Bob Dylan: Simple Twist of Fate, 15 Great live versions (Video & Audio)

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

They walked along by the old canal
A little confused, I remember well
And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin’ bright
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate

“Simple Twist Of Fate”  is among Dylan’s finest songs and there many fantastic live versions available.

Here are 15.

First ever live performance @ WTTW-TV Studios Chicago, Illinois 10 September 1975:

Bob Dylan: 5 Great live versions of “One Too Many Mornings” (audio & video)





Down the street the dogs are barkin’
And the day is a-gettin’ dark
As the night comes in a-fallin’
The dogs’ll lose their bark
An’ the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind
For I’m one too many mornings
And a thousand miles behind
