BEYOND HERE LIES NOTHIN

well I love you pretty baby
you’re the only love I’ve never known
just as long as you stay with me
the whole world is my throne
beyond here lies nothin
nothin I could call my own

well I’m moving after midnight
down boulevards of broken cars
don’t known what I’d do without her
without this love that we call ours
beyond here lies nothin
nothin but the moon and stars

down every street there’s window
and every window made of glass
we keep on loving pretty baby
for as long as love would last
beyond here lies nothing’
but the mountains of the past

well my ship is in the harbour
and the sails are spread
listen to me, pretty baby
lay your hand upon my head
beyond here lies nothing
nothing done and nothing said


LIFE IS HARD

The evening winds are still/I've lost the way and will.
Can’t tell you where they went I just know what they meant
I’m always on my guard admitting life is hard
Without you near me

The friend you used to be, so near and dear to me
You slipped so far away, where did you go astray…
I pass the old school yard, admitting life is hard
without you near me

Ever since the day, the day you went away

I don’t know what wrong or right,
I just need strength to fight, strength to fight that world outside

Since we've been out of touch I haven't felt that much
From day to barren day My heart stays locked away
I walk the boulevard, admitting life is hard
without you near me.

The Sun is sinking low I guess it's time to go
I feel a chilly breeze In place of memories.
My dreams are locked and barred Admitting life is hard
without you near me

without you near me


MY WIFE’S HOME TOWN

Well I didn’t come here to deal with a
I just came here to hear …drop a
There ain’t no way you can put me down,
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town

Well there’s reasons for that, and reasons for this
I can’t think of it just now, but I know they exist
I’m sittin in the sun ‘till my skin turns brown
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town. Home town…

She can make you steal, Make you rob
Give you the hives, Make you lose your job
She can can make things bad She can make things worse
She got stuff more potent than a gypsie curse

One of these days I’ll end up on the run
I'm pretty sure she'll make me kill someone
I’m going inside, pull the shutters down
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town

Well there’s plenty to remember, and plenty to forget
I still can’t remember the way we met
I lost my reason a long time ago
My love for her is all I know

State gone broke, the county's dry
Don't be lookin' at me with that evil eye
Keep on walking, don’t hanging around
I’m tellin you again that hell’s my wife’s home town.

IF YOU EVER GO TO HOUSTON

If you ever go to Houston better walk right
keep your hands in your pockets and your gun-belts tied
If you’re asking for drama, if you’re looking for a fight
If you ever go to Houston, boy you better walk right

If you are ever down there Go back to your ma
You better watch out for the man with the shining star
Better know where you are going Or stay where you are
If you’re ever down there Go back to your ma
I know these streets I’ve been here before
I nearly got killed here During the Mexican War
Something always keeps me coming back for more
I know these streets, I’ve been here before.

If you ever go to Dallas, say hello to Mary-Ann
Say I’m still …along the trigger, hanging on the best I can
If you see her sister Lucy, say I’m sorry I’m not there
Tell her other sister Nancy to pray the sinner's prayer.

Better keep right forward, don’t spoil the game
The same way I’m leave here will be the way that I came

Mr policeman, can you help me find my gal
Last time I saw her was at the vagabond hotel
If you help me find her, you can be my pal
Mr policeman, can you help me find my gal

If you ever go to Carlston, onward from San Antone
Find the barrooms I got lost in And send my memories home
Put my tears in a bottle Screw the top on tight
If you ever go to Houston, you’d better walk right.


FORGETFUL HEART

Forgetful heart / Lost your power of recall /
Every little detail / You don’t remember at all /
The times we knew / Who would remember better than you?

Forgetful heart, we laughed and had a good time, you and I
It’s been so long, now you’re content to let the days go by
When you were there, you were the answer to my prayer.

