About You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

"You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" is a song by Bob Dylan. Recorded in September 1974, it appeared on Dylan's album Blood on the Tracks, released in January 1975. The song was one of a few Dylan attempted to record with a full band (Eric Weissberg and Deliverance) at the album's initial September 1974 sessions in New York. Multiple versions were attempted, including a slow ballad arrangement, but ultimately Dylan opted - as he did with most of the tracks from these sessions - for a near-solo acoustic arrangement backed only by Deliverance bassist Tony Brown. The complete recording session of "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" was released in 2018 on the deluxe edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14: More Blood, More Tracks, with one outtake appearing on the 1-CD and 2-LP versions of that album. The Daily Telegraph described the song as "Dylan's most fully realised masterpiece, crammed with lyrical blood and thunder and piercing observations." According to the Telegraph, it is the album's "simplest, breeziest song – yet it remains heartbreaking in its almost carefree surrender to the inevitability of romantic pain."Dylan has not performed the song live since 1976. Miley Cyrus and Johnzo West covered the song for Amnesty International on Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, a charity compilation album released on January 24, 2012 featuring Bob Dylan covers. The album debuted in the U. S at number 11 on the Billboard 200, with 22,000 copies sold.

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow
I've 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 always has hit me from below
But 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 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 have been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud
But there's no way I can compare
All them 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 Honolul-a
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

Bob Dylan ( /ˈdɪlən/; born Robert Allen Zimmerman; May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, poet and artist. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan's six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" has been described as radically altering the parameters of popular music in … more »
