Bob Dylan: 6 Great live versions of “Girl From The North Country” (video & audio)

bob dylan

Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she’s wearing a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin’ winds

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That’s the way I remember her best.

“Girl From The North Country” rates 24 on a list of the songs he’s performed the most (hisbobness.info). Performed 546 times + a couple of 2014 performances.

Hearing two beautiful versions this weekend in Stavern & Kristiansand inspired this post.

Please feel free to use the comments section to suggest other great versions. I’m not uploading stuff, so I can’t promise I’ll find & include it.

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

  1. Love this song and to me no version is above Australia in the mid 80’s. It’s the tour With Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and it tops the Hard to Handle concert film.
