Bob Dylan performing “Watching The River Flow” @ Newcastle, UK – April 12, 2007 (video)





What’s the matter with me
I don’t have much to say
Daylight sneakin’ through the window
And I’m still in this all-night café
Walkin’ to and fro beneath the moon
Out to where the trucks are rollin’ slow
To sit down on this bank of sand
And watch the river flow

Bob Dylan performing “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” @ Newcastle, UK – April 12, 2007 (video)





Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying

Tomorrow night
Will you remember what you said tonight?
Tomorrow night
Will all thrills be gone?
Tomorrow night
Will it be just another memory,
Or just another lovely song
That’s in my full heart to linger on?

Tomorrow Night” is a 1939 song written by Sam Coslow and Will Grosz. The same year Horace Heidt peaked at number sixteen with his version of the song.In 1948, Lonnie Johnson had a crossover hit on King Records (Johnson had also previously recorded the song for Paradise records in 1947) with the song, which had Johnson on guitar and Simeon Hatch on piano. Lonnie Johnson’s version hit number one on the R&B charts for seven non consecutive weeks and peaked at number nineteen on the pop chart.Lonnie Johnson’s version of “Tomorrow Night” would become his theme song and transformed the song into a blues standard. Lavern Baker had another hit on it in 1956. The song was recorded by Elvis Presley during his tenure at Sun records.  Bob Dylan recorded the song on his 1992 album Good As I Been To You.
