Leaving of Liverpool (New Version) (Bob Dylan) Fare thee well, my own true love I'm leaving the first hour of the morn I'm bound for the Bay of Mexico Or maybe the coast of Californ So fare thee well, my own true love We'll meet another day, another time It's not the leaving that's grieving me But my own true love who's bound to stay behind The weather is against me, the wind blows hard And the sun she's turning into hail But I still might strike it lucky on a highway going West Tho I'm traveling a path, beating a trail I'll write you a letter from time to time As I'm rambling you can travel with me too With my hands and my head and my heart, my love I will send what I know back to you There's a place that I heard of where I might as well be bound Down round the Mexico plain And they say that the people all are friendly there All they ask of you is your name I'll tell you of the laughter and the trouble Be they someone else's or my own With my hands in my pockets and my coat collar turned high I will travel unnoticed and unknown Copyright Warner Brothers, Inc.
