All right, on the bass guitar now, Jerry Scheff. On the keyboards, the one and only Alan Pasqua. All right, on lead guitar, the oldest member of this group, Billy Cross. All right. On the rhythm guitar, a man who doesn't speak very much English. From Bogota, Colombia, plays his heart out though. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Steven Soles. I’m sponsoring him in this country, ha ha ha. On the mandolin, the violin, a young man who's been with me now for five years. He's only 15 years old. Give him a warm hand. Dave…David Mansfield. And on the tenor saxophone, the phenomenal Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals tonight to help me out. On the right, Jo Ann Harris. In the middle Carolyn…Helena Springs. And Carolyn Dennis. And on the conga drums, from Detroit City, the most amazing Miss Bobbye Hall. This is called It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding.

All right, thank you. We gonna go. I wanna close with this song. Anyway, I wrote this a few years ago for one of my babies when he was a baby. He’s not here now, but I wanna sing it anyway. (plays Forever Young) Thank you very much. I hope we played something right. Thank you. Goodnight now. See you next time.

This is a love ballad I wrote a few years back, concerning three people in love, all at the same time. (before Tangled Up In Blue)

Thank you. That was Alan Pasqua on the organ. Steve Douglas on the tenor saxophone. This is an old song I wrote about fifteen years ago. It's one of the rare ones I wrote that means more now than it did when I wrote it. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

Thank you. That was California Rock (....). Anyway this is an updated version of an old tune called, I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm No more.

All right, this is a little tune I learned off a Bruce Springsteen record. (before Don't Think Twice, It's All Right)

Thank you, on the drums tonight, please give him a warm hand, Ian Wallace. On the bass guitar, Jerry Scheff. Right. On the keyboards, the one and only Alan Pasqua. Lead guitar is Billy Cross, the oldest member of this group. Billy's 42 years old. Right, on the rhythm guitar from Bogota, Colombia, a man who doesn't speak a word of English, but he does play his heart out anyway. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Steve Soles. On the violin and the mandolin, the youngest member of the group, only fifteen years old been with me five years. All right, David Mansfield. On the tenor saxophone, the phenomenal Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals tonight, three girls, they make me sound good every night. They cover up all my mistakes. I couldn't do without them. Ha ha! On the right is my ex-girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris. In the middle is my new girlfriend, Helena Springs. And on the end, that's my fiancée Carolyn Dennis. All right. Right, on the conga drums, can you hear the conga drums out there? On the conga drums from Detroit City, the most amazing Bobbye Hall. I don't think I left anybody out ? I hope we played a few things right tonight.

We gotta go. Anyway, here's a song I wrote for one of my babies when he was a baby. He's not here tonight, but I'm gonna play it anyway. So, we'll see you later, some other time, some place else. You've been a great crowd, remember that. All right, be safe on your journey home. (before Forever Young)

Thank you. That was called Ballad Of A Thin Man. Nowadays (…..) Ballad Of A Short Man. This is the song they booed for when I played at Newport Folk Festival back in 1963, I remember that they booed. That don’t concern me, I don’t care too much, I’m still playing it. I Ain’t Gonna Work On Maggie’s Farm No More.

All right, we’re gonna take a break right here, just a short time, to fix a flat on the bus. Then we’ll be right back. (before Baby Stop Crying)

Thank you. That was Masters Of War, that was Billy Cross on lead guitar.

Thank you. That was All Along The Watchtower. That was David Mansfield on the violin.

Ladies and gentlemen. All right. Time to introduce the players in this band. You're a great crowd, you really are. On the drums, from Kingston Jamaica, give him a warm hand, Ian Wallace. On the left on bass guitar, Jerry Scheff. On the keyboards, a man who plays his heart out, the one and only Alan Pasqua. On the lead guitar, the oldest member of this group, born in 1921. Ladies and gentlemen, Billy Cross. Billy’s been around. (…..). On the rhythm guitar, a man I found in Bogota, Colombia, driving a sports car. He's a great sports car racer in South America. We moved him up to the United States. Ladies and gentlemen, he doesn't speak a word of English, but he also plays his heart out. Steven Soles. On the mandolin and the violin, the youngest member of this group. He's been with me for five years, he's fifteen years old. And he is available, David Mansfield. On the tenor saxophone, the man who defined the tenor saxophone actually, the phenomenal Steve Douglas. All right. On the backup vocals tonight, three young ladies, they help me out every night. They make me sound so good. On the right my ex-girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris. Jo Ann and I have fallen out. I like to eat and she doesn’t like to cook. She isn't my girlfriend any more. (…..) in the middle, that's Helena Springs, my current girlfriend, and she (…..) to cook. And on the left my fiancée, Carolyn Dennis. All right, on the conga drums, from Detroit City, the most amazing Miss Bobbye Hall. Right, I'm Bob Dylan and this is called It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding.

All right, so we’re gonna go on down the road. I hope we played something right tonight. Thank you. This is a song I wrote for one of my babies when he was a baby. He’s not here tonight, but I wanna play it anyway. (before Forever Young)

Thank you. That was Alan Pasqua playing the organ, keyboards. That was Steve Douglas on the tenor saxophone. This is a song that means a great deal to me. I wrote it fifteen years ago. Means more to me now, than it did when I first wrote it. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)<
