Friday Afternoon at the Cafe: Things Have Changed



Lot of water under the bridge,
Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen,
I'm only passing through


SATURDAY AM: Decided to put all the lyrics up - it's no wonder that Dylan won an Academy Award for this song, the same Oscar that travels around with him on the Neverending Tour duck-taped to his amp.

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin's eyes
I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain't doing me any good
I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I've been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I've been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can't win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed


B. Dylan 1999

Chukchansi Park will welcome some different boys of summer this August - the all-star music team of Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.

Dylan has announced an Aug. 14 Fresno date for his annual concert tour of minor league baseball parks. This year’s tour includes performances by Nelson and Mellencamp as well.

According to Dylan's Web site, tickets will go on sale May 30. There's a pre-sale though bobdylan.com that starts on May 25.


Tickets cost $67.50 and seating is general admission. Children 14 and under are admitted free with each adult ticket holder

That sounds way-fun! ;-) He's here in the DC area (in Maryland) in July and down in Norfolk as well. He's got Willie and Mellencamp with him (that usually means two other concerts along with his, not that they all perform together). My very first Dylan concert was with Willie Nelson.

Got to think about this! ;-) I guess he'll be doing stuff all the new album?
