[ Come all ye fair and tender ladies
Be careful how...] you treat young men
They're like a star of the summer morning
First they appear, then they're gone.

I wish i'd ve known before i courted
I'd have come in nobody's arms
I'd have locked my heart in a box of golden
And pinned it up with a silver coin.

But i am not a little sparrow
So i must ... and stay

Come All You Fair And Tender Ladies 3


3 Mar 1970
cd imgBOB DYLAN - 1970

 Self Portrait recording session 6, Columbia Studios, NYC - 5.mar.1970, take 1  


Come all you fair and tender ladies
Have warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
They first appear and then they're gone

I wish i'd have known before i courted
I would have call me none
I'd have locked my heart in a box of golden
And fastened it up with a safety pin

Come all you fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
They first appear then they're gone

I wish I was a little sparrow
And I had wings and I could fly
I'd fly away to my false true lover
And when she spoke I would deny

Come all you fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
First they appear then they're gone

Don't you remember our days of courting
When you lay your head upon my breast
You could make me believe by the telling of your mouth
That the sun rose in the west

Come all you fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
First they appear and then they're gone

I wish I was a little sparrow
But I am not and I can't fly
So I'll sit right here an' weep in sorrow
And try to pass all my troubles by

Come all you fair and tender ladies
Have warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
First they appear and then they're gone
First they appear and then they're gone
First they appear and then they're gone
