Here’s another of Dylan’s great early songs that I recorded last week. I used to know all the words, but I think I got most of them here. This song was another big Dylan hit. Franke Valli and the Four Seasons, as well as Johnny Cash and tons of others did covers on this song. Dylan plays it beautifully on the Freewheelin’ album. The story goes (this according to a PBS documentary) that Dylan didn’t perform this song in concert because he “gave” it to Ramblin’ Jack Elliot. Indeed Ramblin Jack always plays this one and always does it beautifully. I’m posting it here so that someone will join in and try to do this song too.
