To Ramona

(„Another Side Of Bob Dylan”, 1964 Columbia)
słowa i muzyka: Bob Dylan
   C                                                                        G7

Ramona come closer shut softly your watery eyes.

          d7                   G7                  d7                 G7             C

The pangs of your sadness will pass as your senses will rise.

           F                                                                                           G7

The flowers of  the city though breathlike, get deathlike sometimes.

                d7            G7                   d7           G7  

But aint no use in tryin' to deal with the dyin'

                  d7             G7                C 

Though I cannot explain that in lines.

 

  

Your cracked country lips I still wish to kiss, as to be by the strength of your skin.

Your magnetic movements still capture the minutes I'm in.

But it grieves my heart love to see you trying to be a part of a world that just don't exsist.

It's all just a dream babe, a vacum a scheme babe.

That sucks you into feeling like this.

  

I can see that your head has been twisted and fed with worthless foam from the mouth.

I can tell you are torn between staying and returning on back to the south.

You've been fooled into thinking that the finishing end is at hand.

Yet there's no one to beat you, no one to defeat you.

‘Cept the thoughts of yourself feeling bad.

  

I've heard you say many times that your better than no one and no one is better than you.

If you really believe that you know you have nothing to win and nothing to lose.

From fixtures and forces and friends your sorrow does stem.

That hype you and type you makin' you feel

That you gotta be just like them.

  

I'd forever talk to you but soon my words would turn into a meaningless ring.

For deep in my heart I know theres no help I can bring.

Everything passes, everythingchanges, just do what you think you should do.

And someday maybe,  who knows baby.

I'll come and be crying to you.

Bob Dylan - To Ramona + Lyrics
To Ramona (Live 1964)- Elston Gunn

To Ramona - Sinéad Lohan
Lissie Covers Bob Dylan's "Ramona"

To Ramona” is a folk waltz written by Bob Dylan for his fourth studio album, Another Side of Bob Dylan. The song is one of the many on the album to highlight the more personal, and less political, side of Dylan's songwriting that would become evermore prominent in the future. The song also makes many allusions to Dylan's personal relationship with fellow folk singer Joan Baez, at the time of its composition and subsequent release. It is another example of the G, G6, G7 melodic motif Dylan uses pervasively on the record. A cover version of the song was recorded by The Flying Burrito Brothers on their 1971 self-titled album.
Irish singer Sinéad Lohan recorded a version of „To Ramona” in 1996. This was released on a compilation album, The Loving Time.
Philadelphia indie rock band Days Away covered „To Ramona” for Listen to Bob Dylan: A Tribute.
British songwriter David Gray released a live version of „To Ramona” on his live cover album A Thousand Miles Behind (2007).
U.S. band These United States released their cover version on french album Dylan mania published by Naïve (company) (2009)
In 1992 the Texas Tornados in their album Hangin' on by Thread made a beautiful version of „To Ramona” with lyrics partially translated and adapted into Spanish.
