In no particular order:

Shelter from the Storm
Man in a long Black Coat
Sweetheart like you
Highway 61 Revisited
If You See Her, Say Hello

Funny, I am one of older ones here, but except for Highway 61 Revisited and John Wesley Harding, I don't have much older Dylan. I like the period from Blood on the Tracks to Oh Mercy quite a bit. Also Dylan's stuff on the Last Waltz, especially Forever Young.

Visions of Johanna
Shelter From The Storm
I Want You
Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power)
Only a Pawn In Their Game

A bullet from the back of a bush took Medgar Evers' blood.
A finger fired the trigger to his name.
A handle hid out in the dark
A hand set the spark
Two eyes took the aim
Behind a man's brain
But he can't be blamed
He's only a pawn in their game.

A South politician preaches to the poor white man,
"You got more than the blacks, don't complain.
You're better than them, you been born with white skin," they explain.
And the Negro's name
Is used it is plain
For the politician's gain
As he rises to fame
And the poor white remains
On the caboose of the train
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid,
And the marshals and cops get the same,
But the poor white man's used in the hands of them all like a tool.
He's taught in his school
From the start by the rule
That the laws are with him
To protect his white skin
To keep up his hate
So he never thinks straight
'Bout the shape that he's in
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

From the poverty shacks, he looks from the cracks to the tracks,
And the hoof beats pound in his brain.
And he's taught how to walk in a pack
Shoot in the back
With his fist in a clinch
To hang and to lynch
To hide 'neath the hood
To kill with no pain
Like a dog on a chain
He ain't got no name
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caught.
They lowered him down as a king.
But when the shadowy sun sets on the one
That fired the gun
He'll see by his grave
On the stone that remains
Carved next to his name
His epitaph plain:
Only a pawn in their game.

1. A hard rains a-gonna fall

4. Mozambique
5. positively 4th st.


WOW....what, are you going for the "toughest question of the year" award? Hand the man his prize and keep moving, son!

This is a ridiculously untrue list, because as someone else said, the top 5 can change daily, but for today, at my present state of mind, I'd have to go with (in no particular order):

1. Visions of Johanna
2. Desolation Row
3. Like a Rolling Stone
4. Masterpiece
5. Hurricane

I feel hot, I'm going to go lay down now. But the thing I love most about Dylan is how he is able to describe things that we've all felt sooooooo well. With no disrespect to Robert Hunter, Dylan is the unrefuted, undisputed, best story teller ever.

Period.

My fave Dylan covered by Garcia & Kahn would have to be Going, Going, Gone.
