Bob Dylan: 5 Great live versions of “I’ll Remember You”

empire1

 

I’ll remember you
When I’ve forgotten all the rest
You to me were true
You to me were the best
When there is no more
You cut to the core
Quicker than anyone I knew
When I’m all alone
In the great unknown
I’ll remember you

An ok song from “Empire Burlesque” (1985), but there are loads of Great live versions.

Dylan performed it over 200 times live between 1986 & 2005.

Here are five great live versions:

Westfalenhalle 1
Dortmund, West Germany
15 September 1987

I’ll remember you
At the end of the trail
I had so much left to do
I had so little time to fail
There’s some people that
You don’t forget
Even though you’ve only seen ’m one time or two
When the roses fade
And I’m in the shade
I’ll remember you

Didn’t I, didn’t I try to love you?
Didn’t I, didn’t I try to care?
Didn’t I sleep, didn’t I weep beside you
With the rain blowing in your hair?

Shoreline Amphitheatre
Mountain View, California
11 June 1988

I’ll remember you
When the wind blows through the piney wood
It was you who came right through
It was you who understood
Though I’d never say
That I done it the way
That you’d have liked me to
In the end
My dear sweet friend
I’ll remember you
