Subject: DT Corr: Pack Up Your Sorrows (Richard Fariña)
Here's my transcription of the recording by Richard and Mimi Fariña. Difference from the Digital Tradition are in italics.

PACK UP YOUR SORROWS (corrected)
(Richard Farina and Pauline Baez Marden)

No use crying, talking to a stranger
Naming the sorrow you've seen
Too many bad times, too many sad times
Nobody knows what you mean

CHORUS
But if somehow you could pack up your sorrows
And give them all to me
You would lose them, I know how to use them
Give them all to me

No use rambling, walking in the shadows
Trailing a wandering star
No one beside you, no one to hide you
And nobody knows what you are

No use gambling, running in the darkness
Looking for a spirit that's free
Too many long times, too many wrong times
And nobody knows what you see

No use roaming, going by the roadside
Seeking a satisfied mind
Too many highways, too many byways
And nobody's walking behind
