ramblishoes I love this song too as comment above. The Frank Sinatra performance can be found on youtube. Jan 02, 2009
David Dixon This is a simple folk song. A young Dylan wrote it, sounding old. He has performed it very few times in public-less than ten. But do what you can to find a CD or DVD containing Bob's performance of the song at Frank Sinatra's 80th birthday part. He was singing it right to Frank, with all the intensity, sincerity, and vocal quality he could give. It is a lovely, lovely performance, full of the age and weariness that the lyrics had suggested 30 years earlier. It's a largely forgotten song, but his performances of it are rich indeed.