Forgetful heart, we loved with all the love that life can give
What can I say? Without you it’s so hard to live
Can’t take much more Why can’t we love like we did before

Forgetful heart like a walking shadow in my brain
All night long/ I lay awake to the sound of pain/
The door has closed forevermore/If there ever really was a door

Down by the river Judge Simpson walking around / Nothing shocks me more than that old clown


JOLENE

Well it’s a long old highway that don’t ever end.
I’m packing a Saturday Night Special, I’m back again
I’ll sleep at your door, lay my life on the line
You probably don’t know I’m gonna make you mine
Jolene, Jolene, baby I am the King and you are the Queen

I keep my hands in my pocket, I’m movin’ along
People think they know, but they’re all wrong
You're something nice, I’m gonna grab my dice
I can’t say I had
Jolene, Jolene, baby I am the King and you are the Queen

Well I found out the hard way, I’ve had my fill
………………………………..............
Those big brown eyes, said I’m a spark
If you hold me in your arms, things don’t look so dark,
Jolene, Jolene, baby I am the King and you are the Queen



THIS DREAM OF YOU
How long can I stay in this nowhere café while night turns into day
I wonder why I’m so frightened and down
All I have and all I know / Is this dream of you / That keeps me moving on

There is a moment where all things become new again
But that moment might have come and gone
All I have and all I know / Is this dream of you / That keeps me moving on

I look away, but I’m not seeing it
I don't wanna believe / but I keep believing it
Shadows, dance upon the walls
Shadows that seem to know it all

Am I too blind to see? / Is my heart playing tricks on me?
I’m lost in the crowd, all my tears are gone
All I have and all I know / Is this dream of you / That keeps me moving on

Everything I touch seems to disappear
Everywhere I turn you are always here
I run this race until my…
I’ll …in this place with my dying breath

from ……..I saw a star from heaven fall
I turned and looked again but it was gone
All I have and all I know / Is this dream of you / That keeps me moving on

SHAKE SHAKE MAMA

I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
Come back here, we can have some real fun

Well it’s early in the evening and everything is still
Well it’s early in the evening and everything is still
One more time I’m walking up around the hill.

Shake shake Mama Shake like a ship going out to sea
Shake shake Mama Shake like a ship going out to sea
You took all my money and you gave it to …………

Down by the river judge Simpson’s walking around
Down by the river judge Simpson’s walking around
Nothing shocks me more than that old clown

Some of you women you really know your stuff
Some of you women you really know your stuff
But your clothes are all torn and your………………..

Shake shake Mama Shake until the break of day
Shake shake Mama Shake until the break of day
I’m right here baby I’m not that far away

I'm motherless fatherless Almost friendless too
I'm motherless fatherless Almost friendless too
………………………………...

Shake shake mama, raise your voice and pray/bray?
Shake shake mama, raise your voice and pray/bray?
If you're goin' on home/better go the shortest way

I FEEL A CHANGE COMIN’ ON

Well I’m looking the world over
Looking far off into the east
And I see my baby coming
She’s walking with the village priest

I feel a change coming on
And the last part of the day is already gone.

We’ve got so much in common
We strive for the same old ends
And I just can’t wait
Wait for us to become friends

I feel a change coming on
And the forth part of the day is already gone.

Well life is for love
And they say that love is blind
If you want to live easy
Baby pack your clothes with mine

I feel a change coming on
And the forth part of the day is already gone

Well now what’s the use in dreaming?
You got better things to do
Dreams never did work for me anyway
Even when thy did come true

You are as whorish as ever
Baby you can start a fire
I must be loosing my mind
You’re the object of my desire

I feel a change coming on
And the forth part of the day is already gone

I’m listening to Billie Joe Shaver
And I’m reading James Joyce
Some people they tell me
I’ve got the blood of the land in my voice

Everybody got all the money
Everybody got all the beautiful clothes
Everybody got all the flowers
I don’t have one single rose

I feel a change coming on
And the forth part of the day is already gone


IT’S ALL GOOD
Talk about me babe, if you must
Throw on the dust! Pile on the dust!
I’d do the same thing, if I could
You know what they say…It’s all good
All good, It’s all good

Big politicians telling lies
Restaurant kitchens, all full of flies
Don't make a bit of difference
Don‘t see why it should…it’s all right
cos’ it’s all good. It’s all good.

Wives are leaving their husbands, they’re beginning to roam
They leave the party, and they never get home
I wouldn’t change it, even if I could,
You know what they say man: It’s all good,
it’s all good, all good.


