EG: Was playing at Woodstock [1994] a special moment?
Bob Dylan: Nah, it was just another show, really. We just blew in and blew out of there. You do wonder if you’re coming across, because you feel so small on a stage like that.

A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall

I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways

Tears of Rage

We carried you in our arms
On Independence Day
And now you’d throw us all aside
And put us on our way


Woodstock ‘94
Saugerties, New York

It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last
But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun
Look out the saints are comin’ through
And it’s all over now, Baby Blue


The Orpheum Theatre

It Ain’t Me, Babe

Go away from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need


Roseland Ballroom

Shelter From The Storm

‘Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
Come in, she said
I’ll give ya shelter from the storm
