Long Distance Operator

Bob Dylan

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


4 Dec 1965
cd imgLONG DISTANCE OPERATOR (T-218)

  Live, Berkeley Community Center CA - 4.dec.1965  

Long-distance operator
Place this call, it's not for fun
Long-distance operator
Please, place this call, you know it's not for fun
I gotta get a message to my baby
You know, she's not just anyone.

There are thousands in the phone booth
Thousands at the gate
There are thousands in the phone booth
Thousands at the gate
Everybody wants to make a long-distance call
But you know they're just gonna have to wait.

If a call comes from Louisiana
Please, let it ride
If a call comes from Louisiana
Please, let it ride
This phone booth's on fire
It's gettin' hot inside.

Everybody wants to be my friend
But nobody wants to get higher
Everybody wants to be my friend
But nobody wants to get higher
Long-distance operator
I believe i'm stranglin' on this telephone wire.
