Lucinda Williams sings 5 Bob Dylan songs – Happy Birthday Lucinda Williams

Dylan made such an impression on me. In 1965, one of my dad’s students came over to the house and walked in with a copy of Highway 61 Revisited. While he met with my dad, I put the album on, and it blew my 12-year-old mind. In the Seventies, Dylan came into [New York club] Folk City, and I got up to sing a few songs with the band that was playing. The owner of the club introduced me to Bob. He said, “Keep in touch — we’re gonna go on the road soon.” It was like somebody back in the day meeting James Dean. It was so riveting.

Not Dark Yet

Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal



Positively 4th Street

You got a lotta nerve
To say you are my friend
When I was down
You just stood there grinning


Make You Feel My Love

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love


Trying To Get To Heaven

The air is getting hotter
There’s a rumbling in the skies
I’ve been wading through the high muddy water
With the heat rising in my eyes


Masters of War

Come, you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
