First thought this might be some Guthrie song and then remembered an old tune that goes "Woody knows nuthin' but hangin' on a bough, ahh, but the skies are blue. Mournin' for his own true love, as I my dear for you... as I my dear for you. Is this even remotely the direction you're going in?

Hi,

All I have to go on are the following lyrics....

I'm out here a thousand miles from my home,
walking the road where the ?wind had gone down
I'm tired and I'm weary, I'm racked and I'm worn,
It seems to be dying and it's hardly been born.

Thanks Catspaw,

Certainly looks similar, if you combine the verses.

Maybe Dylan stole it from some other song. Ane we at the Mudcat could be the first to find out the truth!

Honest to God Roger, I am SURE Dylan took the tune, but for the life of me, I can never hit exactly what it is...it's damn close to something of Woody's, also stolen I'm sure, but what I can't recall. One day I'll hear it again I know. Obviously some of the lyric is "Pastures of Plenty".......but damn!!!!!!! I KNOW that tune.

STOLE...Seems such a harsh term, doesn't it? Perhaps "borrowed with intent to reorganize" might be a better term...;)

From: GUEST,Dave Tratt
Date: 18 Feb 04 - 11:59 PM

I'm out here a thousand miles from my home,
Walkin' a road other men have gone down.
I'm seein' your world of people and things,
Your paupers and peasants and princes and kings.

Hey, hey Woody Guthrie, I wrote you a song
'Bout a funny ol' world that's a-comin' along.
Seems sick an' it's hungry, it's tired an' it's torn,
It looks like it's a-dyin' an' it's hardly been born.

Hey, Woody Guthrie, but I know that you know
All the things that I'm a-sayin' an' a-many times more.
I'm a-singin' you the song, but I can't sing enough,
'Cause there's not many men that done the things that you've done.

Here's to Cisco an' Sonny an' Leadbelly too,
An' to all the good people that traveled with you.
Here's to the hearts and the hands of the men
That come with the dust and are gone with the wind.

I'm a-leaving' tomorrow, but I could leave today,
Somewhere down the road someday.
The very last thing that I'd want to do
Is to say I've been hittin' some hard travelin' too.

Bob wrote it in February 1961, based on the Guthrie tune "1913 Massacre" - itself a traditional tune - according to Dylan biographer Robert Shelton.

According to the sleeve notes, he visited the (ailing) Guthrie around this time, and wrote it as a tribute.

Hi all,

You could also try these two sites, one of them at least has all
Dylan's songs with chords in zip format.

Have fun.
