Bob Dylan - "Farewell" lyrics

by Bob Dylan
Oh it's fare thee well my darlin' true,
I'm leavin' in the first hour of the morn.

I'm bound off for the bay of Mexico
Or maybe the coast of Californ.
So it's fare thee well my own true love,
We'll meet another day, another time.
It ain't the leavin'
That's a-grievin' me
But my true love who's bound to stay behind.

Oh the weather is against me and the wind blows hard
I still might strike it lucky on a highway goin' west,
And the rain she's a-turnin' into hail.
Though I'm travelin' on a path beaten trail.
It ain't the leavin'
So it's fare thee well my own true love,
That's a-grievin' me
We'll meet another day, another time.
But my true love who's bound to stay behind.

As I'm ramblin' you can travel with me too.
I will write you a letter from time to time,
I will send what I learn back home to you.
With my head, my heart and my hands, my love,
So it's fare thee well my own true love,
It ain't the leavin'
We'll meet another day, another time.

That's a-grievin' me
But my true love who's bound to stay behind.
I will tell you of the laughter and of troubles,
Be them somebody else's or my own.
With my hands in my pockets and my coat collar high,
I will travel unnoticed and unknown.
So it's fare thee well my own true love,
We'll meet another day, another time.
It ain't the leavin'
That's a-grievin' me
But my true love who's bound to stay behind.

I've heard tell of a town where I might as well be bound,
They say that the people are all friendly there
And all they ask of you is your name.
We'll meet another day, another time.
It's down around the old Mexican plains.
So it's fare thee well my own true love,
That's a-grievin' me
It ain't the leavin'
But my true love who's bound to stay behind
