Well it ain't no use to sit and wonder why,
If you don't know by now
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why,
It don't matter, anyhow
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
But don't think twice, it's all right

An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light,
A light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light,
I'm on the dark side of the road
Well I wish there was somethin' you could do or say
To make me wanna change my mind and stay
We never did much talkin' anyway
But don't think twice, it's all right

An' it ain't no use in callin' out my name,
Like you never did before
An' it ain't no use in callin' out my name,
I can't hear you any more
Well I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don't think twice, it's all right

Well I'm goin' down that long, lonesome road,
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word,
So I'll just say fare thee well

Well I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
I coulda done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right
Yeah don't think twice, it's all right
Yeah don't, think twice
Don't you ever, think twice,
Yeah don't, think twice, it's alright

    General CommentI don't think anyone has ever said "Fuck you, I'm outta here" to a lover in a longer or more round-about way.

    The Peter, Paul, & Mary version is the one that sticks with me.
