– Thank you very much. This is a love ballad I wrote a few years back about three
people who are in love with each other. (before Tangled Up In Blue)
– Thank you. I first played this at the Newport Folk Festival, 1963 and they kicked
me out of town. But I keep on playing it anyway, it’s called
I Ain’t Gonna Work On Maggie’s Farm No More.
– Thank you. We’re gonna take a break right here, just a short break so we can
unwind. Anyway, here’s a song I recorded with The Band. Remember The Band?
It was on a record called Planet Waves. Sold about six copies.
So, we’ll see you in a short while. (before Going, Going, Gone)

– Thank you ladies and gentlemen. On the drums tonight, give him a warm hand,
Mr. Ian Wallace. All right, on the bass guitar, Mr. Jerry Scheff.
On the keyboards the one and only Alan Pasqua.
All right, on the lead guitar, the very brilliant, unpredictable, dangerous, sexy
Mr. Billy Cross. He’s the oldest member of this group.
All right, on the rhythm guitar, a man who doesn’t speak a word of English,
but he plays his heart out. Ladies and gentlemen from Bogota, Colombia, Steven Soles.
On the mandolin and guitar, and violin, youngest member of this group.
Doesn’t smoke dope, doesn’t drink whiskey, chase women, swear, anything,
he’s a pure musician. David Mansfield, fifteen years old and he’s been with me
for five years. On the tenor saxophone, the phenomenal Steve Douglas. Thank you.
On the backup vocals tonight, as every night, on the right my ex-girlfriend,
Jo Ann Harris. In the middle, my current girlfriend, Helena Springs.
And on the left, my fiancÈe of course, Carolyn Dennis. Wishful thinking.
On the conga drums, from Detroit City, the amazing Miss Bobbye Hall.
All right this is It’s Alright Ma, I’m Only Bleeding.
– All right, we gotta go now, but we’re here tomorrow night so we’ll be glad to
see you then. All right this is a song I wrote a few years back for one of my
babies, when he was a baby. So I’ll leave you with this. I recorded this with
The Band too, on that same album called Planet Waves. All right we’ll see you
later then. (before Forever Young)
