What Good Am I ? Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

What good am I, if I'm like all the rest?
If I just turned away, when I see how you're dressed
If I shut myself off so I can't hear you cry
What good am I?

What good am I, if I know and don't do?
If I see and don't say, if I look right through you
If I turn a deaf ear to the thundering sky
What good am I?

What good am I, while you softly weep?
And I hear in my head what you say in your sleep
And I freeze in the moment like the rest who don't try
What good am I?

What good am I, then to others and me?
If I've had every chance and yet still fail to see
If my hands tied must I not wonder within
Who tied them and why and where must I have been

What good am I, if I say foolish things?
And I laugh in the face of what sorrow brings
And I just turn my back while you silently die
What good am I?
