    Lyrics

    Words and music by Bob Dylan

    Well, today has been a sad and lonesome day
    Yeah, today has been a sad and lonesome day
    I'm just sitting here thinking with my mind a million miles away

    Well, they're doing the double shuffle, throwing sand on the floor
    They're doing the double shuffle, they're throwing sand on the floor
    When I left my longtime darling, she was standing in the door

    Well, my pa he died and left me, my brother got killed in the war
    Well, my pa he died and left me, my brother got killed in the war
    My sister she ran off and got married, never was heard of anymore

    Samantha Brown lived in my house for 'bout four or five months
    Samantha Brown lived in my house for 'bout four or five months
    Don't know how it looked to other people, I never slept with her even once

    Well the road washed out, weather not fit for man or beast
    Well the road's washed out, weather not fit for man or beast
    Funny, the things you have the hardest time parting
    with, are the things you need the least

    Well, I'm forty miles from the mill, I'm dropping it into overdrive
    I'm forty miles from the mill, I'm dropping it into overdrive
    Set my dial on the radio I wish my mother was still alive

    I seen your lover-man comin', comin' across the barren fields
    I see your lover-man comin', comin' 'cross the barren fields
    He not a gentleman at all,
    he's rotten to the core, he's a coward and he steals

    Well my captain he's decorated, he's well-schooled and he's skilled
    My captain he's decorated, he's well-schooled and he's skilled
    He's not sentimental, don't bother him at all; how
    many of his pals have been killed.

    Last night the wind was whispering, I was trying to make out what it was
    Last night the wind was whispering something,
    I was trying to make out what it was
    Yeah I tell myself something's coming, but it never does

    I'm going to spare the defeated, I'm going to speak to the crowd
    I'm going to spare the defeated, 'cause I'm going to speak to the crowd
    I'm going to teach peace to the conquered, I'm going to tame the proud

    Well, the leaves are rustling in the wood,
    things are falling off of the shelf
    Leaves are rustling in the wood, things are falling off the shelf
    You're gonna need my help sweetheart, you can't make love all by yourself.
