  1. dylan'ın okuyup (esasen okumayıp desem daha doğru) geçtiğimiz "üçüncü sayfa haberleri"nden derlediği sözlerle, inceden inceye kapsamlı bir toplumsal eleştiriye giriştiği, 1964 tarihli the times they are a-changin' albümünün dokuzuncu şarkısıdır. dylan'ın kişiliklerini konu alan i'm not there filminde de güzel yerde girer, christian bale'in sesinden dinleriz.

    sözlerin hepsini buraya almayacağım ama şu kısmı yeterli diye düşünüyorum:

    "hattie carroll was a maid in the kitchen
    she was fifty-one years old and gave birth to ten children
    who carried the dishes and took out the garbage
    and never sat once at the head of the table
    and didn't even talk to the people at the table
    who just cleaned up all the food from the table
    and emptied the ashtrays on a whole other level
    got killed by a blow, lay slain by a cane
    that sailed through the air and came down through the room
    doomed and determined to destroy all the gentle
    and she never done nothing to william zanzinger
    and you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears
    take the rag away from your face
    now ain't the time for your tears."
