Tangled up in Blue

Tangled up in Blue

Track by Bob Dylan




Early one mornin' the
sun was shinin'
I was layin' in bed
if she'd changed at all
If her hair was still red
Her folks they said our
lives together
Sure was gonna be rough
They never did like
Mama's homemade dress
Papa's bankbook
wasn't big enough
And I was standin'
on the side of the road
Rain fallin' on my shoes
Heading out for the East Coast
Lord knows I've paid
some dues gettin' through
Tangled up in blue
She was married
when we first met
Soon to be divorced
I helped her out of a jam
I guess
But I used a little
too much force
We drove that car as
far as we could
Abandoned it out West
Split up on a dark sad night
Both agreeing it was best
She turned around to
look at me
As I was walkin' away
I heard her say over
my shoulder
We'll meet again someday
on the avenue
Tangled up in blue
I had a job
in the great north woods
Working as a cook for a spell
But I never did like it
all that much
And one day the ax just fell
So I drifted down
to New Orleans
Where I happened
to be employed
Workin' for a while
on a fishin' boat
Right outside of Delacroix
But all the while I was alone
The past was close behind
I seen a lot of women
But she never escaped my mind
and I just grew
Tangled up in blue
She was workin'
in a topless place
And I stopped in for a beer
I just kept lookin'
at the side of her face
In the spotlight so clear
And later on as the
crowd thinned out
I's just about to do the same
