Bob Dylan - Blood In My Eyes Lyrics



Woke up this morning, feeling blue
Seen a good looking girl, can I make love with you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

I went back home, put on my tie
Gonna get that girl that money will buy
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

She looked at me, begin to smile
Said, "Hey, hey, man, can't you wait a little while ?"
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

No, no, ma'am, I can't wait
You got my money, now you're trying to break this date
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

I'll tell you something, tell you the facts
You don't want to give my money back
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

  17. Paul Jacobson

    An absolute Dylan classic. Hidden gem.

  18. Power Built

    Don't know what blood in my eyes means. Surely you'd go to a doctor if you had Petechial hemorrhages in your eyes?

  19. james vincent

    The tortured soul, the celebrity curse, the non-rock star, star. The heavy load, the absurdity of it all. The sadness of loving. J.

  20. Allen Michau

    Bob Dylan is simply one of the greatest to ever strap on a guitar and sing his poems for us common folk!He is a magician with his words and architectural genuis with the melodies💜Love ya Mr.Dylan!

  21. Lee Wohlfert

    Sometimes when an artist has been acclaimed as a genius, the starts to think anything he writes thereafter mmust be great? Tht's when they start giving out cliche-ridden mediocre work like this nothibg song.

    Jared Bailey

    This is a cover.

    Allen Michau

    I call bull

    Allen Michau

    This song is a masterpiece just like Dylan himself💜

  22. Lee Wohlfert

    Is having Blood in the Eyes for someone a good thing?? Cant figure this one out.

  23. British Scorpion

    LEGEND doesn't cut it, he's a GENIUS.

  24. PDN11141

    I woke up this morning with the blues. Luckily I'm not alone, cos' other people get the blues too. If I only knew why they arrived,
    I'd be better equipped to change my mood....

  25. Cliff Works

    who's on acoustic guitar? always credit all musicians please

  26. Adriana SF

    It's incredible how the Bob's voice changed over the years.

  27. Nathan Davis

    Wish this man had more recognition from the younger generation i've only listened to dylan for a few months now and everytime i hear him i get this strange feeling i can't explain but it's sad to think people would probably laugh at me for my taste so fuck them this is some powerful music

    Terry Fielding

    If they won't listen they will never hear. That is part of what is written into his craft.

  28. παναγιωτα δουρου

    what does blood in my eyes mean?

    cstar4004

    He’s seeing red, seeing through rose coloured glasses, blinded by love, and lust, “I dont care what in the world you do.” Its about falling in love with a prostitute, ”you got my money, now youre trying to break this date,” “if you dont want me, give me my money back” and “gonna get that girl that money will buy”

  29. Jack Rollins

    The original vagabong

  30. Torgo1969

    BD had a great run in the early 1990s with those 2 solo acoustic albums. I still listen to them in 2019.

  31. Jon Malaxetxebarria

    It´s always a huge, huge pleasure to listen to this Great Musician. Bob Dylan, whether alone or in a group (TRAVELING WILBURYS) is an absolute guarantee of first- class music. May he live for a long, long time.

  32. Otto Greenleaf

    Never saw this video before but I bet business improved when word got out Dylan was strolling around. Good song. Cheers!

  33. R J

    I'm crying. Thinkn bout a woman.

  34. Hussain Tanvir

    woke up this morning, feeling blue
    Seen a good-looking girl, can I make love with you?
    Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    I got blood in my eyes for you, babe
    I don't care what in the world you do

    [Verse 2]
    I went back home, put on my tie
    Going to get that girl that money that money will buy
    Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    I got blood in my eyes for you, babe
    I don't care what in the world you do

    [Verse 3]
    She looked at me, begin to smile
    Said, "Hey, hey, man, can't you wait a little while?"
    No, no, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    No, no, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    Got blood in my eyes for you, babe

    Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
    I got blood in my eyes for you, babe
    I don't care what in the world you do

  35. Tom Dale

    it when by way too fast, this thing called life

  36. Go F Urself

    He can even make an old unknown blues song sheer poetry. I love him beyond !

  37. Dixie Flatline

    Is there a Dylan/Tom Waits collaboration out there? If there isn't, there should be. They both have that "downtown troubadour" sound.

  38. Tony Off

    I love this song, love this sound, love this film and love this guy...

  39. Abirdthatflew

    A master class in the blues.

  40. Alison C Walsh

    I like this song but haven't a clue what his singing about. Can anyone enlighten me?

