Soon

Performed by Bob Dylan during the concert held on the 50th anniversary of Gershwin's death, Mar 11, 1987

The lyrics as Dylan sings them differ slightly from the original, which are given below. As a matter of fact, the tune isn't quite the way Gershwin wrote it either, so if you want the real thing, here's a leadsheet of the original (pdf).

Original Lyrics

Soon the lonely nights will be ended,
Soon, two hearts as one will be blended.
I've found the happiness I've waited for.
The only girl that I was fated for.

Oh, soon a little cottage will find us
Safe with all our cares far behind us
The day your mine this world will be in tune
Let's make that day come soon.
