    it's incredible how his songwriting progressed between blonde on blonde and jwh. from "here i sit so patiently waiting to find out what price you have to pay to get out of going through all these things twice" to "there must be some way out of here"

    vv I hate how people overanalyze Dylan's lyrics. He wasn't singing about anything out of the ordinary at the time, especially if you consider the political and social climate at the time; the value comes from his particular choice of words to deliver his lyric (striking a tone that is both casual and extremely lyrical) and ability to deliver a common sentiment without sounding angsty or contrived. It's just a good tune, and Dylan wrote these songs as a means of expressing his own views of society, not for random nobodies to question their life's existence over it

    I'm at the point in my life where I prefer the original 1967 version over all others

    Great track! Heard Hendrix' version first, but I'm beginimng to prefer Dylan's version. Especially the version from Dylan's Budokan album.

    Heard Dylan play this live about 4 years ago. They did the Hendrix take on it, even with the distorted guitar solos and all. It was a awesome mash up.
