"Black Crow Blues" as written by and Bob Dylan Dylan Bob....
Woke in the mornin', wanderin'
Weary and worn out
I woke in the mornin', wanderin'
Weary and worn out
Wishin' my long-lost lover
Would walk to me, talk to me
Tell me what it's all about

I was standin' at the side road
Listenin' to the billboard knock
Standin' at the side road
Listenin' to the billboard knock
Well, my wrist was empty
But my nerves were kickin'
Tickin' like a clock

If I got anything you need, babe
Let me tell you in front
If I got anything you need, babe
Let me tell you in front
You can come to me sometime
Night time, day time
Any time you want

Sometimes I'm thinkin'
I'm too high to fall
Sometimes I'm thinkin'
I'm much too high to fall
Other times I'm thinkin'
I'm so low I don't know
If I can come up at all

Black crows in the meadow
Sleeping across a broad highway
Black crows in the meadow
Across a broad highway
Though it's funny, honey
I'm out of touch, don't feel much
Like a Scarecrow today

    General CommentI like this song. When I first heard it, the thing that made me like it right away was how it was pretty different from Dylan's previous stuff becasue of the piano and everything.

    As far as the meaning goes, it just seems to be about a guy who's having a really hard time in a relationship and is just saying how he feels while trying to make things right. It's not perfect, but it's something...

    By the way, I don't think it's "Wasted and worn out", I always thought that it was "Weary-eyed and worn out". I might be wrong though...

    General CommentI meant "Weary" not "Weary-eyed". Peace.
