If You See Her, Say Hello

Album: Blood on the Tracks (1974)
  • If you see her, say hello
    She might be in Tangier
    She left here last early spring
    Is livin' there, I hear
    Say for me that I'm all right
    Though things get kind of slow
    She might think that I've forgotten her
    Don't tell her it isn't so

    We had a falling-out
    Like lovers often will
    And to think of how she left that night
    It still brings me a chill
    And though our separation
    It pierced me to the heart
    She still lives inside of me
    We've never been apart

    If you get close to her
    Kiss her once for me
    I always have respected her
    For doin' what she did and gettin' free
    Oh, whatever makes her happy
    I won't stand in the way
    Though the bitter taste still lingers on
    From the night I tried to make her stay

    I see a lot of people
    As I make the rounds
    And I hear her name here and there
    As I go from town to town
    And I've never gotten used to it
    I've just learned to turn it off
    Either I'm too sensitive
    Or else I'm gettin' soft

    Sundown, yellow moon
    I replay the past
    I know every scene by heart
    They all went by so fast
    If she's passin' back this way
    I'm not that hard to find
    Tell her she can look me up
    If she's got the time Writer/s: Bob Dylan
