Words from Bob Dylan’s 1966 song Visions of Johanna, released on his album Blonde on Blonde. Written and performed when he was 24, several critics have acclaimed it as one of Dylan’s highest achievements in writing, praising the allusiveness and subtlety of the language. Rolling Stone included it on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 1999, Sir Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom, listed it as the greatest song lyric ever written.
