BobTalk

Thank you. Toronto’s a beautiful city. I’d like to say hello to a friend of mine, Gordon Lightfoot, one of my favorite songwriters. (…..). Ain’t gonna go to hell for anybody. I know Gordon feels that same way too. Anyway, (…..) pressure, Gordon Lightfoot. Been a long time. Right, Gordon? This thing here is called Cover Down, Break Through. If you’d ever want to cover down. (after Ain’t Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody)

That’s the first time we’ve ever played that. I hope we didn’t (…..). (after Cover Down, Break Through)

[Shouts from the audience: “Hurricane!”, “Judas!”, “If Dogs Run Free!”] (after Precious Angel)

It’s far too late for this world. You better (…..) for the next one. All right. You get a lot of criticism not for seeing what you believe, you really do. [Voice from the audience: “I don’t believe you!”] That’s all right, I wanted to say it anyway. I (…..) friends to lose as it is, so (…..). (before Slow Train)

Thank you, thank you. Some of the girls been with me for a while, made my records with me, some are new. Gonna bring out a girl (…..) for a while. Gonna sing a song she wrote. Regina McCrary. (…..). (after Slow Train)

Thank you. Anybody know what time it is? Anybody know what time? [Voice from the audience: “8 o’clock!”] I saw the newspaper last night that The Who were playing in, I think it was Vancouver last night. Peter Townshend he apologized to all the fans, he said to them “we'll never leave you alone again.” You just think about that for a minute. There is one who will never leave you alone, I just don't think that it's Peter. He he. (before Saved)

We don’t have time for one more. [Someone in the band: “We have time for one more.”] The man says we can play one more. [Voice from the audience: “One more hour!”] Gordon, I want to see you after the show. Ha ha. Always have a good time here in Toronto, beautiful city. Trying to revive itself. (before In The Garden)

I wanna give you…you should give a hand to this fine supporting group up here. They travel with me everywhere I go. I know you're gonna read in the newspapers tomorrow that everybody walked out. You tell them the truth now. On the keyboards tonight, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards, Terry Young. On the drums, Jim Keltner. Lead guitar, Fred Tackett. Playing bass guitar tonight, Tim Drummond. On the far left, your right, a young lady who's a legend in her own time, Miss Clydie King. Standing next to her is Mary Elizabeth Bridges. All right. Mona Lisa Young. Standing next to her is Gwen Evans. You didn't hear her sing tonight, maybe you will tomorrow night. And standing next to her of course, you met this young lady earlier, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

BobTalk

Well, I'm very happy to say we have Ronnie Hawkins here tonight. Yeah. I don't know where he is, I know he's here somewhere. Ronnie and I go back a long ways, in fact Ronnie's, I hear he's gonna be doing movies now, I think. Was it a movie a year now? Is that right, Ronnie? Well, remember, you know, actually I gave Ronnie his first part in the movies. That's right. Ronnie was in a little movie we made called, Renaldo and Clara. About…a few years back and Ronnie played the part of Bob Dylan. Interesting movie. Anyway, I guess there's no place to go but up now, hey Ron? (before When He Returns)

Thank you. Cover down, break through. I wish somebody told me that when I was coming up. (after Cover Down, Break Through)

Thank you. I’m gonna introduce a couple of young ladies to you. Mona Lisa Young and Mary Bridges are gonna sing two songs. Mona Lisa’s gonna sing a song called There’s A Stranger In The City Healing.

[Voice from the audience: “Who wrote that one, Bob?”] (Off microphone to the band) Who wrote that? I don’t have any idea. (after Walking Around Heaven All Day)

