    FYI: It's "uptighten you", not "tighten you".

    No, and I ain't lookin' to fight with you
    Frighten you or uptighten you
    Drag you down or drain you down
    Chain you down or bring you down
    All I really want to do
    Is, baby, be friends with you

    The first two lines of this last verse always crack me up. You have to know something about Moby Dick, and understand that "Arab" is "Ahab."

    "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream" (excerpt):

    Well, the last I heard of Arab, he was stuck on a whale
    That was married to the deputy sheriff of the jail
    But the funniest thing was, when I was leavin' the bay
    I saw three ships a-sailin', they were all heading my way
    I asked the captain what his name was
    And how come he didn't drive a truck
    He said his name was Columbus, I just said, "Good luck"

    I really want to comment in a way that shows what I'm feeling, here, but I guess I'll just let it go.

    Remember me (When the Candle Lights are Gleaming)



    Lyrics
    Remember Me

    The sweetest songs are sung by lovers in the moonlight, The sweetest days are the days that used to be. The saddest words I ever heard were words of parting When you said "Sweetheart, remember me."

    Remember me when the candle lights are gleamin', Remember me at the close of a long, long day. Just be so sweet when all alone you're dreamin' Just to know you still remember me.

    A brighter face may take my place when we're apart, dear, A brighter smile an' a love more bold and free. But in the end, fair weather friends may break your heart, dear. An' if they do, sweetheart, remember me.

    Remember me when the candle lights are gleamin', Remember me at the close of a long, long day. Just to be so sweet when all alone you're dreamin' Just to know you still remember me.

    You told me once you were mine alone forever, You were mine till the end of eternity. But now it's over, dear, and we can never Be the same except in memory.

    Remember me when the candle lights are gleamin', Remember me at the close of a long, long day. Just be so sweet when all alone you're dreamin' Just to know you still remember me.

    I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk.

    "Sometimes I find it hard to believe that Dylan watched Martin Luther King Jr. give his "I Have A Dream" speech in person, and performed at the very podium it was given at".

    "Here's a twenty-two-year-old Bob Dylan singing his controversial song about the assassination of Medgar Evers. This footage was ripped losslessly directly from tape, and the audio beginning at eleven seconds is dubbed with the officially released version from "The 50th Anniversary Collection 1963." Enjoy this gem while you can"!

    He can sing well if he's so inclined.

    My comment was an obscure reference to a line from a tune by The Band, who were once Dylan's backup band.
