Now, look here dear Sue
You best feed the cat
The cat needs feedin'
You're the one to do it
Get you hat, feed the cat
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Oh, oh, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's a-gonna come
Whoo-ee, are we gonna set
Down into the easy chair.

Look here you bunch of basement noise
You ain't no punchin' bag
I see you walkin' out there
And you're the one to do it
Pick up your nose, you canary(?)
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's a-gonna come
Whoo-ee, are we gonna set
Down into the easy chair.

Just pick up that oil cloth
Cram it in the corner
I don't care if your name is Michael
You're gonna need some boards
Get your lunch you foreign bib
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's a-gonna come
Whoo-ee, are we gonna set
Down into the easy chair.

Now look here, you pile of money
You best go there to find a pal
I see out beatin' down your hammer
You ain't no head lettuce
Feed that buzzard, lay him on the rug
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Oh, oh, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's a-gonna come
Whoo-ee, are we gonna set
Down into the easy chair.  up

  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #2  

Clouds so swift, rain won't lift
Gate won't close, the railings froze
Get your mind off wintertime
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair.

I don't care how many letters they sent
Morning came and morning went
Pick up your money and pack up your tent
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair.

Buy me a flute an' a gun that shoots
Tailgates 'n' substitutes
Strap yourself to the tree with roots
You ain't goin' nowhere.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair.

Genghis Khan, he could not keep
All his kings supplied with sleep
We'll climb that hill no matter how steep
When we come up to it.

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair.  up

My bride's a-gonna come
Whoo-ee, are we gonna fly
Down into the easy chair.

A flute that toots an' a bee that stings

A fish that walks an' a dog that talks.
