Mike T. where is that quote taken from?

There’s a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck; There’s an iron cross still hanging from around her neck;
There’s a marching band still playing in that vacant lot, Where she held me in her arms one time and said, “Forget me not.”

It's from "Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)," by Bob Dylan. It's a great song, if almost forgotten.

Dylan himself isn't always the best interpreter of his own compositions: my favourite rendition of this one is by the Jerry Garcia Band, recorded live at the Warfield, San Francisco, April 15, 1990. Even if you don't like the Grateful Dead, have a listen to the JGB from this era — a totally different vibe, with some of JG's greatest work.

You'l find it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=830_e6tD8Fw. Clarence Clemons played many entire shows with the JGB around this time: unfortunately this wasn't one of them, which is why I didn't embed this YouTube clip here on SotW. But it's a fine performance all the same.
