Για αυτό το τραγούδι ο Dylan έχει κατηγορηθεί από απομνημονεύτων για τα εγκλήματα του “σεξισμού” και του “μισογυνισμού” . Γράφτηκε την χρονιά του υποτιθέμενου βιασμού, και κυκλοφόρησε με το άλμπουμ Blonde On Blonde το 1966.
Διαλέγω την βερσιόν από το Concert For Bangladesh – μαζί με τους George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Leon Russell.

Because of this song, Dylan had been accused, ages ago of “sexism” and “misogyny”. It was written in the year the alleged rape took place, and was released on the album Blonde On Blonde, in 1966.
I choose Dylan’s version from The Concert For Bangladesh – accompanied by George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Leon Russell.

❝ Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows that baby’s got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls
She takes just like a woman
Yes, she does, she makes love just like a woman
Yes, she does, and she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl
Queen Mary, she’s my friend
Yes, I believe I’ll go see her again
Nobody has to guess that baby can’t be blessed
‘Til she finally sees that she’s like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine, and her pearls
She takes just like a woman
Yes, she makes love just like a woman
Yes, she does, and she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl
It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what’s worse is this pain in here
I can’t stay in here
Ain’t it clear that I just can’t fit
Yes, I believe that it’s time for us to quit
But when we meet again, introduced as friends
Please don’t let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world
Ah, you fake just like a woman
Yes, you do, you make love just like a woman
Yes, you do, then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
