Visions of Johanna.. the ghost of electricity howls in her bones.

Here’s some actual Bob Dylan, since yesterday was kind of a tease…Visions of Johanna… another epic-one, of course, also off of the album Blonde on Blonde… enjoy.

Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet ?

We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin our best to deny it

And Louise holds a handfull of rain, tempting you to defy it

Lights flicker from the opposite loft

In this room the heat pipes just cough

The country music station plays soft

But there’s nothing really nothing to turn of

Just Louise and her lover so entwined

And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind.

The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face

Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place.

Now, little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously

He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously

And when bringing her name up

He speaks of a farewell kiss to me

He’s sure got a lotta gall to be so useless and all

Muttering small talk at the wall while I’m in the hall

Oh, how can I explain ?

XOXO

Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat…Xox

Bobby D is one of my Father’s number one Heros..of all time.. Therefore, most of my earliest-fondest memories, at home, include Bob Dylan records blasting in the background.. Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat (off his 7th studio album, Blonde on Blonde) has always been one of my favorite tunes of his… I always imagined Bobby D was singing it to me, lusting over my Leopard-Skin Pill-box hat..

I didn’t know until earlier tonight though, when I was searching for an epic Bobby-clip, that Beck, recently recorded a pretty-good cover of Pill-Box Hat in 2008.. for War Child: Heroes… before casting your first stone at Beck, however, know this..  Bob Dylan, personally hand-picked Beck to cover and record the song.. here’s Beck’s version.. it’s good.. but of course I prefer the real thing.

Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat

Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, you must tell me, baby

How your head feels under somethin’ like that

Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, you look so pretty in it

Honey, can I jump on it sometime?

Yes, I just wanna see

If it’s really that expensive kind

You know it balances on your head

Just like a mattress balances

On a bottle of wine

Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, if you wanna see the sun rise

Honey, I know where

We’ll go out and see it sometime

We’ll both just sit there and stare

Me with my belt

Wrapped around my head

And you just sittin’ there

In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, I asked the doctor if I could see you

It’s bad for your health, he said

Yes, I disobeyed his orders

I came to see you

But I found him there instead

You know, I don’t mind him cheatin’ on me

But I sure wish he’d take that off his head

Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, I see you got a new boyfriend

You know, I never seen him before

Well, I saw him

Makin’ love to you

You forgot to close the garage door

You might think he loves you for your money

But I know what he really loves you for

It’s your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
