A sure sign of genius?
 
make it 4 to 3... sucko-barfos take the lead

Eccentricity of delivery is still just that , even when the populace's collective ear is finally attuned to it.
One of the classic songs of the rock and roll canon.

I also love Chrissie Hynde's version.

  Zero decent ratings, tho' - make what you will of that.

Or at the very least creativity though I have seen a lot of songs that I have given 1s and others have given 10s and I thought the song in question was just horrible and not very creative. However, in the case of this song, it's genius man!{#Meditate}

Such simplicity, such yearning. Hard to imagine that an ordinary human can get such a plain instrument, as Dylan's voice surely is, to be so plaintive. And the guitar, it weeps with him. Amazing.
Perhaps he should have stopped at 'Greatest Hits I' because this is bad.{#Roflol}
Really makes me miss Jerry - Bob should hang on to his pen and stay the hell away from the guitar.
Now, this is a good example of a Dylan song that is generally improved by others.
Bobby at his best. 10
