Shadow Kingdom recording sessions, Santa Monica CA - Apr/May 2021 (sk)

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
An' it's easter time too
An' your gravity fails
An' negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on rue morgue avenue
They got some hungry women there
An' they really make a mess outta you.

Now if you see Saint Annie
Please tell her thanks a lot
[I cannot move / I can't move too good(sk)]
My fingers are all in a knot
I don't have the strength
To get up an' take another shot
An' my best friend, my doctor
Won't even [say / tell me(sk)] what it is i have got.

Sweet Melinda
The peasants call her the goddess of gloom
She speaks good english
An' she invites you up into her room
An' you're so kind
An' careful not to go to her too soon
An' she takes your voice
An' leaves you howlin' at the moon.

Up on Housin' Project hill
It's either fortune or fame
You must pick one or the other
Though neither of them are [to be] what they claim
If you're lookin' to get silly
You better go back to from where you came
Because the cops don't need you
An' man, they expect the same.

Now all the authorities 
They just stand around an' boast
How they blackmailed the sergeant at arms
Into [ leavin'/givein' up(sk)] his post
An' pickin' up Angel who
Just arrived [here] from the coast
Who looked so fine at first
But left lookin' just like a ghost.

I started out on burgundy
But soon hit the harder stuff
Everybody said [they'd stand / they're right(sk)] behind me
When the game got rough
But the joke was on me
There was nobody even there [to bluff / to call my bluff(sk)]
I'm goin' back to New York city
I do believe i've had enough.

  Highway 61 Revisited session 5, Columbia Studio A - 2.aug.1965, take 3  

When you're lost in the rain down in Juarez
When it's easter too
And your gravity drops
An' negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're walkin' on rue morgue avenue
They got some hungry women there
An' they really make a mess out of you.

Well if you see Saint Annie
Please tell her thanks a lot
I cannot move
My fingers they're all in a knot
I do not have the strength to get up
And take another shot
And the doctor who's my best friend
Won't even tell what it is i've got.

Sweet Melinda
The peasants call her the goddess of gloom
She speaks good english
An' she invites you up into her room
An' you're so kind
An' careful not to go too soon
An' laid around
You're left howlin' at the moon.

Up on Housing Project hill
It's either fortune or fame
You must pick one or the other
Though neither of them are what they claim
If you're lookin' to get silly
You better go back to from where you came
Because the cops don't need you here
And man, they expect the same.

Now all the authorities 
They just stand around an' boast
How they blackmailed the sergeant at arms
Upon givin' his post
To go bust Angel who
Just arrived here from the coast
Who looked so fine at first
But left here lookin' just like a ghost.

I startet out on burgundy
And soon hit the harder stuff
Everybody said they'd stand behind me
When the game got rough
But it was all a laugh
Because there was no one there to call my bluff
I'm goin' back to New York city
I believe i've had enough.

  New Morning recording session 1, Columbia Studios, NYC - 1.may.1970  


When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's eastertime too
And your gravity's down
Negativity don't get you through
Just don't put on any airs
On rue morgue avenue
They've got some hungry women there
they really make a mess out of you.

If you see Saint Annie
Please tell her thanks a lot
I cannot move so well
My fingers are all in a knot
I don't have the strength to get up
And get another shot
And my best friend, the doctor
Won't say what it is that I've got.

Up on Housing Project Hill
It's either fortune or fame
You must pick one or the other
Neither of them are what they claim
If you're looking to get silly
You'd better go back to from where you came
'Cause the cops don't need you
And man, they expect the same.

Well I started on Burgundy
Soon hit the harder stuff
When the game got rough
when the game finally got rough
Everybody was my friend
When the going got tough
I'm going back to New York City
I believe I've had almost enough.

Hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's easter time too
And your gravity's down
Negativity don't get you through
Just don't put on any airs
On rue morgue avenue
They've got some hungry women there
They really make a mess out of you.

Hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
