First performed 26 December 1977, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica

 

28 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 4th Street-Legal session. Released on Street Legal

 

Do you love me or are you just extending goodwill

Do you need me half as bad as you say or are you just feeling guilt

I've been burned before and I know the score so you won't hear me complain

Will I be able to count on you or is your love in vain

 

Are you so fast that you cannot see that I must have solitude

When I am in the darkness, why do you intrude

Do you know my world, do you know my kind or must I explain

Will you let me be myself or is your love in vain

 

Well I've been to the mountain and I've been in the wind, I've been in and out of happiness

I have dined with kings, I've been offered wings and I've never been too impressed

 

All right, I'll take a chance, I will fall in love with you

If I'm a fool you can have the night, you can have the morning too

Can you cook and sew, make flowers grow, do you understand my pain

Are you willing to risk it all or is your love in vain

 

Can you cook and sew, make flowers grow, do you understand my pain

Are you willing to risk it all or is your love in vain

Señor, señor, can you tell me where we're headin', Lincoln County Road or Armageddon

Seems like I been down this way before, is there any truth in that, señor

 

Señor, señor, do you know where she is hidin', how long are we gonna be ridin'

How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door, will there be any comfort there, señor

 

There's a wicked wind still blowin' on that upper deck

There's an iron cross still hanging down from around her neck

There's a marchin' band still playin' in that vacant lot

Where she held me in her arms one time and said, forget me not

 

Señor, señor, I can see that painted wagon, smell the tail of the dragon

Can't stand the suspense anymore, can you tell me who to contact here, señor

 

Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeled

Was that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field

A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ring

He said, Son, this ain't a dream no more, it's the real thing

 

Señor, señor, you know their hearts they're as hard as leather, well, give me a minute, let me get it together

I just gotta pick myself up off the floor, I'm ready when you are, señor

 

Señor, señor, let's overturn these tables, disconnect these cables

This place don't make sense to me no more, can you tell me what we're waiting for, señor

No Time To Think (Bob Dylan)

First performed 26 December 1977, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica

 

27 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 3rd Street-Legal session. Released on Street Legal

 

In death, you face life with a child and a wife who sleep-walks through your dreams into walls

You're a soldier of mercy and you're cold and you curse he who cannot be trusted must fall

 

Loneliness, tenderness, high society, notoriety, you fight for the throne and you travel alone

Unknown as you slowly sink and there's no time to think

 

In the Federal City you been blown and shown pity in secret, for pieces of change

The empress attracts you but oppression distracts you and it makes you feel violent and strange

 

Memory, ecstasy, tyranny, hypocrisy, betrayed by a kiss on a cool night of bliss

In the valley of the missing link and you have no time to think

 

Judges will haunt you, the country priestess will want you, her worst is better than best.

I've seen all these decoys through a set of deep turquoise eyes and I feel so depressed

 

China doll, alcohol, duality, mortality, Mercury rules you and destiny fools you

Like the plague, with a dangerous wink and there's no time to think

 

Your conscience betrayed you when some tyrant waylaid you where the lion lies down with the lamb

I'd have paid off the traitor and killed him much later but that's just the way that I am

 

Paradise, sacrifice, mortality, reality, but the magician is quicker and his game

Is much thicker than blood and blacker than ink and there's no time to think

 

[Vermin] and jealousy's all that he sells us, he's content when you're under his thumb

Madmen oppose him but your kindness throws him to survive if you play deaf and dumb

 

Equality, liberty, humility, simplicity, you glance through the mirror and there's eyes staring clear

At the back of your head as you drink and there's no time to think

 

Warlords of sorrow and queens of tomorrow will offer their heads for a prayer

You can't find no salvation, have no expectations anytime, anyplace, anywhere

 

Mercury, gravity, nobility, humility, you know you can't keep her and the water gets deeper

And it's leading you onto the brink and there's no time to think

 

