Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
Ancient footprints are everywhere
You can almost think that you're seein' double
On a cold, dark night on the Spanish stairs

    The piano version on Bootleg Series 10 is a revelation.

    The studio version is endearingly sloppy, but this song really comes into its own with 1975's Rolling Thunder Revue. Day after day, night after night, this song is just brilliant! I love the wild tempo shifts from show to show, too.

    my favorite part is "newspaper men eating candy... had to be held down by big police"

    This version is from the Bob Dylan 30th anniversary concert, 1993. Eric Clapton intro?
