Ragged Dirty Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Lord I'm broke, I'm hungry, ragged and dirty too
Broke and hungry, ragged and dirty too
If I clean up sweet mama
Can I stay all night with you?

Lord, I went to my window, babe I couldn't see through my blinds
Went to my window, babe I couldn't see through my blinds
Heard my best friend coming around
I thought I heard my baby cry

Lord, if I can't come in here, baby then just let me sit down in your door
If I can't come in here baby then just let me sit down in your door
And I would leave so soon
That your man won't never know

How can I live here baby, Lord and feel at ease ?
How can I live here baby, Lord and feel at ease ?
Well, that woman I got, man
She do just what she feels

Lord you shouldn't mistreat me, baby because I'm young and wild
Shouldn't mistreat me, baby, because I'm young and wild
You must always remember
Baby, you was once a child

'Cause I'm leaving in the morning, if I have to ride the blind
Leaving in the morning, if I have to ride the blinds
Well, I've been mistreated
And I swear, I don't mind dyin'
