I found hopeless love in the room above

A new song from Bob Dylan! Always an exciting event for myself, I have yet to hear this. It is available on the Lucky You soundtrack, a film about some dude who gambles or something. The soundtrack also features the Boss.

Here are the lyrics to the new Dylan song, 'Huck's Tune'

Well I wandered alone through a desert of stone
And I dreamt of my future wife
My sword's in my hand and I'm next in command
In this version of death called life

My plate and my cup are right straight up
I took a rose from the hand of a child
When I kiss your lips, the honey drips
I'm gonna have to put you down for a while

Every day we meet on any old street
And you're in your girlish prime
The short and the tall are coming to the ball
I go there all the time

Behind every tree there's something to see
The river is wider than a mile
I tried you twice, you can't be nice
I'm gonna have to put you down for a while

Here come the nurse with money in her purse
Here come the ladies and men
You push it all in and you've no chance to win
You play 'em on down to the end

I'm laying in the sand getting a sunshine tan
Moving along riding in style
From my toes to my head you knock me dead
I'm gonna have to put you down for a while

I count the years and I shed no tears
I'm blinded to what might have been
Nature's voice makes my heart rejoice
Play me the wild song of the wind

I found hopeless love in the room above
When the sun and the weather were riled
You're as fine as wine, I ain't handing you no line
I'm gonna have to put you down for a while

All the marry little elves can go hang themselves
My faith is as cold as can be
I'm stacked high to the roof and I'm not without proof
If you don't believe me, come see

You think I'm blue, I think so too
In my words you'll find no guile
The game's gotten old
The deck's gone cold
And I'm gonna have to put you down for a while

Huck's Tune

I am intrigued by "The river is wider than a mile" line. It seems to me to be a nod to the song "Moon River," which was also "wider than a mile."

"Moon River" also has a nod to Huckleberry Finn, which obviously ties into a song called "Huck's Tune" - even though the lead character in the film Lucky You, which this song was written for, is named Huck has Dylan managed a way to work Twain's Huck into the equation.

"Moon River" lyrics:
Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style someday
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
Wherever you're going I'm going your way
Two drifters off to see the world;
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waiting 'round the bend,
My huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me

I don't know about any of that, but as usual Dylan has created a set of lyrics with numerous references, which always intrigues me.

It is quite possible that it is a reference to Moon River, although it is probably equally as plausible that Dylan thought that it sounded good, or fitted that verse well.

The great thing is that we'll never know Dylan's real intentions were.
