Song For Woody

Album: They Lie In Wait
(Dylan)

I’m out here a thousand miles from my home
Walkin’ a road many men have gone down
I’m seein’ your world of people and things
Your paupers and peasants and princes and kings

Hey, hey Woody Guthrie, I’ll sing you this song
About a funny old world that’s a-comin’ along
Seems sick an’ it’s hungry, it’s tired an’ it’s torn
It looks like it’s a-dyin’ an’ it’s hardly been born

Hey, Woody Guthrie but I know that you know  
All the things that I’m a-sayin’ an’ a-many times more
I’m a-singin’ you this song, but I can’t sing enough
‘Cause there’s not many men who done the things that you’ve done

Here’s to Cisco and Sonny and Leadbelly too
And to all the great people that traveled with you
Here’s to the hearts and the hands of the men
That come with the dust and are gone with the wind

I’m a-leavin’ tomorrow, but I could leave today
Somewhere down the road someday
The very last thing that I’d want to do
Is to say I’ve been hittin’ some hard travelin’ too
