Still on the Road: Songs of Bob Dylan, 1974-2008 v&hellip by Clinton Heylin
Whilst discussing the out- take version of "Someday Baby" which appears on Tell Tale Signs- The Bootleg Series Volume 8
Mr. Heylin quotes Dylan as singing " every day I'm coming home with a different grip"
It is only my opinion but does he not actually say "I'm becoming more of a hypocrite" ?
