Marchin' To The City (Unreleased 2)

This song is by Bob Dylan and appears on the compilation album Tell Tale Signs (2008).

Loneliness got a mind of its own
More people around, more you feel alone
I've been chained to the earth like a silent slave
I'm trying to break free out of death's dark cave.

Once I had a pretty girl, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city, boys and the road ain't long.

I was hoping to my soul that we'd never part
You took all the madness right out of my heart
I was hoping we could drink from life's clear streams
I was hoping we could dream from life's pleasant dreams.

Once I had a pretty girl, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city, boys and the road ain't long.

My house is burning up to the sky
I thought it would rain but the clouds passed by
Sorrow and pity rule the earth and the skies
I'm not looking for nothing in anyone's eyes.

Once I had a pretty girl, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city, boys and the road ain't long.

Wind is blowing, all troubles and dirt
It's time to get away or someone gets hurt
I just don't know what I'm a-gonna do
I was all right 'til I fell in love with you.

Once I had a pretty girl, she did me wrong
Now I'm marching to the city, boys and the road ain't long.
