Pledging My Time (October 1987)

That's the end of my story
That's the end of my tale
I'm gonna get lucky, baby
I'd spend the night in jail
I'm spending my time to you
Hopin’ you’ll come through, too

8 October 1987, Brussels, Belgium

In 1987 there were two other performances of Pledging My Time. The first one, in September, relied on the standard lyrics. The other performance (October 10) does repeat the "spend the night in jail" line, but the lines which surround it are partially formed and hard to decipher.

This lyric variation is loosely based on the final verse of the original version released in 1966 on the Blonde on Blonde album:

Well, they sent for the ambulance
And one was sent
Somebody got lucky
But it was an accident
Now I’m pledging my time to you
Hopin’ you’ll come through, too