Man asked me on the street today, he said, “Well, if you believe all those things,” he said, “I just can't seem to love my enemy.” That's a tough thing to do, you know? That's an impossible thing to do actually. Cause the natural mind, you know, can't comprehend that. So if you’re in the natural mind you just can't comprehend loving your enemy. That seems like a foolish thing to do, and it is. However, the supernatural mind can comprehend that. So when Jesus says “love thy neighbor as thyself,” he wasn't exactly saying “roll over and play dead.” Actually, I wanna tell you a story here. We were playing in…about four months ago someplace, it was a college campus, I forget exactly where, Arizona, I think it was. Is that where it was? Where you there? All right. Anyway, I read the Bible a lot, you know, I mean it just happens I do and…So it says certain things in the Bible that I wasn't really aware of until just recently. And, you know, at universities, you know, it's like…they have a higher learning people there. They teach them different…like philosophies, so people they study all these different philosophies like Plato and who else now? Who? Jimmy Reed. Well, I can't remember all their names. Nietzsche and those people like that. Anyway, in the Bible it has specific…it tells you specific things and in the Book of Daniel, and in the Book of Revelation, which just might apply to these times here. And it says certain wars are gonna, soon about gonna happen. I can't say exactly when, you know, but say, pretty soon anyway and…So, at that time, you know, it mentions a country to the furthermost north and it has its symbol: the bear. It's also is spelt R O S H in the Bible, now, this is written quite a few years ago, so it can't really but apply to one country that I know. Unless you know another country that it can apply to. Maybe you do, I don't. But then there's another country called, I can't remember what the name of it is, but it's in the eastern part of the world and it's got an army of 200 million foot soldiers. Now there's only one country that that could actually be. So anyway, I was telling this story to these people. I shouldn't have been telling it to them, I just got carried away. And…I mentioned to them, “Well, you all watch now because Russia is gonna come down and attack the Middle East.” It says this in the Bible. And I been reading all kinds of books my whole life, magazines, books, whatever I could get my hands on, anywhere, and I never found any truth in any of them, if you wanna know the truth. But these things in the Bible they seem to uplift me and tell me the truth. So I said this country is gonna come down and attack, and all these people, there must have been 50,000…[voice of band member): “If there was one.”] If there was one, that’s right. No, I don’t know, there wasn't 50,000, there was, I don’t know, maybe 3,000, they all just booed. You know, like they usually do, they just booed. I said Russia's gonna attack the Middle East and they all went “boo”. They couldn't hear that, they didn't believe it. And a month, a month later Russia moved their troops into, I think, Afghanistan, it was, and the whole situation changed, you know. I'm not saying this to tell you, you know, that they was wrong and I was right or anything like that. But these things that is mentioned in the Bible I pay mighty close attention to. So it does say that, talking about this man here called Anti-Christ. Now we've had a lot of previews of what the Anti-Christ could be like. We had that Jim Jones, he's like a preview. We had Adolf Hitler, a preview. Anyway, the Anti-Christ is gonna be a little bit different than that. He's gonna bring peace to the world for a certain length of time. But he will eventually be defeated to. Supernaturally defeated. And God will intervene. But you're still gonna have to be aware of these things. You need something strong to hang on to. I don't know what you got to hang on to, but I got something called a solid rock to hang on to that was manifested in the flesh, and justified in the spirit, and seen by angels, preached on in the world. (before Solid Rock)

Well, we're gonna have to go now. The man there says we…Can we play one more? Ok, we play one more. Anyway, I want you to tell people to write to me now. I don't know if we come back here. I try and get back next year. I want you to write to me now and tell me what you're thinking. Any of you got any questions or something you just write them in there, send them in. Prayer requests, questions, any of that. (before In The Garden)

All right. The man on the keyboards right here, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards, Terry Young. Playing drums tonight, Jim Keltner. Lead guitar is Fred Tackett. Man playing the bass guitar, Tim Drummond. Over on the far right, that's Clydie King. Standing next to her is Mona Lisa Young, Mary Bridges, Gwen Evans. The young lady next to her is the one who told you the story about Jesus before, remember? Somebody's got to tell you about Jesus, right? I know sometimes people say to me, "Bob, how can you believe that stuff ?" I was raised in the Church, either Methodist, Catholic, Calvinist or whatever. But there's churches and there's churches. Unless you’re in a spirit filled church you ain't in no church at all. It says that the last day God’s gonna pour his spirit out upon all flesh. And it's happening right now. (Bob starts singing Are You Ready, then realizes he forgot to introduce one member of the band). That's Regina McCrary.

Thank you. Hanging on to a solid rock. Jesus is that solid rock. There's a form of levity they call (…..). They got a way of (…..) all around. Make what's good seem bad and what's bad seem good. I saw a young girl the other day who just lives from orgasm to orgasm. I know that's a strange thing, but that's what she had to do because of these so called modern times. Well, she's not satisfied. (before Solid Rock)

Thank you. Thanks very much. We're gonna play one more. I guess we have to leave town tomorrow, yeah? If you want us to come back you write us some letters. Write us some letters anyway. (after What Can I Do For You).

