"You're Gonna Quit Me" as written by and Bob Dylan....
You're gonna quit me, baby
Good as I been to you, lord, lord
Good as I been to you, lord, lord
Good as I been to you

Give you my money, honey
Buy you shoes and clothes, lord, lord
Buy you shoes and clothes, lord, lord
Buy you shoes and clothes

You're gonna quit me, baby
Put me outta doors, lord, lord
Put me outta doors, lord, lord
Put me outta doors

Six months on the chain gang
Believe me, it ain't no fun, lord, lord
Believe me, it ain't no fun, lord, lord
Believe me, it ain't no fun

Day you quit me, baby
That's the day you die, lord, lord
That's the day you die, lord, lord
That's the day you die

Jailhouse ain't no plaything
Believe me, ain't no lie, lord, lord
Believe me, ain't no lie, lord, lord
Believe me, ain't no lie

Day you quit me, baby
That's the day you die, lord, lord
That's the day you die, lord, lord
That's the day you die

    General Commentdylan is such pretentious shit, i cant stand it...actually, i'm lying but i can't listen to him ever since a stoner whom i'm in love with said that dylan was "tight shit" and now i hate anything about bob dylan because i hate that i can never have my little stoner lover. i cant believe im actually writing this...

    I can`t believe bob dylan wrote this either...well thats because he didnt...its a traditional. Bob just came up with his own arrangement for this song...thats it. Both music and lyrics are by an unknown author. The meaning of the song is pretty clear though.

    It`s about an inmate who feels betrayed by his lover. well what is there to say...its a bit to obvious i guess

    General CommentYeah, I was gonna say... this isn't nearly obscure and twisted enough to be an original Dylan...
