Bob Dylan Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance

According to the official Bob Dylan site this song was written by H. Thomas and Bob Dylan – which is interesting, because as we have noted, a lot of Bob’s songs take elements of other people’s work and re-imagines the song without crediting the original.

But in this case I suspect that if you heard the original you wouldn’t link it to Dylan’s song, at least not until you hear the phrase “Honey just allow me one more chance.”

The earliest use of the song goes right back to Harry Thomas in 1927 (or Henry “Ragtime Texas” Thomas as I have seen him referred to).   Fortunately we still have that recording available, but first here is an early version of Bob’s song.

LYRICS
 
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
’Low me just-a one more chanceHoney, 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 one kind favor I ask you
’Low me just-a one more chanceHoney, 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
’Low me just-a one more chance
