Soon you'll be sippin' coffee, And settin' your cup,
On a table, That I've never seen.
You'll be walkin' on walks, And talkin' in talks,
With your new-found friend, Not me.
You'll be pickin' up pieces, Replacin' parts,
Puttin' fresh plaster in the holes in your heart,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me, Oh-oh,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me.

They'll throw a newspaper, Onto your front porch,
That I won't be there, To read.
You'll cook up somethin', And when it gets scorched,
You won't have to serve it to me.
You'll put soup for one, In your grocery cart,
Wallpaper over the cracks in your heart,
Drop stale bread to make a real fresh start,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me, Oh-oh,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me.

(Bridge)
:Wo-wo, So I never will darken your doorway at night,
Never will turn off, Your bedroom light.
We never will argue, we never will fight, you see--,
And you'll never have to smell my stinkin' shoes,
Never have to hear my depressing news.
You'll never have to sing these long-gone blues with me.
You'll be Walkin' Down The Road Without Me, Oh-oh,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me.

Wo-wo, So I never will darken your doorway at night,
Never will turn off, Your bedroom light.
We never will argue, we never will fight, you see--,
And you'll never have to kiss me on the mouth, I guess.
You'll never know the joy of our safe sex,
Or kiss me 'til I tremble like a nervous wreck, You'll be
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me, Oh-oh,
Walkin' Down The Road Without Me.

This line came to me at a Bob Dylan concert at the Palace Theater in Columbus, Ohio. "That's no ordinary line,' I thought. "That's an extraordinary iine."

Arlo Guthrie had told me (mind you, I was in the audience of that same theater a few months previous, and he was on the stage) that there's something called 'The Cosmic Flow' that runs a few inches above our heads. If you can get your head up into it, songs are swimming through the Cosmic Flow, like fishes, and you can catch them. He said sometimes the fishes are on their way to Bob and he catches them, so some of his songs sound like Dylan's. This one may have been on the way.

I sang it in my head a few times to memorize it, then, with a two-hour drive alone to get home, I began to write the lyric. When I got home I picked up a guitar and it fell together.
