Oct 1967
cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 11 THE BASEMENT TAPES COMPLETE

  The Basement Tapes - october 1967, #1, prev. uncirc.  

I see my light come shinin'	
From the west unto the east	
Any day now, any day now	
I shall be released.

Everything is not misplaced	
Every distance is not near	
Yet i remember every face	
Of every man who put me here.	

I see my light come shinin'	
Down to the east	
Any day now, any day now	
I shall be released.

They say every man needs protection	
They say every man must crawl	
But i swear i see my reflection	
So high above the wall.

I see my light come shinin'	
From the west unto the east	
Any day now, any day now	
I shall be released.

Now take a look around this [pennies?]
But if it's not the same
We see all his heart is breaking
And he swears that he was framed.

I see my light come shinin'
All down from west to east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released.  up

They say everythin' can be replaced
Yet every distance is not near
So i remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shinin'
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released.

They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
Yet i swear i see my reflection
Some place so high above this wall

I see my light come shinin'
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released.

Now yonder stands with me in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long i hear his voice shoutin' so loud
Cryin' out that he's been framed

I see my light come shinin'
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released.  up

Down here next to me in this lonely crowd
Is a man who swears he's not to blame
All day long i hear him cry so loud
Callin' out that he's been framed.

cd imgHARD TO FIND Vol. 3 (Even Harder To Find) (T-503)

  Martin Luther King Day, J.F.K. Opera House, Washington DC - 20.jan.1986  

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
I swear i see my own reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall.

I see my light come shinin'
I don't need no doctor or no priest
Any day now
I shall be released.

It don't take much to be a criminal
One wrong move and they'll turn you into one
At first the pain is just subliminal
You protect yourself and you're forever on the run.

I see my light come shinin'
I don't need no doctor or no priest
Any day now
I shall be released.

He will find you where you're stayin'
Even in the arms of somebody else's wife
You're laughin' now, you should be prayin'
This being the midnite hour of your life.

I see my light come shinin'
I don't need no doctor or no priest
Any day now
I shall be released.
Any day now
I shall be released.  up
