Narrow Way

Written by: Bob Dylan
I’m gonna walk across the desert ‘til I’m in my right mind
I won’t even think about what I left behind
Nothin' back there anyway I can call my own
Go back home, leave me alone

Chorus
It’s a long road, it’s a long and narrow way
If I can’t work up to you
You’ll have to work down to me someday

Ever since the British burned the white house down
There’s a bleeding wound in the heart of town
I saw you drinking from an empty cup
I saw you buried and I saw you dug up

(chorus)

Look down angel, from the skies
Help my weary soul to rise
I kissed your cheek, I dragged your plow
You broke my heart. I was your friend ‘til now

(chorus)

In the courtyard of the golden sun
You stand and fight or you break and run
You went and lost your lovely head
For a drink of wine and a crust of bread

(chorus)

We looted and we plundered on distant shores
Why is my share not equal to yours?
Your father left you, your mother too
Even death has washed his hands of you

(chorus)

This is hard country to stay alive in
Blades are everywhere and they’re breaking my skin
I’m armed to the hilt and I’m struggling hard
You won’t get out of here unscarred

(chorus)

You got too many lovers waiting at the wall
If I had a thousand tongues I couldn’t count them all
Yesterday I could have thrown them all in the sea
Today, even one may be too much for me

(chorus)

Cake walking baby, you can do no wrong
Put your arms around me where they belong
I want to take you on a roller coaster ride
Lay my hands all over you, tie you to my side

(chorus)

I got a heavy stacked woman with a smile on her face
And she has crowned my soul with grace
I’m still hurting from an arrow that pierced my chest
I’m gonna have to take my head and bury it between your breasts

(chorus)

Been dark all night, but now it’s dawn
The moving finger is moving on
You can guard me while I sleep
Kiss away the tears I weep

(chorus)

I love women and she loves men
We’ve been to the West and we going back again
I heard a voice at the dusk of day
Saying, “Be gentle brother, be gentle and pray”

(chorus)
