Sheriff Brown Remember buying this album when it came out and this epic song is true cinematic Dylan, great vocals, great song. May 19, 2011
Rodimus Prime love the line "people don't do what they believe in, they do whats convenient and then they repent" so cynical, and so true. Feb 09, 2011
littleboylost love the line: "Well I'm standing in line in the rain to see a movie starring Gregory Peck" Apr 05, 2009
slumdog This album is the biggest pile if shite Dylan has done alongside "Self Portrait" and the compilation of other shite "DYLAN". Feb 17, 2009
CBMAN Fantastic story song that far and away outclasses everything else on the album. Sam Shepard deserves his due as well. Dec 20, 2008
burritobrother My all-time favorite Dylan track. From my favorite Dylan album as well, I know it's not a popular opinion but it is mine. Jan 13, 2008
Railroadgin Another amazing epic song that only Dylan could write. I think this song is about how life imitates art or vise versa. Many great lines such as "strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than those who are most content" Dec 23, 2007
