Subject: ADD Version: Pack Up Your Sorrows (Richard Fariña)
Here's the Peter Paul and Mary version, which is only slightly different:

PACK UP YOUR SORROWS
Farina/Marden- Ryerson Music Pub., Inc. BMI

Refrain:
Well, 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.

(Refrain)

No use cryin', talking to a stranger,
Namin' the sorrows you've seen;
Oh, 'cause there are too many bad times,
Too many sad times,
Nobody knows what you mean.

{Refrain}

No use ramblin' walkin' in the shadows,
Trailin' a wanderin' star.
No one beside you, no one to hide you,
An' nobody knows where you are.

{Refrain}

No use roamin', walking by the roadside,
Seekin' a satisfied mind.
Ah, 'cause there are too many highways,
Too many byways,
Nobody's walkin' behind.

{Refrain}

You would lose them, I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.
