about

One of my favorite Dylan songs. I had forgotten about it until hearing it as a closing song from an episode of Mad Men. The old slow versoin by Dylan is married to a version I love by the Rice Brothers. I left out the third verse, as some others do as well hope that not sacrilege to one of the best songwriters this world knows.

lyrics

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you dont know by now
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter anyhow

When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' along
Don't think twice, it's alright

Well, it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road

Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
But we never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's alright


So I'm walkin' down that long lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well

I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's alright
