July 4: Bob Dylan: Simple Twist Of Fate, Bonn, Germany 2012 (Video)





Bob Dylan bonn 2012

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

No hat & plenty of smiles…

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

A saxophone someplace far off played
As she was walkin’ by the arcade
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin’ up,
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a simple twist of fate

He woke up, the room was bare
He didn’t see her anywhere
He told himself he didn’t care, pushed the window open wide
Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate
Brought on by a simple twist of fate

He hears the ticking of the clocks
And walks along with a parrot that talks
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in
Maybe she’ll pick him out again, how long must he wait
Once more for a simple twist of fate

People tell me it’s a sin
To know and feel too much within
I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring
She was born in spring, but I was born too late
Blame it on a simple twist of fate

June 21: Bob Dylan – Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right München 1991 (video)





bob dylan munchen 1991

Here’s a song about … Sometimes, like just today, somebody was coming to my hotel and stopped me on the street and he grabbed me around the shoulders and said “Mr. Zimmerman!” (pronounced with thick German accent!) These kind of things kind of shake a person up sometimes. And long ago somebody said the same thing. He didn’t know me and he got run over by a street-car, in the middle of the street. It was a sad thing, but there wasn’t anything for me to do but go back and write this song. And after it was written, that’s when it was sung.
~Intro to this version of Don’t Think Twice

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
An’ it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m trav’lin’ on
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

Lost John sitting on a railroad track
Something’s out of wack
Blues this morning falling down like hail
Gonna leave a greasy trail

Gonna travel the world is what I’m gonna do
Then come back and see you
All I ever do is struggle and strive
If I don’t do anybody any harm, I might make it back home alive
