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”).

Reportedly, this line’s first outing was the previous day, October 13, in Las Vegas. However, absent a circulating recording we are unable to verify for ourselves.

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
