Is there a place we can go?
Is there anybody we can see?
Maybe, it’s the same for you as it is for me

I ain’t seen my family in twenty years
That ain’t easy to understand
They may be dead by now
I lost track of them after they lost their land

The live versions of this great song from “Tempest” have been a triumph. It has been a highlight @ many of his concerts the last 3 years.

Shake it up baby twist and shout
You know what it’s all about
What are you doing out there in the sun anyway?
Don’t you know the sun can burn your brains right out?

My enemy crashed into the dust
Stopped dead in his tracks and he lost his lust
He was run down hard and he broke apart
He died in shame he had an iron heart

I wear dark glasses to cover my eyes
There are secrets in them I can’t disguise
Come back baby if I ever hurt your feelings I apologize

Two trains running side by side
Forty miles wide, down the eastern line
You don’t have to go
I just came to you because your a friend of mine

I think that when my back was turned
The whole world behind me burned
It’s been awhile since we walked down that long, long aisle

We cried on that cold and frosty morn
We cried because our souls were torn
So much for tears, so much for these long and wasted years

  1. I must say some of the ‘pirated’ videos we see these days are just outstanding. Especially those with decent sound and close ups. Please keep taking those great videos tapers!!
    Forbidden fruit is the sweetest!

  2. I wish Bob Dylan would allow good videos to be made at his performances. He knows that we know that he is not 22 anymore, he should also know that we still love him and his music!
