Heart Of Mine

Lyrics By: Bob Dylan
Music By: Bob Dylan

Heart of mine go back home
You [got no] reason to wander, no reason to roam
You let yourself down
[?]
Don't [be] let yourself down
Heart of mine

Heart of mine be still
Oh you play with fire but you'll get the bill
[Oh let] yourself down
Let yourself down where you're going
Don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine so restless and bold
Give you an inch and you'll take a mile
Oh let yourself go
Let yourself know where you're going
Oh don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine always [?] guile
Give you an inch and you'll take a mile
Oh [?]
Your say you know where you're going
You say you know [?] blind
Heart of mine

Played by Dylan with the Dead on 19 July 1987 but never by the Dead themselves.

Lyrics below from the rehearsals with the Dead (thanks to Matt Schofield). They're a pretty messed up version of the 'true' lyrics.

The full lyrics as recorded on Shot Of Love are:

Heart of mine be still
You can play with fire but you'll get the bill
Don't let her know
Don't let her know that you love her
Don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine go back home
You got no reason to wander, you got no reason to roam
Don't let her see
Don't let her see that you need her
Don't put yourself over the line
Heart of mine

Heart of mine go back where you been

Don't let her hear
Don't let her hear you want her
Don't let her know she's so fine
Heart of mine

Heart of mine you know that she'll never be true
She'll only give to others the love that she's gotten from you
Don't let her know
Don't let her know where you're going
Don't untie the ties that bind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine so malicious and so full of guile
Give you an inch and you'll take a mile
Don't let yourself fall
Don't let yourself stumble
If you can't do the time, don't do the crime
Heart of mine

Heart Of Mine
