Lyrics

Don't Think Twice, It's Alright

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter anyhow
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
It ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road

Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did to much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's all right

I'm walkin' down that long lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye is too good a word pal
So I'll just say fare thee well

I an't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just sort of wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in callin' out my name pal
Like you never did before
It an't no use in callin' out my name pal
I can't hear you any more

I'm a thinking and a wonderin' all the way down the road
I once loved a man, a child I'm told
I gave him my heart but he wanted my soul
Don't think twice it's all right

Nice cover of the classic Bob Dylan song. I like the way it got changed from a male to female vocal and lyrical change appropriately made. Pleasant guitar and vocals/harmonies. Nice rendition.

Good recording, I thought only original songs got posted here. But you did a good job covering it. Not sure what else to say, great Dylan tune............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Great job Bobby!!
