"You're No Good" as written by and Jesse Fuller....
Well, I don't know why I love you like I do
Nobody in the world can get along with you
You got the ways of a devil sleeping in a lion's den
I come home last night you wouldn't even let me in

Oh, sometimes you're as sweet as anybody want to be
Oh, when you get the crazy notion of jumping all over me
Well, you give me the blues, I guess you're satisfied
When you give me the blues I want to lay down and die

I helped you when you had no shoes on your feet, pretty mama
I helped you when you had no food to eat
Now you're that kind of woman that just don't understand
You're taking all my money and give it to another man

Well, you're that kind of woman makes a man lose his brains
You're that kind of woman drives a man insane
You give me the blues, I guess you're satisfied
You give me the blues, I want to lay down and die
Well, you give me the blues, I want to lay down and die

    General CommentAh... First song on his first album.
    He really hits the ground running.

    Original version was written by Jesse Fuller I believe.

    General CommentFairly self-explanatory, it's obviously about Star Wars.

    But seriously, this is probably one of my absolute favourite Dylan songs. Simple, compared to his other stuff, but so incredibly catchy.
