Who ya gonna serve?

Possibly the best interpretation of this Dylan song. And see who gets to his feet first for what became a standing ovation. From the Kennedy Center Honors, Washington, D.C. 1997.

Thanks for RWB (who is finally back from vacation) for not only pointing us to this new addition from the awesome rankflv, but also to the scripture the song is based on:

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

Rumor has it there was a missing verse ...

And you may be a rector with a pension that's sure
Or you may be a curate looking for a new cure
You may be a Vestryman, meetings to attend
You may be a layman wanting it to just end
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, serve somebody
Oh it may be the bishop or it may be the Lord but you're gonna have to serve somebody ...

At least rumor had it ...

This is great. Maybe we can get a group together and sing it New Orleans.
