Bob Dylan - "Bye Bye" lyrics

Words and music by bob dylan

By and by, Im breathin a lovers sigh
Im singin loves praises with sugar coated rhyme
While Im sittin on my watch so I can be on time

By and by, on you Im castin my eye

Im paintin the town, swingin my partner around

Well I know who I can depend on, I know who to trust
Im watchin the road, Im studyin the dust

Im paintin the town, makin my last go-round

Well Im scufflin and Im shufflin and Im walkin on briars

Im not even aquainted with my own desires

Im rollin slow, Im doin all I know

That I still got a dream that hasnt been repossessed
Im tellin myself Ive found true happiness

Im rollin slow goin where the wild roses grow

Well, the future for me is already a thing of the past
You were my first love and you will be my last

Papa gone mad, mama shes feelin sad

Well, Im gonna baptize you in fire so you can sin no more

Gonna make you see just how loyal and true a man can beI wanna establish my rule through civil war
