Bob Dylan: Love Sick, Cedar Rapids, Iowa – 3 April 2000 (video)

bob dylan 2000

I’m walking through streets that are dead
Walking, walking with you in my head
My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone’s distant cry?
I spoke like a child; you destroyed me with a smile
While I was sleeping

Five Seasons Center
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
3 April 2000

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar)
  • Charlie Sexton (guitar)
  • Larry Campbell (guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar & electric slide guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • David Kemper (drums & percussion)

I’m sick of love but I’m in the thick of it
This kind of love I’m so sick of it

I see, I see lovers in the meadow
I see, I see silhouettes in the window
I watch them ’til they’re gone and they leave me hanging on
To a shadow

I’m sick of love; I hear the clock tick
This kind of love; I’m love sick

Sometimes the silence can be like the thunder
Sometimes I feel like I’m being plowed under
Could you ever be true? I think of you
And I wonder

I’m sick of love; I wish I’d never met you
I’m sick of love; I’m trying to forget you

Just don’t know what to do
I’d give anything to be with you

  1. Love Sick has really grown on me. I used to dislike it,along with “Disease Of Conceit”and “Most Of The Time” because of the over-repetition of one line,which seemed as if Bob was deliberately easting his talent. Also,the thread-bare”lyrics”had me wondering if Bob had come to the end of the line.However,it takes on a life of its own in performance and thank God Bob rarely (deliberately?) mangles it.

  2. Fine version marred only by the modern scourge of loutish audience “wooing” during the performance.
