Don't Think Twice, It's All Right Karaoke - Peter, Paul and Mary

The song title is sometimes written as "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" with the "All Right" being written as "Alright". The version by Peter, Paul and Mary has a rather long introduction - an entire stanza! - and I'm tempted every time to sing the first stanza on the intro.

Don't Think Twice It's All Right by Peter, Paul and Mary Song Lyrics

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter, anyhow
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' on
Don't think twice it's all right

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
Light I've never known
It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice it's all right

I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye is too good a word gal
So I'll just say "fair-thee-well"
I ain't saying you treated me unkind
You could have done better, but I don't mind
You just sorta wasted my precious time
But don't think twice it's all right

It ain't no use in callin' out my name gal
Like you never did before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name gal
I can't hear you anymore
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wonderin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice it's all right
