Here's a simple love story. Happened to me. (before Simple Twist Of Fate).

Thank you. Thank you. Thanks, it's you're too kind. Ha, ha, here's Steve Douglas. What? John Wesley Harding? I wish we could stay here all year, but we can't. (before I Want You)

Thank you! I recorded that in 1963, yeah. This is another song from that year. I think I wrote this the day after that. (before Tomorrow Is A Long Time)

Thank you! I wanna introduce the orchestra to you tonight. Playing the tenor saxophone, flute, what else have you got? Mr. Steve Douglas! On the drums, a man who's played with just about everybody. We're very fortunate to have him tonight here with us, from Great Britain, Ian Wallace. Give him another hand he really deserves it! On the violin and the mandolin, David Mansfield. On rhythm guitar, Steve Soles. Who could ask for more? On the organ, Alan Pasqua. Lead guitar Billy Cross, yeah! Play something! See, he really does play! On the conga drums Bobbye Hall, she's from my home town. Bass guitar, Rob Stoner. These three young ladies we first met at a disc jockey convention. On the left my fiancée Helena Springs. On the right it's my ex-wife Debbie Dye. And in the middle a young woman who's going to go very far, Jo Ann Harris. You'll be hearing more from her. All right thank you very much! This is called It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding).

Thank you! Once again, it's that time of the hour, and we have to run. (before Forever Young)

Thank you, you’re so very kind! You really are. We’ll play you this song. I wrote this song also about fifteen years ago. It still means a lot to me. I know it means a lot to you too. (plays The Times They Are A-Changin’) Thank you. We'll be here for four more nights, maybe we'll meet you again.

Thank you. Wanna say hello to the Highway 61 Motorcycle Club. (after Mr. Tambourine Man)

Thank you. Here's a song I wrote a few years back, about a couple of friends of mine who disintegrated. <inaudible> back in the States of course. (before Simple Twist Of Fate)

Thank you. You're awfully kind and wonderful tonight. We have to introduce to some of these people. On the horns tonight, the tenor saxophone, flugelhorn, lots of different types of horns, Mr. Steve Douglas. Standing right next to him is a young man who gave up the profession of being a preacher to play in this band, playing the mandolin. He's a young man but he's full of talent. We're trying to show him around the world, Mr. David Mansfield. Standing next to him is a man who gave up the profession of being a racing car driver, from Bogotá, Colombia, on rhythm guitar Steve Soles. Playing the keyboards tonight, Alan Pasqua. Bass guitar, Rob Stoner. On the drums a young man who's playing in just about every group. You've probably seen him many times before, Mr. Ian Wallace. On background vocals tonight we have three young ladies. On the left is my next door neighbor, Helena Springs. On the right is a young woman with a great future ahead of her. She's going back after this tour to take over the Mormon Tabernacle choir, Miss Debbie Dye. And in the middle, this is my childhood sweetheart, I've been wanting to sing with her for years and years, Jo Ann Harris. On the conga drums, Bobbye Hall. Lead guitar, Billy Cross. Thank you very much we're gonna play this song. It's called It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding.

Thank you very much. You’ve been a very pleasant, kind audience tonight. We're gonna hit the road, we have to be in Bangkok to play, tomorrow, 6:30 breakfast show! (before Forever Young)

Thank you. Playing the conga drums tonight whom you met earlier, Bobbye Hall. On the keyboards, Alan Pasqua. Amazing! Playing the horns tonight, on tenor saxophone and flute, Steve Douglas. Standing next to him, a man who plays just about every instrument, David Mansfield. He plays the violin, and the mandolin and the guitar. Standing next to him is a man who gave up a career to be a doctor to join this band, on rhythm guitar Steven Soles. He fixes us all up. And on the bass guitar, Rob Stoner. On the background vocals for tonight we have three beautiful young ladies. The one on the right has got her own choir. She left that group to join this band,it was just a little too religious, Miss Debbie Dye. In the middle my childhood sweetheart, Jo Ann Harris. I've been wanting to introduce her for years. We should have got married. On the left is my current girlfriend, Helena Springs. We get along pretty well this tour. On the lead guitar for you tonight, Billy Cross. And on the drums from England, a man, a man who's played in just about every group, Mr. Ian Wallace. This one is called It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding.

Thank you! We'll come back here real soon. I hope we touched you. You sure touched us. (plays The Times They Are A-Changin') Thank you everybody, goodnight!
