After a long winter, a song for the unofficial first day of spring
Even the songs from Bob Dylan’s less-than-genius period in the late sixties and early seventies have something that only Dylan could have given them. I myself haven’t listened to this song in over 30 years, but today as I was walking around my neighborhood with a friend it came to mind. Unfortunately, all the YouTubes of Dylan recordings were taken off the Web some time ago, so I can only provide the lyrics. (Update: a reader has found a working recording.)
Normally winter is my favorite season and I don’t look forward to the beginning of spring. This year is different.
LA to John Dempsey, who found the recording online:
Thank you so much for finding this.John Dempsey replies:
My pleasure. This is the first time I have heard this song. It exudes confidence and optimism. Thank you for posting it.
