I sang the song slowly as she stood in the shadows
She stepped to the light as my silver strings spun
She called with her eyes to the tune i's a-playin'
But the song it was long an' i'd only begun.

Through a bullet of light her face was reflectin'
The fast fadin' words that rolled from my tongue
With a long distance look, her eyes was on fire
But the song it was long an' there was more to be sung.

My eyes danced a circle across her clear outline
With her head tilted sideways, she called me again
As the tune drifted out, she breathed hard to the echo
But the song it was long an' it was far to the end.

I glanced at my guitar an' played it pretendin'
That of all the eyes out there i could see none
As her thoughts pounded hard like the pierce of an arrow
But the song it was long an' it had to get done.

As the tune finally folded i laid down the guitar
Then looked for the girl who'd stayed for so long
But her shadow was missin' for all of my searchin'
So i picked up my guitar an' began the next song.  up

  The Times They Are a-Changin' session 2, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 7.aug.1963, take 2, interrupted  

I sang the song slowly as she stood in the shadows
She stepped to the light as my silver strings spun
She called with her eyes to the tune i's a-playin'
But the song it was long an' i'd only begun.

Through a bullet of light her face was reflectin'
The fast fadin' words that rolled from my tongue
As the tune drifted out she breathed hard to the echo
But the song it was long an' there was more to be sung.

My eyes danced a circle ...  up

  Live, Royal Festival Hall, London UK - 17 may 1964  

Oh I strummed the song slowly as she stood in the shadows
She stepped to the light as my silver strings spun
She called with her eyes to the tune i was playin'
But the song it was long and i'd only begun.

Through a bullet of light her face was reflectin'
The fast fadin' words that rolled from my tongue
With a long distance look her eyes were on fire
But the song it was long an' there was more to be sung.

My eyes danced a circle across her clear outline
With her head tilted sideways her eyes called again
As the tune drifted out she breathed hard to the echo
But the song it was long an' it was far to the end.

I glanced at my guitar an' played it pretendin'
That of all the eyes out there i could see none
As her thoughts pounded hard like the pierce of an arrow
But the song it was long an' it had to get done.

As the tune finally folded i laid down the guitar
An' looked for the girl who had stayed for so long
But her shadow was missin' for all of my searchin'
So i picked up my guitar an' began the next song.  up
