Emmylou Harris Sings 5 Bob Dylan Songs – Happy Birthday Emmylou

…to work with people who inspired me early on like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, they are so dear to me as musicians and as people. To be able to call them friends and be a part of so many projects of theirs as well as bringing them on mine. And then to just hang out and write and be a part of that extraordinary world that is theirs.
-Emmylou Harris (2010)

I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight

Close your eyes, close the door
You don’t have to worry anymore
I’ll be your baby tonight


From the album “Gliding Bird” (1969)

Every Grain of Sand

In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need
When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed
There’s a dyin’ voice within me reaching out somewhere,
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.


From the album “Wrecking Ball” (1995)

When I Paint My Masterpiece

Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
Ancient footprints are everywhere.
You could almost think that you’re seeing double
On the cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs.


From the 3 CD box “Portraits” (1996)

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


Rodney Crowell & Emmylou – The Late Night Show in 2006

Ring Them Bells

Ring them bells ye heathen from the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries cross the valleys and streams
For they’re deep and they’re wide
And the world is on its side
And time is running backwards
And so is the bride


Ann Wilson, Emmylou Harris and Wynonna – DylanFest Nashville 2016
