  1. bob dylan'ın hayranlarının beklentilerinden bunaldığı bir dönemde, müziği bırakmayı düşündüğü bir sırada yazdığı ve kendi tabiriyle müziğe devam etmesini sağlayan muhteşem şarkı. 1965 tarihli highway 61 revisited albümünün ilk single'ı ve açılış şarkısıdır.

    sözleri aşağıdaki gibidir:

    once upon a time you dressed so fine
    threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?

    people call say 'beware doll, you're bound to fall'
    you thought they were all kidding you

    you used to laugh about,
    everybody that was hanging out,
    now you don't talk so loud,
    now you don't seem so proud,
    about having to be scrounging your next meal,

    how does it feel, how does it feel?
    to be without a home,
    like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone.

    ah you've gone to the finest schools, alright miss lonely
    but you know you only used to get juiced in it
    nobody's ever taught you how to live out on the street
    and now you're gonna have to get used to it

    you say you never compromise,
    with the mystery tramp, but now you realize
    he's not selling any alibis
    as you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
    and say do you want to make a deal?

    how does it feel, how does it feel?
    to be on your own, with no direction home
    a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

    ah you never turned around to see the frowns,
    on the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you,
    you never understood that it ain't no good
    you shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
    you used to ride on a chrome horse with your diplomat
    who carried on his shoulder a siamese cat
    ain't it hard when you discovered that
    he really wasn't where it's at
    after he took from you everything he could steal

    how does it feel, how does it feel?
    to have you on your own, with no direction home
    like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

    ahh princess on a steeple and all the pretty people
    they're all drinking, thinking that they've got it made
    exchanging all precious gifts
    but you better take your diamond ring, you better pawn it babe
    you used to be so amused
    at napoleon in rags and the language that he used
    go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
    when you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose
    you're invisible now, you've got no secrets to conceal

    how does it feel, ah how does it feel?
    to be on your own, with no direction home
    like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone
    pinot
