Bob Dylan - "If I Don't Be There By Morning" lyrics

by Bob Dylan and Helena Springs
Private eye on my trail,
Blue sky upon the horizon,

And if I don't be there by morning
She'll know that I must've spent the night in jail.
Had an appointment set sometime for today

I been runnin' from Memphis to L.A.,
And if I don't be there by morning
She'll know that I must have gone the other way.
Finding my way home to you, girl, lonely and blue, mistreated too,

Sometimes I think about you, girl, is it true that you think of me too'
I got a woman living in L.A.,

I got a woman waiting for my pay,
And if I don't be there by morning

Pack my clothes, get down on your knees and pray.
I left my woman with a twenty-dollar bill,
Left her waiting, hope she's waiting for me still.

I guess that I never will.
But if I don't be there by morning
Sometimes I think about you, girl, is it true that you think of me too'
Finding my way home to you, girl, lonely and blue, mistreated too,

I left my woman with a twenty-dollar bill,
Left her waiting, hope she's waiting for me still.
Well, if I don't be there by morning
I guess that I never will
