  • Seven days, seven more days she'll be comin'
    I'll be waiting at the station for her to arrive
    Seven more days, all I gotta do is survive.

    She been gone ever since I been a child
    Ever since I seen her smile, I ain't forgotten her eyes.
    She had a face that could outshine the sun in the skies.

    I been good, I been good while I been waitin'
    Maybe guilty of hesitatin', I just been holdin' on
    Seven more days, all that'll be gone.

    There's kissing in the valley,
    Thieving in the alley,
    Fighting every inch of the way.
    Trying to be tender
    With somebody I remember
    In a night that's always brighter'n the day.

    Seven days, seven more days that are connected
    Just like I expected, she'll be comin' on forth,
    My beautiful comrade from the north.

    There's kissing in the valley,
    Thieving in the alley,
    Fighting every inch of the way.
    Trying to be tender
    With somebody I remember
    In a night that's always brighter'n the day. Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
