Dirt Road Blues

Bob's walking the road,
Hoping his baby comes back.
He'll hope forever.

In the second song from the 1997 album, "Time Out of Mind," Bob and his band play a grungy blues theme that hits the usual Dylan themes:

- Baby's gone, she won't come back.
- Bob goes wandering, hoping for a ride, just like Robert Johnson.
- He'll keep walking until his eyes bleed and he's been freed.
- He's looking for the sunny side of love, but getting rain and hail.
- He'll have to put up a barrier between himself and everyone else.
