How many people meeting Trump for the first time thought of this song?

You know it!  Before Bob came around with his harsh lyrics and re-tooling of the classic "love" song to include themes of despair and distaste, well it was mostly "hold my hand" or "so good together" type songs. 

And for all those who don't "get" Bob's songs; here's to you and your life without lost love!  I for one, having hurt and been hurt, unfortunately feel his songs right in my soul.  Like it was written by him, for me, and I wish I could also say "I don't get Bob's music."

Alas, here I am, more than 50 years after this came out, still feeling his pain and enjoying his parting shots.  PEACE and Long Live RP!!

Yes Bob but the only thing worse than "friends" is being alone
I suppose nowadays someone would call this Frenemies

Another Dylan track in which the title of the song is never in the lyrics. Rainy Day Women and others.

I don't recall where I heard it but seem to remember the lyrics were aimed at Richard & Mimi Fariña.

Wow!  Didn't know Johnny R. covered this.  I'm going to search for it on the interwebs right now.

Side note:

Why doesn't anybody remember Johnny Rivers these days?  He had a whole bunch of hits (some were covers), but they still sound nice on the rare occasion when I do hear one . 

 
Agreed!  Mountain of Love and Poor Side of Town come to mind.

After weeks and weeks of hanging around 
I finally got a job in New York town
In a bigger place, bigger money too 
Even joined the union and paid my dues

Now, a very great man once said
That some people rob you with a fountain pen
It don't take too long to find out 
Just what he was talking about
A lot of people don't have much food on their table
But they got a lot of forks and knives
And they gotta cut something

It'd be better as spoken word poetry, preferably by someone else.  One.

This is the most perfect line:

And now I know you're dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don't you understand
It's not my problem?
I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you

That is if I ever felt the need to tell someone just exactly that.  It is a classic line.

So if Bobby now decides to turn his back on RnR and go back to exclusively playing folk, does he write another 4th street to piss off all the RbR fans?

Ha!

I'm pretty sure this is 4th Street.

This song was evidently not written about the woman who 'discovered' His Bobness, but did introduce him to record producers, the public  the limelight and her stage, only to have him refuse her any of the same courtesies in return. 
After 44 years BD finally said he felt bad about the breakup (in Toronto} but notably, not to her. 

Now we need to hear Diamonds and Rust.

Aud, remember this sign when you walked in?  It was a great way to get two albums (usually about a year old or so) for about 5 bucks. You'd play them once or twice (unless it was "Never Mind the Bollocks", which will be 40 years old in 2017, but is still considered unsafe for ears here, there and everywhere) and then they'd get filed away for years!
