Performance History

Performed only once - in the Dylan/Dead set on 12th July 1987.

Played during the Dylan/Dead sets in 1987

Played at the Dylan/Dead rehearsals in May 87

Not performed by the Grateful Dead without Dylan.


First recorded by Dylan in December 1962 for the Witmark publishing company.

A working title for this during recording sessions was Lonesome Would Mean Nothing To Me.

Some Dylan scholars have suggested a link between this song and the 16th century English song Westron Winde, also known as O Western Wind. The link is based on the similarity of a couple of lines of the lyrics.
