In Their Words: “I loved this song the first time I heard it and have never grown tired of it. Although it is written from the male perspective it touches upon the plight of a strong woman living in (what is still) a man’s world. Dylan was prescient in his understanding of so many of the dilemmas that have now become almost common knowledge. Butch, Joe, and I have shared an appreciation of Dylan’s artistry and wit from the beginning and after performing this for so many years I am happy to finally have a recorded version of it on a Flatlanders release.” — Jimmie Dale Gilmore

“From swapping songs sitting on some floor after midnight in Lubbock, Texas, to stage after stage from Italy to New Zealand, Jimmie’s voice and this song still echo the miles and smiles The Flatlanders have shared. This was always a great song to dream on.” — Butch Hancock
