A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son? Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I met a white man who walked a black dog I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met one man who was wounded in love I met another man who was wounded with hatred
This was based on an old folk ballad variously titled "Lord Randall" or "Lord Ronald," in which a mother repeatedly questions her son (beginning with "Where have you been?"), leading him to reveal he has been poisoned. The song ends when he falls dead to the ground.
