I Need A Woman Lyrics

    (bob dylan)

    It's been raining in my mouth all day
    Dripping down to my clothes
    My patience it is wearing thin
    Got a fire inside my nose
    Searching for the truth the way god designed it
    The truth is i might drown before i find it

    Well, i need a woman
    Yes, i do
    Need a woman
    Yes, i do
    Someone who can see me as i am
    Give the kind of love that don't have to be condemned

    And i want you to be that woman
    Every night
    Be that woman
    Treat me right

    I've had my eyes on you, baby
    For about five long years
    You probably don't know me at all
    But i've seen your laughter and i've seen your tears
    Now you don't frighten me
    I ain't no defendant
    And you look like it wouldn't hurt you none
    To have a man of understanding

    Well, i need a woman
    Oh, don't i
    Need a woman
    Bring it home safe at last

    I've seen you standing on the corner
    Seen you sitting down in the park
    Been watching you in the sunshine
    Walking with you in the dark

    And i want you to be that woman
    Treat me right
    Be that woman
    Every night

    Well, if you believe in something long enough
    You just naturally come to think it's true
    There ain't no wall you can't crossover
    Ain't no fire you can't walk through
    Well, believing is all right
    Just don't let the wrong people know what it's all about
    They might put the evil eye on you
    Use their hidden powers to try to turn you out

    Well, i need a woman
    Just to be my queen
    Need a woman
    Black, white, yellow, brown, blue or green

    Riding out with me at midnight
    Like two spanish desperadoes
    Gazing down upon the futile world
    In her cadillac eldorado
    We will penetrate the storm
    In search of truth that has not been tested
    But she better bring along her checkbook
    Just in case we get arrested

    And i want you to be that woman
