To be alone with you
Just you and me
Now won't you tell me true
Ain't that the way it oughta be
To hold each other tight
The whole night through
Everything is always right
When I'm alone with you

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
With only you in view
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
That while life's pleasures be few
The only one I know
Is when I'm alone with you

They say that nighttime is the right time
To be with the one you love
Too many thoughts get in the way in the day
But you're always what I'm thinkin' of
I wish the night were here
Bringin' me all of your charms
When only you are near
To hold me in your arms

I'll always thank the Lord
When my working day's through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you


I always loved this sweet little ditty! I love how it starts with Bob Johnson's 'Is it rolling Bob?', a comment left in to make everyone feel more at ease...
Nashville Skyline is such a backyard album:)
It's really the first song people heard from the new Bob post-crash and it must have been a shock at the time, but now it's from my favorite period of Dylan's career and such a beautiful love song, reminding me a lot of 'On A Night Like This', another of my favorites from the time...

Live, this thing got its debut in Philly 1989.
It's a song Bob has used to great effect as the opener of the show. Its a great rock'n'roll rave-up.
My favorite time being one of the nights at the Beacon in NYC back in 2005, one of the last times he performed this one.
It starts shaky but by the second verse Bob and the band have quickly picked up speed and they're crackling.
By the time Bob's up to speed and digging in, you can hear the boys revving up, Donnie in particular plays a rare fiddle solo that is extraordinary and
then Bob pulls out the harp for a couple verses of solo that stab at the song like a knife.

I like this version from April 25, 2001 (Cape Girardeau, Missouri) with a lot of violin

And here's a punkier version from Troy, NY Feb 22, 1999 that I believe was posted on BD.com back when they used to do that

I always thought it was Dylan saying "Is it rolling, Bob" to Johnston? Have I been wrong this whole time?

A great little ditty.
Have had the pleasure of seeing this
numerous times. Even as an opener.
Love it.

I always thought it was Dylan saying it to Johnstone, too. Great little tune.

Wouldn't the first song heard post-crash have been "John Wesley Harding"?

It is Bob Dylan saying 'is it rolling bob?' to Bob Johnston. Meaning is the tape rolling

^ That's exactly what is meant. Also, Bob Johnson's voice sounds nothing like that. Anyone who's watched Scorsese's NDH ought to know Johnson's voice and accent.
