cd imgPLANET WAVES

  Planet Waves sessions - 5.nov.1973  

I've just reached the place where the willow don't bend
There's not much more to be said it's the top of the end
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.

I am closing the book on the pages an' the text
And i don't really care ooh what happens next
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.

I been hanging on threads, i been playing it straight
Now i've just got to cut loose before it gets late
So i'm going, i'm going, i'm gone

Grandma said boy go an' follow your heart
And you'll be fine at the end of the line
All that's gold doesn't shine
Don't you and your own true love ever part.

I been walking the road, i been living on the edge
Now i've just got to go before i get to the ledge
So i'm going, i'm just going, i'm gone.  up

Going, Going, Gone 2


1 Mar 1978
cd imgBOB DYLAN AT BUDOKAN

  Live, Nippon Budokan Hall, Tokyo - 1.mar.1978  

Well, I've just reached a place where I can't stay awake
I got to leave you baby before my heart will break
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.

Come over here babe, cause I'm telling you this
You got to believe me, you got to give me one more kiss
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.

Fix me one more drink baby and hold me one more time
But don't get to close to make me change my mind
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.

Now, my mama always said "Someday, too, you got to follow your heart"
"You'll be mine at the end of the line, all that's gold wasn't meant to shine"
"Just don't put your horse in front of your car"

Now, from Boston to Birmingham is a two day ride
But I got to be going now cause I'm so dissatisfied
I'm going, i'm going, i'm gone.  up

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

Well, i've just reached a place where i'm just felling kind of low
I don't mind leaving baby, i'm not afraid to go
I'm going, yes, i'm going, well, i'm gone.

Fix me one more drink baby and hold me one more time
But don't get to close, start make me change my mind
Cause i'm going, yes, i'm going, well, i'm gone.

I've been hanging 'round your place so long feelin' like a clown
You don't know how to do nothin' but tear a good man's reputation down
I'm going, yes, i'm going, well, i'm gone.

Now, from Memphis to Norfolk is a 33 hour ride
But i got to be going now baby cause i'm just so dissatisfied
I'm going, yes, i'm going, well, i'm gone.

Now, my mama always said something true "Follow your heart"
You'll be fine at the end of the line
All that's gold wasn't meant to shine
Just don't put your horse in front of your car.

Step over here baby and shake my hand
I can find another woman, you can find another man
I'm going, yes, i'm going, well, i'm gone.  up
