Baby Stop Crying

Bob Dylan

 You been down to the bottom with a bad man babe,
Now you're back where you belong             
 Go get me my pistol babe,
 Honey I can't tell right from wrong             

Chorus ( x 2 )
Baby please stop cryin', stop cryin', stop cryin',
Baby please stop cryin'
   Stop cryin', stop cryin', Baby please stop cryin'
 You know, I know the sun will always shine  
But baby, please stop cryin' it's tearin' up my mind          

Go down to the river babe, honey I will meet you there
Go down to the river babe, honey I will pay your fare

If your looking for assistance,babe
Or if you just want some company
Or if you just want a friend you can talk to
Honey come and see about me

You been hurt so many times
And I know what you're dreamin' of
Well I don't have to be no doctor, babe
To see that you're madly in love

I have been playing this song for over 20 years and over that time this grizzling woman has got got less and less sympathy from me. 

So I wrote a rap to go over the adlib bit at the end.

" You know I've always found you attractive-
but this relationship has stopped being interactive -
I'm talking - you're sighing
I'm consoling - you're crying-

All this misery has started to get on my nerves -
So you were dumped maybe you got what you deserved -
Red eyes and snot don't make you look clever -
So Baby stop crying and pull yourself together.... "
Stop crying etc.
