-Remember those carnivals we used to have all over (…..)?
They always used to have what they called a geek in there. (…..) what a geek is?
Itís a man who eats a live chicken.
Bites the head off and eats that, then eats the rest of it.
Sweeps all the feathers up with a broom.
Anyway, in those days it cost about a quarter to see him, nowadays it might be
about 10 to 15 bucks, but back then you could see him for a quarter.
So anyway, at the carnival nobody much hung out with him., the geek.
People sort of tended to avoid him. And I was speaking one day at breakfast with the
bearded lady, sheís telling me that the geek was lower than low down. (…..), but
this time he was low down, he didnít talk to nobody.
And to give you an idea of how unusual he really was, she says he thought of everybody
else as being quite freaky. (…..). And later on when I was out making my rounds, years
later, that thought came back to me once in a while, when people would start looking
at me in a strange way. So, I wrote this tune. Somebody had to write it. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
-Thank you. In 1963 I was invited to play at the Newport Folk Festival.
Anyway, I went up there and I played this song and they kicked me out of town for doing it.
Caused a big commotion. Itís hard to believe that a song could make people feel that way,
but it did. Itís called I Ainít Gonna Work On Maggieís Farm No More.
-Thank you. Thank you. I was riding on a train one time from Durango, Mexico, to
San Diego and the train was pulling into a station in a town called Monterey.
Iíd fallen asleep earlier in the day and I woke up about midnight.
And, a family of about 15 was getting off the train.
An old man was stepping up to the platform onto the train.
This old man wore nothing but a blanket. I thought he must have been about 150 years old.
Anyway, I was dozing off looking into the window of the train, which was like a long
mirror, you know. It was like – looking out onto these people was like looking in a mirror.
Anyway, I was looking out of this mirror and I saw this man come up the aisle and take a
seat across the aisle from me. And he just sat there. After a certain period of time I
couldnít help myself, I turned to look would he would look like.
When I looked at him both his eyes were on fire and there was smoke coming out of his
nostrils. I knew this was the man I had wanted to talk to. (before SeÒor /Tales Of Yankee Power))
-Thank you. We got three girls now that are gonna sing a song that I wrote.
They insist on singing it, they said – You canít sing this song anymore.
We wanna sing it -. I said – All right -. Weíre gonna try it tonight. (before Rainy Day Women #12 & 35)
-On the particular day that I was born on, my birthday (…..), it happen to be a high
holy gypsy holiday. This is true. And Iíve heard about this for years and one year decided
to go check it out. So I went over to the south of France where all the gypsies get
together every year in May. And they have a good celebration, itís like Christmas time.
(…..) check it out and I managed to meet the king of the gypsies.
A young man with – ha ha – I swear he had 22 wives and 135 kids, and girlfriends on the
side. But Iíll tell you something, he was a powerful man and Iíve seen in my time,
Iíve seen a lot of people with power who donít deserve it and a lot of people who do
deserve it but donít have it. And of all the people I have seen with it, this man did
deserve it. No question about that. Anyway, I stayed with them for a week and did what
they did, did about everything twice. Iíve stayed awake for that week too.
So when it was time to go and – theyíre gonna offer me something for the road.
So I just needed something to take with me so Iíd make it just one more day,
so I just asked for “one more cup of coffee” for the road.
And they gave it to me black. (…..) and headed out.
-Thank you. Weíd like to do a song from the new album called Street-Legal.
This was a single. I know it sold about 100 copies. Anyway, I think it just sold 25,
but I guess that we can play it anyway. (before Where Are You Tonight (journey Through Dark Heat))
-Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, on the drum tonight, give him a warm hand, from Kingston,
Jamaica, Ian Wallace. On the bass guitar, Jerry Scheff.
On the keyboards, also from Kingston, Jamaica, Mr. Alan Pasqua.
On the lead guitar, Billy Cross. All right, the youngest member of this group,
fifteen years old, been with me now for five years. Doesnít smoke dope, drink whiskey,
chase women. All thatís gonna change tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, plays the violin,
mandolin, (…..), David Mansfield. All right. On the rhythm guitar, a man with great
renown, from Bogota, Colombia. One of the great fathers of punk music.
Also a racing car driver, (…..). Ladies and gentlemen, Steve Soles.
On the tenor saxophone, a young man whoís (…..). A legend in his own lifetime.
Played on many amazing things. Anyway, youíve hear him all night, you know heís phenomenal,
Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals tonight. I donít know what Iíll do with these girls
anymore. (…..). I know I donít have the greatest voice in the world, but they make it
sound just a little bit better. Anyway, on the right, my ex-girlfriend, Helena Springs.
In the middle, my current girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris. And on the other side, now the
sweetheart of my life, my fiancÈe, Carolyn Dennis. On the conga drums, from Detroit,
Miss Bobbye Hall. I wanna thank you for coming. Weíll be back here real soon.
Iím not ready to be put out to pasture yet, so we may be back. (before Iís Alright, Ma (Iím Only Bleeding))
