fire and the pain is pourin' down
Nothing you can sell me, I'll see you around

All my powers of expression and thoughts so sublime
Could never do you justice in reason or rhyme
There's only one thing I did wrong
Stayed in Mississippi a day too long

The devil's in the alley, the mule's kickin' in the stall
Say anything you wanna I have heard it all
I was thinkin' about the things that Rosie said
I was dreaming I was sleeping in Rosie's bed

Walking through the leaves falling from the trees
Feeling like a stranger nobody sees
So many things we never will undo
I know you're sorry, I'm sorry too

Some people will offer you their hand and some won't
Last night I knew you, tonight I don't
I need somethin' strong to distract my mind
I'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind

Well, I got here following the southern star
I crossed that river just to be where you are
The only one thing I did wrong
Stayed in Mississippi a day too long

Well, my ship's been split to splinters, it's sinking fast
I'm drownin' in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothin' but affection for those who've sailed with me

Everybody movin' if they ain't already there
Everybody's got to move somewhere
Stick with me baby anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now

My clothes are wet, tight on my skin
Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in
I know that fortune is waitin' to be kind
So give me your hand and say you'll be mine

The emptiness is endless, cold as the clay
You can always come back but you can't come back all the way
There's only one thing I did wrong
Stayed in Mississippi a day too long