(…..). Right. We’re coming up to what? What have we got right now? The midnight hours, huh? Are we in the midnight hour? Don’t nobody know? (before When You Gonna Wake Up)

All right. Do you know how often I've followed that track, expecting too much from people? When Jesus walked into Jerusalem all the people there, shouting, went off and broke branches off the trees. “Hail! Hail! The King is coming.” (…..). But you know it's the same people who did that who shouted to crucify him. You may never be too sure. However Satan's getting ready to weave his masterpiece and you got to have some strong faith. (…..). (after Do Right To Me Baby)

Thank you. I have to say hello to my old friend from Woodstock if he’s still around…Woodstock’s still around. (…..). (after What Can I Do For You)

Well all kinds of things happening in the world today. ... just resigned. What do you think about that? Is that surprising? No that's not surprising, stranger things have happened than that. Jesus is coming again though, that's important. (before Slow Train)

Bob Dylan ain’t gonna save you. Ha. You're in trouble, Bob Dylan ain't gonna do anything. You need the Lord. (before Do Right To Me Baby (Do Unto Others)

Thank you. Well, how many of you out there, how many of you know that Satan is called the God of this world? Who knows that. Prince of the Power of the air. He's a spiritual being nothing you can do to him. Anybody? Now Jesus Christ defeated that power at the Cross, who knows that? These are dangerous times. A lot of people think Jesus was just some kind of meek person who came around on Earth and helped others by being so meek. But that's not true. People say when under the power of Jesus can't sin but chairs and tables can’t sin either that can't be it. Sin keeps the power of God in bondage. So sometimes I go on and on and they say “Bob, don't preach so much.” Anyway Jesus did say blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted. Well, it doesn't say exactly that. Exactly that it says "blessed are those that mourn for only they shall be comforted." some Bibles say blessed are those that hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be satisfied. But it really means only they shall be satisfied. Now we say all these things and you know if Satan is the God of this world all these things don't seem to be true. Too strong and true. They don't seem to be good principles to live by because Satan doesn't like that. Now I been talking about Satan now as a spiritual being. Not somebody you can see. But he can possess you. I didn't know none of these things 4 years ago either. I don't know why I'm up here telling you this. But I always told you the truth, I never told you to vote for nobody. Never told you to follow no guru. I never told you to buy no product. Never told you what to wear or how to cut your hair. Some of you may not get it, some of you might. But I want you to know I could die right now, this very minute. I know I still have eternal life. (before Solid Rock)

Also from San Francisco a young lady who's been with me a while, Mona Lisa Young. Young girl who told you the story about Jesus earlier, remember that story? Remember that name now. You might not ever hear that name again, but I know you wanna be free. We all wanna be delivered don't we? Well. Jesus will deliver ya! You wanna a doctor he'll cure you. You want a lawyer? He'll fight your battles. What ever you want he's all that. You know the Baptist he baptized with water. Jesus he baptized with fire and the Holy Spirit. From Nashville Tennessee, Regina McCrary.

Thank you. (…..). I believe in a God that can raise the dead. Anyway, now it’s the only way. Anyway, I wanna introduce a few young ladies to you right now. Gwen Evans is gonna sing a song called…I’m not sure…Lord Don’t Move The Mountain.

That was Gwen Evans. Mary Bridges is gonna come and sing too. She will sing a song called Walking Around Heaven All Day. Mary Bridges.

Thank you. Yeah. Lot of people have heard that name Satan. Not too many people know who he is. Satan is the God of Self. Called the God of Self. He’s a defeated foe. But Jesus is saying there isn’t any self, it’s just a big bluff. So if you’re descended with Adam…anybody here descended with Adam? Well, Adam gave the Devil keys over you. And Jesus Christ went to the cross and took those keys back. (before Saved).

Thank you. (…..). Anyway, this is a nice place. I’ve been here before. I’ve been walking around today. You have plenty of…I know there’s many tall steeples, big churches with stained glass windows. Let me tell you one thing; God’s not necessarily fond of them. He can't be converted into steeples and stained glass windows. (…..). Don't you be deceived now. There's only one Christ and we know where to find him. (before In The Garden)

