Bob Dylan – Man in the Long Black Coat (Audio)

Bob Dylan – Man in the Long Black Coat (Audio)


Crickets are chirpin’
the water is high There’s a soft cotton dress
on the line hangin’ dry Window wide open African trees Bent over backwards
from a hurricane breeze Not a word of goodbye
not even a note She gone with the man
in the long black coat Somebody seen him hangin’ around At the old dance hall
on the outskirts of town He looked into her eyes
when she stopped him to ask If he wanted to dance
he had a face like a mask Somebody said from
the bible he’d quote There was dust on the man
in the long black coat Preacher was talking
there’s a sermon he gave He said every man’s conscience
is vile and depraved You cannot depend on
it to be your guide When it’s you who must
keep it satisfied It ain’t easy to swallow
it sticks in the throat She gave her heart to the man
in the long black coat There are no mistakes in life
some people say It is true sometimes
you can see it that way But people don’t live or die
people just float She went with the man
in the long black coat There’s smoke on the water
it’s been there since June Tree trunks uprooted beneath
the high crescent moon Feel the pulse and vibration
and the rumbling force Somebody is out there
beating on a dead horse She never said nothing
there was nothing she wrote She gone with the man
in the long black coat

  1. There are no mistakes in life
    Some people say
    And that's true sometimes
    You can see it that way
    People don't live or die
    People just float
    She went with the man in the long black coat

  2. People just float and history repeats with a little exception of wisdom and hope. One of my top ten Bob songs thankyou vevo 🎶🌈🎶

  3. When THE BAND Told me they were gonna cover Blind Willie McTell I told them they should cover this instead as Blind Willie McTell wasn't an original melody! It wasn't the first time Rick and Levon yelled at me..

  4. Beating on a dead horse! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I really dislike this song too a lot.

  5. No mistakes; only human error.It's only too often the things we 'forget' to mention.
    Things we choose to forget. Lies of omission, the most deadly of them all.

  6. Sure, the nineteen-year-old Mercedes-Benz all-wheel-drive Runs like a dream. Clean as a bullet
    silver paint. Lift her up on the hoist and alas, nineteen Michigan winters have CO$T$ of their own.
    Seasoned with salt too many times, the pretty SUP was on the menu!! RU$T. Why do they call it,
    the RU$T belt?

  7. There is an Italian called Rivelli from Bolonga who keeps a poster on his walk it says 10 to the minus 23rd on NOR he explained after 7 yrs hitching round the USA. He came to a conclusion. That is the size of the smallest thing yet in Our Universe. He went on that this particle is more like a kiss than a stone. It is always in process and never hits u back.

  8. "people don't live or die people just float"
    thrilling song….amazing…totally hypnotized!! ❤❤❤

  9. I often think "Why do they need to change? They look so happy." But then you can't see the people who commit suicide (which God did and planned out for their lives) or who are in prison (which God did and planned out for their lives) out in some park on a sunny day. Just because you are happy doesn't mean its right. In fact there are a lot of things that make people happy that are wrong- like chocolate from child slaves and palm oil from deforested rainforests and trees from clearcuts and gold from huge holes dug into the earth. You would be happy wearing a leopard skin pill box hat, but that doesn't mean you should kill an endangered species just to make yourself look good.

  10. My god, he sucks when he sings sometimes! Joan Osborne's cover is so much dramatic and soothing. Let's admit that Dylan is just a good composer, but certainly not a singer. And he owes Joan Baez all the advertising.

  11. I always say that Bob Weir rode upon Jerry Garcia's coat tails, but can you imagine Jerry in a tux with tails? The only other long black coat people I know are the Columbine shooters and wanna-be's. The 9's are my number Bob, and I'm really into wildflowers- and no I'm not going to make a joke about it being a coincidence or a simple twist of fate because I don't think it is. That is a parallel track straight to hell if I've ever seen one.

  12. Parole e musica in magica fusione ad evocare una vicenda oscura e misteriosa, che va colta in senso simbolico.

  13. The Devil (aka God) wears all kinds of clothes and masks- not just long black coats- and sometimes when it really wants to show itself in its full glory, it appears naked with a huge penis and ass.

  14. When I say I hate something- I'm not just trying to put you down personally. God creates all, and I think there is probably a really good reason I hate this song- particularly if we treat words not as babble- but as things with meaning. Significant MEANing.

  15. Having a random.. let's smoke a J. after 7 cans….Going on 43yrs..😂. Gotta go to the building site tomoz…… carpenter……In my green state.. This song is gosble to my respect of brilliant poet's.✌️🇦🇺🐬😸🎸👂👂👂

  16. I'm beginning to think that Bob Dylan continued to put out great songs since his 1966 motorcycle accident 🙂

  17. Had a nightmare last night, started off when i heard a Bob Dylan song i didn't like, that's when i realized this ain't real
