Song Lyrics

Let It Be Me

by Joni Mitchell

Printer-friendly version of this lyric

Old Mister Wind - hear him howl
Even the moon seems to scowl
Even the skies seem to sympathize
As they weep into
their leafy cryin' towel

I didn't sleep last night
Room is gettin' light
That old sun I see
just arisin' here for me
Will be settin' someplace else
for you tonight

You're a rambler a rover
You've been this wild world over
All you ask of life is to be free
When those boots I've been lickin'
Feel a little more like stickin'
Please let it be here and let it be me

Maybe if the day you left this town
I'd acted more the lover less the clown
Maybe if I'd cried those tears I'd learn to hide
I'd be with you on that road you're fadin' down

You're a rambler a rover
You've been this wild world over
All you ask of life is to be free
When those boots I've been lickin'
Feel a little more like stickin'
Please let it be here and let it be me
Please let it be here and let it be me
