    Who let the riff-raff in?

    Swift – Dylan sounds like he says “tea” preacher, not “teen” and it is obviously a flub. In the BOB outtake of Memphis Blues he says “preacher” and in the official lyrics, it is “preacher.” I suspect he started to say “teacher” switched to “preacher” and figured it worked fine as Bob is notoriously sloppy in the studio … or at least once was back in the day.

    I think he’s the kind of lyricist/artist that is going to say whatever he feels at the time he is feeling it.

    Don’t forget the diplomat who wears on his shoulder a Siamese cat.

  7. Dave Says:

    Last Halloween my girlfriend and I dressed up as Lily and the Jack of Hearts

  8. Mr. Jones Says:

    The best Dylan costumne would be Einstein disguised as robin hood!

  9. cburrell Says:

    …carrying a trunk full of memories, yes. Immaculately frightful!

    How about going as the Girl From The North Country?

    “…Please see if she’s wearing a coat so warm,
    To keep her from the howlin’ winds.
    Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
    If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
    Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
    That’s the way I remember her best….”

    Now that is a lovely prospect, is it not?
