Bob Dylan: I’ll Remember you, London, England 8 February 1990 (video)

bob dylan london 1990

I’ll remember you
When I’ve forgotten all the rest
You to me were true
You to me were the best
When there is no more
You cut to the core
Quicker than anyone I knew
When I’m all alone
In the great unknown
I’ll remember you

We first hear the dying seconds of “You’re A Big Girl Now”, then a GREAT version of “I’ll Remember You” kicks in…

Hammersmith Odeon
London, England
8 February 1990

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar)
  • G. E. Smith (guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • Christopher Parker (drums)

I’ll remember you
At the end of the trail
I had so much left to do
I had so little time to fail
There’s some people that
You don’t forget
Even though you’ve only seen ’m one time or two
When the roses fade
And I’m in the shade
I’ll remember you

Didn’t I, didn’t I try to love you?
Didn’t I, didn’t I try to care?
Didn’t I sleep, didn’t I weep beside you
With the rain blowing in your hair?

I’ll remember you
When the wind blows through the piney wood
It was you who came right through
It was you who understood
Though I’d never say
That I done it the way
That you’d have liked me to
In the end
My dear sweet friend
I’ll remember you

  1. I experienced him opening his Regina Saskatchewan show with, I’ll Remember You. Long forgotten emotions and memories poured out of me. Quite a surprise that night.

  2. To put this into context. Bob had just finished Disease of Conceit at the piano (the most exciting moment I have seen in more then 230 live Dylan shows attended). This video opens with Bob asking the crowd “Okay?” to which the response was somewhat ecstatic to put it mildly; this after 9 previous nights of him pointedly ignoring the grand piano. The band starts into Your A Big Girl Now but Bob speaks to GE Smith and they switch to I’ll Remember you. Without a doubt Bob’s tribute to the fantastic crowd and enthusiasm he’d had the previous 5 nights at Hammersmith and the preceding 4 nights in Paris at the Rex. I saw this all from the front row center seat I had that night. Quite extraordinary times.
