    It devastates me every time. It's one of those songs you have never get over.

    "I'm takin' you with me, honey baby, when I go" <- you know how you have people whom you deeply love "with you" even if you haven't seen them in years, even? I guess that's what he's talkin about here. :/

    Right - that resonates with and clarifies the way I've heard it, Horse.

    There's absolutely no hope to be found here, it's the most devastating track on the record, the humbleness of the sound just shows how much he is willing to go, almost to the point of losing his self-respect, masking his immense pain. The final desperate outcry is the perfect example of this. Throughout the song the forced cheerfulness and humbleness crumbles and cracks and through these cracks the hidden suffering erupts. It's an outcry to nothing. There's no one he can talk to, because the supposed addressee doesn't care anyone. Just an endless recitation in his mind. Nobody cares. There's no answer, just misery.

    "I like your smile and your fingertips. I like the way that you move your lips. I like the cool way you look at me. Everything about you is bringing me misery." Great song to end a great album.

    It's just an amazing song, full of suffering and joy. Heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.

    wouldn't call this album lovely, more heartbreaking. just such a downer of an album. maybe that's why i don't listen to it so much anymore.

    It'd been some time since I listened to this album and when I played it in the day today, I was taking it for a discounted value. But, Dylan just closed the album with - "Life is sad, Life is a bust. All ya can do is do what you must. You do what you must do and ya do it well, I'll do it for you, honey baby, Can't you tell?" Hit like a bullet.

    I too did not notice the brilliance of this song until one day I understood it, and it just left me absolutely stunned. I disagree however with TheFatChobo, that this last cry is terrifying or desperate, or that it can be answered by going back to the beginning. For me, this song suggests a level of acceptance and moving forward. He is still obviously in tremendous pain, but he's starting to get over it. There is certainly a strange duality of pain and acceptance going on, and I don't think it is supposed to be clear which of these emotions is stronger.

    What a beautiful and haunting end to the album... I didn't notice it for a while, since the sound of the track is so resignedly cheerful, but it ends on such a striking, almost terrifying note. "I do it for you—oh, honey baby, can't you tell?" It's all in that final cry, that desperate, pained question which has to be answered only by turning right back to the first track... where the answer ain't pretty.
