he he.... yeah, they're good... thank you for posting.

i don't know how many fans realize that this was a bob dylan song well before bear mcreary decided to co-opt it for BSG?

the Lyrics can be dissected with eerie interpretations... it's a Song for All Time, IMHO.
I was completely in the dark at first. all the way back in the late 70s/early 80s when I first heard it, I thought it was Jimi Hendrix's original song, I was extremely surprised to here Bob Dylan's version
I think I had the same idea. Jimi's version was huge, and it was of course, Jimi.

Dave Mason, who played the 12 string guitar on Jimi's version, did the song himself.

Bob Dylan might be the most covered artist of all time. Probably quite a few songs people thought were someone else's just due to the popularity of the cover.
