Looks Like Tomorrow is Comin' On Fast~Bob Dylan

Silvio
Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is coming on fast
Ain't complaining 'bout what I got
Seen better times, but who has not?

Silvio
Silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio
I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know

Honest as the next jade rolling that stone
When I come knocking don't throw me no bone
I'm an old boll weevil looking for a home
If you don't like it you can leave me alone

I can snap my fingers and require the rain
From a clear blue sky and turn it off again
I can stroke your body and relieve your pain
And charm the whistle off an evening train

I give what I got until I got no more
I take what I get until I even the score
You know I love you and furthermore
When it's time to go you got an open door

I can tell you fancy, I can tell you plain
You give something up for everything you gain
Since every pleasure's got an edge of pain
Pay for your ticket and don't complain

One of these days and it won't be long
Going down in the valley and sing my song
I will sing it loud and sing it strong
Let the echo decide if I was right or wrong

Silvio
Silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio
I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know

Tapping my toes... :)

Hey, did you send me an email? I've had a few from bloggers lately that were spam, so I'm hesitant to click on the link until I hear from you.

Betsy,I didn't send you an email lately. I'm glad you're tapping your toes. I played that song over and over in the car on the way to work today!

Wishing you A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY on May 5th - I will not ask your age, because it really does not matter except you are as young as you feel !
Just be careful of how much cake you eat :)
Big hugs,
Heron

ooooh - Happy Birthday for tomorrow Kim. I'm Taurus too - it was mine yesterday (chocolates all day, and only a tiny bit of work, then coffees with brandy later. And lots of profiteroles). Have a fabulous chocolate-laden, surprise-laden and booze-laden day! x
