And it never seemed strange

But now I just pass mournfully by that place where the bones of life are piled

I know somethiní has changed

Iím a stranger here and no one sees me, except you, yeah you

 

Nothing anymore seems to please me, except you, yeah you

Nothing hypnotizes me or holds me in a spell

Except you, yeah you, I'm in love with you

First Performed June 1973, New York City, New York

 

2 November 1973, Santa Monica, California, Village Recorder. 1st Planet Waves recordings session. Released on Planet Waves track 7 (fast version)

 

Twilight on the frozen lake, a north wind about to break

On footprints in the snow, silence down below

 

Youíre beautiful beyond words, youíre beautiful to me

You could make me cry, never say goodbye

 

Because my dreams are made of iron and steel

With a big bouquet of roses hanging down from the heavens to the ground

 

The crashing waves roll over me as I stand upon the sand

And wait for you to come and grab hold of my hand

 

Oh, baby, baby, baby blue, youíll change your last name, too

Youíve turned your hair to brown, love to see it hanginí down

Something There Is About You (Bob Dylan)

First performed 5 November 1973, Santa Monica, California

 

6 November 1973, Santa Monica, California, Village Recorder. 3rd Planet Waves recordings session. Released on Planet Waves

 

Something there is about you that strikes a match in me

Is it the way your body moves or is it the way your hair blows free?

Or is it because you remind me of something that used to be

Somethiní that's crossed over from another century?

 

Thought Iíd shaken the wonder and the phantoms of my youth

Rainy days on the Great Lakes, walkiní the hills of old Duluth

There was me and Danny Lopez, cold eyes, black night and then there was Ruth

Something there is about you that brings back a long-forgotten truth

 

Suddenly I found you and the spirit in me sings

Donít have to look no further, youíre the soul of many things

I could say that Iíd be faithful, I could say it in one sweet, easy breath

But to you that would be cruelty and to me it surely would be death

 

Something there is about you that moves with style and grace

I was in a whirlwind, now Iím in some better place

My handís on the sabre and youíve picked up on the baton

Somethiní there is about you that I canít quite put my finger on

First performed 5 November 1973, Santa Monica, California

 

6 November 1973, Santa Monica, California, Village Recorder. 3rd Planet Waves recordings session. Released on Planet Waves

 

Tough Mama, meat shakiní on your bones

I'm gonna go down to the river and get some stones

Sister's on the highway with that steel-drivin' crew

Papa's in the big house, his workin' days are through

Tough Mama, can I blow a little smoke on you?

 

Dark beauty, won't you move over and give me some room

It's my duty to bring you down to the field where the flowers bloom

Ashes in the furnace, dust un the rise

You came through it all the way, flying through the skies

Dark beaty, with that long nightís journey in your eyes

 

Sweet Goddess, born of a blinding light and a changing wind

Now, donít be modest, you know who you are and where youíve been

Jack the cowboy went up north, heís buried in the past

Lone Wolf went out drinking, that was over pretty fast

Sweet Goddess, your perfect strangerís cominí on in at last

 

Silver Angel, with the badge of the lonesome road written on your sleeve

Iíd be grateful if this golden ring you'd receive

Today on the countryside it was a-hotter than a crotch

I stood alone upon the ridge and all I did was watch

Sweet Goddess, it must be time to carve another notch

 

Iím crestfallen, the world of illusion's at my door

I ainít a-hauling any of my lambs to the marketplace anymore

The prison walls are crumbling down, there is no end in sight

Iíve gained some recognition but I lost my appetite

Sweet Beauty, meet me at the border late tonight

On A Night Like This (Bob Dylan)

First performed 6 November 1973, Santa Monica, California

 

8 November 1973, Santa Monica, California, Village Recorder. 4th Planet Waves recordings session. Released on Planet Waves

 

On a night like this, Iím so glad you came around

Hold on to me so tight and heat up some coffee grounds

We got much to talk about and much to reminisce

It sure is right on a night like this

 

On a night like this, Iím so glad you're to stay

Hold on to me, pretty miss, and say youíll never go away to stray

Run your fingers down my spine and bring me a touch of bliss

It sure feels right on a night like this

 

On a night like this, I canít get any sleep

The air is so cold outside and the snowís so deep

Build a fire, throw on logs and listen to it hiss

And let it burn, burn, burn, burn on a night like this

 

Put your body next to mine and keep me company

There is plenty a-room for all, so please donít elbow me

 

Let the four winds blow around this old cabin door

If Iím not too far off, I think we did this once before

Thereís more frost on the window glass with each new tender kiss

But it sure feels right, on a night like this

Wedding Song (Bob Dylan)

First performed 9 November 1973, Santa Monica, California

 

9 November 1973, Santa Monica, California, Village Recorder. 5th Planet Waves recordings session. Released on Planet Waves

 

I love you more than ever, more than time and more than love

I love you more than money and more than the stars above

Love you more than madness, more than dreams upon the sea

I love you more than life itself, you mean that much to me

 

Ever since you walked right in, the circleís been complete

Iíve said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street

To the courtyards of the jester which is hidden from the sun

I love you more than ever and I havenít yet begun

 

