"Dirt Road Blues" as written by and Robert Allen Zimmerman Bob Dylan....
Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til someone will let me ride
Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til someone will let me ride
If I can't find my baby I'm gonna run away and hide
Well, I been pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back
Pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back
Well, I been praying for salvation
Laying round in a one-room country shack
Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed
Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed
'Til there's nothing left to see
'Til the chains have been shattered and I been freed
But I been looking at my shadow, I been watching the clouds up above
looking at my shadow, watching the clouds up above
Rolling through the rain and hail
Looking for the sunny side of love
Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same
Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same
I keep on walking 'til I hear her holler out my name

    General CommentIt's odd how a reversion to the style of his very first record can be so refreshing.

    General CommentThis is when you have a perfect love, then lose it, you just lose yourself, run yourself to the ground (dirt road), and everything else that follows. The last lyrics should be til everything remains the same, changes the meaning entirely! He wants to become indifferent, because feeling everything in his level, it hurts too much.
