I want you
Dave Marsh on "I Want You:"
"...these lyrics aren't especially poetic anyway, though they are so obscurantist that you can play all kinds of games about what Dylan really means when he sings, " Now all your fathers they've gone down / True love, they've been without it / But all their daughters put me down / 'Cause I don't think about it." Having studied the disc in detail since I was sixteen, I can now state that this most likely means two things: 1) Dylan had found a clever rhyme; 2) he thought about it all the time, maybe even too much."
"obscurantist"? Really, Dave?
Doesn't using that word make him guilty of said offense?
Eh, for me, its worth it for the punch line.
It's one of Bob's very best singles - exuberant, kooky and simultaneously of its time and timeless.