You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live

When I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give

Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from the hole

I love you more than ever and it burns me to the soul

 

You gave me babies one, two, three, what is more, you saved my life

Eye for eye and tooth for tooth, your love cuts like a knife

My thoughts of you donít ever rest, theyíd kill me if I lie

But Iíd sacrifice the world for you to watch my senses die

 

The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth

Weíll play it out the best we know, whatever it is worth

Whatís lost is lost, we canít regain what went down in the flood

But happiness to me is you and I love you more than blood

 

Itís never been my duty to remake the world at large

Nor is it my intention to sound the battle charge

íCause I love you more than all of that with a love that doesnít bend

And if there is eternity Iíd love you there again

 

Oh, canít you see that you were born to stand by my side

And I was born to be with you, you were born to be my bride

Youíre the other half of what I am, youíre the missing piece

And I love you more than ever with that love that doesnít cease

 

You turn the tide on me each day and teach my eyes to see

Just being next to you is a natural thing for me

And I could never let you go, no matter what goes on

ĎCause I love you more than ever now that the past is gone

I hate myself for loviní you and the weakness that it showed

You were just a painted face on a trip down Suicide Road

The stage was set, the lights went out all around the old hotel

I hate myself for loviní you and Iím glad the curtain fell

 

I hate that foolish game we played and the need that was expressed

And the mercy that you showed to me, who ever would have guessed?

I went out on Lower Broadway and I felt that place within

That hollow place where martyrs weep and angels play with sin

 

Heard your songs of freedom and man forever stripped

Acting out his folly while his back is being whipped

Like a slave in orbit, heís beaten ítil heís tame

All for a momentís glory and itís a dirty, rotten shame

 

There are those who worship loneliness, Iím not one of them

In this age of fiberglass, Iím searching for a gem

The crystal ball up on the wall hasnít shown me nothing yet

Iíve paid the price of solitude, but at last Iím out of debt

 

Canít recall a useful thing you ever did for me

íCept pat me on the back one time when I was on my knees

We stared into each otherís eyes ítil one of us would break

No use to apologize, what difference would it make?

 

So sing your praise of progress and of the Doom Machine

The naked truth is still taboo whenever it can be seen

Lady Luck, who shines on me, will tell you where Iím at

I hate myself for loviní you, but I should get over that

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (Robbie Robertson)

First performed 3 January 1974, Chicago

 

Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train

'Til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive

By May the tenth, Richmond had fell

It's a time I remember, oh so well

 

The night they drove old Dixie down and the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

 

Back with my wife in Tennessee

When one day she called to me

"Virgil, quick, come see, there goes Robert E.Lee"

Now I don't mind choppin' wood

And I don't care if the money's no good

Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

 

The night they drove old Dixie down and the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

 

Like my father before me, I will work the land

And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand

He was just eighteen, proud and brave

But a Yankee laid him in his grave

I swear by the mud below my feet

You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

 

[Chorus]

The night they drove old Dixie down and the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

The night they drove old Dixie down and the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down and the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

 

Stage Fright (Robbie Robertson)

First performed 3 January 1974, Chicago

 

Now deep in the heart of a lonely kid

Who suffered so much for what he did

They gave this ploughboy his fortune and fame

Since that day he ain't been the same

 

See the man with the stage fright just standin' up there to give it all his might

And he got caught in the spotlight but when we get to the end

He wants to start all over again

 

I've got fire water right on my breath

And the doctor warned me I might catch a death

Said, "You can make it in your disguise

Just never show the fear that's in your eyes"

 

See the man with the stage fright just standin' up there to give it all his might

And he got caught in the spotlight but when we get to the end

He wants to start all over again

 

Now if he says that he's afraid

Take him at his word

And for the price that the poor boy has paid

He gets to sing just like a bird, oh, ooh ooh ooh

 

Your brow is sweatin' and your mouth gets dry

Fancy people go driftin' by

The moment of truth is right at hand

Just one more nightmare you can stand

 

See the man with the stage fright just standin' up there to give it all his might

And he got caught in the spotlight but when we get to the end

He wants to start all over again

 

Hmm hmm

You wanna try it once again, hmm hmm

Please, don't make him stop, hmm hmm

Let him take it from the top, hmm hmm

Let him start all over again

 

Share Your Love With Me (Briggs, Malone)

First performed 3 January 1974, Chicago

 

It's an ill wind that blows no good

And it's a sad heart that won't love like it should

Oh, how lonesome you must be, yeah

And it's a shame if you don't share your love with me

Love with me

 

An it's a heartache when love is gone

But it's bad and even sad later on

There's no one blinder than he who won't see it

And it's a shame if you don't share your love with me

Love with me

 

And I can't help it, oh no, if she is gone

You must try to forget, oh, you must live on

And I say, it's a good thing to love someone

But it's bad and even sad when it's not returned

 

And oh, how lonesome, yes, you must be, yeah

And it's a shame if you don't share your love with me

And I said, it's a shame, oh, if you don't share your love with me

Oh, yeah
