DOES THIS BUS STOP AT 82ND STREET?

Live 18 Aug 2001 version


[Spoken:] Hello? Gotta get my cheat sheets ready, wait a minute. (chuckles) Hey!
Ah. Welcome to Asbury Park! It's great to — it's great to be here. Welcome to Clearwater Festival in Asbury. If any of these pages get away, someone'll chase them down for me please. All right.


Hey bus driver, keep the change, bless your children, give them names
Don't trust men who walk with canes
Drink this and you'll grow wings on your feet
Broadway Mary, Joan Fontaine, advertiser on a downtown train
Christmas crier bustin' cane, he's in love again

Where dock worker's dreams mix with panther schemes to someday own the rodeo
Tainted women in VistaVision perform for out-of-state kids at the late show

Wizard imps and sweat sock pimps, interstellar mongrel nymphs
Rex said that lady left him limp
Yeah, love's like that
Well, Queen of Diamonds, Ace of Spades, newly discovered lovers of the Everglades
Take out a full-page ad in the trades to announce their arrival

And Mary Lou found out how to cope, she rides to heaven on a gyroscope
The Daily News asks her for the dope
She says, "Man, the dope's that there's still hope"

Senorita, Spanish rose, wipes her eyes and blows her nose
Downtown in Asbury she throws a rose, to some lucky young matador
Sing, yeah!

Officially named "The Great Hudson River Revival", the festival is America's oldest and largest annual festival of its kind, and all proceeds benefit Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, a nonprofit environmental organization founded by folk singer Pete Seeger with his wife Toshi Seeger in 1966 that seeks to protect the Hudson River and surrounding wetlands and waterways through advocacy and public education.
