The Long Branch NJ Incident

Get Flash to see this player.

A friend of mine got picked up by the cops this past summer and he recorded the whole thing then made up a song about it. It was all over the press but he only shared this song with his closest friends. Pic is the cop who picked him up.

I was walkin' down in Long Branch New Jersey one night
It was in the summertime '09
When a police officer said to me
What's your name?
What's your name?

Well I looked at her she was a pretty young thing named Christie.
Named Christie, she must have missed me
Well I said I'm Bob Dylan
and she said
Who's Bob Dylan?
We have reports of an eccentric old man walking around here

Well I ain't seen one and I been around here for a while now.

She said why you wearing two raincoats, sir?
I said its raining out and its raining really hard
I didn't think one would be quite enough.

Well she helped me in the car
And she said on the intercom
I got a man here and he says his name's Bob Dylan
And the young cop on the intercom says
Who's Bob Dylan?
Who's Bob Dylan?

Well I told the young cop
I'm here to play a concert with my good friend
My good friend, Willie Nelson

You know him don't ya?
I thought all you cops knew Willie Nelson.
She said to me
Who do you think we are the IRS?
