At first I thought it was "We ain't married, she's my friend" as if he was trying to convince everyone that he wasn't in love with whoever the song was about.

I thought it was the same as Ivan...in fact I usually just hear it like that, because I actually think it makes the story a little better the "misheard" way.

"Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Said the wet-head by the sea, circled by the circus sands"

What makes me laugh about mishearing Dylan lyrics...is that despite how crazy of a mistake it is...it is Dylan, so anything can go.

Sorry if it's been posted before, but every time the line drifts by I grin.

As we are on the Shot of Love album, I had a very poor cassette copy back in the mid 80s before I found it on vinyl.

"there's a man who hates me: he sweats blood and beer"

My girlfriend hears "And the farting is strong" instead of "And the fighting is strong" in Ring Them Bells:

Oh the lines are long
And the fighting is strong
And they’re breaking down the distance
Between right and wrong

and your girlfriend's version makes sense too.

This one works best when you're more familiar with the German pronounciation.

I always hear:
She gave me herpes, advice and she said
Go home and lead a quiet life


instead of
She gave me her best advice and she said
Go home and lead a quiet life


(Red River Shore).

I was just listening to the Isle of Wight... I'm sure 'In She Belongs To Me' I heard "For Halloween buy her a crumpet!" :lol:

Am I the only who always read the lyrics while first listening to a song?

I do it too, always keep the lyrics in front of me when I listen to something new.
If they're available.

Until last week I always thought he sang

"we drove that cow as far as we could/
abadoned it out west"

on Tangled Up in Blue.

Boy, is my face blue. And tangled.

Thank you Mr Jones. Believe it or not, your post is the first time I realised it is NOT "A feudal horn". I had to go and look up the lyrics just to check. :roll: . On the plus side I always heard Dove (not duck :lol: :lol: )

One of the first Dylan songs I loved was "hurricane" and although i knew it was about Rubin Carter I always heard:

Rumour could take a man out with just one punch


instead of

Rubin could take a man out with just one punch

In You'll Go Your Way And I'll Go Mine, I still hear "I'm gonna lick your ass" instead of "... let you pass".
