"Meet Me in the Morning" as written by and Bob Dylan....
Meet me in the morning
56th and Wabasha
Meet me in the morning
56th and Wabasha
Honey, we could be in Kansas
By time the snow begins to thaw

They say the darkest hous
Is right before the dawn
They say the darkest hour
Is right before the dawn
But you wouldn't know it by me
Every day's been darkness since you been gone

Little rooster crowin'
There must be something on his mind
Little rooster crowin'
There must be something on his mind
Well, I feel just like that rooster
Honey, ya treat me so unkind

Well, I struggled through barbed wire
Felt the hail fall from above
Well, I struggled through barbed wire
Felt the hail fall from above
Well, you know I even outran the hound dogs
Honey, you know I've earned your love

Look at the sun
Sinkin' like a ship
Look at the sun
Sinkin' like a ship
Ain't that just like my heart, babe
When you kissed my lips?

    General CommentIts pretty upsetting to me that theres only three posts for such a great song. Especially because its off my favorite Dylan album of all time, Blood on the Tracks.
    My favorite part of this song is:
    They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn
    They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn
    But you wouldn't know it by me
    Every day's been darkness since you been gone.

    General CommentLook at the sun sinkin' like a ship

    Ole Bob was a cool one wasn't he. . . Perhaps Jimi was cooler in the late 60's.
    Morrison in 68.
    Lennon in 67.
    Plant in 72 -75.

    But no one was as cool as Bob for such a long time.

    General CommentAbsolutely flawless blues from Dylan, an underappreciated song.

    General CommentI think this song might be Dylan's plea at a reconciliation with Sara Lowndes. If you think in terms of the phases of a deteriorating relationship, the ordering of the tracks on Blood on the Tracks follows something like this.

    Track four, Idiot Wind: really bad fight between Bob & Sarah that destroyed their marriage.

    Track five, You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome...: She threatens leaving and inevitably does...

    It leads to the synopsis on top...Dylan was an artist whose talent knew no earthly bounds. I love this song, I love this album, I love Bob's musicianship. It's the most classic of all his material.

    General CommentThere is apparently no such intersection as 56th and Wabasha, but there is a town and a county in Minnesota by the name of Wabasha, and the movie Grumpy Old Men was set there! I lived in Minnesota as a kid, as did Dylan. The song makes me think of Minnesota and the traveling Dylan did by train in his early days. Blood on the Tracks is his best album, but a lot of people aren't familiar with it. Listen to it and it will haunt you forever.

    General Commentyeh, its just one those post relationship blues things..

    i mean, he's realised (similar to you're a big girl now) that he's made mistakes, but he also thinks he's done a lot right... and he really wants her back.

    he's got withdrawals... i get the feeling this was written in that period just after the break-up.

    he may realise later that it was for the best.. but right now he's suffering from bad withdrawals.. .all he wants is to be able to hold her again.

    General Commenthe sounds very sweey and tender
    the best thing about this song is not the music nor the lyrics, but the way he sings it

    General CommentYeah this song's great. It's like a groovy invitation to try and get her back and yet it's really sad. But great album, awesome song- Dylan's one of the best for sure.
