Bob Dylan - "Sign On The Cross" lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Now, I try, oh for so awf'ly long
And now, oh it's a gold mine
And I just try to be.
But it's so fine.
Yes, but I know in my head
And it's that ol' sign on the cross
That we're all so misled,
That worries me.

Now, when I was just a bawlin' child,
And it's all for the sake
I saw what I wanted to be,
But I was lost on the moon
Of that picture I should see.
And that old sign on the cross
Still worries me.
As I heard that front door slam,

Well, it's that old key to the kingdom,
Well, it's that old sign on the cross,
Well, it's that old sign on the cross

Like you used to be.
But, when I hold my head so high
As I see my ol' friends go by,
And it's still that sign on the cross

That worries me.
Well, it seems to be the sign on the cross. Ev'ry day,
ev'ry night, see the sign on the cross just layin' up
on top of the hill. Yes, we thought it might have
that I'm afraid it's lyin' there still. Yes, just a
disappeared long ago, but I'm here to tell you, friends,
little time is all you need, you might say, but I don't
know 'bout that any more, because the bird is here and
be closed. But I just would like to tell you one time,
you might want to enter it, but, of course, the door might
if I don't see you again, that the thing is, that the sign
on the cross is the thing you might need the most.

Is just a sign on the cross.
Yes, the sign on the cross
Well, there is some on every chisel
And there is some in the championship, too.
Oh, when your, when your days are numbered
And your nights are long,
You might think you're weak
But I mean to say you're strong.
If it begins to worry you.
Well, that's all right because sing a song
Yes you are, if that sign on the cross,
And all your troubles will pass right on through