It was not that long ago. I know it seems like a long time ago. Can't be more than a couple of hours ago. You remember that name now, you may not hear it again. That name will save you. A lot of people you know today they don't believe in Heaven and Hell. They think you just go on forever. And when they die, that's it. But let me assure you, ladies and gentlemen, that there is a Heaven and Hell. And if you don't believe it, you just die and you'll find out. I never heard of anybody come back from Hell to tell what it's like. Anyway, Jesus will deliver you. He'll heal you. (…..). You got boyfriend/girlfriend troubles, you got drug problems, you got law problems. Jesus will sell you fame (…..). Anyway, from Nashville, Tennessee, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you. Alright, last chance for you to come view these shows before you read the newspaper. Cause they say all kinds of things. Usually they're not true. Not too encouraging you know. Reporters they either don't know about it or some religion barrier. Or they may think they know about it. They think of God as a friend, that's as far as it goes. They don't think of any morality at all, or gender. I know some relationships have gone wrong haven't they? I know mine have. Children can't get along with their parents. Parents can't get along with their children. Can't get along with their boss Can't get along with wife or relationships. Or Satan or ..... The Bible says God gave Christ as reconciled the world to him. And got to get a relationship with God if everything else is falling o bits. Don't you worry about the country now, cause the Bible said "Blessed is the man who walks not in the council of his own country." (before Slow Train)

Well, thank you. Who knows that sometimes we expect too much of someone and they let you down? I hear a couple, just a couple. For you to trust and let you down. That's a decision. Most of you show me the side you wanna show me. But I say you're in the same position to. There's only one name that can save you. Only one person who went to the Cross for you. And you can take it or leave it. Now we don't believe in a Heaven and Hell. You just die, you'll find out, remember that. When you came into this world what did you bring. What did you bring with him when you came into this world? What are you gonna take with you when you leave. You ain’t gonna take your baggage with you. You’re not take your bags, not gonna take your attitudes, not gonna take your prejudices nor pride. None of that, you’re taking none of that with you. You go all alone. (before Solid Rock)

Alright thank you. On the keyboards tonight from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Spooner Oldham. All right on the other set of keyboards from Birmingham, Alabama Terry Young.

Wasn't that long ago, about 6 hours or so? Yeah. We all got a lot of food, but you ain't missing food you need spiritual food. And you might never hear that name again but remember you heard it. Jesus is a part of yourself of anything. You got a health problem, you got a money problem, you got love problems. John the Baptist baptized with water, Jesus baptized with the Holy Spirit, it's a little different. Anyway, from Nashville, Tennessee, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you. Don't wanna hurt nobody, sometimes you know. I usually see this all the time. You see one man dressed a certain way, and another man dressed another way. And somehow your friendly to the man dressed one way an unfriendly to the man dressed the other way. Sometimes different people in positions in life say that they happen to treat some person one way, just because somebody don't have as much to do with them another way. Well you already judged that person when you called the cards. I guess some of you wonder "just what is he talking about? It don't make no sense any of this?" We live in leaderless times. I know we all agree about that. We realize that men will become lovers of their own selves. Most men are proud and arrogant one thing I know, oh yeah trials and tribulations will come. But eternal life is yours for the asking. And only God knows the secret of the Heart. God knows all the secrets, you can't keep nothing from him. All right now, don't you be deceived now by the mouthings of the truth. Lot of people pray, you wonder why they praying for. They ought to be praying all week. Praying all year, there's no doubt about it. You think about that. The Bible says "you pray you ask for forgiveness." Your assumed of your ungodly love. It's so easy, you pray you will probably be forgiven. God’s got a few things in store for you. And I know he's calling his people now. Some of you are Gods people. Some of you aren't, I don't know who. But in the last days he's gonna pour out his spirit on all flesh. Now you know if he's called or not, I don't. (before Solid Rock)

Thank you, all right we got one more. What? I can't hear you? We have to leave, but you don't need me to keep believing. (before In The Garden)

Thank you. On the keyboards tonight from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, a legend in his own time, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards Terry Young.

