Pack up your sorrows Lyrics by Iris Dement

 

Pack up your sorrows by Iris Dement


(Richard Farina/Pauline Marden)
[duet with Loudon Wainwright III; from the "Bleecker Street" compilation album]
No use crying, talking to a stranger,
naming the sorrow you've seen
Too many bad times, too many sad times
Nobody knows what you mean
Chorus:
But if somehow you could pack up your sorrows
and give them all to me
You would lose them, I know how to use them
Give them all to me
No use rambling, walking in the shadows,
trailing a wandering star
No one beside you, no one to hide you
and nobody knows what you are
(Chorus)
No use gambling, running in the darkness,
Looking for a spirit that's free
Too many wrong times, too many long times
Nobody knows what you see
(Chorus)
No use roaming, going by the roadside,
Seeking a satisfied mind
Too many highways, too many byways,
and nobody's walking behind
(Chorus)
