July 5: Bob Dylan Performes “Jokerman” @ St. James’ Park, Newcastle, England 1984 (video)





Standing on the waters casting your bread
While the eyes of the idol with the iron head are glowing
Distant ships sailing into the mist
You were born with a snake in both of your fists while a hurricane was blowing
Freedom just around the corner for you
But with the truth so far off, what good will it do?

Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
Bird fly high by the light of the moon
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman

I have to agree with the Newcastle 22nd reviews. This show was very special. From the opening Seeing the Real You At Last to the encores. I will never forget the echoing vocal on Cold Irons Bound which danced around the Arena, it was like listening to Moses.

Go ’way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need
You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Never weak but always strong
To protect you an’ defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door
But it ain’t me, babe
No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe

April 12: Bob Dylan House Of The Risin’ Sun, Newcastle, England 2007




Bob Dylan Newcastle 2007

There is a house down in New Orleans they call the rising sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor girl and me, oh God, I’m one.

My mother was a tailor, she sowed these new blue jeans
My sweetheart was a gambler, Lord, down in New Orleans.

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