God spoke in Cincinnati Ohio too, you can be sure of that, Tim Drummond. This young lady over there from Dallas Texas, you probably heard her voice on many records and didn't know it. Miss Clydie King. Standing next to her from Houston Texas, Gwen Evans. Next to her from San Francisco. San-Fran-Cis-C0, Mary Bridges. Also from San Francisco, ha ha Mona Lisa Young. Girl who told you the story about Jesus before, remember? You know about 4 or 5 months ago. Anyway. Jesus is the way of Salvation. Bible says friendship wins worlds. Friend of the world is the enemy of God. I know that's a rough truth but it is the truth. Friend ship in the world, when the worlds empty be from God. Anyway from Nashville Tennessee, a preachers daughter too, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you. I Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody. You know maybe sometimes an evil man might die. .... long limousines, on their way to the funeral. And you know the man is evil, you just do know. And you know how the Minister always says "Lord accept this man" but by that time it's too late. They try to preach him into Heaven after he's dead. Anyway, some people may have seen me before, some may not have. You know, pop music always have been very popular. I now when I was growing up I used to listen to Hank Williams, Little Richard, Gene Vincent and all those people. And they kind of formed my style one way or another. But I can't help this type of music I play. This is the kind of type I always played. I know a lot of other people play this sort of kind of music, they tell me some strange things and the Devil’s taken rock n roll music and he's used it for his purposes. I know that some people might not believe there is a Devil at all. I'm not talking about a Devil with a pitchfork. Are you listening to me? All right, some of you might think of the Devil with a pitchfork and horns and that's not necessarily the Devil at all. I talk about the Devil that at one time was Gods chosen servant. His right hand helper, his right hand man, beautiful angel. We're talking about that Devil. He's a spiritual Devil and he's got to be overcome. He has been overcome by what Jesus did at the Cross. I just want to tell you that so you know. That's as short as I can put it. You may not have ever heard that. Well, we are living in the end times. We all agree about that. It's the midnight hour. God wants to know who his people are and who his people aren’t. So draw a line to God, he will draw a line to you. So, anyway I saw Bruce Springsteen he err, ha ha you know Bruce he's born to run. And unless he finds something, he's gonna keep a running. And he'll be chasin' him. But you can't run and you can't hide. (after Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody)

Thank you, well all right, we live in a dangerous time. I don't know what you read. All I read is the Bible, that's all I read. So you can quote me on that if you want. Once in a while I look in the newspapers and the Bible says, "Friendship with the world is enmity with God." In other words friend of the world is enemy of God. I know that sounds really strange. But sometimes the truths hard to take. But the truth will set you free. (before Solid Rock)

Thank you. On the keyboards tonight, from Muscle Shoals Alabama, give him a hand, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards from Birmingham, Alabama Terry Young. Lead guitar from Little Rock, Arkansas, Fred Tackett. On the drums tonight, from Tulsa Oklahoma, Jim Keltner. On bass guitar tonight from Cincinnati, Tim Drummond. On the far side from Dallas Texas, Miss Clydie King. Standing next to her from Houston Texas, Gwen Evans. From San Francisco Mary Bridges, also from San Francisco Mona Lisa Young. Standing next to her is a girl who’s been with me for a while. She told you the story about Jesus earlier, remember? Hasn't been that long ago, you didn't forget all about it did you? You know I never did tell you to vote for nobody. Never told you to follow no Guru, never advertised no product for you. Never told you how to dress, how to wear your hair, what to eat or what to drink. In fact I really haven't told you anything. Now I’m telling you Jesus is the way to salvation. And he is the God of this world and he's got the truth. Anyway from Nashville, Tennessee, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you, thank you. Alright, anybody left yet? ha ha. They tell me everybody leaves you at these shows. It’s a little hard to see out there. Middle of the road, East Coast bondage. God is waiting to set you free. I know you don’t hear to much about God these days, but we're gonna talk about him all night anyway. We’re not gonna talk about no mysticism, no meditation, none of those Eastern religions. We’re just gonna be talking about Jesus. Th demons don’t like that name. I’ll tell right now, if you got demons inside you, they’re not gonna like it. (before Slow Train)

Thank you, all right! I feel better now. I wanna introduce you to a young lady you can see in the flesh and been around a while and she sings for you called Miss Clydie King. She's gonna sing a song for you called "Calvary". Whether you know it or not you're all free. I know that some of you don't feel free, but you are. I can tell you right now that you've got an edge to be free because of what Jesus did at Calvary.

