Forgetful heart
Lost your power of recall
Every little detail
You don’t remember at all
The times we knew
Who would remember better than you?

November 23: Watch Bob Dylan singing Tangled Up In Blue in London 2003

bob dylan london 2003

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

November 21: Watch Bob Dylan singing a beautiful “Visions of Johanna” in London 2005

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

Great version.

Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

My Favourite Stones song. The original album version can hardly be surpassed, but there many great live versions, here are 5 wonderful examples & the album (Let It Bleed – 1969) version.

Album version:

War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
