Tomorrow Is A Long Time
"Tomorrow Is A Long Time" is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan. Dylan's version first appeared on the album BOB DYLAN'S GREATEST HITS VOL. II compilation, released in 1971. It was subsequently included in the triple LP compilation, MASTERPIECES.
Dylan's officially released version of the song is a live recording from his April 12, 1963, concert at New York's Town Hall. Dylan had recorded the song in December 1962 as a demo for M. Witmark & Sons, his publishing company. This particular recording, long available as a bootleg, was released by Columbia in 2010 on THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL 9: THE WITMARK DEMOS: 1962-1964. A studio version of the song, an outtake from the June 1970 sessions for NEW MORNING, has also been bootlegged.
It was covered by many artists, including Judy Collins, Rod Stewart and Elvis Presley.
