Pledging My Time (October 8, 1987)

In 1987 there were just three performances of Pledging My Time. The first one, in September, relied on the standard lyrics. The third one (October 10) does repeat the “spend the night in jail” line, but the lines which surround it are partially formed and hard to decipher. The second one is presented here, with a lyric variation that is loosely based on the final verse of the original version.

That’s the end of my story
That’s the end of my tale
I’m gonna get
lucky, baby
I’ll spend the night in jail
I’m spending
my time to you
Hopin’ you’ll come through, too

Well, they sent for the ambulance
And one was sent

Somebody got lucky
But it was an accident
Now I’m pledging my time to you
Hopin’ you’ll come through, too
