When The Deal Goes Down
Bob Dylan

In the still of the night, in the world's ancient light
Where wisdom grows up in strife
My bewildering brain, toils in vain
Through the darkness on the pathways of life
Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air
Tomorrow keeps turning around
We live and we die, we know not why
But I'll be with you when the deal goes down

We eat and we drink, we feel and we think
Far down the street we stray
I laugh and I cry and I'm haunted by
Things I never meant nor wished to say
The midnight rain follows the train
We all wear the same thorny crown
Soul to soul, our shadows roll
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Well, the moon gives light and it shines by night
When I scarcely feel the glow
We learn to live and then we forgive
O'r the road we're bound to go
More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours
That keep us so tightly bound
You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Well, I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes
I followed the winding stream
I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys
I know they're not what they seem
In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain
You'll never see me frown
I owe my heart to you, and that's sayin' it true
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Man did I have trouble getting to this page. Popup blockers do strange things with comment links on blogs...

Just wanted to point out that your link to Cedar Springs church is dead, as in, it links to one of these generic domain name renting sites.

Of the 3 songs (ok ok this is off-topic a little) you have available for free download on CNET I found Your Song is on my Tongue to be the best. Thought you might like to know.

That's kinda on topic, if the topic is music =). I'm glad you like that song, I love playing it. Dad has a CD of songs I sent him that I sent to him a few months ago. It's mostly stuff I wrote... you can ask him for a copy! It's got a rerecorded version of Your Song Is On My Tongue (just cleaned up the vocals).
