The Man In Me 1

Bob Dylan © 1970 Big Sky Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


5 June 1970
cd imgNEW MORNING

  New Morning recording session 6, Columbia Studios, NYC - 5.jun.1970  

The man in me will do nearly any task
An' as for compensation there's a little he will ask.
Take a woman like you
To get thru to the man in me.

Storm clouds are ragin' all around my door
I think to myself i might not take it anymore.
Take a woman like your kind
To find the man in me.

But, oh what a wonderful feelin'
Just to know that you are near.
It sets my heart a-reelin'
From my toes up to my ears.

The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from bein' seen
But that's just because he doesn't want turn into some machine.
Take a woman like you
To get thru to the man in me.

cd imgDARKNESS AT THE BREAK OF NOON (T-016)

  Rehearsals before Tour '78, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica CA - 30.jan.1978  
 
The man in me will do nearly any thing
As for compensation, whatever you want to bring.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Lost on the river of no return
I try to make it to you but I'm afraid my heart will burn.
Take a woman like your kind
To find, find the man in me.

But oh, what a wonderful feeling
Just to know that you're really there.
It sets my heart a-reeling
Right from my feet to the top of the stair.

Oh, i can't believe it, I can't believe it's true
I'm lyin' next to her but I'm thinking of you.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Oh, what a wonderful feeling
Just to know that you're really real.
It makes my, makes my head go reeling
I can't believe that your mouth's 'bout to reveal.

I know you got a husband and that's a fact
But, ah baby, turn me loose or cover my track.
Takes a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.
Takes a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.  up

  Live, Pavillon de Paris, Paris - 6.jul.1978  

The man in me will do nearly anything
As for compensation, whatever you want to bring.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Storms [...] on the river of no return
I try to teach you how but I know that you'll never learn.
Take a woman like your kind
To find the man in me.

But oh, what a wonderful feelin'
Just to know that you're really there.
It sets my old heart a-reelin'
Right from my feet to the top of the stair.

How can you believe it, but I guess it's true
I'm lyin' next to her, baby, but I'm thinkin' of you.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Oh, what a wonderful feelin'
Just to know that you really exist.
It makes my, makes my head go reeling
All you got to do is look my way and baby i just can't resist.

Go down to the border beneath the sun
Callin' out her name but baby you're the one.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.  up
