    Take out the 'd' from "lady" and you have it.

    In both the '76 Houston and '77 Washington DC concerts, Randy adds "woah, yeah, yeah" on top of Don's "you got it, you got it" at the end of Best of My Love.

    The times I've seen the Eagles in Massachusetts, Don has changed the line in The Long Run to "All the debutantes in Boston, baby, couldn't hold a candle to you."

    I must have missed it too. I swear I heard God & he most definitely sang Jesus. In Fast Lane he did omit God.

    Re:GDIH, Ah, thanks. I knew it was something like that but that makes more sense now.

    They used to sing 'All the Debutantes in Houston couldn't hold a 'Camel' to you' during the LROOE tour and someone (Joe I think) used bring out a picture of a camel.

    I think Glenn too sang 'She gets up and pours herself a strong one, and stares out at the stars in the Brisbane sky' during a solo show in Brisbane once - FP do you know?

    I have seen that video.

    ETA: Here is the link https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jJcqIfXsgs0. Note the changes in the first verse of Take It Easy as well.

    That does sound familiar.

    ETA: It was at Expo 88 with LRB.
