Going the other way......

A friend of mine has gotten me fired up over the Dylan-Willie Nelson concert at First Horizon Park next month. In preparation, I've been listening to Dylan's Bootleg Series, Vol. 3. One song I hope to hear, and which would be appropriate considering the venue, is "Catfish," Dylan's tribute to Hall of Fame pitcher and native son Catfish Hunter:

"Used to work on Mr. Finley's farm
But the old man wouldn't pay
So he packed his glove and took his arm
And one day he just ran away

Catfish, million-dollar man
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Come up where the Yankees are
Dress up in a pinstripe suit
Smoke a custom-made cigar
Wear an aliigator boot

Catfish, million-dollar man
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can."