You've murdered your vanity, buried your sanity for pleasure you must now resist

Lovers obey you but they cannot sway you, they're not even sure you exist

 

Socialism, hypnotism, patriotism, materialism, fools making laws for the breaking of jaws

And the sound of the keys as they clink and there's no time to think

 

The bridge that you travel on goes to the Babylon girl with the rose in her hair

Starlight in the East, you're finally released, you're stranded but with nothing to share

 

Loyalty, unity, epitome, rigidity, you turn around for one real last glimpse of Camille

'Neath the moon shinin' bloody and pink and there's no time to think

 

Bullets can harm you and death can disarm you but no, you will not be deceived

Stripped of all virtue as you crawl through the dirt, you can give but you cannot receive

No time to choose when the truth must die, no time to lose or say goodbye

No time to prepare for the victim that's there, no time to suffer or blink

And no time to think

I'm getting weary looking in my baby's eyes, when she's near me she's so hard to recognize

But I finally realize there's no room for regret, true love, true love, true love tends to forget

 

Hold me, baby be near, you told me that you'd be sincere

But every day of the year's like playin' Russian roulette, true love, true love, true love tends to forget

 

I was lyin' down in the reeds without any oxygen, I saw you in the wilderness among the men

I saw you drift into infinity and come back again, all you got to do is wait and I'll tell you when

 

You're a tearjerker, baby, but I'm under your spell, you're a hard worker, baby, but I know you well

And this weekend in hell is making me sweat

True love, true love, true love tends to forget,  true love, true love, true love tends to forget

 

I was lyin' down in the reeds without any oxygen, I saw you in the wilderness among the men

Saw you drift into infinity and come back again, all you got to do is wait and I'll tell you when

 

You belong to me, baby, without a doubt, don't forsake me, baby, don't sell me out

Don't keep me knockin' about from Mexico to Tibet

First performed 26 December 1977, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica

 

26 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 2nd Street-Legal session, #3. Released on Street Legal

 

I think we better talk this over, maybe when we both get sober

You'll understand I'm only a man doin' the best that I can

 

This situation can only get rougher, why should we needlessly suffer

Let's call it a day, go our own different ways before we decay

 

You don't have to be afraid of looking into my face

We've done nothing to each other time will not erase, ohh

 

I feel displaced, I got a low-down feeling,you been two-faced, you been double-dealing

I took a chance, got caught in the trance of a downhill dance

 

Oh, child, why you wanna hurt me, I'm exiled, you can't convert me

I'm lost in the haze of your delicate ways with both eyes glazed

 

You don't have to yearn for love, you don't have to be alone

Somewheres in this universe there's a place that you can call home

 

I guess I'll be leaving tomorrow, if I have to beg, steal or borrow

It'd be great to cross paths in a day and a half look at each other and laugh

 

But I don't think it's liable to happen, I like the sound of one hand clappin'

The vows that we kept are now broken and swept 'neath the bed where we slept

 

Don't think of me and fantasize on what we've never had

Be grateful for what we've shared together and be glad, ohh

 

Why should we go on watching each other through a telescope

Eventually we'll hang ourselves on all this tangled rope

 

Oh, babe, time for a new transition, I wish I was a magician

I would wave a wand and tie back the bond that we've both gone beyond

Where Are You Tonight? (Journey Through Dark Heat) (Bob Dylan)

26 December 1977, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica

 

27 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 3rd Street-Legal session. Released on Street Legal

 

There's a long-distance train rolling through the rain, tears on the letter I write

There's a woman I long to touch and I'm missing her so much, but she's drifting like a satellite

There's a neon light ablaze in a green smoky haze and laughter down on Elizabeth Street

And a lonesome bell tone in that valley of stone where she bathed in a stream of pure heat

 

Her father would emphasize you got to be more than street-wise but he practiced what he preached from the heart

A full-blooded Cherokee, he predicted it to me, the time and the place that we'd part

There's a baby in the arms of a woman in a rage and a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage

And she winds back the clock and she turns back the page of a book that nobody can write

Oh, where are you tonight?

