My life's an open book, you read it on the radio
We've got no where to hide, we got no where to go
But' if you still decide you want to take a ride.

Meet me at the Wrecking ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dancing tonight.

I see smokey eyes right across the bar
I've seen that look before shining from star to star
Though I can't take that change
If you've got time for one dance.

The restless line of cars goes stretching down the road
But I won't telephone cause you might say hello
What is it makes me feel this way
What is it makes me want to say...

And Bob Dylan is the greatest tenor of all times, too.

And this from someone who gives the Smashing Pumpkins 9's.  {#Beat}
Seriously? This is one of my favorite songs ever, so haunting and beautifull! I love Neil's version of his song, But Emmylou nails it as well, especially with Neil in the background!

Neil wrote this and he's the only one who can deliver this song correctly.  Sorry Emmylou.

 
I concur.
Yes, yes you will.

Forgive me, RP community.
I'm sure I will burn in hell for this crime against good taste.  ; )

Doesn't do much for me. Sounds whiney  monotonous and very repetitive
Love your graphic and the song. on the beach! 


I do love Emmylou and she gives a very good accounting of herself on the Neil Young title track here.

Wrecking Ball is a great - perhaps underappreciated - album of great cover tunes;

 - Blackhawk (Daniel Lanois)
 - May This Be Love (Hendrix)
 - Orphan Girl (Gillian Welsh)
 - Goodbye (Steve Earle) 
 


An unsubtle video, in the vein of you-know-who, might help this song quite a bit...
"eat me like a rack of bones"
If only Bill would follow this with Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball".....
Great segue Bill.... from AfroCelts... ran into the intro on this seamlessly..
