Remember those carnivals they used to have? All those carnivals (Ö..). Last carnival was back in the 50ís. (Ö..) had what they called a geek. You all know what a geek is? In those days a geek was a man whoís in a sideshow that eats a live chicken. He bites the head off, eats that. Then he eats the rest of it, heart, blood, everything. Sweeps the rest of it, all thatís left over up with a broom. In them days it cost a quarter to see him. Nowadays it might be about 15 bucks, but back then it cost a quarter. Anyway, most people didn’t have too much to do with this man. Most people kept their distance from him, if you wanna know the truth. I was speaking one day to the lady with a beard at the breakfast table and she was telling me, “This man is awful strange, low down, more low down than low down, doesn’t bother with anybody.” So she said, ìJust to give you an idea how (Ö..) he is, he thinks of everybody else as being freaks. He thinks he’s the only straight person around. Everybody else is a freak.î I said “Uh-uh” Years later, I remembered that as I was starting (Ö..). When people started looking at me in a strange way. So, one of them days I sat all by myself and I wrote this song. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
Hereís a song I sang at Newport Folk Festival in 1963. It got me booed out of town. Itís hard to believe this song caused such a disturbance, but it did. Itís called I Ainít Gonna Work On Maggieís Farm No More.
Thank you. I was riding on a train one time from Mexico, from Monterey to San Diego. Anyway, Iíd fallen asleep and when I woke up this train was in (the yard). A family was getting off the train, an old man stepped up on the train. I was still in a daze, so I was looking, I was watching it all through the window which was looking like a big mirror. And I watched all the time through this mirror. This old man stepped up on the train and walked down the aisle, took a seat by me across the aisle. Wearing nothing but a blanket. He must have been about 150 years old. Anyway, I wasÖkept looking at him in the mirror. I felt this strange vibration so I turned to look at him. When I turned and looked at him both his eyes were burning. There was smoke coming out of his nostrils. I immediately turned away, but I kept thinking about that this was a man that I wanted to talk to. So I waited a little while longer and the train pulled out of the station. Then I turned to talk to him, heíd disappeared. I searched for him at the next town, but he was gone. (before SeÒor (Tales Of Yankee Power))
Thank you. There are three young ladies in the group who sing with me. Theyíre gonna sing a song now. They insist on singing it because they like it so much. (before Rainy Day Women #12 & 35)
Thank you. (Ö..) the day I was born, that day happens to be the high holy gypsy holiday. So I (Ö..) over there where they have their big celebration (Ö..). So (Ö..) I was fortunate enough to meet the king of the gypsies. The first day I was there I managed to meet him. He was a young man with 22 wives and 150 children, and girlfriends on the side too. (Ö..). This celebration lasted about a week. (I was there) the whole time, staying up for all of it. I did about everything twice. Finally it was time to go, (Ö..) I could just not stay up one more day (Ö..) I asked for one more cup of coffee for the road. So, they give it to me, black. (Ö..) down the road.