Brick by brick they tear you down
A teacup of water is enough to drown /
You oughta know if they could they would
Whatever goes down / It’s all good
All good, It’s all good

People in the country, people on the land
Some of ‘em so sick, they can hardly stand
Everybody would move away, if they could
It’s hard to believe, but it’s all good.
Yeaaaa!

The Widows cry, the orphans bleed/
Everywhere you look there’s more misery
Come away with me babe, I wish you would,
You’ve heard it said, It’s al good
All good, I said it’s all good, all good

There's a cold blooded killer stalking the town
Cops….something bad going down
Buildings are crumbling in the neighborhood /
but it's nothing to worry about, cause it's all good
It’s all good, all good ... whoo!

…………..I’ll blow it in your face
This time tomorrow I’ll be roaming in your place
I wouldn’t change a thing, even if I could
You know what they say, it’s all good
All good, O yea

Hadn't seen this until now. Here's my transcription of "This Dream of You" (we have some differences, don't know who's hearing correctly):

“This Dream of You”

How long can I stay
In this nowhere café ‘fore night turns into day
I wonder why I’m so frightened of dawn
All I have and all I know is this dream of you which keeps me living on

There’s a moment when
All old things become new again
But that moment might have come and gone
All I have and all I know is this dream of you which keeps me living on

I look away but I can see in it
I don’t want to believe but I keep believing it
Shadows dance upon the wall
Shadows that seem to know it all

Am I too blind to see
Is my heart playing tricks on me
I’m lost in the crowd, all my tears are gone
All I have and all I know is this dream of you which keeps me living on

Everything I touch seems to disappear
Everywhere I turn, you are always here
I’ll run this race until my earthly death
I’ll defend this place with my dying breath

From a chairless/cheerless room
In a curtain gloom, I saw a star from heaven fall
I turned and looked again but it was gone
All I have and all I know is this dream of you which keeps me living on

I haven't and won't listen till next week, but upon reading through the lyrics, "This Dream of You" seems to stand WAY out. That reads like an understated classic to me. I can't wait to hear the music.

"Dream" is clearly the album stand-out (which is why I transcribed it though I seem to recall reading that lyrics will be included with TTL, making it one of those rare studio releases, maybe only Empire Burlesque and Under the Red Sky share the honor though I could be forgetting one other album).

"Houston" might be the second best track, but I don't want to judge too early, Dylan has a way of sneaking up on you sometimes.

It really is a standout track, but I can imagine someone calling any song their favorite. Wait til you hear the music on this one, it's gorgeous.

I hear "keep seein' it". Nice job though, both of you.

BTW is this a great bridge or what? "Shadows that seem to know it all"? WOOT!

A couple additions to "Shake Shake Mama"

Some of you women you really know your stuff
Some of you women you really know your stuff
But your clothes are all torn and your language is a little too rough.

Wow, that is a big addition. Probably the most interesting and perplexing lyric on the album.

It is from Hamlet Act II, scene ii:

Who calls me villain? breaks my pate across?
Plucks off my beard and blows it in my face?
Tweaks me by the nose? gives me the lie i' the throat,
As deep as to the lungs? Who does me this? Ha!

>Last time I saw her was at the vagabond hotel

is definitely "Magnolia Hotel."

>If you ever go to Carlston, onward from San Antone

this is "If you ever go to Austin, Fort Worth or San Anton"

My take:
(thanks for your help - I excluded lyrics from other messages on this board)

LIFE IS HARD

The evening winds are still I've lost the way and will
Can’t tell you where they went I just know what they meant
I’m always on my guard admitting life is hard
Without you near me

The friend you used to be, so near and dear to me
You slipped so far away, where did we go astray
I passed the old school yard, admitting life is hard
Without you near me

Ever since the day, the day you went away
I felt that emptiness so wide
I don’t know what's wrong or right
I just know I need strength to fight, strength to fight that world

outside

Since we've been out of touch I haven't felt that much
From day to barren day my heart stays locked away
I walk the boulevard, admitting life is hard
Without you near me

The Sun is sinking low I guess it's time to go
I feel a chilly breeze In place of memories
My dreams are locked and barred admitting life is hard
Without you near me
hummmm
Without you near me


