DANCING IN THE DARK January 12, 1990 Toad's Place (New Haven)

Performed as a duet with Joan Baez.

 

DEAR MRS. ROOSEVELT January 20, 1968 (A) Woody Guthrie Tribute (NYC)

 

DEATH DON'T HAVE NO MERCY perhaps spring 1961
While no live performances of this song have been recorded or reported, an informal version was preserved on the May 1961 Minnesota Party Tape; that recording appears devoted to songs Dylan added to his repertoire during his early days in New York City.

 

DEEP ELLUM BLUES April 16, 1962 Gerdes Folk City (NYC)
This Gerdes hoot night set appears to include mostly recent additions to Dylan's repertoire.

 

DELIA probably spring 1960
This song appears on the Karen Wallace Tape, which apparently consists of songs from Dylan's earliest repertoire. Some sources suggest the song was the far less melancholy (and far less likely) Blind Blake variant usually known as "Delia's Gone." Dylan's first well-documented live performance of the song is April 15, 1992 (Sydney).

 

DEPORTEES unknown
Dylan's first documented performance of this song is from the May 9, 1974 Friends of Chile benefit concert, but it is almost impossible to believe this standard was not part of Dylan's playlist when he was a "Woody Guthrie jukebox."

 

DETROIT CITY November 12, 1990 Wharton Center (East Lansing)

 

DEVILISH MARY perhaps spring 1961
While no live performances of this song have been recorded or reported, an informal version was preserved on the May 1961 Minnesota Party Tape; that recording appears devoted to songs Dylan added to his repertoire during his early days in New York City.

 

DIAMOND JOE no live performance
While Dylan has recorded two different songs with this title -- the first for Good As I Been To You, the second for Masked And Anonymous -- he has played neither in live performance.

 

DINK'S SONG probably summer 1961
First reported as part of Dylan's setlist at a late September 1961 Gerdes performance, and said to be preserved on an uncirculating segment of a tape made by Cynthia Gooding. Dylan likely pulled the song from the Lomax archives (complete with intro) a month or two earlier.

 

DIRE WOLF February 12, 1989 Forum (Inglewood)
Song performed by the Grateful Dead, with Dylan joining on guitar.

 

DIXIE October 16, 1990 Beacon Theater (NYC)

DOLLY DAGGER March 18, 1992 Entertainment Centre (Perth)

 

DONALD AND LYDIA September 1971 Bitter End (New York City)
Song performed by John Prine, with Dylan on harp and backing vocals. Heylin dates this appearance to 1972, Shelton to 1973, but Prine's own account places the appearance in 1971.

 

DON'T LET YOUR DEAL GO DOWN April 13, 1992 State Theatre (Sydney)

 

DON'T PITY ME July 31, 1989 Amphitheatre (Joliett, QU)

 

DON'T YOU PUSH ME DOWN perhaps spring 1961
