well it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe/even if you don't know by now/an' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe/it don't matter anyhow/ babe/when your rooster crows at the break of dawn/look out your window and I'll be gone/you're the reason I'm trav'lin' on/but don't think twice, it's all right/an' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe/that light i never knowed/an' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe/i'm on the dark side of the road/still wish there was somethin' you would do or say/to try and make me change my mind and stay/we never did too much talkin' anyway/so don't think twice, it's all right/it ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal/like you never did before/it ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal/i can't hear you anymore/i'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road/i once loved a woman, a child i'm told/i give her my heart but she wanted my soul/but don't think twice, it's all right/i'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe/where I'm bound, i can't tell/but goodbye's too good a word, gal/so i'll just say fare thee well/ iain't sayin' you treated me unkind/you could have done better but i don't mind/you just kinda wasted my precious time/but don't think twice, it's all right

dylan 1975

 can hear the turning of the key/i’ve been deceived by the clown inside of me/ i thought that he was righteous but he’s vain/ oh, something’s a-telling me/ i wear the ball and chain/ my patron saint is a-fighting with a ghost/ he’s always off somewhere when I need him most/ the spanish moon is rising on the hill/ but my heart is a-tellin’ me/ i love ya still/ i come back to the town from the flaming moon/ i see you in the streets, i begin to swoon/ i love to see you dress before the mirror/ won’t you let me in your room one time ’fore I finally disappear? everybody’s wearing a disguise/ to hide what they’ve got left behind their eyes/ but me, i can’t cover what I am/ wherever the children go, i’ll follow them/ i march in the parade of liberty/ but as long as i love you i’m not free/ how long must i suffer such abuse/ won’t you let me see you smile one time before I turn you loose?/ i’ve given up the game, i’ve got to leave/ the pot of gold is only make-believe/ the treasure can’t be found by men who search/ whose gods are dead and whose queens are in the church/ we sat in an empty theater and we kissed I asked ya please to cross me off-a your list/ my head tells me it’s time to make a change/ but my heart is telling me I love ya but you’re strange/ one more time at midnight, near the wall/ take off your heavy makeup and your shawl/ won’t you descend from the throne, from where you sit?/ let me feel your love one more time before I abandon it ...

bailes bros 1943/better than louvin brothers?

.... .... .... .... ..... ..... .... the year i was born, the bailes brothers would record THAT .... very close to the sound the everly bros would try to reach fifteen years after ..(their version was recorded in 1958).

charlie louvin sings about his high voiced dead brother, ira

" invraisemblable ou pas, crois-moi, c'est la vérité -et il n'y en a pas deux ..."
