worldwideboss Posted August 22, 2007 Share Posted August 22, 2007 Planet Waves is usually overlooked, mostly because people tend to focus on Blood On The Tracks, which was released just after it. But it is a phenomenal record, with Dylan being joined by The Band, which provides great instrumental parts as usual."Never Say Goodbye" has got to be my favourite song from it. It's just perfect. First, the lyrics:North wind about to breakOn footprints in the snowSilence down below.You're beautiful beyond wordsYou're beautiful to meYou can make me cryNever say goodbye.My dreams are made of iron and steelWith a big bouquetOf roses hanging downFrom the heavens to the ground.The crashing waves roll over meAs I stand upon the sandWait for you to comeAnd grab hold of my hand.Oh, baby, baby, baby blueYou'll change your last name, tooYou've turned your hair to brownLove to see it hangin' down.The lyrics are just plain beautiful. Add that to the brilliance of Robbie Robertson's guitar and Levon Helm's drums, and it has everything. One of my favourite songs ever.
