They're selling postcards of the hanging
They're painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they're restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row.
Another one of Bobs Boots. The Jones Beach shows are well booted because they use closed loop out-put for the hard of hearing. A great performance of one of my favourite songs ever. Its quite bouncy in interpretation and his voice was still mainly functional. Jam the life out of this, it's short lived.
