Once upon a time you dressed so fine

About having to be scrounging for your next meal

As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes

About this song

Spearheading Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited (1965), Like A Rolling Stone tells a surrealistic fairytale of a girl falling from high society. Notable not only because of the new rock sound, but also because of its length (clocking in at just over 6 minutes, it was an extremely long track for the time), it became Dylan's biggest hit up till then, reaching #2 in the UK Pop Singles Charts. It quickly became a live favourite, most memorably perhaps as a closer for most of Dylan's 1966 World Tour (documented briliantly in The Bootleg Series, Volume 4: Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" ).
