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

Oh i'm sailin' away my own true love
I'm sailin away in the morning
Is there something i can send you from across the sea
From the place that i'll be landin'.

No there's nothin' you can send me my own true love
There's nothin' i'm wishin' to be ownin'
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
From across that lonesome ocean.

Oh but i just thought you might want somethin' fine
Made of silver or of golden
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona.

But if i had the stars of the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss
For that's all i'm wishin' to be ownin'.

But i might be gone a long old time
And it's only that i'm askin'
Is there somethin' i can send you to remember me by
To make your time more easy passin'.

Oh how can, how can you ask me again
It only brings me sorrow
The same thing i would want today
I'd want again tomorrow.

Oh i got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin'
Sayin' i don't know when i'll be comin' back again
It depends on how i'm feelin'.

If you my love must think that a-way
I'm sure your mind is a-roamin'
I'm sure your thoughts are not with me
But with the country to where you're goin'.

So take heed take heed of the western winds
Take heed of the stormy weather
And yes there's somethin' you can send back to me
Spanish boots of Spanish leather.  up

  Witmark Studio, NYC - april 1963 

This imposes a real problem. Impose is that the right word? Supposes a real problem

Oh i'm sailin' away, my own true love
I'm sailin away in the morning
Is there something i can send you from across the sea
From the place that i'll be landin'.

No there's nothin' you can send me, my own true love
There's nothin' i wish to be ownin'
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
From across that lonesome ocean.

Oh but i just thought you might want somethin' fine
Made of silver or of golden
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona.

Oh but if i had the stars from the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss
For that's all i'm wishin' to be ownin'.

But i might be gone a long old time
And it's only that i'm askin'
Is there somethin' i can send you to remember me by
To make your time more easy passin'.

Oh how can, how can you ask me again?
It only brings me sorrow
The same thing i want from you today
I'd want again tomorrow.

I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin'
Sayin' i don't know when i'll be comin' back again
It depends on how i'm feelin'.

Well if you my love must think that a-way
I'm sure your mind is a-roamin'
I'm sure your heart is not with me
But with the country to where you're a-goin'.

So take heed, take heed of the western winds
Take heed of the stormy weather
And yes there is somethin' you can send back to me
Spanish boots of spanish leather.  up
