Something There Is About You

6 Nov 1973

Planet Waves session 3, Village Recorder, Santa Monica CA - 6.nov.1973  

Something there is about you that strikes a match in me
Is it the way your belly moves or is it the way your hair blows free?
Or is it because you remind me of something that used to be
Something that's crossed over from another century.

Thought i'd shaken the wonder an' the phantoms of my youth
Rainy days on the great lakes, walkin' the hills of old Duluth
There was me an' Danny Lopez, cold eyes, black night an' then there was Ruth
Something there is about you that brings back a long forgotten truth.

Suddenly i found you an' the spirit in me sings
Don't have to look no further, you're the soul of many things
I could say that i'd be faithful, i could say it in one sweet easy breath
But to you that would be cruelty an' to me it surely would be death.

Something there is about you that moves with style an' grace
I was in the whirlwind, now i'm in some better place
My hand's on the sabre an' you picked up on the baton
Something there is about you that i can't quite put my finger on.
