We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Our conversation was short and sweet It nearly swept me off-a my feet. And I'm back in the rain, And you are on dry land. You made it there somehow You're a big girl now.
Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence, He's singin' his song for me at his own expense. And I'm just like that bird, Singin' just for you. I hope that you can hear, Hear me singin' through these tears.
Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last. I can change, I swear, See what you can do. I can make it through, You can make it too.
Love is so simple, to quote a phrase, You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days. Oh, I know where I can find you, In somebody's room. It's a price I have to pay You're a big girl all the way.
A change in the weather is known to be extreme But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream? I'm going out of my mind, With a pain that stops and starts Like a corkscrew to my heart Ever since we've been apart."
"You're a Big Girl Now," a song that needs little introduction, from none other than Blood On The Tracks. A performance from April 1997 is below, from a show just three days before the one The Dylanologist, tender of years, witnessed in Wayne, NJ along with Bird Dog.
you are both wrong. best album, best song on album.
dylanologist has previously pointed out his skepticism towards labels such as "best" and "favorite." i may have to agree with him on this as far as dylan goes. if i had to vote though, that's how i cast my ballot. but my favorite color is green, and my favorite breed of dog is the german shepard. this i know.
