Baez, Joan - One Too Many Mornings Lyrics




Down the street the dogs are barkin'
And the day is a-gettin' dark.
As the night comes in a-fallin',
The dogs 'll lose their bark.
An' the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind,
For I'm one too many mornings
And a thousand miles behind.

From the crossroads of my doorstep,
My eyes they start to fade,
As I turn my head back to the room
Where my love and I have laid.
An' I gaze back to the street,
The sidewalk and the sign,
And I'm one too many mornings
An' a thousand miles behind.

It's a restless hungry feeling
That don't mean no one no good,
When ev'rything I'm a-sayin'
You can say it just as good.
You're right from your side,
I'm right from mine.
We're both just too many mornings
An' a thousand miles behind.

Baez, Joan One Too Many Mornings Comments
  1. Pat Daly

    purity and beauty and a thousand other words i cant dream up describe the voice of joan baez.

  2. Corinne ROUSSEL

    A great singer, a voice I really love, and an individual committment in human causes I greatly admire.
    So long Joannie...

  3. Patrick Luzzi

    So damn good and you can feel the maestro and composer too. . .

  4. KER JI

    Une legende absolue de la musique et des arts !

  5. David Hudson

    I have not heard a singer with the ability of Joan Baez.  Her voice is so beautiful and so great duplicating her is not going to be easy anytime soon.   Love this song.  I am also a folk music lover.  Joan does so many different styles and does them all so well that she is just not one that can be over looked to better an original song.  She is my favorite female singer.

  6. Arnaldo Bernardo

    ❤️🌹👏🏻😘

  7. kevin carroll

    That she possesses a talent for songwriting; I don't know. But Madame Dylan excels on that song. A+.

    Lorenzini Patrizia

    madame Dylan??? Mister Baez of course!

  8. chantal haton

    j'adore !!! qu'elle belle chanson et qu'elle belle voix !! merveilleuse Joan merci Bob Dylan

  9. Willie Quixote

    Joanie really did this justice.n Dylan wrote it ....but it needed this wistful melancholic sweet sadness. Bob was better writer tho..than singer for most part but he changes his tone so frequently..that's Dylan... what a jewel. I " kinda talk this" when I play .. works fo me

  10. daniel godwin

    Voice of a generation , I love Joan Baez 💖

  11. Michael Moran

    She has a great voice, no questions about that. The music is good too, but what is missing is the feeling. Dylan was a master of capturing the essence of emotions. It didn't need to be hi fi it just needed to be real. In my opinion Joan Baez misses that with Dylan.

    jdsol1938

    almost anyone sang dylons songs better than he did

    artsfols

    I don't think so. You can read the words on the page and there's feeling. Understated is better, but to each his own. Hey, you're right from your side, and I'm right from mine. Where did I hear that?

  12. Alain Margeride

    Forminable

  13. freewill1114

    If you don't love this, you have no soul.

  14. Asif Saifullah

    Down the street the dogs are barking
    And the day is a-gettin' dark
    As the night comes in a-falling
    The dogs will lose their bark

    And the silent night will shatter
    From the thoughts inside my mind
    And I'm one too many mornings
    And a thousand miles behind

    At the crossroads of my doorstep
    My eyes they start to fade
    And I turn my head back to the room
    Where my love and I have laid

    And I gaze back to the street
    The sidewalk and the sign
    And I'm one too many mornings
    And a thousand miles behind

    It's a restless hungry feeling
    That don't mean no one no good
    When everything I'm saying
    You can say it just as good

    You were right from your side
    But I was right from mine
    We're both just one too many mornings
    And a thousand miles behind

  15. Asif Saifullah

    Down the street the dogs are barkin'
    And the day is a-gettin' dark
    As the night comes in a-fallin'
    The dogs'll lose their bark
    An' the silent night will shatter
    From the sounds inside my mind
    Yes, I'm one too many mornings
    And a thousand miles behind

    From the crossroads of my doorstep
    My eyes they start to fade
    And I turn my head back to the room
    Where my love and I have laid
    An' I gaze back to the street
    The sidewalk and the sign
    And I'm one too many mornings
    An' a thousand miles behind

    It's a restless hungry feeling
    That don't mean no one no good
    When ev'rything I'm a-sayin'
    You can say it just as good
    You're right from your side
    I'm right from mine
    We're both just one too many mornings
    An' a thousand miles behind

  16. homesick clifford

    😯I love to hear Joan sing Dylan's songs, she makes beautiful music, no weird vocals just as a great vocalist that she is!!😯

  17. firebase delta

    this will always be my "go to " song when nights get too long ----

    Judy Thompson

    There are times when this song, either her version or Dylan's, are what I listen to over and over and over. It opens doors inside me.