  41. The Bondage Queen

    The guy who I rented an apartment from near the beach in Mexico went totally blind right about 6 weeks before I arrived. The blood just rushed up into his eyes and he couldn't see anymore mysteriously. He was from Quebec- a frenchie who spoke Spanish and English in addition, who had moved there a decade before. He was married to a Mexican woman who already had 4 kids, and then had his first child with her who was a cute blonde haired, blue eyed little boy. She was very, very pregnant when I was there and due any day with his second child. One of the boys from her previous relationships was taunting the old man and obviously had little respect for him. The old man was a weed smoker, but the only thing he could get was your typical Mexican brown weed with a bunch of seeds and stems. It may have been cheap but you had to smoke a lot to get high. Subsequently after smoking joints all day long while lounging in a hammock- the old man had a terrible cough. And the boy emulated the cough, making fun of the old man for about a day and a half and all of a sudden all the kids disappeared. He said they went to their grandmother's house in anticipation of the birth and to make housework easier on the expectant mother.


    I felt kinda sorry for the old man who was being harassed by the children of his wife- I'm not even sure I knew he was being made fun of though- until she also left to take the kids to grandma's. As soon as she was gone he wanted a ride into the next town, and couldn't drive there himself because he was blind. I didn't have any experience driving in Mexico and was totally freaked out. From what I had seen it seemed crazy and without reason. But there I was with the blind old man in his van going to Sayulita and the first thing I had to do was take a left down the wrong side of the street- with cars coming head on- because they had put in this crazy median in the middle of the highway in town for the tourists with planted palm trees and cut grass. I had never been to Sayulita and he said he was just going to a bar and to meet him back there in a couple hours. I walked around the tourist town, glad I didn't stay there for a month instead. Then I found him in the cantina, a serious old-time cantina with a dirt floor wooden tables hewn from real timber and blanket for a front door- he had a pretty middle aged Mexican woman sitting next to him. He paid for her beers and he paid for her company at the table. There wasn't really nothing going on, but then there was everything going on. His wife had been gone for less than 12 hours and he felt like he was that lonesome already. I'm sure the nice lady at the table wouldn't have minded to make money money from the old man in whatever way she could.


    The apartment I rented at his place had a bedroom and bathroom indoors and then an open kitchen which was right above his living space, so I could see and hear almost anything that went on. At one point he flagged down a girl he knew that was passing by and got her mother to come over, and though I'm unsure of what all was said because my Spanish isn't great, at the end of it the woman ended up scolding him, waving him off and leaving abruptly. She had more respect for his wife than to do anything that he might have been wanting. It was a small town that he lived in and his wife was well thought of and smarter than the average woman it seemed to me. She was engaged with conversations with him about all kinds of topics, they really seemed to be friends and on equal terms of intellect, and he even listened to her when it came to their finances. So that is why he had to leave to go to other towns to find female company. He ended up driving around by himself after that visit to the cantina in Sayulita- he said he could just make out shadows and shapes, and drove around town on a four wheeler- with his little boy on it too.


    They ran all kinds of tests on his eyes and the doctor there even took care of his cataracts while trying to treat the blindness, but to no avail. No one knew why he went blind. Why the blood all rushed into his eyes. But I really suspect it was someone trying to poison him, especially after seeing his attempts at infidelity while his wife was gone. I saw on his profile page on Airbnb that his had the newborn son sitting on his lap, and that son is just as brown skinned and haired as an Mexican- unlike the first. So I don't really know who was cheating on who in the end. But maybe its a good thing the old man is blind.

  42. The Bondage Queen

    I was innocent when I was locked down in here, but that doesn't mean that my hands won't become bloody by the time I get out! If this was really prison I would have had a big "FUCK YOU" across my forehead a long, long time ago, but its hard to find a tattoo artist in solitary confinement.

  43. The Bondage Queen

    When a guy who dies of skin cancer that he should have seen a doctor for tells you, "Don't worry about a thing," perhaps it is a sign from God itself that you should- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaGUr6wzyT8 But that is just another parallel track in the Gospel of Bob. I always think there are lots of signs God gives to us, but we ignore them. When everyone is aboard the train and you happen to be at the driver's seat, its not such a good thing. But if you want to just be a passenger and find out where God is taking all these people whom it lies to, blames, corrupts and throws down the toilet every single day you can be my guest. There is plenty of room in the cattle cars...

