T.H. MONK Dylan's best song..it has it all..booze,brothels,faithless women and the cruelties of society..a mini version of Desolation Row Jan 20, 2007
Benedict I love the version of this on the bootleg series vol 4 (live 1966). It is fairly surreal imagery, but it is hard to tell what this song is about by looking at the words, it's all in the way it is sung and played, which is near perfect on live1966 Sep 06, 2006
