Marcus Mumford’s transplendent “Farewell”

From Another Day, Another Time-Inside The Music of Inside Llewyn Davis

LYRICS: BOB DYLAN

Oh it’s fare thee well my darlin’ true

I’m leavin’ in the first hour of the morn

I’m bound off for the bay of Mexico

Or maybe the coast of Californ

So it’s fare thee well my own true love

We’ll meet another day, another time

It ain’t the leavin’

That’s a-grievin’ me

But my true love who’s bound to stay behind

Oh the weather is against me and the wind blows hard

And the rain she’s a-turnin’ into hail

I still might strike it lucky on a highway goin’ west

Though I’m travelin’ on a path beaten trail

So it’s fare thee well my own true love

We’ll meet another day, another time

It ain’t the leavin’

That’s a-grievin’ me

But my true love who’s bound to stay behind

I will write you a letter from time to time

As I’m ramblin’ you can travel with me too

With my head, my heart and my hands, my love

I will send what I learn back home to you

So it’s fare thee well my own true love

We’ll meet another day, another time

It ain’t the leavin’

That’s a-grievin’ me

But my true love who’s bound to stay behind

I will tell you of the laughter and of troubles

Be them somebody else’s or my own

With my hands in my pockets and my coat collar high

I will travel unnoticed and unknown

So it’s fare thee well my own true love

We’ll meet another day, another time

It ain’t the leavin’

That’s a-grievin’ me

But my true love who’s bound to stay behind

I’ve heard tell of a town where I might as well be bound

It’s down around the old Mexican plains

They say that the people are all friendly there

And all they ask of you is your name

So it’s fare thee well my own true love

We’ll meet another day, another time

It ain’t the leavin’

That’s a-grievin’ me

But my true love who’s bound to stay behind