 

The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure to live it you have to explode

In that last hour of need, we entirely agreed sacrifice was the code of the road

I left town at dawn, with Marcel and St. John, strong men belittled by doubt

I couldn't tell her what my private thoughts were but she had some way of finding them out

 

He took dead-center aim but he missed just the same, she was waiting, putting flowers on the shelf

She could feel my despair as I climbed up her hair and discovered her invisible self

There's a lion in the road, there's a demon escaped, there's a million dreams gone, there's a landscape being raped

As her beauty fades and I watch her undrape, well I won't, but then, maybe again I might

Oh, if I could just find you tonight?

 

I fought with my twin, that enemy within 'til both of us fell by the way

Horseplay and disease is killing me by degrees while the law looks the other way

Your partners in crime hit me up for nickels and dimes,the man you were lovin' couldn't stay clean

It felt outa place, my foot in his face but he should-a stayed where his money was green

 

I bit into the root of forbidden fruit with the juice running down my leg

Then I dealt with your boss, who'd never known about loss, who always was too proud to beg

There's a white diamond gloom on the dark side of this room and a pathway that leads up to the stars

If you don't believe there's a price for this sweet paradise, just remind me to show you the scars

 

There's a new day at dawn and I've finally arrived, if I'm there in the morning, baby, you'll know I've survived

I can't believe it, I can't believe I'm alive but without you it just doesn't seem right

Oh, where are you tonight?

 

Hey

 

VARIATIONS Where Are You Tonight? Compared with the takes released on Street Legal, recorded 27 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 3rd Street-Legal session

 

There's a long-distance train rolling through the rain

Tears on the letter I write

There's a woman I long to touch and I'm missing her so much

     Oh I love the touch, and I miss her so much                                                                                 1 Nov 1978, Madison

But she's drifting like a satellite

 

There's a neon light ablaze in a green smoky haze

And laughter down on Elizabeth Street

And a lonesome bell tone in that valley of stone

Where she bathed in a stream of pure heat

 

Her father would emphasize you got to be more than streetwise

     Her daddy would emphasize you got to be more than streetwise                                             1 Nov 1978, Madison

But he practiced what he preached from the heart

A full-blooded Cherokee, he predicted it to me

The time and the place that we'd part

 

There's a baby in the arms of a woman in a rage

And a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage

And she winds back the clock and she turns back the page

     And she winds back the clock and she pulls back the page                                                     20 Oct 1978, Richfield

Of a book that nobody can write

Oh, where are you tonight?

 

The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure

To live it you have to explode

     To live it you got to explode                                                                                                             1 Nov 1978, Madison

In that last hour of need, we entirely agreed

Sacrifice was the code of the road

 

I left town at dawn, with Marcel and St. John

Strong men belittled by doubt

I couldn't tell her what my private thoughts were

But she had some way of finding them out

     But she sure had some way of finding them out                                                                          1 Nov 1978, Madison

 

He took dead-center aim but he missed just the same

You may get it maybe never, but it's coming from the heart

 

Your mind is filled with indecision, you can't make up your mind

We must get it in position and move it on down the line

Changing Of The Guards

First performed 25 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios

 

28 April 1978, Santa Monica, California, Rundown Studios. 4th Street-Legal session. Released on Street Legal

 

Sixteen years, sixteen banners united over the fields

Where the good shepherd grieves

Desperate men, desperate women divided

Spreading their wings 'neath the falling leaves

 

Fortune calls, I stepped forth from the shadows to the marketplace

Merchants and thieves, hungry for power, my last deal gone down

She's smelling sweet like the meadows where she was born

On midsummer's eve, near the tower

 

The cold-blooded moon, the captain waits above the celebration

Sending his thoughts to a beloved maid

Whose ebony face is beyond communication

The captain is down but still believing that his love will be repaid

 

