Bob Dylan | Girl From The North Country

Bob Dylan | Girl From The North Country: "Girl From The North Country"
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."






While in class yesterday, my teacher played this song and I loved it. I don't know much about Bob Dylan, hence the fact I'm taking a class on his writing. But from all the songs I listened to yesterday, I can truly say that I already think he's good. His early recordings are hard to understand and his singing sometimes doesn't follow the typical structure I'm used to, but I definitely will continue listening to his songs.
