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.
"If your memory serves you well, We were goin' to meet again and wait, So I'm goin' to unpack all my things And sit before it gets too late. No man alive will come to you With another tale to tell, But you know that we shall meet again If your memory serves you well. This wheel's on fire, Rolling down the road, Best notify my next of kin, This wheel shall explode!
If your memory serves you well, I was goin' to confiscate your lace, And wrap it up in a sailor's knot And hide it in your case. If I knew for sure that it was yours But it was oh so hard to tell. But you knew that we would meet again, If your memory serves you well. This wheel's on fire, Rolling down the road, Best notify my next of kin, This wheel shall explode!
If your memory serves you well, You'll remember you're the one That called on me to call on them To get you your favors done. And after ev'ry plan had failed And there was nothing more to tell, You knew that we would meet again, If your memory served you well. This wheel's on fire, Rolling down the road, Best notify my next of kin, This wheel shall explode!
The Bands version is great as usual. Dylans version looks like they just took a shot of morphine before playing. Going through the motions, uninspiring. Dylan wrote this song, but its really a Band song.
True enough, but remember that The Band's performance is from 1970, while Dylan's is from 1998. As good as Dylan's live act was at that time, I'm sure even he wouldn't harbor any hopes of topping The Band during the height of their powers.
