Bob Dylan: Pavillon de Paris, Paris, France – 3 July 1978 (audio)

bob dylan paris 1978 3 july

Dylan returns to Paris 12 years after his legendary Olympia concert, and this time no guitars are out of tune! At the soundcheck, Dylan and the band run through “Something There Is about You,” “True Love Tends to Forget,” “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” an old blues tune (probably called “Fix It Ma”), and “To Ramona.” For the show, Dylan replaces the two opening songs of the second half (“One of Us Must Know” and “You’re a Big Girl Now”) with “True Love Tends to Forget” and the rewrite of “The Man in Me” performed on the Far East leg. Between these comes an acoustic song, “It Ain’t Me, Babe.” As with the English press, the reception by the French media is
enthusiastic.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young