MY WIFE’S HOME TOWN

Well I didn’t come here to deal with a doggone thing
I just came here to hear the drop of cymbaline
There ain’t no way you can put me down
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town

Well there’s reasons for that, and reasons for this
I can’t think of any just now, but I know they exist
I’m sittin in the sun ‘till my skin turns brown
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town home town home town

She can make you steal, make you rob
Give you the hives, make you lose your job
Make things bad she can make things worse
She got stuff more potent than a gypsy curse

One of these days I’ll end up on the run
I'm pretty sure she'll make me kill someone
I’m going inside, roll the shutters down
I just wanna say that hell’s my wife’s home town

Well there’s plenty to remember, plenty to forget
I still can’t remember the day we met
I lost my reasons a long ago
My love for her is all I know

State gone broke, the county's dry
Don't be lookin' at me with that evil eye
Keep on walking, don’t be hanging around
I’m tellin you again that hell’s my wife’s home town home town home town


IF YOU EVER GO TO HOUSTON

If you ever go to Houston better walk right
Keep your hands in your pockets and your gun-belts tied
If you’re asking for drama, if you’re looking for a fight
If you ever go to Houston, boy you better walk right

If you're ever down there out back to your loving ma
You better watch out for the man with the shining star
Better know where you're going Or stay where you are
If you’re ever down there out back to your loving ma
Well I know these streets I’ve been here before
I nearly got killed here during the Mexican War
Something always keeps me coming back for more
I know these streets I’ve been here before

If you ever go to Dallas, say hello to Mary-Ann
Say I’m still looking along the trigger, hanging on the best I can
If you see her sister Lucy, say I’m sorry I’m not there
Tell her other sister Nancy to pray the sinner's prayer

I gotta rest this fever bury it in my brain
Better keep right forward, can’t spoil the game
The same way I’ll leave here will be the way that I came
Gotta rest this fever bury it in my brain

Mr policeman, can you help me find my gal
Last time I saw her was at the Magnolia Motel
If you help me find her, you can be my pal
Mr policeman, can you help me find my gal

If you ever go to Austin, Fort Worth or San Anton'
Find the barrooms I got lost in and send my memories home
Put my tears in a bottle screw the top on tight
If you ever go to Houston, buddy you’d better walk right


FORGETFUL HEART

Forgetful heart
Lost your power of recall
Every little detail
You don’t remember at all
The times we knew
Who would remember better than you

Forgetful heart
we laughed and had a good time, you and I
It’s been so long
now you’re content to let the days go by
When you were there
you were the answer to my prayer

Forgetful heart
we loved with all the love that life can give
What can I say
Without you it’s so hard to live
Can’t take much more
Why can’t we love like we did before

Forgetful heart
like a walking shadow in my brain
All night long
I lay awake and listen to the sound of pain
The door has closed forevermore
If indeed there ever was a door


JOLENE

Why It's coming down high street walking into Third
If it ain't a dead man's rise I die she's the one to me to me
Baby I am the king and you're the queen

Well it’s a long old highway that don’t ever end
I got a Saturday Night Special, I’m back again
I’ll sleep by your door, lay my life on the line
You probably don’t know but I’m gonna make you mine
Jolene, Jolene
Baby I am the King and you are the Queen

I keep my hands in my pocket, I’m movin’ along
People think they know, but they’re all wrong
You're something nice, I’m gonna bet my dice
I can’t say I ever paid the price
Jolene, Jolene
Baby I am the King and you is the Queen

Well I found out the hard way, I’ve had my fill
came by somebody with his luck too afield
Those big brown eyes, they set out for spark
If you hold me in your arms, things don’t look so dark
Jolene, Jolene
Baby I am the King and you're the Queen


SHAKE SHAKE MAMA

I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
I got the blues for you baby when I look up at the sun
Come back here, we can have some real fun

Well it’s early in the evening and everything is still
Well it’s early in the evening and everything is still
One more time I’m walking up around the hill

Shake shake Mama like a ship going out to sea
Shake shake Mama like a ship going out to sea
You took all my money and you gave it to Richard Lee

