Bob Dylan - "Hero Blues" lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Yes, the gal I got
I swear she's the screaming end
So she can tell all her friends

She wants me to be a hero
Well, she begged, she cried
She pleaded with me all last night
She pleaded with me all last night
Well, she begged, she cried
She wants me to go out
And find somebody to fight

She got new movies inside her head
She reads too many books
She reads too many books
She got movies inside her head
She wants me to crawl back dead
She wants me to walk out running
Need a different kind of man, babe

You need a different kinda man, babe
You need a different kind of man, babe
One that can hold and grab your heart
One that can grab and hold your heart
You need Napoleon Boneeparte

Well, when I'm dead
No more good times will I crave
No more good times will I crave
When I'm dead
All over my lonesome graveYou can stand and shout hero
