Covers: Down Along the Cove

The last two songs on Bob Dylan’s 1976 album John Wesley Harding point the way out of the austerity and mystery of the rest of the record. They lead right into his next album, 1969’s Nashville Skyline. “Down Along the Cove” is the next to last song. The lyrics are straightforward and almost cliches. It seemed slight then but I like it more now. Dylan didn’t perform “Down Along the Cove” live for the first time for over 30 years.

The original version is not on YouTube in the US.
