False Prophet - Bob Dylan 

Another day that won't end,
Another ship went out,
Another day of anger,
bitterness and doubt.
I know how it happened, 
I saw it begin, 
I opened my heart to the world,
And the world caved in. 

Hello Mary Lou,
hello Ms. Pearl,
my fleet footed godess,
from the underworld.
No stars of the sky, 
Shine brighter then you, 
You girls mean business,
And I do too. 

Well I'm the enemy of treason, 
the enemy of strife,
I'm the enemy of the un lived
meaningless life.
I ain't no False Prophet,
I just know what I know, 
I go where only, 
the lonely men go. 

I'm first amongst equals, 
Second to none,
The last of best,
You can bury the rest.
Bury 'em naked
With their silver and gold 
Put 'em six feet under
And I pray for their soul. 

What are you looking at, 
There's nothing to see,
Just a cool breeze,
That's encircling me. 
Let go for a walk in the garden, 
So far and so wide, 
We can sit in the shade, 
by the fountain side. 

I searched the world over, 
for the holy grail,
I sing songs of love, 
I sing songs of betrayal.
Don't care what I drink, 
I don't care what I eat, 
I climb the mountain of swords
On my bare feet. 

You don't know me darling,
you never would guess, 
I'm nothing like my ghostly appearance would suggest. 
I ain't no False Prophet, 
I just said what i said. 
I'm just here to bring vengeance 
On some bodies head. 

Put out your hand, 
there's nothing to hold. 
Open your mouth 
I'll stuff it with gold.
Aw you poor devil 
look up if you will. 
The city of God 
is there on the hill. 


Hello stranger 
a long good bye. 
You rule the land
but so do I. 
You lusty old mule, 
you got a poison brain, 
I'll marry you to 
a ball and chain. 

You know darling 
the kind of life I live. 
When your smile meets my smile, something's gotta give. 
I ain't no false prophet, 
no, I'm nobodies bride. 
I can't remember when I was born, 
and I forgot when I died.