Down by the river judge Simpson’s walking around
Down by the river judge Simpson’s walking around
Nothing shocks me more than that old clown

Some of you women you really know your stuff
Some of you women you really know your stuff
But your clothes are all torn and your language is a little too rough

Shake shake Mama shake until the break of day
Shake shake Mama shake until the break of day
I’m right here baby I’m not that far away

I'm motherless fatherless almost friendless too
I'm motherless fatherless almost friendless too
It's Friday morning on Franklin Avenue

Shake shake mama, raise your voice and bay
Shake shake mama, raise your voice and bay
If you're goin' on home better go the shortest way


IT’S ALL GOOD

Talk about me babe, if you must
Throw on the dust, pile on the dust
I’d do the same thing if I could
You know what they say
They say it’s all good
All good, it’s all good

Big politicians telling lies
Restaurant kitchens, all full of flies
Don't make a bit of difference
Don‘t see why it should
But it’s all right
cos’ it’s all good, it’s all good, it’s all good

Wives are leaving their husbands, they’re beginning to roam
They leave the party, and they never get home
I wouldn’t change it, even if I could
You know what they say man
It’s all good, it’s all good, all good

Brick by brick they tear you down
A teacup of water is enough to drown
You oughta know if they could they would
Whatever going down
It’s all good
All good, it’s all good

People in the country, people on the land
Some of ‘em so sick, they can hardly stand
Everybody would move away, if they could
It’s hard to believe, but it’s all good
Yeaaaa!

The Widows cry, the orphans bleed
Everywhere you look there’s more misery
Come away with me babe, I wish you would
You know what I'm saying
It’s all good, all good,
I said it’s all good, all good

There's a cold blooded killer stalking the town
Cop cars blinkin', something bad going down
Buildings are crumbling in the neighborhood
but it's nothing to worry about, cause it's all good
It’s all good, I say it's all good whoo!

I'm gonna pluck off your beard and blow it in your face
This time tomorrow I’ll be roaming in your place
I wouldn’t change a thing, even if I could
You know what they say
They say it’s all good, it’s all good
O yeah

One slight correction to "Shake Shake Mama" from what is posted and what I originally posted.

It should be "It's Friday morning, going to Franklin Avenue."

Also...could it be "One more time I’m walkin' up on Heartbreak Hill" ???


It's odd that he would be going out on Friday morning. I googled some stuff and this might explain it:

SAINT PAUL CHAMBER ORCHESTRA 2007-2008—Friday morning Coffee Concerts, Series A finds members of this group enjoying the Fanfare before the concert and lunch following the concert at a lovely restaurant near Rice Park in downtown Saint Paul.

It's Minnesota I know, but would Bob still be in touch with what's going on there?

Erm, not to undercut your efforts, but you've completely mangled some of those lyrics, especially If You Ever Go to Houston.

IF YOU EVER GO TO HOUSTON

If you ever go to Houston, better walk right
Keep your hands in your pockets and your gun belt tight
You'll be asking for trouble if you’re looking for a fight
If you ever go to Houston, boy you better walk right

If you're ever down there, on back near Lamar
You better watch out for the man with the shining star
Better know where you're going, or stay where you are
If you’re ever down there, on back near Lamar
Well I know these streets, I’ve been here before
I nearly got killed here during the Mexican War
Something always keeps me coming back for more
I know these streets, I’ve been here before

If you ever go to Dallas, say hello to Mary Ann
Say I’m still looking along the trigger, hanging on the best I can
If you see her sister Lucy, say I’m sorry I’m not there
Tell her other sister Nancy to pray the sinner's prayer

I gotta restless fever burnin' in my brain
Gotta keep right forward, can’t spoil the game
The same way I’ll leave here will be the way that I came
Gotta restless fever burnin' in my brain

Mister policeman, can you help me find my gal?
Last time I saw her was at the Magnolia Motel
If you help me find her, you can be my pal
Mister policeman, can you help me find my gal?

If you ever go to Austin, Fort Worth or San Antone
Find the barrooms I got lost in and send my memories home
Put my tears in a bottle screw the top on tight
If you ever go to Houston, buddy you’d better walk right
