Across the Great Divide – a friend of mine (Kent, you should know better) called this a weak track. I’d say it’s one of The Band’s best. I love it.
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down – Man, this is a classical song. The horns, the melody, the lyrics, everything is there. I remember listening to this song when they showed The Last Waltz on TV. Pure magic.
Virgil Caine is the name, and I served on the Danville train,
‘Til Stoneman’s cavalry came and tore up the tracks again.
In the winter of ’65, We were hungry, just barely alive.
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell, it’s a time I remember, oh so well,
King Harvest – Great song. Excellent lyrics.
Then here come a man with a paper and pen
Tellin’ us our hard times are about to end.
And then, if they don’t give us what we like
He said, “Men, that’s when you gotta go on strike.”
