Bob Dylan covers Warren Zevon’s "Accidentally Like a Martyr"


The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder


Accidentally Like A Martyr is a well crafted, beautiful and powerful, poetic track from the late great Warren Zevon.

One of Warren’s greatest tracks.

Bob Dylan certainly thinks so!

Not only did his Bobness cover the song during the 2002 version of the Never Ending Tour, he also used a line from the song for the title of Time Out of Mind, his excellent Grammy winning album from 1997.

See below for a vid of Dylan covering this great classic Zevon song from a 2002 gig in Boston. Although the camera work isn’t great, the sound is good.

It’s fascinating to hear Bob’s take on the song. The band here are great. Especially Larry Campbell’s wonderful guitar work on the break and the beautiful “duelling” guitars effect with Bob’s Gumby imitation at the same time.

“Accidentally Like a Martyr” appeared on Excitable Boy, the third album by Warren Zevon, released in 1978. The album was produced by Jackson Browne with Waddy Wachtel.

This LP – the best-selling album of Zevon’s career- also includes Warren’s best known track, the top 40 hit “Werewolves of London.”

In a quite eclectic album, “Accidentally Like a Martyr” was one of the more straightforward tracks.

The best track on the album, “Accidentally Like a Martyr” is a beautiful powerful ballad about life, love, loss, pain and darkness.

Warren Zevon – Accidentally Like a Martyr

The phone don’t ring
And the sun refused to shine
Never thought I’d have to pay so dearly
For what was already mine
For such a long, long time

We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder

The days slide by
Should have done, should have done, we all sigh
Never thought I’d ever be so lonely
After such a long, long time
Time out of mind

We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder



Bob Dylan – “Accidentally Like a Martyr”
Boston, 2002
