You're A Big Girl Now 1

Bob Dylan © 1974 Ram's Horn Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


27 Dec 1974
cd imgBLOOD ON THE TRACKS

  Blood On The Tracks session 5, Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis - 27.dec.1974  

Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly knocked me off of my feet  
And i'm back in the rain, oh-oh
And you are on dry land
You made it there somehow
You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense
And i'm just like that bird, oh-oh
Singin' just for you, oh-oh
I hope that you can hear
Hear me singin' through these tears.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame that all we've shared can't last
I can change i swear, oh-oh
See what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You've known it all the time, i'm learnin' it these days
Oh, i know where i can find you, oh-oh
In somebody's room.
It's a price i have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.

A change in the weather is known to be extreme
But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?
I'm going out of my mind, oh-oh
With a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.  up

  Blood On The Tracks session 2, A & R Studios, NYC - 17.sep.1974, take 2  

Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly swept me off-a my feet
And I'm back in the rain, mm-mm
You are on dry land, mm-mm
You made it there somehow
You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense
And I'm just like that bird, oh-oh
Singin' just for you, mm-mm
I hope that you can hear,
Hear me singin' through these tears.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,
You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days
Oh, i know where i can find you, oh-oh
In somebody's room, mm-mm
It's a price i have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame that all we've shared can't last
I can change, i swear, mm-mm
See what you can do, mm-mm
I can make it through
You can make it too.

A change in the weather can be extreme
But it ain't like changing horses in midstream
I'm going out of my mind, mm-mm
With a pain that stops and starts, mm-ah
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.  up

23 May 1976
cd imgHARD RAIN

  Live, Rolling Thunder Revue 2, Fort Collins CO - 23.may.1976  

Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly knocked me off-a my feet
And I'm back in the rain
And you are on dry land
You made it there somehow
You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sitting on a fence
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense
And I'm just like that bird
Singin' just for you
I hope you can hear
Hear me singin' through these tears.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days.
Oh, i know where i can find you
In somebody's room
It's a price i have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.
Well i'll change, i swear
See what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too.

A change in the weather is always extreme
But what the sense of changing horses in midstream?
I'm going out of my mind
With a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.  up
