"My Back Pages" is a song written by Bob Dylan and included on his 1964 Another Side of Bob Dylan album (see 1964 in music). It is stylistically similar to his earlier folk protest songs and features Dylan's voice with an acoustic guitar accompaniment.

    the best part is that the melody is the same as "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll"

    I must be one of the few people that can't stand the 30th Anniversary Concert performance. It makes an amazing song sound bland and cheesy.

    Listening to the fourth studio album "Another Side Of Bob Dylan" released on August 8, 1964 and recorded in one day on June 9, 1964. In February 1964 Bob and three friends took a 22 day trip road trip from NYC to Californian in a station wagon for inspiration for this album. Panned by most major critics as Bob selling out the folk music scene, but Bob was just evolving in hindsight.

    I got a Dylan-Wannabe on my video side this time. He's okay. Dylan never sounded this f 'n sincere, warm & heartfelt as far as I'm concerned. I guess they switch these YouTube videos from time to time of Doctor Robert and the laymen. (Haha,sounds like a lost 1960's Benedictene Band) Jk

    The 30th Anniversary Concert version is beyond amazing. To see Roger Mcguinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, George Harrison singing this masterpiece with Bob is truly epic. I can't stop listening to it.

    really is one of those songs that becomes even more meaningful as you grow older - remember the words 'using ideas as my maps' striking a chord with me for the first time a few years ago

Lyrics

Crimson flames tied through my ears, rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads using ideas as my maps
\"We'll meet on edges, soon,\" said I, proud 'neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
