I'm Not There
Bob Dylan and The Band Lyrics


Thing's all right and she's all too tight
In my neighborhood she cries both day and night
I know it because I was there
It's a milestone but she's down on her luck
And she's daily salooning about to make her hard earned buck
I was there

I believe where she'd stop him if she wants time to care
I believe that she'd look upon beside him to care
And I'd go by the Lord and when she's on my way
But I don't belong there

No, I don't belong to her, I don't belong to anybody
She's my Christ forsaken angel but she don't hear me cry
She's a lone hearted mystic and she can't carry on
When I'm there she's alright but then she's not when I'm gone

Heaven knows that the answer, she's don't calling no one
She's the way, her sailing beauty for she's mine for the one
And I lost her hesitating by temptation lest it runs
But she don't holler me but I'm not there, I'm gone

Now I'll cry tonight like I cried the night before
And I'm released on the heights in but I'll dream about the door
It's alone, she's forsaken by her fate, worse to tell
"It don't have approximation", she smiled, "Fare thee well"

Now when I?ll teach that lady I was born to love her
But she knows that the kingdom waits so high above her
And I run but I race but it's not too fast or slow
But I don't perceive her, I'm not there, I'm gone

Well, it's all about confusion and I cry for her
Well, I don't need anybody now beside me to tell
And it?s all affirmation I receive but it?s not
She's adorned by the beauty but she don't like the spot and she won't

Yes, she's gone like the rainbow that shined yesterday
But now she's home beside me and I'd like her here to stay
She's a lone forsaken beauty and it's don't trust anyone
I wish I was beside her but I'm not there, I'm gone

Well, it's too hard to stay here and I don't want to leave
It?s so bad but amusing when she's hard, too hard to leave
It?s a load, it?s a crime the way she haunt me around
But she told, ?won't you hate me?? but [Incomprehensible]

Yes, I believe that it?s rightful, oh, I believe it in my mind
I been told like I said when I before carry on the grind
And she's on yet she told her like I said, ?Carry on?
I wish I was there to help her but I'm not there, I'm gone

It ain’t alright and then she's all too tight
In my neighborhood she cried both day and night
I know it because he was there..
It's a milestone but she's down on her luck
And she delay so long, then about to make him hard to buck
Now and then

I believe when she'd stop him if she wants time to care
I believe that she’d look up on deciding to care
And I go by the Lord, anyway she's on my way
But I don't belong there

No, I don't belong to her, I don't belong to every why
She's my Christ forsaken angel but she don't hear me cry
She's a long hearted mystic and she can't carry on
When I'm there she's alright but then she's not when I'm gone

Heaven knows that the answer she don't call on no one
She's the way, forsaken beautiful, she's mine for the one
And I lost her hesitation ‘bout temptation as it runs
But she don't follow me, but I'm not there I'm gone

Now I've cried tonight like I cried the night before
And I’m released on the high street but I'll dream about the door
It's alone she's forsaken by her fate with to tell
It don't have approximation she smiles “fair thee well”

Now when I treat the lady, I was born to love her
But she knows that the kingdom waits so high above her
And I run but I race but it's not too fast to slip
But I don’t perceive her, I'm not there, I'm gone

Well, it's all about diffusion as I cry for her veil
I don't need anybody now beside me to tell
And it's all affirmation, I receive, but it's not
She's a lone-hearted beauty but she don't like the spot
And she calls

Yeah, she's gone like the rain below that’s shining yesterday
But now she's home beside me and I'd like to hear her stay
She's a lone forsaken beauty and it don't trust anyone
And I wish I was beside her but I'm not there, I'm gone

Well it’s a too hard to stake in and I don't bob and leave
It's a bad course abusing and she’s a hard, too hard to leave
It's a low, it's a crime, the way she mauls me around
But she told for to hate me but this lone forsaken clown

Yes, I believe that it's rightful, oh I believe it in my mind
I've been told like I said when I’ve been for carrying on and crying
And she sold it to told her like I said, carry on
I wish I was there to help her but I'm not there, I'm gone

Lyrics:
Things are crashing down, she's all too tight
In my neighborhood she cry both day and night
It's a milestone but she's down on her luck
Days make her so lonely and it's so hard to buck
Now and then

I believe that she'd stop him if she'd find time to care
I believe that she may look upon deciding whose to care
And I go by the Lord, anywhere she's on my way
But I don't belong there

No, I don't belong to her, I don't belong to [Incomprehensible]
She's my Christ forsaken angel but she don't hear me cry
She's a long hearted mystic and she can't carry on
When I'm there she's alright then she's not when I'm gone

Heaven knows that the answer she don't con no one
She's the way forsaken beauty, she's mine for the one
And I lost her hesitating about temptation as it runs
She don't harm me, I'm not there I'm gone

Now I've cried tonight like I cried the night before
And I'll feast on the highway but I'll dream about the door
It's alone she's forsaken by her fate with to tell
It don't have approximation she is smiling fairly well

Her smile is contagious, I was born to love her
But she knows that the kingdom waits so high above her
And I run by the race but it's not too fast stayed
But I got the fever I'm not there, I'm gone

Well, it's all about diffusion as I cry for her veil
I don't need anybody now beside me to tell
And it's all affirmation, I'm asleep but it's not
She's a lone-hearted beauty but she don't like spot
And she calls

Yeah, she's gone like a rainbow that was shining yesterday
But she's home now beside me and I'd like her to stay
She's a lone forsaken beauty and she don't trust no one
And I wish I was beside her but I'm not there, I'm gone

It's too hard to stay here and I don't want to leave
It's so hard for so few you see but she's hard to, hard to me
It's a [Incomprehensible] it's a crime, the way she mauls me around
But she don't phone to hate me but it's down to make her crown

Yes, I believe that it's rightful, I believe it in my mind
I've been told like I said for carrying on crying
Yes, the soul gypsy told her like I said carry on
Wish I was there to help me but I'm not there, I'm gone

One of his greatest ever songs, and it remains unheard by most casual fans. This is quite hypnotic.

Filip Obajdin

Unheard by most, unintelligible to the rest

Yousef momtojachih

Couldn't agree more

Froggy Stardust

You know when people who are casual Dylan fans ask you what your favourite Dylan song is and of course it's an impossible question to answer ..... except.....it isn't. Cos this is my favourite Dylan song. And it's not even an actual song. It's more a kind of rendering of dream states by a man with the most heartbroken heartbreaking voice in the world. Just totally beautiful.

Lizzystardust Furrow

looked for the Complete Basement Tapes foreva pissed off every record shop asking for it for like 10 years

Mr. Horse

This song was written by some guy in the 50s. His name escapes me at the moment. But yeah this is one of my top 5 Dylan recordings.

Steve Wilson

That's a good description, kinda of like a song w no album. Or a single! Lol
No, really. It's an easy pick for favorite.
I honestly can't pick one

ferociousgumby

@Anfield Archer He threw away better stuff than most artists base their careers on. He is simply a fountainhead of creativity.

Anfield Archer

You're right. I'm obsessed with DYLAN and I have a different favourite song every other day. Plus when you tell the casual DYLAN fan you love the albums shot of love and saved, you get a funny look, like I've never heard these albums, some casual fans don't know brownsville girl used to be called Danville girl and was a much better version, imo
