I mishear, "Leave at your own shows and speed," although this explains his second encore policy.

"Duck her then enter in the mine"

I could swear he says, "You ain't goin' nowhere now" in that song, too.

Wait. Wrong Dylan.

In the Critics Choice performance does he sing "New Orleans to new Jerusalem"? :?

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. Revelations 21:2


I believe it means the Kingdom of God set up on earth.

From "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" I always heard, "He understand your orphaned with his gun", rather than "Yonder stands your orphan with his gun."

Ah, okey, I've never read the bible so I didn't know. Thanks :wink:

The first time I listened to “Just like a Woman” I was apparently not listening very closely. After all, I thought Dylan sang,

“We married; she’s my friend” (instead of “Queen Mary, she’s my friend”…)

I remember thinking, “Aw, that’s so sweet that his wife is his best friend, too.” :roll:

Hurricane:

And so Patty calls the cops
And in a ribald scene with their red lights flashin’
In the hot New Jersey night

As opposed to the actual:

And so Patty calls the cops
And they arrive on the scene with their red lights flashin’
In the hot New Jersey night

Either seems legit.

"Lurid Wagon, Lurid Bike" jumps to mind as one of my misheard lyrics.

Also when I first heard My Wife's Home Town, when he sings "My love for her is all I know" i though he was singing "Motherf***ers all, I know!"

True story

Yeah, I never knew what he was saying there either. Was just checking out the lyrics for that song and noticed bobdylan.com says it is "like the way that you move your lips" but on the original album it is definitely "like the way that you move your hips". Hips is so much better. That line is actually one of my favorite images in a Dylan song...this beautiful woman walking away from me and the cool confident way she walks and her swaying hips are driving me absolutely mad. If I got paid to create webpages for Dylan songs I would at least be sure to get the lyrics right.

I just had to BUMP this thread because I can't help but hear "Naked penis came at night" in "In the Garden". It's actually "Nicodemus..."

Oh yeah, and "Changing of the Guards". The line "I've shined your shoes, I've moved your mountains and marked your cards"... I always hear it as "I've moved your mountains and light your farts".

I always heard it as "Even married, she's my friend" (nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more)

all your Indian armies (but I swear he does sing that in some version and it's much better)

last glimpse of the meal (kind of a last supper thing but he published Camille, maybe it was a better glimpse anyway)

Yes I'm sure I have a version somewhere than has "Indian armies".

From a poor quality tape of Shot of Love (before buying it on vinyl) "There's a mans who hates me; he sweats blood and fear".

Standing in the Doorway:

"And even if the flashbulbs are for my face,"
"I know someone will be there to care"

This line blew me away. Inside a great song was this unbelievable insight into the loneliness and pain endured by a life in the spotlight -- and a great hope that even if he's tortured and humiliated and laid bare by the flashing bulbs, SOMEONE will be there to care for him, to give him shelter from the pain of fame. Wow.

How does he write such brilliant lines?

Well, in this case, he didn't. The line is, "And even if the flesh falls off my face, I know someone will be there to care."

Oh. Makes more sense. But It's a lot less interesting, I must say, than "my" line, the one I "wrote" by simply mishearing Dylan. So I wonder... does my compliment still stand? And if so, who is it for? Is it for Dylan, who didn't write what I thought was so wonderful, or, lamely, for myself? We may never know.

I do, however, think the mistaken line is better than the original, and if Dylan can update "fuse" in the lyrics books when he clearly says "food" on Tombstone Blues, then I think he can do the reverse here and update this, if only to give my boring story more legs.
