If You Gotta Go, Go Now

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2013 at a hoe-down with the Terrapin Family Band.

Listen to me, baby
Thereís something you must see
I want to be with you, girl
If you want to be with me

But if you gotta go
Itís all right
But if you gotta go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night

It ainít that Iím questioning you
To take part in any quiz
Itís just that I ainít got no watch
And you keep askiní me what time it is

But if you gotta go
Itís all right
But if you gotta go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night

I am just a poor boy, baby
Looking to connect
But I certainly donít want you thinking
That I ainít got any respect

But if you gotta go
Itís all right
But if you gotta go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night

You know Iíd have nightmares
And a guilty conscience, too
If I kept you from anything
That you really wanted to do

But if you gotta go
Itís all right
But if you gotta go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night

It ainít that Iím wanting
Anything you never gave before
Itís just that Iíll be sleeping soon
Itíll be too dark for you to find the door

But if you gotta go
Itís all right
But if you gotta go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night
