Performed by Bob Dylan at Brixton Academy, London, England – November 21, 2005.
Only first verse.
With an even flow of new Dylan books each year, at least 15 in 2020 and 17 in 2019, it’s hard to keep up.
Being a music fan who loves to visit places relevant to music history, the title of this book stirred some interest.
I’ve visited London many times during the last 30 years and checked off a lot “plaques” (and other spots) on my different bucket lists (music is not my only passion).
So did this book bring anything new to the table? Yes, indeed. Continue reading “Great new book: Bob Dylan in London: Troubadour Tales”→
Early one mornin’ the sun was shinin’
I was layin’ in bed
Wond’rin’ if she’d changed at all
If her hair was still red
Her folks they said our lives together
Sure was gonna be rough
They never did like Mama’s homemade dress
Papa’s bankbook wasn’t big enough
And I was standin’ on the side of the road
Rain fallin’ on my shoes
Heading out for the East Coast
Lord knows I’ve paid some dues gettin’ through
Tangled up in blue

Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it
And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin’ you to defy it