Thank you. I don't know if any of you have seen me before or not. I know I been through here before. I think it was, I think it was sometime in 1964. Anyway, I was singing some songs back then. I remember singing a song called Desolation Row, that's right! You're clapping now, you weren't clapping then! No, you weren't clapping then! I don’t know if the same people where there, but it was "What's he singing about?" You did not understand what I was singing then, I don't think I did either. Ha ha. I understand now pretty much what I'm singing about. It must have took a while for Desolation Row, Maggie's Farm, Subterranean Homesick Blues, all that stuff to really catch on. Because it wasn’t accepted very well at the time. But I’m always prepared for adversity. I was always prepared back then and now I’m even more prepared. All right, but lot of people they talk about Jesuses like they profess that they’re committed to the Lord. Well, I tell you now there's a lot of different types of Jesuses that they profess that they’re with. But there is only one Jesus. All eyes shall see him, every knee shall bow. The Jesus that have defeated the Devil. If you look onto Jesus you gotta look onto the Cross. All the Jesuses that will give you all the things you want, in your earthly life, forget about that Following Jesus is no easy trip, but it’s the only trip. I’m afraid to say, I’ve seen a lot of different kinds of other trips. You may not ever hear that name again. I know not long ago I had never heard of Him myself. Nobody ever told me that Jesus could save me. I didn't think I needed to be saved. I thought I was doing just fine. Well now, anyway, you know we live in dangerous times. Well, Jesus is prepared for that, he knew all about it. Right, I don't know what you're hanging on to. We're hanging on to a Solid Rock, made before the foundation of the world. The times´ coming when you’re gonna need something sort of like that. There’s gonna be a lot of delusion coming at you. You think what’s happening now is bad you just wait. You think it’s rough now is bad you just wait. The Bible says "Cursed is the man who trusts in man." (before Solid Rock)

On the keyboards tonight Spooner Oldham, from Muscle Shoals Alabama. On keyboards also Terry Young. From Little Rock, Arkansas Fred Tackett on lead guitar tonight. From Tulsa Oklahoma on the drums tonight, give him a warm hand, Jim Keltner. Tim Drummond from Cincinnati Ha ha. A man who's been around for a while. We been wanting to play with each other for at least 40 years now. Finally together in the same band Mr. Tim Drummond. From Dallas, Texas Miss Clydie King. From Houston Texas, Gwen Evans. From San Francisco now Mary Bridges, also from San Francisco, Mona Lisa Young. From Nashville, Tennessee, remember that girl who told you the story about Jesus before. Her dad is a preacher. She knows all about Jesus. Remember that name now. I can’t impress it upon your enough, I really can’t. If you got troubles, he'll take your troubles. You got to be delivered, he'll deliver you. If you’ve got money problems, health problems, confusion, deception, marital problems of any kind. Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you. All right, you know I talk mostly about God these days. About the spirit of God. Maybe talk about Jesus too. (....) they're not gonna like that name. You gotta warn them demons right now, (....) tonight. Anyway we gonna save the (....) too, we gotta face the worst of God. So like, you got a twenty dollar bill and you can spend it gotta take it to the bank to get it redeemed or you can't do that. (before When You Gonna Wake Up?)

Thank you. Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody. Can't let nobody take you there. Better read those compliments. I know that right now it's not fashionable to think about him, I know that. But God has got no fashion anyway God is always fashionable. But it's hard not to go to hell you know, there's so many distractions, so many influences, you start walking right, there's always someone there to drag you down. Sweet enemy on the outside then the enemy, comes inside. They got all kinds of ways. The Bible says resist the Devil never how sweet. You gotta stand to resist him, and so that's how we got to stand. Why we got to stand. You listening to me? Do you understand you gotta stand? Everybody know, all right? We got (...) to remember. We can come back tomorrow night, Oh Mercy! (before Cover Down/Break Through)

All right there it is. Long time ago they used to have these Greek plays, I guess, pretty long time ago. Anyway now they have groups called actors, you know that. Back then they had actors too, but they called them hypocrites. That's right! There'd be like a play, like a play with thirty people in it, but actually there'd only be four. They all used to wear masks. They'd all come out in a mask, [Dylan says a few words in a high-pitched voice] talk in another voice. They’d just were a mask. So four people could play the part of thirty people. That's a heavy responsibility, keeps you on your toes. Never know who you are, so there's a lot of hypocrites. They're talking, you know, using Jesus' name, but don't you let that put you off, cause you're still dealing with the world. Jesus has overcome the world, that's what he did at the Cross. As simple as that. You may think it's complicated, but actually if you look at Jesus you gotta look at the Cross. Actually if you're wondering why all these things are happening these days. Joshua you know he went to, I believe it was Canaan land and God told him at certain times to destroy all the Canaanites, every man, women and children there. That's bad! He certainly hated to leave the children, but they were just all defiled. And there was some cities that he said, "oh go in there yeah" and Joshua wondered why, and God said because their iniquity is not yet full. So now, when you look around today, when we started out this tour, we started out in San Francisco. And ..., that's a ... San Francisco is a kind of a unique town these days. I think it's either one third or two thirds of the population there are homosexuals. All right! I guess they're working up to a 100 per cent, I don't know. Anyway, it’s a growing place for homosexuals, and I read they have a homosexuals politics, it’s a political party, I don't mean it's going on in somebody’s closet, I mean it's just political. All right, you know what I'm talking about. Anyway would just think ..., I guess the iniquity’s not yet full, and I don't wanna be around when it is! (before Solid Rock)

