cd imgOH MERCY
cd imgPURE DYLAN - AN INTIMATE LOOK AT BOB DYLAN

  Oh Mercy session 4, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 12.mar.1989, take 3, album version  

Most of the time, i'm clear focused all around
Most of the time, i can keep both feet on the ground
I can follow the path, i can read the sign
Stay right with it when the road upwinds
I can handle whatever i stumble upon
I don't even notice she's gone
Most of the time.

Most of the time, it's well understood
Most of the time, i wouldn't change it if i could
I can make it all match up, i can hold my own
I can deal with the situation right down to the bone
I can survive and i can endure
An' i don't even think about her
Most of the time.

Most of the time, my head is on straight
Most of the time, i'm strong enough not to hate
I don't build up illusion 'til it makes me sick
I ain't afraid of confusion no matter how thick
I can smile in the face of mankind
Don't even remember what her lips felt like on mine
Most of the time.

Most of the time, she ain't even in my mind
I wouldn't know her if i saw her, she's that far behind
Most of the time, i can't even be sure
If she was ever with me or if i was ever with her.

Most of the time, i'm halfways content
Most of the time, i know exactly where it all went
I don't cheat on myself, i don't run an' hide
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
I don't compromise an' i don't pretend
I don't even care 'f i ever see her again
Most of the time.  up

Most Of The Time 2


12 Mar 1989
cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 8 TELL TALE SIGNS RARE AND UNRELEASED 1989-2006

  Oh Mercy session 4, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 12.mar.1989, take 4, acoustic, BS-8 version   

Most of the time, i'm clear focused all around
Most of the time, i can keep both feet on the ground
I can follow the path, i can read the sign
Stay right with it when the road upwinds
I can handle whatever i stumble upon
I don't even notice she's gone
Most of the time.

Most of the time, i'm cool underneath
Most of the time, i can keep it right between my teeth
I can solve any riddle, i can hold my own
Deal with the situation right down to the bone
I can survive, i can endure
I don't even think about her
Most of the time.

Most of the time, my head is on straight
Most of the time, i'm strong enough not to hate
I got enough faith and i got enough strength
I keep it all away, way beyond arm length
I can smile in the face of mankind
Don't even remember what her lips felt like on mine
Most of the time.

Most of the time, she ain't even in my mind
I wouldn't know her if i saw her, she's that far behind
Most of the time, i can't even be sure
If she was ever with me or if i was ever with her.

Most of the time, i'm halfways content
Most of the time, i know exactly where it all went
I don't cheat on myself, i don't run an' hide
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
I don't compromise nor pretend
I don't even care if i ever see her again
Most of the time.  up

Most of the time, i'm clear focused all around
Most of the time, i can keep both feet on the ground

Stay right with it when the road upwinds

Most of the time, it don't matter where it went
I don't cheat on myself, i don't run an' hide
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
