You're A Big Girl Now (27 April 2002)

Time is a jet plane, and it moves so fast
Oh, but what a shame all we’ve shared can’t last
I can change, I swear
See what you can do
I don't need to be blue
For me or to you

The original version from the Blood On The Tracks album:

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame if all we’ve shared can’t last
I can change, I swear, oh, oh
See what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too

You're A Big Girl Now (7 October 2002)

Okay, so maybe The Stylistics didn't quite sing Dylan's original but on this night neither did Dylan; for at least a line or two.

Now if you can decipher exactly what he's singing in the final line please share in the Comments section.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You’ve known it all the time, I’m learnin’ it these days
I know where I can find you
In somebody’s care
But I ain't gonna look there
You’re a big girl, (hold/go and) share

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You’ve known it all the time, I’m learnin’ it these days
Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh
In somebody’s room
It’s a price I have to pay
You’re a big girl all the way

You're A Big Girl Now (10 May 2002)

This is typically not a song which receives a lyric change treatment. However, in 2002 there were a few small updates, like this humorous one. This verse was also sung this way on April 27, 2002 in Oberhausen, Germany, accompanied by another little update.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
I've known it all the time, I’m learnin’ it these days
But I know where I can find you
Yes, but I ain't ever gonna look
I'm gonna put my order in with the cook
And hang my coat up on a hook
