To be alone with you, just you and me

Now, wonít you tell me true, ainít that the way it oughta be?

To hold each other tight, the whole night through

Everything is always right when Iím alone with you

 

To be alone with you at the close of the day

With only you in view while evening slips away

It only goes to show that while lifeís pleasures be few

The only one I know is when Iím alone with you

 

They say that nighttime is the right time to be with the one you love

Too many thoughts get in the way in the day, but youíre always what Iím thinkiní of

I wish the night were here, bringing me all of your charms

When only you are near to hold me in your arms

Iíll always thank the Lord when my working dayís through

I get my sweet reward to be alone with you

To be alone with you, just you and I

Under the moon, in the star-spangled sky

I know youíre alive and I am, too

My one desire is to be alone with you

 

To be alone with you, even for just an hour

In a castle high, in an ivory tower

Some people donít get it, they just donít have a clue

They wouldnít know what itís like to be alone with you

 

They say that nighttime is the right time to hold each other tight

All our worldly cares will disappear and everything will come out right

I wish the night was here, make me scream and shout

Iíd fall into your arms, Iíll let it all hang out

Iíll hound you to death, thatís just what Iíll do

I wonít sleep a wink 'till Iím alone with you

 

Iím collecting my thoughts in a pattern, moviní from place to place

Steppiní out into the dark night, steppiní out into space

What happened to me, darliní?, what was it you saw?

Did I kill somebody, did I escape the law?

Got my heart in my mouth, my eyes are still blue

My mortal bliss is to be alone with you

My mortal bliss is to be alone with you

I once held her in my arms, she said she would always stay

But I was cruel, I treated her like a fool

I threw it all away

 

Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand and rivers that ran through every day

I must have been mad, I never knew what I had

Until I threw it all away

 

Love is all there is, it makes the world go íround, love and only love, it canít be denied

No matter what you think about it, you just wonít be able to do without it

Take a tip from one whoís tried

 

So if you find someone that gives you all of her love, take it to your heart, donít let it stray

For one thing thatís certain, you will surely be a-hurting

If you throw it all away, if you throw it all away

One more night, the stars are in sight

But tonight Iím as lonesome as can be

Oh, the moon is shininí bright, lighting everything in sight

But tonight, no light will shine on me

 

Oh, itís shameful and itís sad I lost the only pal I had

I just could not be what she wanted me to be

I will turn my head up high to that dark and rolling sky

For tonight no light will shine on me

 

I was so mistaken when I thought that sheíd be true

I had no idea what a woman in love would do!

 

One more night, I will wait for the light

While the wind blows high above the tree

Oh, I miss my darling so, I didnít mean to see her go

But tonight, no light will shine on me

 

One more night, the moon is shininí bright

And the wind blows high above the tree

Oh, I miss that woman so, I didnít mean to see her go

But tonight, no light will shine on me

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colors you have in your mind

Iíll show them to you and youíll see them shine

 

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile

His clothes are dirty but his, his hands are clean

And youíre the best thing that heís ever seen

 

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Why wait any longer for the world to begin

You can have your cake and eat it too

Why wait any longer for the one you love

When heís standing in front of you

 

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

I long to see you in the morning light

I long to reach for you in the night

Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

 

16 May 1976, Fort Worth, Texas, Tarrant County Convention Center Arena. Released on Hard Rain (album)

 

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colors you have in your mind

Iíll show them to you and youíll see them shine

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

 

Forget this dance, let's go upstairs

Let's take a change, who really cares

Why don't you know, you got nothing to prove

It's all in your eyes, and the way that you move

So get this dance, let's go upstairs

 

Why wait any longer, [for] no need to complain

You can have love, but you might lose it

Why run any longer when you're running in vain

You can have the truth but you've got to choose it

 

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Till the break of day, let me see you make him smile

I long to see you in the morning light

I long to hold you in the night

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Throw my ticket out the window, throw my suitcase out there, too

Throw my troubles out the door, I donít need them anymore

íCause tonight Iíll be staying here with you

 

