Anybody know where I can get the lyrics for the Bob Dylan song "The Girl from the North Country". Used to know it, but forgot some of the words.

Hey there, Oldfolkie. Great song. Reminds me that "Nashville Skyline" is probably my favorite Dylan album. There are web-sites with most or all Bob Dylan lyrics. Spaw has found a good one. I lifted these off www.bobdylan.com

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Looking over these lyrics, I'm not sure it's the same as on "Nashville Skyline." It's probably been done in a variety of ways. But I would heartily recommend getting a copy of "Nashville Skyline," if only to hear the cool duet Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash do on this song. Enjoy! Bluejay

Sorry, the HTML didn't seem to paste with the words. But if you know the song, you'll have no trouble figuring the line breaks. BlueJay

The song was originally done on "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" in 1963.

Joe Cocker & Leon Russell do a nice duet as well on Mad Dogs & Englishmen.

My thanks to you all. Just what I was looking for. Now all I need to do is figure out the damn chords. Seems to me there was an interesting 3 or 4 bar minor chord progression between the verses? Is my memory at fault again?

Oldfolkie — a great old tune that I did for years, but it's been a long time since I've done it. I don't have a guitar with me, but I was trying to remember the chord pattern I used (which as I recall I got from a Dylan songbook). I won't guarantee this is it, but it might be helpful in figuring out your own thing with it.

(G - C - G) If you're (Em) travelin' in the (C) north country (G) fair (C - G)
(G) Where the (Em) winds hit heavy on the (C) border (G) line (C - G)
(G) Remember (Em) me to the (C) one who lives (G) there (C - G)
(G) For she once (Em) was a (D) true love of (G)mine (C - Am - D9 - G)

hope that works for you,

david

I use a straight pass from G to Am to a Bm (Am slide up) to D to G on the verse. Sounds good to me. And of course, i sing it JUST like Johnny Cash used to sing it.... :>)

Toy around with it and it'll come back to you.

Isn't this secretly the tune to Boots of Spanish Leather?

Mrrzy — you're right, the tunes are very similar and the chords almost identical.

Oldfolkie — I lied about the chords at the end; there's no Am in there. It's just C - D9 (w/E string open) - D9 (w/E string, second fret) - G. Makes a nice little run up.
