If Dogs Run Free 1

Bob Dylan © 1970 Big Sky Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


5 June 1970
cd imgNEW MORNING
cd imgCHRONIQUES VOLUME 1

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

If dogs run free, why not we
Across this swoopin' plain?
My ears hear a symphony
Two mules, trains an' the wind
The best is always yet to come
That's what they explain to me
Just do your thing
You'll be king
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free, why not me
Across the swamp of time
My mind weaves a symphony
An' tapestry of rhyme
Oh winds which rush my tale to thee
So it may flow an' be
To each his own
It's all unknown
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free then what must be
Must be an' that is all
True love can make a blade of grass
Stand up straight an' tall
In harmony with the cosmic sea
True love needs no company
It can cure the soul
It can make it whole
If dogs run free.  up

If Dogs Run Free 2


5 June 1970
cd imgANOTHER SELF PORTRAIT (1969-1971) THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 1

  New Morning recording session 6, Columbia Studios, NYC - 5.jun.1970, take 1  

If dogs run free, why not we?
Across this swoopin' plain
My ears hear a symphony
Two mules, trains and rain
The best is always yet to come
Or so they explain to me
But every way is the right way
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free, why not we
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free, then why not me?
Across the swamp of time
My mind weaves a tapestry
A fine design, a rhyme
Oh winds which rush my tale to thee
So it may flow an' be
To each his own, it's all unknown
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free, why not we
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free then what must be
Must be and that is all
True love can make a blade of grass
Stand up straight and tall
In harmony with the cosmic sea
True love needs no company
It can cure the soul
It can make it whole
If dogs run free.

If dogs run free, then why not we?
If dogs run free.
If dogs run free, then why not we?
If dogs run free.
If dogs run free, why not we
If dogs run free.  up
