Some other versions of "I'd Rather Be"

I'd rather be some nameless fisherman
Lost on the cold dark sea
Than waste my time waiting for love
From a man who's grown tired of me

I'd rather ride, that lonesome railroad
Steam and coal dust in my eyes
Than feel my bed getin' colder
Than the snow falling on the pines

Like a tree grown to close to the ocean
I have watched love wither away
The wind will dry... my tears as I go and
I won't think of you someday

So let me be just a beggar
With nothing left to lose
I won't hold tight to a memory
And a man who won't ever be true