I should have left this town this morning, but it was more than I could do

Oh, your love comes on so strong and Iíve waited all day long

For tonight when Iíll be staying here with you

 

Is it really any wonder, the love that a stranger might receive

You cast your spell and I went under, I find it so difficult to leave

 

I can hear that whistle blowiní, I see that stationmaster, too

If thereís a poor boy on the street, then let him have my seat

íCause tonight Iíll be staying here with you

 

Throw my ticket out the window, throw my suitcase out there, too

Throw my troubles out the door, I donít need them anymore

íCause tonight Iíll be staying here with you

 

4 December 1975, Forum de Montreal, Montreal, Canada. Released on The 1975 Live Recordings

 

Throw my ticket in the wind, throw my mattress out there too

Throw my letters in the sand cause you've got to understand

That tonight I'll be staying here with you

I could have left this town by noon, by tonight have been to some place new

But I was feeling a little bit scattered and your love was all that mattered

So tonight I'll be staying here with you, get ready, cause tonight I'll be staying here with you

Is it really any wonder, the changes that we put on each others heads

You came down on me like rolling thunder, I left my dreams on the river bed

I can hear that lonesome whistle blowing, I hear that sumi's rolling too

If there's a driver on the road, then let him have my load

Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you

I can hear that lonesome whistle blowing, I hear that semi's rolling too

Duet Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash

 

(                [???]††† and it does no one no good)

(And everything† Iím sayingí, you can say it just as good)

(Well, youíre right from your side, and I am right from mine)

(both) Weíre both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

(From the crossroads of my doorstep, my eyes start to fade)

(both) And I turn my head back to the room where my love and I have laid

(And I gaze     †† the sidewalk and the sign)

(both) And Iím just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

(Itís a restless hungry feeling and it does no one no good)

(And everything† Iím sayingí, you can say it just as good)

(Cause youíre right from your side, and I am right from mine)

(both) Weíre both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

From the crossroads of my doorstep, my eyes they begin to fade

And I turn my head back to the room where my love and I have laid

And I gaze back to the street, the sidewalk and the sign

And Iím just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

(Down the street the dogs are barking and the day is getting dark)

(When the night begins to fall, the dogs will lose their bark)

(And I gaze across the street, to the sidewalk and the sign)

(And Iím just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind)

 

Itís a restless hungry feeling and it does no one no good

And everything† Iím sayingí, you can say it just as good

Cause you are right from your side, I am right from mine

Weíre both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

(From the crossroads of my doorstep, my eyes start to fade)

(both) And I turn my head back to the room where my love and I have laid)

(And I gaze across the street, the sidewalk and the sign)

(And Iím just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind)

 

Itís a restless hungry feeling the don't mean no one no good

When everything that Iím sayingí, you can say it just as good

You are right from your side, I am right from mine

Weíre both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

Wan't to take the first one?

 

(Down the street the dogs are barking and the day is getting dark)

(When the night begins to fall, then the dogs will lose their bark)

From the crossroads of my doorstep, my eyes they begin to fade

And I turn my head back to the room where my love and I have laid

And I gaze back to the street, the sidewalk and the sign

And Iím one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

The bottom lineís been snorted, the bottom cardís been dealt

No one knows like you know right now how truly bad it felt

 

All your life you wasted on dreaminí about the day

Worker bees kill off their queen and carry all her eggs away

 

Oh, then if you die feariní God and painfully employed

No, you will not go to Heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois

 

Up north in Chicago where booze makes no one blush

Memories come back to you in a double Bourbon rush

 

Memories that arenít all bad and neither, my friend, are you

There is an argument there must be some Heaven meant for hearts that are half true

 

Oh, and if you spend your whole life rolliní horses into Troy

No, you will not go to heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois

No, you will not go to heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois

 

Roll on blacktop highway, circles towards the sun

Springfieldís in the distance and thatís the last big one

 

After that comes judgment, oh, and judgment will be swift

You will be eliminated but hereís a parting gift

 

Oh, if you die feariní God and painfully employed

No, you will not go to Heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois

No, you will not go to heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois

No, you will not go to heaven, youíll go to Champaign, Illinois
