Dylan, Bob - Mary Ann Lyrics

Oh, fare thee well, my own true love, fare thee well but for a while
The ship is waiting and the wind blows high
And I am bound away for the sea, Mary Ann.

Ten thousand miles away from home, ten thousand miles or more
The sea may freeze and the earth may burn
If I never nomore return to you, Mary Ann.

Oh, don't you see that crow fly high, she'll surely turn to white
If never I prove false to you
Let the day turn to night, my dear, Mary Ann.

If I had a flask of gin and sugar here for two
And a great big bowl for two to mix it in
I'd pour a drink for you my dear, Mary Ann
Yes, I'd pour a drink for you my dear, Mary Ann.

  29. The Bondage Queen

    I'm just amazed you somehow worked "Persian drunkard" into a song seamlessly Bob. Skills.

  30. mortimer zilch

    George sang this at the 30th anniversary concert.

  31. GereDJ2

    I was an FM Rock DJ then and loved this immediately and played it often. KTBT-FM Garden Grove, CA "Underground 94" Free Form. Back in the day when Stereo FM was still fairly new, and the audio quality of FM was sooo far ahead of AM radio. It was a magic time.

    Vomit Pinata

    Many of the DJs were ahead of their time as well!

    Ronald Dump

    Who the hell would feel any inclination to comment on someone giving this a thumbs whatever ???

    Sir Barnaby St.John Toffington

    Ronald Dump
    ...well, perhaps even more than this...who the hell on Earth would feel inclined to comment in response to my original comment by asking who the hell would feel inclined to comment?
    .....or something.

    Olive Eisner

    That cool 1960's Farfisa organ sound. It's fantastic. I used to have a lime green and white one. He was really into Doug Sahm (Sir Douglas Quintet) at that time with that cheesy organ. So good.


    Al Kooper


    @Olive Eisner Cool to see Doug Sahm's name in a comment! I play guitar with a guy who played softball with Doug down in Texas in the 90s...Doug pitched, my buddy Dave (he's 71 years old now!) was the catcher...he had no idea who Doug was-but he DID remember the Sir Douglas Quintet...thanks for the memory!--
