  • The many roads I've covered
    The many trails I've burned
    But when our paths did cross, love, whew

    My whole world made a turn
    And we got time to kill
    What a thrill, June and July
    We got all our love
    Buckets of the tears that we cried

    Now we don't cry no more
    Gonna bolt the door
    Don't know what we got
    But it feels like a lot
    We don't need no more

    When my day's work is done
    We could take in a jamboree
    But I just wanna sit down by the fire
    With my love right here beside me

    We got time to kill, Catskill
    Sweet by and by
    We got all our love, the sky above
    The twinkle in your eye

    Now where the wheel might roll
    Is where my love and I shall go
    We're gonna plant the seed
    There ain't nothing we need
    We found our own rainbow

    My love wants to have her fortune read
    And I know that she's in a hurry
    If we go along the straight and narrow
    You don't even have to worry

    We got time to kill, standin' still
    Go on, give it a try
    We got all our love, mountains of
    The trees are so high

    We don't need no big car
    Don't eat no caviar
    When we come to rest, we take to the nest
    You know where we are Writer/s: Robbie Robertson
