      About "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar"

      Prayed in the ghetto with my face in the cement
      Heard the last moan of a boxer, seen the massacre of the innocent
      Felt around for the light switch, felt around for her face
      Been treated like a farm animal on a wild goose chase

      West of Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar
      I see the turning of the page
      Curtain rising on a new age
      See the groom still waiting at the altar

      Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery
      Mistake your shyness for aloofness, your shyness for snobbery
      Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me
      About the madness of becoming what one was never meant to be

      West of Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar
      I see the turning of the ptage
      Curtain rising on a new age
      See the groom still waiting at the altar

      Don't know what I can say about Claudette wouldn't come back to haunt me
      Finally had to give her up about the time she began to want me
      But I know God has mercy on them who are slandered and humiliated
      I'd a-done anything for that woman if she'd only make me feel obligated

      West of Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar
      I see the turning of the page
      Curtain rising on a new age
      See the groom still waiting at the altar

      Put your hand on my head, baby, do I have a temperature?
      I see people who are supposed to know better standing around like furniture
      There's a wall between you and what you want and you got to leap through it
      Tonight you got the power to take it, tomorrow you won't have the power to keep it

      West of Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar
      I see the turning of the page
      Curtain rising on a new age
      See the groom still waiting at the altar

      Cities on fire, phones out of order
      They're killing nuns and soldiers, there's fighting on the border
      What can I say about Claudette?
      Ain't seen her since January
      She could be respectfully married or running a whorehouse in Buenos Aires

      West of Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar
      I see the turning of the page
      Curtain rising on a new age
      See the groom still waiting at the altar
