You raise up your head
And you ask, "Is this where it is?"
And somebody points to you and says
"It's his"
And you say, "What's mine?"
And somebody else says, "Where what is?"
And you say, "Oh my God
Am I here all alone?"

I have a homemade Bob Dylan wallet. Every time I pay for something, it starts a good conversation. He's the best song writer in the world, imho.

Ballard of a Thin Man -- one of the greatest songs of all time.

When Dylan heard about it he was so excited he was actually heard to speak clearly.

I've been listening to his program on XM where he takes a theme and then plays songs that relate to it. It's quite interesting and he really pulls out some obscure old songs from time to time. He really has been quite a songwriter. Not always the best person to sing his material, but I guess that's subjective.

Just wish The Band got the pulitzer, not just Dylan himself. Now that's some classic tunes right there...
