Townes Van Zandt - Don't Take It Too Bad
Well, don't you take it too bad
If you're feelin' unlovin'
Well, if you're feelin' unfeelin'
If you're feelin' alone
Don't you take it too bad
'Cause it ain't you to blame, babe
Well, it's only a game made
Out of all of this livin'
That we got left to do
And if you go searchin'
For rhyme or for reason
Then you won't have the time
That it takes just for talkin'
'Bout the places you've been, babe
'Bout the faces you've seen, babe
And how soft the time flies
Past your window at night
And we just can't have that, girl
'Cause it's a sad, lonesome, cold world
And a man needs a woman
To stand by his side
And whisper sweet words
In his ears about daydreams
And roses and playthings
And the sweetness of springtime
And the sound of the rain
