This is how it is listed at Sorcha's link, but the first verse isn't quite right I think... I'll put how I recall it, in parentheses, in the text.

Didn't Arlo Guthrie record this ages ago? "I'm-a-walkin' down the-line.... I'm-a-walkin' down the lie-eye-eye-ine...

Sorch, you e-mail, OK?

=========================================================

WALKING DOWN THE LINE

CHO:
Well I'm walking down the line
I'm walking down the line
I'm walking down the line
My feet about my trouble mind
(Tell you' bout my troubled mind)

I've got a heavy headed gal
I've got a heavy headed gal
I've got a heavy headed gal
She ain't a feeling well
When she's better only time well tell

My money comes and goes
My money comes and goes
My money comes and goes
And rolls and flows and rolls and flows
Through the holes in the pockets of my clothes

I see the morning light
I see the morning light
I see the morning light
Well it's not because I'm an early riser
I didn't go to sleep last night

SH

RE: Arlo.........

I saw Arlo do this once and he did it as an audience sing with his very special and laconic line of patter to accompny it. Line by line he slowly teaches them this incredibly simple first verse.....it was hilarious.

I gotta' admit I stole it and added to it. I've done it a couple of times with great fun for all. At a state foster parent meeting, I had state officials up on stage acting out the words (for those who couldn't remember the words and needed visual aids) and looking like complete fools. It's too long to explain it all, but you can really have some fun with this and lighten up ANY group.

The last verse as I learned it is:

I got the walking blues
I got the walking blues
I got the walking blues
An' I ain't a going to lose
I believe I got the walking blues

Glen Campbell recorded a song something like this:

"Walking down the line feeling mighty fine, thinkin' 'bout my troubled mind...

Well I'm walking down the line
I'm walking down the line
I'm walking down the line
My feet ARE REALLY FLYIN'
(Tell you' bout my troubled mind)

I've got a heavy headed gal
I've got a heavy headed gal
I've got a heavy headed gal
She ain't a feeling well
When she's better only time'LL tell

My money comes and goes
My money comes and goes
My money comes and goes
And FLOWS AND ROLLS and rolls and flows
Through the holes in the pockets of my clothes

I see the morning light
I see the morning light
I see the morning light
Well it's not because I'm an early riser
I didn't go to sleep last night

Down the corner stood the man
Down the corner stood the man
Down the corner stood the man
Night stick in his hand
And he couldn't make me understand

I got the walking blues
I got the walking blues
I got the walking blues
An' I ain't a going to lose
I believe I got the walking blues

Rpt first stanza

That's the way I did it back in the day.

In the verse "See the mornin' light" Isn't it better to repeat that line just once and continue "An' it's not...etc " ?? It fits the meter better IMO ?

I think if one did that the stanza would be out of balance with the rest. However, folks do songs the way they want.

One thing: The "On the corner stood the man" is not a stanza from Dylan. I have no idea where I got it from.

This is on Dylan's Bootleg Tapes. I had always assumed that it was a Dylan song. Am I wrong?

It was written by Dylan, for sure.

From Bob Dylan, Lyrics 1962-1985:

Refr./Chorus: Well,I'm walking down the line,
             I'm walking down the line,
             An' I'm walking down the line
             My feet'll be a-flyin'
             To tell about my troubled mind

1:I got a heavy headed gal (x3)
She ain't a-feelin' well
When she's better only time will tell

2:My money comes and goes (x3)
And rolls and flows and rolls and flows
Through the holes in the pockets in my clothes

3:I see the morning light (x2)
Well, it's not because
I'm an early riser
I didn't go to sleep last night

4:I got my walking shoes (x3)
An' I ain't a-gonna lose
I believe I got the walking blues

Beachcomber, looks like you're right about that. My apologies. I'd heard the song once on a non-released version and my memory was wrong.
