      About "Ruben Remus"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan & The Band - "Ruben Remus"

      Wrote a letter this mornin',
      Put it in your hat,
      'Cause no one to read it
      And I know you knew that.
      I bought a joke, a trick or two,
      Just to bring and show you,
      Caught ya with the trickster too.
      Sometimes I wonder how ya knew
      A hypnotist, fancy talker,
      Ruben Remus ain't no doctor

      I knew the man and tried to remember
      Just where it was that I'd seen his face.
      Long ago, in a movie show,
      He was like that man singin' bass.
      Knew him by his nurs'ry rhyme:
      The 'Story Of The Rabbit Man'.
      Fell right in and said to him:
      "I'd like to help you if I can."
      I know the film would only shock ya,
      Ruben Remus ain't no doctor!

      He only needed what you had,
      Asked for nothing more,
      Said he'd like to take you on,
      But it's been done before.
      You couldn't see he's a travelin' man
      And he cannot take your hand.
      It's very hard to understand
      Why his songs were never banned.
      Guess the man would never knock ya,
      Ruben Remus ain't no doctor!

      No one seen ya since he's been gone,
      It's been a day, maybe more.
      I took a walk in your yard
      And knocked on your back door.
      Why don't you let me in?
      I'm not the man who did ya in.
      Is Mr. Remus still your friend?
      You say you don't remember him.
      Turn me down, would ya?
      Well, I've got news for you.
      Turn me down would ya,
      Can't ya tell
      I'm gonna change your mind before I'm...trough...
