Covenant Woman

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Jerry Garcia joined Bob Dylan on stage in November 1980 when Dylan sang this

Covenant woman got a contract with the Lord
Way up yonder, great will be her reward
Covenant woman, shining like a morning star
I know I can trust you to stay where you are

And I just got to tell you I do intend
To stay closer than any friend
I just got to thank you once again
For making your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful I will forever be

Iíve been broken, shattered like an empty cup
Iím just waiting on the Lord to rebuild and fill me up
And I know He will do it ícause Heís faithful and Heís true
He must have loved me so much to send me someone as fine as you

And I just got to tell you I do intend
To stay closer than any friend
I just got to thank you once again
For making your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful I will forever be

Covenant woman, intimate little girl
Who knows those most secret things of me that are hidden from the world
You know we are strangers in a land weíre passing through
Iíll always be right by your side, Iíve got a covenant too

And I just got to tell you I do intend
To stay closer than any friend
I just got to thank you once again
For making your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful I will forever be
