Whither goest thou wither? Weather - wether: which or whether?

Lots of wrong lyrics posted online so nice to see the official ones posted here.

Born in Chains is a classic case in point, with many errors showing up.

On the Lemon trees blossom, almond trees wither... this is a lovely lovely line to show the passage of time. Lemons setting their buds in early winter as the almond trees begin to shed their leaves and store the goodness for the season to follow.

jarkko wrote:We have it now confirmed that in the song DID I EVER LOVE YOU there is a typo in the CD booklet
the line should be:
The almond trees wither (NOT whither)
It will be corrected in the next editions. I already changed it at http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/popularproblems.html
Thank you Jarkko, now I can sleep again at night, ;-)

"Whither" means "to what place", so the line means "Wherever you go...".
