Down Along The Cove 1

Bob Dylan © 1968 Dwarf Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


29 Nov 1967
cd imgJOHN WESLEY HARDING

Down along the cove 
I spied my true love comin' my way
Down along the cove
I spied my true love comin' my way
I said, "Lord have mercy, mama
It sure is good to see you comin' today.''

Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
Down along the cove 
I spied my little bundle of joy
She said, "Lord have mercy honey
I'm so glad you're my boy.''

Down along the cove 
We walked together hand in hand
Down along the cove 
We walked together hand in hand
Everybody watchin' us go by
Knows we're in love, yes, they understand.

Down Along The Cove 2

cd imgMP3 Songs

Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
Lord, have mercy, baby,
Don't you know make me feel like a baby boy.

Down along the cove
A bunch of people there hangin' around
Down along the cove
A bunch of people were hangin' 'round
I said, "Lord have mercy, baby 
Ain't it a shame, they kick you up [..when you..] an' knock you when you're down."

Down along the cove
I feel as high as a bird
Down along the cove
I feel high as a bird
Lord have mercy, honey
Ain't it the sweetest word you ever heard.

Down along the cove
I seen the Jackson River Queen
Down along the cove
I seen the Jackson River Queen
Well, Lord have mercy, baby
Ain't it the biggest boat that you ever seen.

Well, down along the cove
You can lay all your money down
Down along the cove
You can lay all your money down
Yes, Lord have mercy, honey
Ain't it a shame baby, kickin' you up and knock you when you're down.

Down along the cove
I got my suitcase in my hand
All along the cove
I got my suitcase in my hand
I said, "Lord have mercy, honey
Ain't you glad that i'm your man."  up

Down Along The Cove 3


{Alternate lyrics, European fall 2003 tour, from Michael at The Dylan Pool}

Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
I said, "Lord have mercy, baby
You make me feel like a baby boy"

Down along the cove
A bunch of people milling around
Down along the cove
A bunch of people milling around
Lord have mercy, baby
Gonna knock you up, gonna kick you when you're down

Down along the cove
I feel as high as a bird
Down along the cove
I feel as high as a bird
Lord have mercy, baby
How come you never say a mumbling word?

Down along the cove
I seen the Jackson River Queen
Down along the cove
I seen the Jackson River Queen
I said, "Lord have mercy, baby
Ain't that the biggest boat that you ever seen?"

Down along the cove
You can lay your money down
I said, "Down along the cove
You can lay your money down"
I said, "Lord have mercy, honey
Ain't it a shame the way they shove ya and push ya around?"

Down along the cove
I got my suitcase in my hand
Down along the cove
I got my suitcase in my hand
Lord have mercy, baby
Ain't ya glad that I'm in the band?  up
