Perhaps it’s the color of the sun cut flat
An’ cov’rin’ the crossroads I’m standing at
Or maybe it’s the weather or something like that
But mama, you been on my mind

I don’t mean trouble, please don’t put me down or get upset
I am not pleadin’ or sayin’, “I can’t forget”
I do not walk the floor bowed down an’ bent, but yet
Mama, you been on my mind

Even though my mind is hazy an’ my thoughts they might be narrow
Where you been don’t bother me nor bring me down in sorrow
It don’t even matter to me where you’re wakin’ up tomorrow
But mama, you’re just on my mind

I am not askin’ you to say words like “yes” or “no”
Please understand me, I got no place for you t’ go
I’m just breathin’ to myself, pretendin’ not that I don’t know
Mama, you been on my mind

When you wake up in the mornin’, baby, look inside your mirror
You know I won’t be next to you, you know I won’t be near
I’d just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on his mind

Thank you for the links. I would also recommend the performance at 1992-11-01 Wilkes-Barre. My favorite so far (am writing this before listening to Denver 88)

Good call on 92 version. That tour in particular had some fantastic acoustic sets. (end of oct-early nov shows) The outings that "Mama" got were all rather spectacularly done. I recall "Hollis" also standing out big time.

Keep listening kids.

Love the RTR versions. A lot the NET versions, specifically in the early 2000's, were completely ravaged by upsinging. This song was really conducive to it and it kinda soured me on the song.

While Wilkes-Barre 92 remains my favorite after I have listened to both of them :P , I like the Denver 88 rendition a lot too. Thank you for introducing it to me :)

I think that Denver sounds more 'passionate', while Wilkes-Barre is introspective and sincere, as if he really was having somebody in his mind and meant every single word that he was singing.

@NEP: thank you I will check out Saratosa

Edit: here's the link for Saratosa if anyone else would like to check it out:

It should've been on Another Side of Bob Dylan.

Then there would have been 3 great songs instead of 2:

To Ramona
It Ain't Me Babe
Mama, You Been on My Mind

(of course, "Chimes..." and "My Back Pages" are good, too)

I love Portsmouth 2000 but for my money, the late Anaheim show has the most brilliant Mama
of the year.
Bob's focused singing, the sparse nature of the band's backup, and then Bob's terrific
harp solo give this one the edge for me.

I am partial to the 92 W-B tape. It was one of my first bootlegged shows that I traded off Prodigy or GEnie. I even used FidoNet a few times but it was on its last leg.

The 91-92 shows were all really very interesting. Tempo, harmonica, one offs, unique arrangements and the acoustic sets with GE smith (i know plenty hate the guy but he understood bobs timing and kept up up with him) made for one of the most enjoyable sets imo, even though Bobs voice had hit rock bottom

I always like to think that some day hell add the acoustic sets back with Charlie and show off his chops again but I am dreaming. When Neil went on a solo acoustic tour back in the 90s an interviewer asked his Bobness if that has any influence on him. But I think in the end Bob enjoys his band too much which affords him the right to kick back, relax and feel comfortable all while ever so slightly showing off his plink plonking skills at the piano now and then.

G.E Smith was gone by October 1990 wasn't he? If it was the acoustic sets of 91/92
i think John Jackson and Cesar Diaz would've been around for some 1991 sets, and
1992 would be Jackson and Bucky Baxter (i think i could be wrong) but i'm pretty
sure G.E Smith was out the band by October 1990, if anyone knows exact dates on
that i'd like to know.

The acoustic sets of 1988 were really good like you say, with G.E Smith
in his first year. Bobs voice in '88 hadn't completely lost it's range, in-fact
even some 1989 shows listening back his voice holds up pretty well.
For some weird reason he got that helium sound around late 90 early 91
back, i say back cos when i heard any shows from 91/93 (the latter especially)
his voice sounds like the vocal from the Empire Burlesque album but with
a sore throat. Well, to me anyway. But as for 1988, his voice although it
had the beginning of that rasp, was still capable of some lovely singing,
''Wagoners Lad'' was done wonderfully on a few shows.

All of those mentioned above are terrific. My favorite is from Brussels in 1998. Beautiful, fragile vocals.

Rod Stewart's version is great. I actually prefer it to Bob's, which is very unusual for me.

I've never understood that "sun cut flat and covering" first line, though.

^interesting two lines... maybe it refers to the horizon line? Or the setting sun?
