Monday morning, Joan Baez with the Bob Dylan song that took up a whole side of vinyl on the Dylan album, Blonde on Blonde.
Dylan’s wife at the time was Sara Lownds; but as for the rest of the lyrics, you’re on your own…
Singer Tom Waits said of “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands”: “This song can make you leave home, work on the railroad or marry a Gypsy.”

Woody Guthrie wrote it over 70 years ago, and Joan Baez sung this version about 30 years later. And it’s still more relevant and haunting than ever.

Awakened by a call in the middle of night. Monday morning it’s forgotten. Maybe.
One of my favorite pieces of songwriting.
