Something Wonderful: Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash - Girl From The North Country

"Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That’s the way I remember her best."

[Live / The Johnny Cash TV Show 1969]

I'll be passing this on. It brings back many memories. I know I still have the vinyl somewhere. It's a beautiful piece.

This has always been a favorite of mine. Dylan had a fine voice. That's probably why I keep playing the early albums.

He did a number of duets with Cash. You can find a few on Youtube. They're all interesting but "Girl" is truly outstanding.

I hate it when the words actually being sung don't match the provided transcription.