  18. Stanley Moskowitz

    GREAT SOUND .

  19. Virginia Tomasian

    My lifetime idol since I began to sing at the early age of 14.

  20. Jo Lie-Nielsen

    Lovely performance and poesi.

  21. countrymusiclover

  28. Albert Ejiagwa

    what a golden voice and a wonderful-excellent singer!

  29. thetruthwillsetufree

    Every generation should listen to these songs to realize the genius of Dylan. Sad-Eyed Lady, being my favorite of all.

    19PsychoBates60

    +thetruthwillsetufree "Love is just a four Letter Word" is also one of his best songs. Unfortunately Dylan never recorded this one...

    Elliot Udell

    true genius

    Every generation will - He is immortal.

  30. 1Winoh

    someone else wrote some years ago "when Joan sings outdoors the birds stop singing to listen"   Yup, that sums it up!

    Brandon Young

    1Winoh little kids and infants too. They start imitating the singing. She is divine isn’t she?

    caseymcpoet

    The tiny hairs on my ears bow down in reverence....lads & lassies, to the Goddess of Song

  31. ysgol3

    My favourite Dylan cover of all. So simple yet so powerful.

    Susan E. Rutherford

    You got it!!

  32. trfesok

    Also recorded by the Association in '66 for their 2nd single, by the Beau Brummels the same year, and live on tour that year by Dylan himself in Dublin. All 3 and this one are in my Association playlist. Thanks for the upload!

  33. Alan Weberman

    a thousand miles behind is a big mf ass, hmmmm

    Steven Besst

    Man go the fuck away you scum bag loser douche worthless piece of dog shit!

    Alan Weberman

    @Steven Besst I am going to legally put you out of the electrical contracting business Steve. Watch.

  34. fanchbrezoneg

    I think the best version was recorded by Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash  (LP Heroes), a sad song written for Suze Rotolo

  35. jeff oliva

    There is a different version on this song by her that is 1000 x's better than this. It was an outtake from the Farewell Angelina album (I think). It is so much better, her voice has more passion, strength, and conviction in it. This version sounds so middle-of-the-road and sterile compared. But I can't find that version anywhere. It is worth looking for.

    jeff oliva

    @C. K. That's so awesome! Thank you for letting me know! 

    jeff oliva

    +C. K. And I noticed the other outtake The Water Is Wide put up too! One of the most beautiful/sad songs my ears have ever heard. Why those two songs didn't make it onto Farewell, Angelina I have no idea. Thanks again.

    JivinJane

    Did anyone find the version of One Too Many Mornings with Joan Baez on acoustic guitar?

    Pedro Michelutti

    you have the link of this other version of the music? i can´t find and want so much to listen

    Max Alberts

    She sang it once in concert in 1979 and I've been looking for it ever since.

  36. Walter Hall

    Still the best. I've often wondered why this widely covered song is so hard to get right. It's lovely in a reflective, somewhat mournful way. Baez gets that perfectly, letting the melody carry the mood but shaping it with her respect for the lyrical content. The song moves like a dance, but that can be a problem for the mood. I love other versions (the Johnny Cash/Waylon Jennings duet is gorgeous), but this one finds the perfect balance.

    三木圭祐

    I am so impressed by you and her , because it let me know Joan Baez still can touch people's heart even in 2014 .
    That's so amazing, isn't that?

    taddyd1

    @Walter Hall She got an even better groove on this song when she regularly performed it with a full band on her "Blowin Away" tour in the late 70s. Used to have a bootleg of the Chicago show and all those songs where way better live than on the lp.

    Wilson Rivera

    +Walter Hall Should check out Draco Rosa cover of the song, its completely different but its the best version imo

  37. jdsol1938

    Joan  Baez or Johnny Cash ,fortunately  you I can listen to both and don't need to decide

    sorry for bat english

    I prefer Chemical Brothers :P

    usergroupX

    @Adrian Moment Sirloin or filet minon, I can eat either and don't need to decide.  I prefer "spam" :P

  38. Brayan Steven Gualdron

    buena musica

  39. David Anthony Stone

    I heard Peter Paul and Mary sing it years ago but not record it ---------

  40. sabuj kumar chaudhuri

    Her voice is so romantic like a morning chirping bird. It proves once again that music knows no bar music has universal appeal . Thank you so much for uploading. Keep uploading her songs. 

