Last EVER Waltz “I Shall Be Released” LIVE Performance, Ringo, Clapton, Dylan + Others | Society Of Rock Videos

The Last Band, Stands..

What is better than all the greats assembled to join in on one heart wrenching, acoustic ballad?

On November 25th of 1976, some of the best artists in the world came together at the Winter Ballroom in San Fransisco, CA for the The Band‘s last performance.

Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Ronnie Wood, and Ronnie Hawkins were just some of these huge names performing “I Shall Be Released” in perfect pitch, tone and harmony.

“I see my light come shining, from the west down to the east. Any day now, any day now, I shall be released.”

The Band seeks refuge from the nastiness, harm, and danger in the world in each other as they assemble to overcome these obstacles with these powerful and inspirational lyrics.

Fun Fact: Bob Dylan was the original writer of this song, channeling the idea of being released from Hell on Earth.

+ I Shall Be Released Lyrics +

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Now, yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he’s not to blame
All day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
