GutBucketeer Lyr Req: Minstrel Boy (Bob Dylan) (6) RE: Lyr Req: Minstrel Boy - Bob Dylan correct lyri 20 Feb 08

Peace: Yes, you are correct that the published lyrics in the book of Writings and Drawings by Bob Dylan show the lyrics for the disputed line to be:

"With twelve forward gears, it's been a long hard climb"

However, that is no where close to what he sings on the Self Portrait Album. where the last word in the line is clearly "down"
