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.
"Seven days, seven more days she'll be comin' I'll be waiting at the station for her to arrive Seven more days, all I gotta do is survive.
She been gone ever since I been a child Ever since I seen her smile, I ain't forgotten her eyes. She had a face that could outshine the sun in the skies.
I been good, I been good while I been waitin' Maybe guilty of hesitatin', I just been holdin' on Seven more days, all that'll be gone.
There's kissing in the valley, Thieving in the alley, Fighting every inch of the way. Trying to be tender With somebody I remember In a night that's always brighter than the day.
Seven days, seven more days that are connected Just like I expected, she'll be comin' forth, My beautiful comrade from the north."
"Seven Days," written in 1976 but never recorded in the studio. A live performance from that year was included on the 1991 release "The Bootleg Series Vols. I-III," and was revived several times by Dylan during the 1996 spring and summer tours. The song has also been covered by Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, who performs it here at Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert in 1992 (the anniversary being that of Dylan's first album).
