BOB DYLAN- Ain't Talkin

BOB DYLAN- Ain't Talkin - Live 20 11 2006 New York City Center (video start 0.58)

As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden 
The wounded flowers were dangling from the vine 
I was passing by yon cool crystal fountain 
Someone hit me from behind 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Through this weary world of woe 
Heart burning, still yearning 
No one on earth would ever know 

They say prayer has the power to heal 
So pray for me, mother 
In the human heart an evil spirit can dwell 
I am trying to love my neighbor and do good unto others 
But oh, mother, things ain't going well 

Ain't talking, just walking 
I'll burn that bridge before you can cross 
Heart burning, still yearning 
There'll be no mercy for you once you've lost 

Now I'm all worn down by weeping 
My eyes are filled with tears, my lips are dry 
If I catch my opponents ever sleeping 
I'll just slaughter them where they lie 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Through the world mysterious and vague 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Walking through the cities of the plague. 

Well, the whole world is filled with speculation 
The whole wide world which people say is round 
They will tear your mind away from contemplation 
They will jump on your misfortune when you're down 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Eating hog eyed grease in a hog eyed town. 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Some day you'll be glad to have me around. 

They will crush you with wealth and power 
Every waking moment you could crack 
I'll make the most of one last extra hour 
I'll revenge my father's death then I'll step back 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Hand me down my walking cane. 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Got to get you out of my miserable brain. 

All my loyal and my much-loved companions 
They approve of me and share my code 
I practice a faith that's been long abandoned 
Ain't no altars on this long and lonesome road 

Ain't talking, just walking 
My mule is sick, my horse is blind. 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Thinking about that girl I left behind. 

Well, it's bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying 
Fame and honor never seem to fade 
The fire gone out but the light is never dying 
Who says I can't get heavenly aid? 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Carrying a dead man's shield 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Walking with an ache in my heel 

The suffering is unending 
Every nook and cranny has its tears 
I'm not playing, I'm not pretending 
I'm not nursing any superfluous fears 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Walking ever since the other night. 
Heart burning, still yearning 
Walking until I'm clean out of sight. 

As I walked out in the mystic garden 
On a hot summer day, a hot summer lawn 
Excuse me, ma'am, I beg your pardon 
There's no one here, the gardener is gone 

Ain't talking, just walking 
Up the road, around the bend. 
Heart burning, still yearning 
In the last outback at the world's end.
