BarbaraTherese Posted May 20, 2021 Author Share Posted May 20, 2021 The above is for the sheer unadulterated heck of it. If you really listen and hear the lyrics they are profound and holy - a remarkable humility from Neil Diamond speaking about his personal experience at what I suppose is a travelling evangelical Christian gathering. _____________________ My brother's girlfriend at the time was as keen on Neil Diamond and his lyrics as I was. We went to his concert when he was here when I was in my twenties it must have been. He began to sing the above lyrics and video. Glenna grabbed my hand and jumped up on her seat so I did the same. Neil Diamond stopped singing, walked to the edge of the stage (we were in the third or fourth row) bowed and said "My Ladies", Glenna and I sat back down quickly very embarrassed as when we looked around to see who he had been bowing to, we seemed the only one's in a crowd of thousands who had jumped on to their seats, hands clapping above our heads. Nah, they must have sat down too we decided. I had my fingers crossed. "Holly Holy" Lyrics My son cannot stand either Neil Diamond nor Bob Dylan. I wonder why.............my dear son! I don't do play them any more, not like I used to back then, but there was a time of years when I only played either singer belting out on our record player......back in the dark ages......very dark....the darkest. http://Bob Dylan official website - Lyrics to "You been on my mind"Dylan Saw Bob Dylan in concert twice. The first was fantastic, although the woman next to me kept handing me a hand rolled cigarette, which I just passed on. It smelt funny and there was a blue haze all over the audience, a funny smell too (I was pretty dumb back then) - but in the second at Memorial Drive many years later, it was written all over him in every way, seemingly "Hick town, hick concert". It was a terrible concert, it seemed as if he just could not be bothered, so I went behind the grandstand took out my Rosary and, sat on the grass, prayed rather than endure his very bored concert. I had no way of getting home until the 'concert' was well and truly finished. That's it - finished! My stroll down memory lane kaput............very thankfully too......... ........for now..........
