cd imgPURE DYLAN - AN INTIMATE LOOK AT BOB DYLAN

I've got my back to the sun 'cause the light is too intense.
I can see what everybody in the world is up against.
Can't turn back, you can't come back, sometimes we push too far.
One day you'll open up your eyes an' you'll see where you are.

Sugar baby get on down the road
You ain't got no brains no how
You went years without me
Might as well keep goin' now.

Some of these bootleggers, they make pretty good stuff.
Plenty of places to hide things here if you want to hide 'em bad enough.
I'm stayin' with Aunt Sally, but you know she not really my aunt.
Some of these memories, you can learn to live with and some of 'em you can't.

Sugar baby get on down the line
You ain't got no brains no how
You went years without me
You might as well keep goin' now.

The ladies down in Darktown, they're doin' the Darktown strut.
Y'always got to be prepared but you never know for what.
There ain't no limit to the amount of trouble women bring.
Love is pleasin', love is teasin', love not an evil thing.

Sugar baby get on down the road
You ain't got no brains no how
You went years without me
Might as well keep goin' now.

Every moment of existence seems like some dirty trick.
Happiness can come suddenly an' leave just as quick.
Any minute of the day, the bubble could burst.
Try to make things better for someone sometimes, you just end up makin' it a thousand times worse.

Sugar baby get on down the road
You ain't got no brains no how
You went years without me
Might as well keep goin' now.

Your charms have broken many a heart and mine is surely one.
You got a way of tearin' the world apart, love see what you've done.
Just as sure as we're livin', just as sure as you're born.
Look up, look up, seek your maker, 'fore Gabriel blows his horn.

Sugar baby, get on down the line
You ain't got no sense no how
You went years without me
Might as well keep goin' now.  up
