Your Cities I Will Burn

Back online, and there's trouble on the road to Fennario. Always loved this old Scottish folk song, also known as The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie. "The captain fell in love with a lady like a dove..." Dylan recorded it for his eponymous debut album, and reinstated it in his Never Ending Tour setlists in the nineties at times, basing his new arrangement on the way Jerry Garcia & co tackled it some two decades earlier. Two excellent examples below.

Grateful Dead - Peggy O (live Springfield '74)
Bob Dylan - Pretty Peggy-O (live Frankfurt '96)

I particularly enjoyed the Grateful Dead version.
