Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 2001





“I don’t even consider this work as part of my life. Not even close. My life doesn’t revolve around my work. Not even a little bit. I mean, I’ve got millions of fans and I know that and I’m more than happy to go out there and play for them… But that’s not my life. My life is private and personal and completely filled up.”
-Bob Dylan (Rome Press Conference, July 23, 2001)

Fourth Time Around

When she said
“Don’t waste your words, they’re just lies”
I cried she was deaf
And she worked on my face until breaking my eyes
Then said, “What else you got left?”
It was then that I got up to leave
But she said, “Don’t forget
Everybody must give something back
For something they get”

I got my back to the sun ’cause the light is too intense

One day you’ll open up your eyes and you’ll see where we are
