299 – Bob Dylan – Honey, just allow me one more chance (1963)


Trata-se de uma canção gravada por Henry Thomas em 1928. No livro The formative Dylan: Transmission & Stylistic Influences, 1961-1963, Todd Harvey analisa como Dylan troucou os versos da versão de Thomas e adaptouu o refrao, utilizando a estrutura AAAC e as frases de 4-bar em um compasso 2/4. 
 
Harvey disse que o refrao de Thomas continuou constante por toda a canção na versao de Dylan. E que Dylan escreveu, na maior parte da canção, um novo texto numa frase de 4-bar com o quarto verso atuando como o refrao. 

Pra completar, Dylan aumentou o tempo e adicionou seu proprio violao como acompanhando e colocou solos de gaita, caracteristica dele, entre os versos.  

A letra:

Honey, just allow me one more chance
To get along with you
Honey, just allow me one more chance
Ah'll do anything with you
Well, I'm a-walkin' down the road
With my head in my hand
I'm lookin' for a woman
Needs a worried man
Just-a one kind favor I ask you
Allow me just-a one more chance.

Honey, just allow me one more chance
To ride your aeroplane
Honey, just allow me one more chance
To ride your passenger train
Well, I've been lookin' all over
For a gal like you
I can't find nobody
So you'll have to do
Just-a kind a favor I ask you
Allow me just-a one more chance.

Honey, just allow me one more chance
To get along with you
Honey, just allow me one more chance
Ah'll do anything with you
Well, lookin' for a woman
That ain't got no man
Is just lookin' for a needle
That is lost in the sand
Just-a one kind favor I ask you
Allow me just-a one more chance.
