George Harrison & Friends : Absolutely Sweet Marie


” Absolutely Sweet Marie ” es una canción escrita por Bob Dylan , lanzada en su álbum doble de 1966 Blonde on Blonde . La canción es un número exuberantemente acelerado.

“Absolutely Sweet Marie” se grabó el 8 de marzo de 1966 en Nashville, Tennessee. Solo se grabaron dos tomas completas de la canción. La primera toma fue lanzada en The Bootleg Series Vol. 12: The Cutting Edge 1965-1966 en 2015. 

Dylan no tocó “Absolutely Sweet Marie” en vivo hasta 1988, y la ha tocado de forma intermitente desde entonces, incluso durante una sesión para su aparición en MTV Unplugged .

George Harrison, el ex Beatle, cantó “Absolutely Sweet Marie” el 16 de octubre de 1992 en el Madison Square Garden de la ciudad de Nueva York en un concierto para conmemorar el 30 aniversario del primer álbum de Columbia Records de Bob Dylan. La pista aparece en el álbum 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration publicado en 1997 y nuevamente en 2014.

Well, your railroad gate, you know I just can't jump it
Sometimes it gets so hard, you see
I'm just sitting here beating on my trumpet
With all these promises you left for me
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I waited for you when I was half sick
Yes, I waited for you when you hated me
Well, I waited for you inside of the frozen traffic
When you knew I had some other place to be
Now, where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, anybody can be just like me, obviously
But then, now again, not too many can be like you, fortunately.

Well, six white horses that you did promise
Were fin'lly delivered down to the penitentiary
But to live outside the law, you must be honestY
I know you always say that you agree
Well, where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I don't know how it happened
But the river-boat captain, he knows my fate
Ev'rybody else, even yourself
Just gonna have to wait.

Well, I got the fever down in my pockets
The Persian drunkard follows me
And I can take him to your house but I cannot unlock it
You see, you forgot to leave me with the key
Yeah, where are you tonight, sweet Marie?
