Dylan's "Big Yellow Taxi" contains one of my favourite
"the big furry dice pulled up at a parking lot" :-)
Only recently did I find out this should be "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"..

Has anyone else noticed that Dylan changes a key line of Joni Mitchell's 'Big Yellow Taxi' in his cover of it on the 'Dylan (A Fool
Such As I)' album?
In fact there is no taxi at all in Dylan's version, except in the title - where Joni sings:

On the album "Miles of Ailses," Joni sings Big Yellow Taxi, and she sings a line very similar to that bulldozer line quoted above.
That probably answers my query. But I'm still not sure, as 'Miles of Aisles' appeared in 1975 and the 'Dylan (A Fool Such as I)' album is a '73 release and was recorded some years before that.
