  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #1  

Nothing was delivered
An' i tell this truth to you
Not out of spite or anger
But simply because it's true.
Now i hope you won't object to this
Givin' back all of what you owe
The fewer words you will waste on this
The sooner you can go.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take care of yourself
Get plenty of rest1

Nothing was delivered
But i can't say i sympathize
With what your fate is goin' to be
Yes, for tellin' all those lies.
Now you must provide some answers
For what you sold that's not been received
An' the sooner you come up with this
The sooner you can leave.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take care of yourself
Get plenty of rest.

Now you know nothing was delivered
An' it's up to you to say
Just what you had in mind
When you made everybody pay.
No nothing was delivered
Yes 'n' someone must explain
And as long as it takes to do this
Then that's how long as you'll remain.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take care of yourself
Get plenty of rest.  up

  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #3, fragment 


Nothing was delivered
An' i tell this truth to you
Not out of spite or anger
But simply because it's true.
Now i hope you don't object to this
But you must give back what you owe
The fewer words you have to waste about this
The sooner you can go.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take heed of this
Get plenty of rest.

Nothing was delivered
But i can't say that i sympathize
What your fate is goin' to be
For tellin' all those lies?
Now you must provide some answers
For what you sell that's not been received
Yes you must, you must give those answers
The sooner you come up with those answers
The sooner you can leave.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take heed of this
Get plenty of rest.

Nothing was delivered
It's up to you to say
Yes it's up to you to say
If everybody has peace of mind
So you must begin right now to behave.
Yes i say again that nothing was delivered
Somebody must explain
As long as it takes to do this
Yes as long as it takes to do this
That's how long as you will remain.

Nothing is better
Nothing is best
Take heed of this
Get plenty of rest.  up
