- Thank you. All right, thank you. This next song is about the story of my
life, just about. (before Shelter From The Storm)
- [recording breaks here] back then. Now itíd probably cost about eleven
bucks, but back then it was cheaper, you know. Anyway, I used to know this
one particular geek. Not very well, I never did get too tight with him.
But I was having breakfast one day with a lady with a beard. I swear she
had a beard. Anyway, she said, this (…..) geek he’s the low-downiest man
in this show. But just to give you an idea of how strange he really is,
he thinks of everybody else as being freaks. He thinks he’s very straight.
Anyway, years later I remember that story when I started moving around a
bit and people started looking at me in a funny way. So, somewhere along
the line I wrote this song. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
- Thank you. This is the song here that got me booed out of the
Newport Folk Festival, 1963. I never would believe that a song could
cause so much disturbance, but it did. (before Maggie’s Farm)
- I was riding on a train one time deep in the heart of Mexico.
A place called Durango, up to San Diego. Anyway, the train was passing a
town called Monterey. Anyway, I’d fallen asleep before that, I was waking
up when the train was pulling into the station and stopped.
And I was gazing into the window which was like a long mirror, you know.
And I saw this family of about fifteen children get off the train.
And this old man step on up to the platform to get on the train.
He was wearing nothing but a blanket and he come down the aisle and took
a seat across the aisle from me. About … I don’t know how long a time
that went by, but finally I couldnít help it, I had to turn to look at him.
And when I turned to look at him I swear both his eyes were on fire,
they were so hot, burning up. And there was smoke coming out of his
nostrils. I turned around and glanced back into the mirror. I turned to
look at him again, I figured that this was the man that I wanted to talk to.
When I finally could get it together I turned around and he had disappeared.
(before SeÒor (Tales Of Yankee Power))
- A few years ago I was over in the South of France where the gypsies have
their high holy day. Kind of like Christmas to them.
Anyway, they have … the High Holy Day that the gypsies do celebrate just
happens to be the particular day I was born. So I went over there to
check out what they were up to. So I did get over there and I did manage
to meet the king of the gypsies. A young man who impressed me a great deal.
He … this man had 16 wives and 125 children, I swear.
He also had girlfriends on the side. He was the sole commander in chief
of all the gypsies. Anyway, they just partied for a week [recording breaks
here] so I was there with them [recording breaks here] one more cup of
coffee for the road. Black. They put it in a bag and they give it to me.
And I drifted away.
