Featured lyrics. Bob Dylan — Restless Farewell Lyrics. Oh all the money that in my whole life I did spend Be it mine right or wrongfully I let it slip gladly to my friends To tie up the time most forcefully But the bottles are done We've killed each one And the table's full and overflowed And the corner sign Says it's closing time So I'll bid farewell and be down the road. Oh ev'ry girl that ever I've touched I did not do it harmfully And ev'ry girl that even I've hurt I did not do it knowin'ly But to remain as friends we need the time And make demands and stay behind And since Restless Farewell feet are now fast And point away from the past I'll bid farewell and be down the line.

Here is how Dylan introduced Restless to a live audience not too long after the Sinatra performance:. I played at the Frank Sinatra Tribute show a few years back, and I played this next song.
Take a look at the final verse. Oh all the money that in my whole life I did spend, Be it mine right or wrongfully, I let it slip gladly past the hands of my friends To tie up the time most forcefully. But to remain as friends and make amends You need the time and stay behind. Oh a false clock tries to tick out my time To disgrace, distract, and bother me.
