Bob Dylan & Mark Knopfler: Things have changed, Rome 2011 (Video)


bob dylan mark knopfler 2011

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
I’m looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies
I’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Sound level on the video  is a bit low.. but a great performance & video.

This place ain’t doing me any good
I’m in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons, do the jitterbug rag
Ain’t no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he’s got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, lot of other stuff too
Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road
If the Bible is right, the world will explode
I’ve been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can’t win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheelbarrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don’t show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I’m in love with a woman who don’t even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I’m not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

  1. To hear this fantastic song, performed only 4 years ago,just shows how MUCH Bobs voice has improved! And I wish I knew what Charlie whispers in Bobs ear. Maybe- there is hot water whit honey waiting for you backstage.

  2. This song by Dylan , I assume he wrote it ; it has a very very dry humour about it . And what so often has happened the band drowns out the singer , but if your a Dylanite you only need to hear 3/4 ‘s of the words . The lyrics alone just printed says Bob Dylan on every line. That’s what I love about Bob’s songs ; it ‘s those words a personification of the ” Bard “.

  3. I liked the tempo on this one..The band was locked in…for a live Dylan performance..he didn’t mess with the timing ..like I have seen him do..good job Bob…

  4. Things have Changed is one of his last great songs, I guess . Great rhytm and great lyrics too. Used to play it 3 times, coming home from work.
    Musically this performance was not that great, too fast and too flat. But Bob’s acting gets better as his voice gets worse. Things keep changing.
