Some people some places in and out of time they've got that Shining they don't need to say or do anything they've just got that Shining Holed up in a cabin in Ridgway, Colorado just a you and me and Shining from Tijuana down to New Orleans it's the same long as you keep on Shining From a hedge maze up in Amsterdam way down to the Saint Francis Dam took a ride up Mulholland Drive walked away from Riget Hospital with more than my life... Some people some places in and out of time we got that Shining we don't need to say or do anything we just got that Shining Meet me at the Timberline Lodge The Great Northern hotel's our next stop then we'll take a ride along that long pipeline make it to the Arctic Circle right about the right time... Some people some places in and of our minds we got that Shining don't need to say or do anything as long as ya keep on Shining Pulled out of a corner in Northern Arizona took a long strong whiff of that Shining wild wild horses couldn't drag us away we've got a long way to go but we keep on Shining Shine on me once Shine on me twice Shine Shine on me three times keep on Shining Paradise Keep Shining on the ones you love Keep Shining on the heavens above Keep Shining baby come on Shine on me ya Shine on me

I once met a pretty reasonable man and he seemed to have some kind of plan so I took my family way down south to Guyana back in '76 1976 like a 1776 ooooooo Then things started gettin real weird specially after that congressman and reporters disappeared and he ordered us down to the killing grounds back in Jonestown '78 1978 like a 1778 ooooooo He said There's a place for you in a promised land and I'll take you there if you take my hand but the one thing you must understand's that there ain't comin back no more back no more comin back no more ooooooo ain't comin back no more! Once sat next to a guy on a bus then he sawed my head clean off but he whispered in my ear fore he made the final thrust that there ain't comin back no more I have a girlfriend and a car I'm living the American dream this tank of gas won't get us far but for now we can do or be anything we're going further than before cashing in on all our possibilities we won't be coming back anymore now we've seen all that there is to see Took an all-night Greyhound south at every stop cyanide-foamin babies' mouths as the TVs played back the Jonestown tapes dated 1978 just like a 1778 just like in 2008 ooooooo ain't comin back no more! And if you want a reason I'm the one who's giving one to you to everything there is a season now turn me on until I'm not confused You know I licked a lot of plates in Memphis - woo! Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans but I never saw the good side of the city til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen Big Wheel keeps on turnin Proud Mary keeps on Shining and burnin and rollin, rollin rollin on a river you know you keep on rollin and a-rollin and a-rollin on a river yow!

I remember who you are but I've forgotten your name does it matter what I call you or does it have to be the same name as ever before though I've never felt like this before at all In the mornings when we wake up before it's going to rain can you tell me what is making all the differences inside the same ways that they were before though we've never been like this before at all I look around to see and all I see is everything that's not happening all around the world round the world wait to unfurl see it unfurl another age another daydream fading away in a collective way it's about that time ooooooo I forgot the name does it matter what I call it or does it have to be the same name as ever before though I've never felt like this before at all I look around to see and all I see is everything that's not happening on the horizon line horizon line wait for a sign to see a sign another ship another shift in paradigms as my vision resigns it's about that time ooooooo I forgot the name... It's been like this before

Everything has changed nothing is the same I'm in another body I feel unusual just like I never have before I'm in another body on another floor of the same apartment building as before Everything's the same nothing ever changed I'm in another body I feel unusual just like I always have before I'm in another body on another tour of the same American cities as before Everything is changing nothing is remaining I'm in another body I feel unusual like no one ever has before I'm in another body up against the door of the same 21st century as before

Bob Dylan is going to die and then it'll just be me and you Bob Dylan has had a long life I wonder what he's thinkin right now don't you? Bob Dylan is going to die and then it'll just be me and you and the ghost of Bob Dylan wandering the beaches of Malibu with a dog called Tag a camera a towel and a Subaru parked in the lot I loved you a lot I wondered what Bob Dylan thought
