Working on a Guru

It's raining outside
And I need an umbrella.
So does the guru.

This is just a two-man guitar workout between George Harrison and Bob Dylan, recorded during the "New Morning" sessions in, I guess, 1969 or 1970. The words don't mean a whole lot, but they're fun anyway. This song appeared in 2013 on volume 10 of the Bootleg Series.

Rain on the ground, windshield wipers movin', 
Water on the ground, sure don't feel like groovin'. 
Working on a guru, 
Working on a guru, 
Working on a guru, before the sun goes down. 

Rain all around, I need me an umbrella. 
Water on the ground, I am that kind of fella. 
Looking for a guru, 
Working on a guru, 
Working on a guru, before the sun goes down. 

Walking on the street, I need me an umbrella. 
Just to keep it sweet, I am that kind of fella. 
Looking for a guru, 
Working on a guru, 
Working on a guru, before the sun goes down. 

Rain on the ground, windshield wipers movin', 
Water all around, I sure don't feel like groovin'. 
I'm working on a guru, 
Yes, I'm working on a guru, 
But I'm working on a guru, before the sun goes down. 

Working on a guru, 
Working on a guru, 
Well, it's true, it could be you ... 
I'm working on a guru.