  41. Piyush Mishra

    I am in love with this lady.....
    lovely,,,...nightingale voice
    thanks for uploading this song

  42. Patrick Patenotre

    quelle jolie voix

  43. John Steven

    Never heard this before, really like it.

  44. ysgol3

    My favourite Dylan cover, even better than Bob's version I think. I've seen Joan twice in concert in Cardiff in recent years, a church was just outside one of the venues, its bells rang between songs,Joan heard them then talked about the song 'The Bells of Rhymney' by Pete Seeger, then she sang it with no preparation at all. Just a wonderful moment.

  45. fanchbrezoneg

    Maybe for me the best is by The Band

  46. jdsol1938

    this version or johnny cash I can't decide which I s the best

  47. fanchbrezoneg

    A song for Suze Rotolo no for Joan.

    polito geo81

    But Suze Rotolo   -RIP-  was not a singer woman.. I love so much Joan's voice a personality.

  48. 1Winoh

    one of the best recordings she ever made and one of the few better than the master!

    freewill1114

    I give you 10 thumbs up!

  49. Khoa Nguyễn

    listen to John Hutchinson one last kiss and his other sngs

  50. jonasjar

    surprisingly bland, not one of her best moments.

  51. B.GEESTLES Cryst

    My thoughts're with the wind and the sound waves, traverse paths uncertain.

  52. gcm323

    Struggling through college met my lady fair. We were already committed to others, and this song just hit home as we remained faithful to our partners and our ideals.

  53. Leonardo Goulart

    this is not as close as anything to dylan's. a nice distraction and a beautifully interpreted but dylan means business. bottomline

  54. 5abimetalhead

    I happened to accidentally stumble upon Joan Baez I must say its been so long since an artist has stirred my soul

  55. Renato Flief

    by the tens of thousands of views to each and every one of her videos here, you can rest assured, you are not alone. :-)

  56. Dahni Uru

    Skyghost: I don't think Baez and Dylan ever married. She married a friend of mine, David Harris, in 1968. They divorced in 1973, I think, and she and Dylan had an affair for a couple of years while her fame helped get him recognized. They just always did the best they could.

  57. 1Winoh

    Better than dylan and that's impossible!

  58. Johnny

    thank god for youtube sometimes i think im the only joan baez fan out here

    Melissa Onorati

    Johnny Joan Baez voice is incredible, God bless her voice

    freewill1114

    I have been a Joan Baez fan since 1963. I have just about everything she did in my itunes library.

  59. Peter Cordwell

    The emotions - "a restless, hungry feeling" - are Dylan's, the song is Dylan's, other versions can only be a tribute. No one does Dylan like Dylan. Nobody.

    Will in New Haven

    And thank goodness. He would never have made any impression as a singer if he weren't a great songwriter.

  60. phlarrdboi

    @TheBlindPig1 gotcha!

  61. ruecow

    Better than Dylan.

    Linds Austin

    four strong winds be Dylan

  62. JohnnyBazooka

    She's great. But I don't like the way she sings Dylan songs.

  63. Don Zahrn

    i just love her voice. Just beautiful.

  64. Saskia Cornell

    Beautiful as always.

    Saskia

  65. clarkbailey1973

    @Scout4Me1 Joan covers Dylan better than anyone ever did or does...

  66. Jason g

    No one does Dylan like Baez....
    Here is a perfect example...

  67. nichibek

    This my favorite Dylan song, favorite cover of this song, and favorite Joan Baez song. Excellent lyrical imagery, and Joan captured the mood. .

  68. 8733hans

    @lenahjonsson ....everything I´m saying you can say it just as good....

  69. Lenah J

    Always "one too many.... mornings, days, kisses, tears .... behind"
    Guess I wasn't born in time...

  70. MrJeanFredman

    So nice!

  71. MCWhite

    This is my favorite cut from a brilliant cd.

  72. Mata Pöze

    Thank you very much!
    It is a real gift! I just love this song which accompanied me when my lover died some years ago!

  73. SteveonLI

    one of my favorites - i am sweetly and forever haunted by the fleeting and butterfly-like mandolin interludes

    thanks for posting
