Tangled Up In Blue (October 14, 2016)

On this third concert date following a two month break, Dylan switched up one particular line for the first time, making his character’s actions less a possible accident of emotion (“used a little too much (brute) force”) and more calculating (“Then he let the law take its course”).

Here is this line as sung on October 14, while the first outing has been verified to have been on the previous day in Las Vegas.

She was married when they first met
She was soon to be divorced
But he helped her out of a jam, I guess
Then he let the law take its course

She was married when we first met
Soon to be divorced
I helped her out of a jam, I guess
But I used a little too much force
