Not Dark Yet
Jimmy LaFave Lyrics


Shadows are falling and I've been here all day
It's too hot to sleep time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet but it's getting there
Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet but it's getting there
Well, I've been to London and I've been to gay Paree
I've followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain't looking for nothing in anyone's eyes
Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear
It's not dark yet but it's getting there
I was born here and I'll die here against my will
I know it looks like I'm moving but I'm standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don't even hear a murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there

I've still got the scars that the sun didn't let me heal
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
Well my sense of humanity is going down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
Well I been to London and I been to gay Paree
I followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down to the bottom of a whirlpool of lies
I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes

Sitting here on the deck, thinking about my friend, who we buried Fri. Ronny was a Bob Dylan fan, so this just tops off the tragedy of his death. Jimmy knocked this one out of the park.

i am 75, just discovered him, & it's a reason to go on living...kudos!

sean thompson

Man, I think we all still miss that guy.

This is by far the best version ever recorded of this Dylan classic. RIP Jimmy!

Antonio de Mello Neto

He has the most honest and soulful voice ... gone to soon! sleep soundly brother Jim
I get tears hearing this song

Jaci McCrary

This is still my favorite version of this beautiful Dylan song. Jimmy sings it like no other can.

Lasse Kørner Petersen

this version is really great. But I still think that Dylan hits a certain emotion in his recording that isn't quite here. But like I said, this version is phenomenal.

Peter Vineberg

Jimmy does not necessarily make a song his own ( as has been said by me and others) the reality is he pays tribute to the writer, he gets it, whatever Bob Dylan or anyone else wrote, Jimmy feels itHis music is a compliment to the writer.Love it. Share with your friends and let's get Jimmy the recognition he deserves!!Pura Vida from Costa Rica

We lost Jimmy yesterday 5/21/2017 to cancer. He leaves a void only history can fill. He leaves behind his songs, love and inspiration. May God Bless.
