WHAT WAS IT YOU WANTED?


WHAT WAS IT YOU WANTED?



What was it you wanted?

Tell me again so Iíll know

Whatís happening in there

Whatís going on in your show

What was it you wanted

Could you say it again?

Iíll be back in a minute

You can get it together by then

What was it you wanted

You can tell me, Iím back

We can start it all over

Get it back on the track

You got my attention

Go ahead, speak

What was it you wanted

When you were kissing my cheek?

Was there somebody looking

When you give me that kiss

Someone there in the shadows

Someone that I might have missed?

Is there something you needed

Something I donít understand

What was it you wanted

Do I have it here in my hand?

Whatever you wanted

Slipped out of my mind

Would you remind me again

If youíd be so kind

Has the record been breaking

Did the needle just skip

Is there somebody waiting

Was there a slip of the lip?

What was it you wanted

I ainít keeping score

Are you the same person

That was here before?

Is it something important?

Maybe not

What was it you wanted?

Tell me again I forgot

Whatever you wanted

What could it be

Did somebody tell you

That you could get it from me

Is it something that comes natural

Is it easy to say

Why do you want it

Who are you anyway?

Is the scenery changing

Am I getting it wrong

Is the whole thing going backwards

Are they playing our song?

Where were you when it started

Do you want it for free

What was it you wanted

Are you talking to me?






PERFORMANCES SINCE 1991


03 FEBRUARY 1991
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND

06 APRIL 1995
EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND

MAY 2021
SHADOW KINGDOM, CALIFORNIA









"WHAT WAS IT YOU WANTED?" had been released in September 1989 as the penultimate track on the sublime album "Oh Mercy", and had subsequently been performed twenty times from January to November 1990, and once more in February 1991 in Scotland. More than four years later, in April 1995, the song had a one off appearance, also in Scotland, which would be the last one for more than 26 years.

The first performance of "WHAT WAS IT YOU WANTED?" since 1995 was in California in 2021, where this gem of a song was sung masterfully by Bob Dylan as part of his "Shadow Kingdom" streaming broadcast. Should regular touring resume in 2022, "WHAT WAS IT YOU WANTED?" would definitely be a very fine addition to any Bob Dylan concert.
