She smiles, walks the other way/ As the last ship sails and the moon fades away/ From Black Diamond Bay

Up on the white veranda
She wears a necktie and a Panama hat.
Her passport shows a face
From another time and place
She looks nothin’ like that.
And all the remnants of her recent past
Are scattered in the wild wind.
She walks across the marble floor
Where a voice from the gambling room is callin’ her to come on in.
She smiles, walks the other way
As the last ship sails and the moon fades away
From Black Diamond Bay.

From “Black Diamond Bay”
Written by Bob Dylan and Jacques Levy
