"Sara" as written by and Bob Dylan Dylan Bob....
I laid on a dune, I looked at the sky.
When the children were babies, and played on the beach
you came up behind me, I saw you go by.
You were always so close, but still within reach.

Sara, oh Sara, whatever made you want to change your mind
Sara, oh Sara, so easy to look at, so hard to define.

I can still see them playing with their pails in the sand.
They run to the water, their buckets to fill.
I can still see the shells falling out of their hands as they follow eachother back up the hill.

Sara, oh Sara, sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life.
Sara, oh Sara, radiant jewel, mystical wife.

Sleeping in the woods by a fire in the night
Drinking white rum in a Portugal bar.
Then playing leap frog, hear about Snow White.
You in a market place in Savanna-la-Mar.

Sara, oh Sara, It's all so clear, I could never forget.
Sara, oh Sara, loving you is the one thing I'll never regret.

Oh I could still hear the sounds of those methodist bells
I'd taken the cure and had just gotten through
Staying up for days in the Chelsea Hotel,
writing "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" for you.

Sara, oh Sara, where ever we travel, we're never apart.
Sara, oh Sara, beautiful lady, so dear to my heart.
How did I meet you, I don't know.
A messenger sent me, in a tropical storm.
You were there in the winter, moonlight on the snow
And on Lilly Pond Lane, when the weather was warm.

Sara, oh Sara, Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress
Sara, oh Sara, you must forgive me for my unworthiness.

Sara, oh Sara, whatever made you want to change your mind
Sara, oh Sara, so easy to look at, so hard to define.

Now the beach is deserted, except for some kelp, and a piece of old ship that lies on the shore.
You always responded when I needed your help.
You give me a map, and a key to your door.

Sara, oh Sara, glamorous nymph, with an arrow and bow.
Sara, oh Sara, don't ever leave me, don't ever go.

Sara, oh Sara, whatever made you want to change your mind
Sara, oh Sara, so easy to look at, so hard to define.
