jferdyk People - be a little poetic. Stop and listen. This song encompasses it all. This is the best Bob Dylan song ever. Why? I'll tell you. A troubadour is offering the ultimate life lesson which he has learned, to anyone open to hearing it. All the mysterious Dylan lyrics of other songs are here transformed. The lyrical message is now straightforward, and it is now the identity only of the storyteller which remains mysterious. But, it matters not. Let him just be "the troubadour." And in this transformation of mysterious lyric to mysterious teller, the mystery is stripped from the words themselves. Its a tale of love and life and truth. Accept it, if you can. Feb 22, 2009
