You are a Big Girl Now

(„Blood On The Tracks”, 1975 Columbia)
słowa i muzyka: Bob Dylan
Our conversation was short and sweet

It nearly swept me off-a my feet.

And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh,

And you are on dry land.

You made it there somehow

You're a big girl now.


Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense.
And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh,
Singin' just for you.
I hope that you can hear,
Hear me singin' through these tears.


Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.
I can change, I swear, oh, oh,
See what you can do.
I can make it through,
You can make it too.


Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,
You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days.
Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh,
In somebody's room.
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.


A change in the weather is known to be extreme
But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?
I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh,
With a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.

You're a Big Girl Now” is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his 15th studio album Blood on the Tracks in 1975. The lyric „Love is so simple, to quote a phrase” refers to the title of The Dells song „Love is So Simple.” The title also makes reference to the soul song, „You're A Big Girl Now” by The Stylistics, released in 1971.
It is a kind of sequel to the song „Just Like a Woman” (1966), with the line „I'm back in the rain” echoing the earlier „Tonight as I stand inside the rain”., October 2008 
The song has been covered by Lloyd Cole, on his studio album „ETC”, by Jimmy Lafave, by Lisa Miller on her 1996 album „Quiet Girl With a Credit Card”, and by Zita Swoon on their 2006 album „Camera Concert - A Band In A Box”.
