Bob Dylan - "Silvo" lyrics

Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is a coming on fast
Ain't complaining about what I got
Seen better times but who has not.

Silvio silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know.

When I come and knockin' don't throw me no bone
Honest as the next jade rolling that stone
I'm an old boll weevil looking for a home
If you don't like it you can leave me alone.

I can snap my fingers and require the rain
From a clear blue sky and turn it off again
I can stroke your body and relieve your pain

And charm the whistle of an evening train.
Silvio silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Find out something only dead men know
Silvio I gotta go

Give what I got until I got no more
I take what I get until I even the score
You know I love you and further more
When it is time to go you got an open door.

I can tell your fancy I can tell your plain
You give something up for ev'rything you gain
Since ev'ry pleasure's got an edge of pain
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Pay for your ticket and don't complain.
Silvio silver and gold

Find out something only dead men know.
Silvio I gotta go

Going down the valley and sing my song
I will sing it loud and sing it strong
One of these days and it won't be long
Let the echo decide if I was right or wrong.

Silvio silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Find out something only dead men know.(repeat)Silvio I gotta go
