Not Dark Yet

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Played by the David Nelson Band in 2015.

Shadows are falling and I�ve been here all day
It�s too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I�ve still got the scars that the sun didn�t heal
There�s not even room enough to be anywhere
It�s not dark yet, but it�s getting there

Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there�s been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don�t see why I should even care
It�s not dark yet, but it�s getting there

Well, I�ve been to London and I�ve been to gay Paree
I�ve followed the river and I got to the sea
I�ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain�t looking for nothing in anyone�s eyes
Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear
It�s not dark yet, but it�s getting there

I was born here and I�ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I�m moving, but I�m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can�t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don�t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It�s not dark yet, but it�s getting there
