Dont think twice

Bob Dylan

 GDEm
 It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
 CGD
 It don't matter anyhow   
 GDEm
 And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
 A7DD7
 If you don't know by now.  
 GG7
 When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
 CA7
 Look out your window and I'll be gone
 GDEmC
 You're the reason I'm travellin' on
 GDGD
 Don't think twice, it's alright.   

It ain't no use in turnin' on you light, babe
A light I never knowed
It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there were something 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 alright.

I'm walkin' down that long lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
Goodbye is too good a word, gal
So I'll just say, fare thee well.
I'm not 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 alright.

It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
Like you never done before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
I can't hear you anymore
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wonderin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I am told
I'd give her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don't think twice, it's alright.

>DON'T THINK TWICE, IT'S ALRIGHT by Bob Dylan

Uhh, I don't know how much of a purist you are, but those lyrics are sort
of a combination of Peter, Paul and Mary's version and Dylan's. Here's the
lyrics I have for Dylan's, straight off "The Freewheelin'"

 -
 Well it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, baby
If'n you don't know by now
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It'll never do somehow
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn,
look out your window and I'll be gone
you're the reason I'm a travelling on
But don't think twice, it's all right
And it ain't no use in turning on your light babe
the light I never knowed
and it ain't no use in turning on your light babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Well I wish there was something you would do or say
to try and make me change my mind and stay
we never did too much talking anyway
But don't think twice, it's all right
So it ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
like you never done before
and it ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
I can't hear you any more
I'm a thinkin' and a wonderin', walkin' down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I am told
I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right
So long honey babe
where I'm bound, I can't tell
goodbye is too good a word babe
so I'll just say fare the well
I ain't a sayin' you treated me unkind
you coulda done better but, I don't mind
you just kinda wasted my precious time
Don't think twice, it's all right

VERSE 3:
So lo-ong honey babe

Goodbye is too good a word babe.

You just kind of wasted my precious time
but don't think twice, it's alright.

Thanks to the original poster.

Peace,
