    "Narrow Way" Lyrics

    Bob Dylan

    I'm gonna walk across the desert, 'til I'm in my right mind.
    I won't even think about, what I left behind
    Nothing back there anyway, that I can call my own
    Go back home, leave me alone
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I can't work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    Ever since the British, burned the White House down
    There's a bleeding wound, in the heart of town
    I saw you drinking, from an empty cup
    I saw you buried, and I saw you dug up
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way

    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    Look down angel, from the skies
    Help my, weary soul to rise
    I kissed her cheek, I dragged your plough
    You broke my heart, I was your friend 'til now.
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    In the courtyard, of the golden sun
    You stand and fight, or you break and run
    You went and lost, your lovely head
    For a drink of wine, and a crust of bread
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    We looted and we plundered, on distant shores
    Why is my share, not equal to yours

    Your father left you, your mother too
    Even death has, washed it's hands of you
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    This is hard country, to stay alive in
    Blades are everywhere, and they're breaking my skin
    I'm armed to the hilt, and I'm struggling hard
    You won't get out, of here unscarred.
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    You got too many lovers, waiting at the wall
    About a thousand tons, I couldn't count them all
    Yesterday, I could've thrown them all in the sea
    Today, even one, may be too much for me
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday


    Can't walk them baby, you could do no wrong
    Put your arms around me, where they belong
    I won't take you under, for the ghost to ride
    Lay my hands all over ya, tie you to my side
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    I've got a heavy stacked woman, with a smile on her face
    And she has crowned, my soul with grace
    Im still hurting from an arrow, that pierced my chest
    I'm gonna have to take my head, and bury it between your breasts
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    Been dark all night, but now it's dawn
    The moving finger, is moving on
    You can guard me, while I sleep
    Piss away, the tears I weep
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday

    I love women, and she loves men
    We've been to the west, and we going back again
    I heard a voice, at the dusk of day
    Saying, "Be gentle brother, be gentle and pray."
    It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
    If I cant work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday
