"Watching The River Flow"

(As recorded by Bob Dylan)
BOB DYLAN

What's the matter with me
I don't have much to say
Daylight sneakin' through the window lamps
And I'm still in this all-night cafe
Walking to and fro beneath the moon
Out to where the trucks are rollin' slow
To sit down on this bank of sand
And watch the river flow.

Wish I was back in the city
Instead of this old bank of sand
With the sun beating down over the chimney tops
And with the one I love so close at hand
If I had wings and I could fly
I know where I would go
But right now I'll just sit here so contentedly
And watch the river flow.

People disagreeing on just about everything, yeah
Makes you stop and wonder why
Why only yesterday I saw somebody on the street
Who just couldn't help but cry
Woah but this ol' river keeps on rollin' though
No matter what gets in the way and which way the wind does blow
And as long as it does I'll just sit here
And watch the river flow.

People disagreeing everywhere you look
Makes you wanna stop and read a book
Why only yesterday I saw somebody on the street
That was-a really shook
Well but this ole river keeps on rollin' though
No matter what gets in the way
And which way the wind does blow
And as long as it does
I'll just sit here and watch the river flow
Watch the river flow, watching the river flow
Watch the river flow
Well I'll sit down on this bank of sand
And watch the river flow.
