SHELTER FROM THE STORM

-

Bob Dylan menu

Tonalité :

T C 'was in another l G ifetime, o F ne of toil and bl C  ood
When blackness was a  G virtue and the r F  oad was full of mud
I c C ame in from the w G ilderness a c F  reature void of form
"Come  C in" she said, "I'll g G ive you s F helter from the s C torm"  G      F      C 
And if I pass this way again you can rest assured
I'll always do my best for her on that I give my word
In a world of steel eyed death and men who are fighting to be warm
 
 
Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved
Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm
 
 
I was burned out from exhaustion buried in the hail
Poisoned in the bushes and blown out on the trail
Hunted like a crocodile ravaged in the corn
 
 
Suddenly I turned around and she was standing there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
 
 
Now there's a wall between us something there's been lost
I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed
Just to think that it all began on a long forgotten morn
 
 
Well, the deputy walks on hardnails and the preacher rides a mount
But nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts
And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn
 
 
I've heard new born babies wailin'like a mornin'dove
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
Do I understand your question man, is it hopeless and forlorn ?
 
 
In a little hilltop village they gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation and they gave me a lethal dose
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn
 
 
Well, I'm livin'in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
And beauty walks a razor's edge someday I'll make it mine
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
