Everyone:

My local Wal-Mart goofed and put their copies out today, so I got one,
Three days early. so here's the lyrics. I'm not sure about the whiskey
line, but the rest are 100%.

Jeff


----------------------------------------

"waitin' for you"

I never dreamed it could be a summer made just for me
when I'm letting her have her way
I'm here to see what she has to say
aw, the poor girl always wins the day

I'm stayin' ahead of the game
and she's a-doin' the same
and the whiskey flyin' into my head
the fiddler's arm has gone dead
and talk is beginning to spread

when did our love go bad?
whatever happened to the best friend that I had?
it's been so long since I held you tight
been so long since we said goodnight

the taste of tears is bittersweet
when you're near me, my heart forgets to beat
you're there every night among the good and the true
and I'll be around, waitin' for you

well, the king of them all is starting to fall
I lost my gal at the boatman's ball
the night has a thousand hearts and eyes
hope may vanish, but it never dies

I'll see you tomorrow when freedom rings
I'm gonna stay on top of things
it's the middle of summer, and the moon is blue
and I'll be around, waitin' for you

another deal gone down
another man done gone
you put up with it all, and you carry on
something holding you back, but you'll come through
I'd bet the world and everything in it on you

happiness is but a state of mind
anytime you want, you can cross the state line
you don't need to be rich or well-to-do
I'll be around, waitin' for you

What a beautiful line. Thanks, Jeff.

Thank you for posting the lyrics.
I was eager to read them and am
now eager to hear them.

Where is this local Wal-Mart
of yours? I'll put on my thirsty boots
and go there, if it's not too far.

Thanks again, Barbara

I agree. That line is very good, as are a lot of the lines in it,
IMO. Can't wait to hear it in its entirety.

Dylan has never written a love lyric like this -- ever.

Would you care to expand on this thought Lloyd?

It's a poem to an equal, not to an object of desire, burnished with the
singer's yearning, idealized or otherwise, nor to a betrayer, a
"destroyer of worlds" (i. e. the singer's world.)

This cd won't be out in the UK for a long time. Could you post an mp3
of the song (downsampled if you feel that is best)?

It's a great compilation, it would have me queueing all night were I
certain it would be there in the morning, there is at least one,
undisputed, the purest gold, older even than the first Dylan - Lonely
avenue, Ray Charles - the way Dylan sings woke someone sleeping this
morning who said, ''What's that?''- it sounds like you want to hear it
sound, but 'he has never written a love lyric like this - - ever' - not
certain, wouldn't put a bet on it either way. That you'll hear it coming
through open windows big running skies no doubt.

now.
