You're A Big Girl Now

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Sung by Ross James with Phil Lesh & Friends.

Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly swept me off-a my feet
And I�m back in the rain, oh, oh
And you are on dry land
You made it there somehow
You�re a big girl now

Bird on the horizon, sittin� on a fence
He�s singin� his song for me at his own expense
And I�m just like that bird, oh, oh
Singin� just for you
I hope that you can hear
Hear me singin� through these tears

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame if all we�ve shared can�t last
I can change, I swear, oh, oh
See what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You�ve known it all the time, I�m learnin� it these days
Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh
In somebody�s room
It�s a price I have to pay
You�re a big girl all the way

A change in the weather is known to be extreme
But what�s the sense of changing horses in midstream
I�m going out of my mind, oh, oh
With a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we�ve been apart
