Bob Dylan – Waitin' For You lyrics

I never dreamed it could be, a someone made just for me
When I'm letting her have her way
I'm here to see what she has to say
Aw, the poor girl always wins the day

I'm stayin' ahead of the game and she's a-doin' the same
And the whiskey flyin' into my head
The fiddler's arm has gone dead
And talk is beginning to spread

When did our love go bad?
Whatever happened to the best friend that I had?
It's been so long since I held you tight
Been so long since we said goodnight

The taste of tears is bittersweet
When you're near me, my heart forgets to beat
You're there every night, among the good and the true
And I'll be around, waitin' for you

Well, the king of them all is starting to fall
I lost my gal at the boatman's ball
The night has a thousand hearts and eyes
Hope may vanish, but it never dies

I'll see you tomorrow when freedom rings
I'm gonna stay on top of things
It's the middle of summer and the moon is blue
And I'll be around, waitin' for you

Another deal gone down, another man done gone
You put up with it all and you carry on
Something holding you back but you'll come through
I'd bet the world and everything in it on you

Happiness is but a state of mind
Anytime you want, you can cross the state line
You don't need to be rich or well to do
I'll be around, waitin' for you
