  Highway 61 Revisited session 3, Columbia Studio A - 29.jul.1965, take 12, "Single" version  

You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When i was down you just stood there grinning
You got a lotta nerve to say you got a helpin' hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that's winning.

You say i let you down, you know it's not like that
If you're so hurt, why then don't you show it?
You say you lost your faith but that's not where it's at
You have no faith to lose an' you know it.

I know the reason that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
Do you take me for such a fool to think i'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide what he don't know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say ''How are you?'', ''Good luck!'' but you don't mean it
When you know as well as me you'd rather see me paralized
Why don't you just come out once an' scream it?

No, i do not feel that good when i see the heartbreaks you embrace
If i was a master thief perhaps i'd rob them
And though i know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, it's not my problem?

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment i could be you
Yes i wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.  up

  Highway 61 Revisited session 3 - 29 july 1965, take 1-3, false starts  
  Highway 61 Revisited session 3 - 29 july 1965, take 4  

You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When i was down you just stood there grinning
You got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that's winning.

You say i've let you down, you know it's not like that
If you're so hurt, why then don't you show it?
You say you've lost your faith but that's not where it's at
You have no faith in yourself an' you know it.

I know the reason that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
Do you think i'm such a fool as to make contact
With the one who hides what he don't know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say ''How are you?'', ''Good luck!'' but you don't mean it
You know as well as me, you'd rather see me paralized
Why don't you just come out once an' scream it?

No, i don't feel that good when i see the heartbreaks you embrace
If i was a master thief perhaps i'd rob them
An' though i know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, it's not my problem?

I wish that just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that moment i could be you
Yes i wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.  up

And just for that minute i could be you
Ah yeah i just wish that for one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.  up
