So then I figured, I wonder what else is in that gem of a damn song (im sorry I went to school for Literature).

In what is argueably the quintessential folk song, have you picked out anything that could help peice this peice together (do you see what I did there)? I think this song deserves its own thread, though my threads are often deleted (ill find you )
Seriously? Quintessential? The song isn't that great. "Dylan is the jester, the king is elvis, satan is jaggar". What the ****, that's just stupid.

Wouldn't you think the quintessential folk song would be something like House Of The Rising Sun or Turn Turn Turn?

Uh, even if you think he's more talented (Lol) Dylan's just in a different league in terms of discography...

explain how discography defines leagues of music? I can't really see the relevance.
