  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #1  

We carried you in our arms
On Independance day
An' now you throw all us aside
An' put us on our way
Oh what dear daughter would 'neath the sun
Would treat a father so
To wait upon him hand an' foot
Yet always answer "No''?

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief

It was all pointed out the way to go
An' scratched your name in sand
Though you just thought that it was nothin' more
Than a place for you to stand.
Now i want you to know that while you watched
Discovered that there was no one true
That i myself really thought
It was a childish thing to do.

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.

It was all very very painless
When you ran out to receive
All that false instruction
Which we never could believe
An' now the heart is filled with gold
As if it was a purse
But oh, what kind of love is this
Which goes from bad to worse?

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.  up

An' put us on our way
Oh what daughter beneath the sun
Would treat a father so
To wait upon him hand an' foot
Yet always answer "No''?

Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.

We pointed out the way for you to go
An' scratched your name in sand
Though you just thought that it was nothin' more
Than a place for you to stand.
An' i want you to know that while you watched 
Discovered no one was true
That i myself really thought
It was a childish thing to do.

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?

  The Basement tapes - may/october 1967, #3  

We carried you in our arms
On Independance day
An' now you throw'd all us aside
An' put us on our way
Oh what daughter beneath the sun
Would treat a father so
To wait upon him hand an' foot
An' always answer "No''?

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.

We pointed out the way to go
An' scratched your name in sand
Though you thought it was nothin' more
Than a place for you to stand.
An' i want you to know that while we watched
You discovered there was no one true
That i myself remember now
Thought it was a childish thing to do.

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.

It was all very painless
When you went out to receive
All that false instruction
Which we never could believe.
An' now the heart is filled with gold
As if it was a purse
But oh, what kind of love is this
Which goes from bad to worse?

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why am i always the one
Who must be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so alone an' life is brief.  up
