Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form. “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”. Great images and poetry throughout the song.

    "This is your first listen to Bob Dylan." Absolutely correct, with the exception of the 83 previous scrobbles, plus the songs I'd removed from my library, such as this one. Sorry, feeling bitchy.

    There's a version on one of the Greatest Hits somewhere (I think... originally released on the Jerry McGuire soundtrack) that has an extra verse in the middle, yes.

    I always thought it was a middle of the road love song. Then I remembered it was Dylan and that makes it pretty effing special.

    Budokan/first half of 1978 version is definitely where it's at.