They shaved her head, she was torn between Jupiter and Apollo

A messenger arrived with a black nightingale

I seen her on the stairs and I couldn't help but follow

Follow her down past the fountain where they lifted her veil

 

I stumbled to my feet, I rode past destruction in the ditches

With the stitches still mending 'neath a heart-shaped tattoo

Renegade priests and treacherous young witches

Were handing out the flowers that I'd given to you

 

The palace of mirrors where dog soldiers are reflected

The endless road and the wailing of chimes

The empty rooms where her memory is protected

Where the angels' voices whisper to the souls of previous times

 

She wakes him up, forty-eight hours later, the sun is breaking

Near broken chains, mountain laurel and rolling rock

She's begging to know what measures he now will be taking

He's pulling her down and she's clutching on to his long golden locks

 

Gentlemen, he said, I don't need your organization, I've shined your shoes

I've moved your mountains and marked your cards

But Eden is burning, either get braced for elimination

Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards

 

Peace will come with tranquility and splendor on the wheels of fire

But will offer us no reward when her false idols fall

And cruel death surrenders with its pale ghost retreating

Between the King and the Queen of Swords

Blue sky upon the horizon, private eye is on my trail

If I don't be there by morning, you know that I must have spent the night in jail

 

I've been running from Memphis to L. A., had an appointment set sometime for today

And if I don't be there by morning, you know that I must have gone the other way

 

Finding my way back to you girl, lonely and blue and mistreated too

Sometimes I think of you girl, is it true that you think of me too

 

I got a woman living in L. A., I got a woman waiting for my pay

And if I don't be there by morning, pack my clothes, get down on your knees and pray

 

Finding my way back to you, girl, lonely and blue, and mistreated too

Sometimes I think of you, girl, is it true you think of me too

 

I left my woman with a twenty-dollar bill,

I left her waiting, I hope she's waiting for me still.

But if I don't be there by morning, I guess that I, I never will.

Walk out if it doesn't feel right, I can tell you're only lying

If you got something better tonight, then don't mess up my mind with your crying

Walk out of my life if you don't feel right

And catch the next train, oh, darling, walk out in the rain.

 

I have come from so far away, just to put a ring on your finger.

If you've said all that you've got to say, then please don't feel the need to linger.

Walk out of my life if you don't feel right

And catch the next train, oh, darling, walk out in the rain, in the rain

 

It's rainin' outside of the city, my poor feet have walked 'til they're sore

If you don't want my love, it's a pity, I guess I can't see you no more

Walk out of my life if you don't feel right

And catch the next train, oh, darling, walk out in the rain, in the rain

Helena Springs Vocal

 

You’re fighting for existence, you hate me 'cos I'm pure

Put a hurting on me baby and you make me insecure

But to be strong I must be weak or else I won't endure

I love you, but I love you unaware

And that's more than flesh and blood can bear

More than flesh and blood can bear

I reach for you at midnight just to find you're never there

And its more than flesh and blood can bear

 

I see you at the party baby trying to converse

The room is going round and round and now it’s in reverse

Don't give into the spirit, the spirit is adverse

Beware because your feeble mind will tear

Now this is more than flesh and blood can bear

More than flesh and blood can bear

Don't discard the lily like the garment that you wear

It's more than flesh and blood can bear

 

Time regards a pretty face like time regards a fool

You drive off in your Cadillac and leave me with the mule

In order to keep up with you I must go back to school

I see right through the wicked way you stare

And that's more than flesh and blood can bear

Oh, more than flesh and blood can bear

Do yourself a favor 'cos I know you're never there

And its more than flesh and blood can bear

 

I'm going down to find a church that I understand

I need new inspiration and you're only just a man.

And with the blackjack table I can't play another hand

The meat you cook for me is bloody rare

Yeah it's more than flesh and blood can bear

Oh, more than flesh and blood can bear

Take the saddle off your horse and give yourself a chair

More than flesh and blood can bear
