  • Senor, Senor, can you tell me where we're headin'
    Lincoln County Road or Armageddon
    Seems like I been down this way before
    Is there any truth in that, Senor?

    Senor, Senor, do you know where she's hidin'
    How long are we gonna be ridin'
    How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door
    Will there be any comfort there, Senor?

    There's a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck
    And there's an iron cross still hanging from around her neck
    There's a marching band still playing in that vacant lot
    Where she held me in her arms one time and said
    "Forget me not"

    Senor, Senor, I can see that painted wagon
    Smell the tail of the dragon
    I can't stand the suspense here anymore
    Can you tell me who to contact here, Senor?

    Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeled
    Was that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field
    And a gypsy with a broken flag and flashing ring
    Said "Son, this ain't a dream no more, it's the real thing."

    Senor, Senor, you know their hearts are hard as leather
    Give me a minute let me get it together
    I gotta pick myself up off the floor
    I'm ready when you are, Senor

    Senor, Senor, let's overturn these tables
    And disconnect these cables
    This place don't make sense to me no more
    Can you tell me what we're waiting for Senor? Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
