We were chillin' watching your T.V. I felt it was comin' the closer that you got to me Wanted to touch you, wanted to kiss you And some how in one night, discover I love you Felt so right, but it felt so wrong And look how we're carryin' on Tryin' to say things to get me to stay But my watch is telling me it's getting to late, I'm thinkin'...
Not my own misheard lyrics, but Joan Baez got a lot of the lyrics wrong to The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down by the Band.
The funniest one is probably the lyric of Robert E. Lee riding by and I guess she thought it was "there goes the [sic] Robert E. Lee" like it was a steamroller.
Baez's version made some changes to the song lyrics from the original. Baez later told Rolling Stone's Kurt Loder that she initially learned the song by listening to the recording on the Band's album, and had never seen the printed lyrics at the time she recorded it, and thus sang the lyrics as she had (mis)heard them. In more recent years in her concerts, Baez has performed the song as originally written by Robertson.
"If there is no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do." "Nothing in the world is the way it ought to be. It's harsh and cruel. But that's why there's us. Champions."
