The Times They Are A-Changin'
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command

But still no lines from Don't Think Twice (It's Alright), the best break-up song ever.

Um... aren't the lyrics from Girl From The North Country also in Scarborough Fair? You know, 'Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme! Remember me to one who lives there, she was once a true love of mine...' That's the only reason I got it.

Yes, and I have no problem with that one since many folk singers borrow from traditional songs, but I think Dylan crossed the line too many times into outright plagiarism. No idea why since much of his own poetry is brilliant.

I'm no expert and I don't believe everything I read on the 'net, but while looking for info on Dylan I found this which tarnished his halo for me:

I haven't read the whole article ander posted (not because I'm not interested but due to lack of time), but I also want to point out that Martin Luther King has been accused of plagiarism, even in his "I Have A Dream" speech. I don't think plagiarism makes that, or any speech, song, poem, etc. any less valuable. I think it's good that in recent years we've moved in a direction where we take plagiarism seriously, but I also don't think we should apply this retroactively and diminish the otherwise great accomplishments of people like King and Dylan. That's just my two cents.

My favorite Bob Dylan songs are "Visions of Johanna" and "Mississippi." I'm a fan of a lot of his work. I didn't know all the answers, though.
