Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?And where have you been, my darling young one?
Ive stumbled on the sideof twelve misty mountainsIve walked and Ivecrawled on six crookedhighwaysIve stepped in the middleof seven sad forestsIve been out in front of adozen dead oceansIve been ten thousandmiles in the mouth of agraveyard
And its a hard, its a hard, its a hard, its a hardAnd its a hard rains a-gonna fall.
Oh, who did youmeet my blue-eyed son ?Who did you meet, my darling young one ?
I met a young child beside a dead pony I met a white man who walked a black dog I met a young woman whose body was burning I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow I met one man who was wounded in loveI met another man who was wounded in hatred
Its a hard rains a-gonna And its a hard, fall.its a hard, its ahard, its a hard
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?And what did you see, my darling youngone?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all aroundit,I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin,I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin,I saw a white ladder all covered with water,I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were allbroken,I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of youngchildren
You that never done nothinBut build to destroyYou play with my worldLike its your little toyYou put a gun in my handAnd you hide from my eyesAnd you turn and run fartherWhen the fast bullets fly.
