'Girl from The North Country'  Bob Dylan

"Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline".

In 1962 zong Dylan 'Girl From The North Country' al tijdens deze live-opname. Samen met Johnny Cash speelde Dylan in 1969, in de periode van de fameuze Nashville Recordings, deze uitvoering van 'Girl From The North Country'.
Een beetje heiligenschennis, maar toch wel erg grappig is deze persiflage van 'Girl From The North Country'. Voor de clou is het vooraf bekijken van de sessie van Dylan en Cash in Nashville met 'One Too Many Mornings' aan te raden.
Meer Dylan oa. in het Contouren album en ook in het album Greenwich Village.


'Girl from The North Country'  Bob Dylan.

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way i remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times i've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
