Visions of Bob




You started on burgundy before you turned New York blue
While you were crawling right up cold Lake Avenue .
With Ramona and Mr. Jones here in Duluth .
Where the chilly winds blow , up near the borderline
And the wheel still spins , a blowing in achangin’
time .
If it’s alright with Ma , we’ll just keep on tryin ’.

Through you, we rowed every ocean, with Spanish boots on our feet .
To new worlds with Captain Arab , Johanna’s vision when we speak .

When a blueeyed
sun expects a hard rain to fall .
When the hour is late and the wildcat did howl .
When there's one judge to serve , when the autumn leaves fall .
Harmonica Solo (Bb)

When the train has carried every word from the back of your memories .
Both the good and the bad , defined by a master thief ,
Who stole the Jack from the Joker , who was just looking for a place to eat

Every day, something’s going to be different .
We all know its been a long hard mysterious climb
It's all tangled up in your masterpiece of crime .
You wrote everything we need, you’re an artist, you don’t look back.
