You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Sung by Brian Lesh with Phil Lesh & Friends.

I�ve seen love go by my door
It�s never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow
Been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin�s not right it�s wrong
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Dragon clouds so high above
I�ve only known careless love
It�s always hit me from below
This time around it�s more correct
Right on target, so direct
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Purple clover, Queen Anne�s Lace
Crimson hair across your face
You could make me cry if you don�t know
Can�t remember what I was thinkin� of
You might be spoilin� me too much, love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Flowers on the hillside, bloomin� crazy
Crickets talkin� back and forth in rhyme
Blue river runnin� slow and lazy
I could stay with you forever and never realize the time

Situations have ended sad
Relationships have all been bad
Mine�ve been like Verlaine�s and Rimbaud
But there�s no way I can compare
All those scenes to this affair
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

You're gonna make me wonder what I�m doin�
Stayin� far behind without you
You're gonna make me wonder what I�m sayin�
You're gonna make me give myself a good talkin� to

I�ll look for you in old Honolulu
San Francisco, Ashtabula
You're gonna have to leave me now, I know
But I�ll see you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
