"If You See Her, Say Hello (Bob Dylan cover)" as written by and Bob Dylan....
If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier
She left here last early spring, is livin' there I hear
Say for me that I'm all right though new things come and go
She might think that I've forgotten her but don't tell her it isn't so

We had a falling-out, like lovers often will
But to think of how she left that night, still gives me a chill
And though our separation, well it chilled me to the heart
She still lives on inside of me, we've never been apart

If you're making love to her, kiss her for the [Incomprehensible]
Who always has respected her for doing what she did
For I know it had to be that way, it was written in the cards
But the bitter taste still lingers on, it all came down so hard

Well, I meet a lot of people as I make the rounds
And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town
And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off
Well, either I'm too sensitive or else I'm just gettin' soft

If you see her

Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past
I know every scene by heart 'cause they all went by so fast
If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find
Tell her, she can look me up if she's got the time

Tell her, she can look me up if she's got the time

    General Comment"Drowned" seems like a bad choice of words, pierrefitter. But even given the recording conditions, I love Buckley's version more than Dylan's. Same goes for "Mama You Been on My Mind."

    The only Buckley version I've ever heard of this is on Live at Sin-é, and it has slightly different lyrics.
    Like in the first verse it's "new things come and go" instead of "things get kind of slow"
    Second verse he sings "it chilled me to the heart" not "pierced"
    The biggest difference is in the third verse, which goes:

    "If you're making love to her, kiss her for the kid
    Who always has respected her for doing what she did
    For I know it had to be that way, it was written in the cards
    But the bitter taste still lingers on, it all came down so hard."

    And the fourth verse starts "Well I meet a lot of people" instead of "I see a lot of people."
    Mostly small stuff, but the third verse is quite different. I actually like Buckley's better. It's got more soul and it seems less clunky in a way.
    It's a beautiful version of a beautiful song.
    Considering how he could cover a song & make it better than the original, it's amazing to me that anyone would try to cover his songs.

    General CommentOh Come on - this song (with slightly different lyrics from the original) is just beautiful - I've heard both the Dylan version and this one and I have to say, under better recording conditions, Jeff's would've probably drowned out Dylan's completely