All right, thank you. All right we gotta go soon. Actually I could stay here and talk to you all night. But I tell you it's later than you think, but in truth it's sooner than you think. (before In The Garden) Thank you. All right, on the keyboards tonight, from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, give him a hand, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards, from Birmingham Alabama, Terry Young. Lead guitar tonight, from Little Rock, Arkansas, Fred Tackett. On the drums, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Jim Keltner. Playing bass guitar tonight from Cincinnati, Mr. Tim Drummond. All right, from Dallas, Texas, Clydie King. From Houston, Texas, Gwen Evans. From San Francisco, ha ha, Mary Bridges. Also from San Francisco, Mona Lisa Young. Remember the girl who told us the story about Jesus quite a while ago. Remember that name. I know some of you are on the verge of committing suicide! Others here think you got it all together. Don't matter. Heaven and Earth are all gonna pass away. If you wanna be alive, go look into Jesus. He'll probably give life and life more abundant. He who sets free is free and easy. From Nashville, Tennessee, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)

Thank you. It’s sooner than you think. All right. Much sooner. I know some of you out there are on the verge of suicide. All right. Satan’s called the God of this world.

All right, thank you. I Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody. I know it's not fashionable. It's not fashionable to be thinking about Heaven and Hell. I know that. But God’s always in fashion. So we're gonna be talking about Jesus tonight. And I warn you right now, that if you got any demons inside of you at all they're not gonna like that name, Jesus. They're gonna rebel against that. I know a lot of you think of yourselves as rebels. But let me tell you something, you ain't no rebel at all unless you rebel against the Devil. (after Ain’t Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody)

Thank you. Well, I'd like to say right now we're not gonna give an altar call tonight. There's a pit right here in front of the stage. But I am gonna try to implant the words of God in you. I know, you cast out seeds; you cast out on the wayside. Some seeds they go on to the rock. Other seeds they go into the thorns, then there some seeds go on the fertile ground. I know some of you are gonna hear this. You’re gonna hear Jesus died for your sins and to destroy the works of the Devil and you're gonna rejoice when you hear that. A lot of you don't know (…..) an oath, you figure it's a political system or something. You don't know the Devil’s behind politics. You don't know you are the tree that God believes in. Anyway, some of you are gonna hear that word, it's like throwing it out to the wayside. You hear it, but you're gonna leave this room, it's gonna disappear immediately. Others of you are gonna hear it, it's gonna be like putting on a rock, you’re also gonna rejoice. But you’re gonna go out there and it's not gonna take any deep root. It's gonna be snatched away by the enemy. I don't mean that old enemy that Waylon Jennings talks about, and Willie Nelson, and Jackson Browne, and Henry Kissinger, any of those people. I mean the real enemy, that one that wants your soul. All right, some of you you’re so choked by the riches of this world, the cares of this world that those riches and those cares are gonna choke this word. I know all about that. But others, I know, are gonna plant the word in fertile ground. For these are the last days, these dark times. It's the midnight hour. I know some of you are on the verge of committing suicide. Some of you, you think you got it all together; it don’t matter. Jesus came for all nations. Every knee shall bow, every tongue will confess. (before Slow Train)

All right, thank you. Well, we're hanging on to a solid rock. I don't know what you're hanging on to, but we're hanging on to a solid rock.

All right, on the keyboards tonight, from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards, from Birmingham, Alabama, Terry Young.

The girl that told you the story about Jesus, a couple of days ago. Can you hear me now? Remember that story she told you? Well, that's just what some of you, most of you, all of you have been looking for. And you just don't know it. John the Baptist he baptized with water. Jesus baptized with fire and the Holy Spirit, it's a little bit different. Anyway, from Nashville, Tennessee, Regina McCrary. (before Are You Ready?)
