Tangled Up In Blue (27 July 2013)

Tonight the Tangled Up In Blue characters have evolved into truckers, not just truck drivers' wives. How much you like the rest of the lyric changes...depends on your point of view.

...Splittin' up on a dark sad night
Somewhere in the wilderness
He turned around to look at her
As she was walkin’ away
Sayin' over my shoulder
“We’re gonna meet again someday, truckin' down the avenue”
Tangled up in blue

Well, she lit a burner on the stove
And then she swept away the dust
“I thought you looked like someone that I used to know,
You look like someone that I can trust"
Then she opened up a book of poems
And then she said, "Just so you'll know
Memorize these lines, and remember these rhymes
When you're out there walkin' to and fro"
And every one of them words rang true
Glowed like burnin’ coal
Pouring off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you
Tangled up in blue


Now I’m goin’ back again
I've got to get to them somehow
Yesterday it is gone
And tomorrow might as well be now
Some are up on the mountain
And some of them they're down on the ground
Some of their names - written in flames
And some of them they just left town
Me, I’m still on the road
And I'm tryin' to stay out of the joint
Well, we always felt the same
Depending on your point of view
Tangled up in blue

  1. Anyway to get that whole show (Bob only)? I was there - one of few Amarama shows I could get to. Are you on Soundcloud? Tweet to bobcat4evah Thx

  2. I have found a bootleg for Ahoy Rotterdam 1984
    Tangled Up In Blue is almost a completely new song...can I find a transcription of it somewhere ?

  3. Is it "yesterday it is gone?" or "yesterday just hasn`t gone"?
