I love this song. I transcribed it off the album (back when albums were vinyl), which apparently helped a lot in the learning process. It's worth noting that my version takes less time than the original (which is over 13 minutes long). I don't think I sing it faster than Dylan, but I do leave out the harmonica breaks.

I have no idea what it means, but for some reason it makes me think of Samuel R. Delaney's novel Dahlgren. I don't know what that means, either.
