Bob Dylan: Positively 4th Street, Brixton Academy London, England 24 November 2005 (Video)





bob dylan brixton 2005

You got a lotta nerve
To say you are my friend
When I was down
You just stood there grinning

You got a lotta nerve
To say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on
The side that’s winning

Brixton Academy
London, England
24 November 2005

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & piano)
  • Stu Kimball (guitar)
  • Denny Freeman (guitar)
  • Donnie Herron (violin, mandolin, pedal steel guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • George Recile (drums & percussion).


You say I let you down
You know it’s not like that
If you’re so hurt
Why then don’t you show it

You say you lost your faith
But that’s not where it’s at
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

I know the reason
That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd
You’re in with

Do you take me for such a fool
To think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide
What he don’t know to begin with

You see me on the street
You always act surprised
You say, “How are you?” “Good luck”
But you don’t mean it

When you know as well as me
You’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief
Perhaps I’d rob them

And now I know you’re dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don’t you understand
It’s not my problem

I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is
To see you

  1. I swear I seen Bob Dylan I n a hotel in Cheshire I said to the person i was with that is Bob Dylan but being polite even though I have a strong Liverpool aa a ccent and would have loved to have spoke but I new straight away . It would have been a great night . I remember it so clear I just wish I would have took a picture it most of all I wish I would of spoke.
    please reply

  2. never really heard a decent live version that stands up to the original recording though i quite liked it on the 86/87 tour with the heartbreakers.This version like so many in recent years is let down by the decline in Dylans vocals .The band sound good its just a shame about Bobs voice!
