    This isn't Bob Dylan - it's someone else doing a Dylan song

    The desk clerk heard the woman laugh as he looked around the aftermath and the soldier got tough... He tried to grab the woman's hand, said, "Here's a ring it cost a grand". She said, "That ain't enough", then she ran upstairs to pack her bags while a horse-drawn taxi waited at the curb...

    As the island slowly sank, the loser finally broke the bank in the gambling room. The dealer said, “It’s too late now, you can take your money, but I don’t know how you’ll spend it in the tomb”. The tiny man bit the soldier’s ear as the floor caved in and the boiler in the basement blew, while she’s out on the balcony where a stranger tells her: “My darling, je vous aime beaucoup”. She sheds a tear and then begins to pray as the fire burns on and the smoke drifts away from Black Diamond Bay.

    The way Bob sings "she knocked upon it anyway" is enough to break your heart. A masterpiece of a song!

    " I turned it off and went to grab another beer..." What a jam! One of my favorites from 'Desire'.

    Then the volcano erupted and the lava flowed down from the mountain high above. The soldier and the tiny man were crouched in the corner thinking of forbidden love. But the desk clerk said, "It happens every day," as the stars fell down and the fields burned away on Black Diamond Bay.