  44. The Bondage Queen

    My mother was the daughter of a secretary. She hated to cook. She always worked. I remember once when my brother and I were kids that she had to stay home and do all the housework and raise us kids like a normal mom. She went crazy. She hated it. One of my first memories of her was telling us that she was going to leave us. The family. Run away. Never come back. Before I can even remember I apparently packed her suitcase full of all the underwear from her underwear drawer and told her to just leave if she wanted to that badly. She always worked. She was never home. My brother and I were left to fend for ourselves most of the time, even as small children my dad who was supposed to be watching us would be at work in his garage or watching TV- and we just did whatever. We learned how to cook for ourselves in self defense. And now that she is retired she doesn't know what to do with herself.

    There is a local chapter for NAMI- the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill- here in Wenatchee, and years ago both her and my dad took courses on how to cope with my mental issues. I really feel like it is God talking to me and torturing me and that it also creates all and speaks to you as well (though you have no consciousness of it)- so I've been resistant to going to group therapy and becoming a counselor to other mentally ill- especially experiencing a crisis. But I did get roped into becoming the NAMI Chapter's librarian for a number of years as well as giving training lessons yearly to police officers on what mental illness is like and my story as part of their CIT (Crisis Intervention Training). And now that my mom is retired she's taken on even more of a leadership role in the NAMI organization, and wants to take more training courses through them in Seattle now so she can council the mentally ill and do talk therapy. She's never really listened to me or taken me seriously and what I believe and perceive, but supposedly she is out there doing all this good for the mentally ill and removing stigmas about it in the world. I don't really see it as benefiting me- a supposedly mentally ill person. It just gives her something to do with her time that she feels good about. It was about her being better mentally and her quality of life improving, not mine. But wouldn't that just be something to find out what she always thought was just a mental illness was actually God talking to me and personally torturing me like I told her it was this entire time? And she never listened.

    When I would go into Family Planning for birth control- where my Mom was a clinic manager for years before it became Planned Parenthood and they made her retire- they would always ask me all kinds of questions about my sexual activities- and of course I never had any since I met God besides Big Dick Adam- but when we would get to the part about feeling safe and if I'd been a victim of sexual assault lately things always got weird. I would tell them about God raping me, but they never offered any sort of help or treatment. They didn't really take it seriously it seems. It was my problem. Alone.

    Aurora likes this she said in one of her interviews and also has lyrics that say blood in my eyes it could be a clue.🤔

  52. sG IRuSIH

    This song just speaks to me I’ve always knew of Bob Dylan through my grandpa but never listened to him by myself with pops gone I have to go back through my memories to remember songs we’d listen to and this is one of them thank you Bob Dylan and thank you pops (crazy my grandpas name was Bob aswell) :’)

  53. Total Property Repair

    Ive listened to Zimmy for a lifetime from my youth to the autumn of my years , Ive met him once by accident and I was and still am amazed at how normal he is , and not tall ...then i come to wonder how someone so famous can pass through the nights and days without being seen ..... the press don't follow him , the media don't follow him .. yet over 5 million people can't be wrong

  54. Nikki Fisher

    There seems.
    To have arisen a exhausting collective of musicians worldwide of whom even the dead sing in heaven

  55. ronfowlermusic

    It's too bad that the biz insists you have to do a music video to promote your music. This video has nothing at all to do the with the song. Should have just set up a single camera in a dark motel room and showed Bob singing and playing the song alone.

  56. song&danceman

    i´m a grown man, who has to control himself, over & over, just not to cry when hearing to Bob. Not complaining, instead i feel great about that.

  57. Karmen Jazbec

    you can only cry, I understand, love u, BOB

  61. Lletai

    I do not like how he sings xdddddddd

  62. 4everfab

    Do those people who meet Dylan in the street realize their extraordinary happiness? There is a poor man in France who loves Dylan since 1963, O God it's been 57 years! , and who would dream of crossing this living legend once in his life ...

    Justin Voluck

    I used to live in Malibu and I would see Dylan out once in a while. I wasn’t a fan so I didn’t think much of it. I just started listening to his music and now I have greater appreciation for the small talk we had.

    The album title, World Gone Wrong is a song by the Mississippi Shieks, and Blood in My Eyes is the flip side

    Sorry, that comment was meant for Blood In My Eyes

  68. gerard haubert

    Anyone know, “blood in my eyes” , is that local slang ? Never heard the term until this song.

    2:26 is Dylans' 3rd secret wife, he divorced her after he found out she was sneaking out to expensive hotels and dinners while he was on tour, i guess she was lonely, " You got my money, you missed the date."

    Interesting thought...to meet Lucky on the street somewhere.  Would what YOU say, or ask him?  I'd shake his hand and say, "God has used you in so many ways to help me grow closer in the knowledge and understanding of His Son Yeshua.  Thanks, Bob.  Wanna go burn one?"  Also be cool to get him to take my picture.
