Bob Talk

Alright, thank you. There's a slow train coming. Ain't nobobody know the right time. I've waited on for about a year now. (before Slow Train)

This train ... I wanna be on board of the train. I know my drummer does too! (after Slow Train)

We have Mona Lisa going to sing a song called God Uses Ordinary people. (before Ordinary people)

Mona Lisa Young: Thank you, Jesus. (after God Uses Ordinary People)

You know the enemy is powerful. But God is more powerful. Once I didn't have Jesus within me I didn't know I had an enemy. But you can't be victorious unless you do have an enemy. And as this present world we know is coming to a close, you need something strong to hang on to, like a solid rock. Lots of people don't understand that. Sometimes I think maybe even God's people are not supposed to understand that, I just don't know. But we'll pray for them anyway. Because God is calling His people back. (before Solid Rock)

You know the deity of Jesus just drives people crazy sometimes. Some people love him and they want to throw you roses. You can only step in front of the stage and you wouldn't believe it! Some people hate Jesus and they throw toilet rolls at us. Jesus separates all people. The Bible says if any man should preach you another gospel, other than that, that can be your cursed. Those are strong words. Thank you, ma'm! After all Jesus can save you too. Jesus is the lamb of God

We have time for one more hymn, we're gonna play this song called In the Garden. [audience: We still dig you, Bob!] Well, I know I have a fond a remembrance of the old too, you know. The old has passed away. All things are become new. If you wanna be old, don't be older than time. (before In the Garden)

On keyboards tonight, Spooner Oldham. On the drums, Jim Keltner. On the lead guitar tonight, Fred Tackett. Playing on the other set of keyboards, Terry Young. On the bass guitar, Mr. Tim Drummond. On the left, the girl in the red sparkling dress, Regina McCrary. On the right next to her is Mona Lisa Young. In the purple sparkling dress is Regina Peeples. The other girl in the black dress is Carolyn Dennis. Remember now when the Titanic went down, there was only two kinds of people, the lost people, and the saved people. (before Blessed Be the Name)

BobTalk

I was talking with someone last night who travels around and said, ... she was riding in a cab once and, ... it was in a big city. Cab driver turned around in the cab and said, "Did you hear Bob Dylan's a Christian now?" And this girl said. "Oh, I think I have heard that. How does that relate to you? Are you a Christian?" And the driver said, "No, but I been following Bob now for a long time." And the lady said, "Well, what you think of his new thing?" And he said, "Well, I think they're real good, but I tell you I think that if I could meet that person who brought Bob Dylan to the Lord I think I might become a Christian too." And this here song, this is all about that certain person. (before Precious Angel)

For those of you who have never read the book of Revelations. Every time you see that word in the newspapers or hear it, called Unilateral, watch out! (before Slow Train)

Thank you. All right I want to introduce a girl now I'll say's been with me now oh, year and a half, two years. Carolyn Dennis. She's gonna come out here and sing a song all by herself called, Walking Around Heaven All Day.

[someone in the audience: Bullshit!!] Bullshit? [loud heckling] Some of those people out there don't like the Lord? Don't know the Lord? What is it? Don't you like the Lord or don't you know the Lord? Which one of those is it? [loud heckling; someone shouts: I don’t care!] You don't care? Don't care?? I know you don't care. I didn't use to. (before Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking)

On the keyboards tonight, make him feel welcome, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards, Mr. Terry Young. Thank you. Is Jesus Lord? Say Jesus is Lord. On the drums tonight, give him a warm hand, Jim Keltner. Well, time is short you know. When Jesus died it was not the end, it was the beginning of the end. And we're right upon it now, you know we are. We're living on borrowed time. One of the first people to tell you that would be our friend on bass guitar, Mr. Tim Drummond. On lead guitar, Fred Tackett. Girl in the red dress, ... this is Regina McCreary. This young lady sang for you before, Miss Carolyn Dennis. This is Regina Peeples. That's Mona Lisa Young. (before Blessed Be The name)

Thank you. All trees in the forest one day were looking for a king. All the tress of the forest they’re looking for a king. So they went to the oak tree, they said “Will you be the king? The king over us?” The oak tree said, “No”. [someone in the audience: I DON'T KNOW!!!] Say you don't wanna ruin my script for me here?, said “I don’t wanna leave my (…..) flower here.” So they said, “All right.”. So they went to the…I guess they went to the fig tree. Fig tree said, “No, I don’t want to leave all this sweetness behind.” And I guess they went to a bunch of other different tress. They all said , “No.” They went to the bramble bush and said, “Will you be king over us?” The bramble bush said, “Sure.” [audience: YEAH!] Bramble bush ain’t good for nothing but burning!” (after Precious Angel)

Thank you. I want you to ask yourself before (…..).

Thank you. I want you to ask yourself before I go ... Shall I move along? [audience: GET OUT, BOBBY, GET OUT!]  Drop this one in? I was just gonna tell you what's happening between me and my mind.  (before Solid Rock)
