  • Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til someone will let me ride
    Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til someone will let me ride
    If I can't find my baby I'm gonna run away and hide
    Well, I been pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back
    Pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back
    Well, I been praying for salvation
    Laying round in a one-room country shack
    Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed
    Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed
    'Til there's nothing left to see
    'Til the chains have been shattered and I been freed
    But I been looking at my shadow, I been watching the clouds up above
    looking at my shadow, watching the clouds up above
    Rolling through the rain and hail
    Looking for the sunny side of love
    Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same
    Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same
    I keep on walking 'til I hear her holler out my name Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
