The second release from the groundbreaking Mondo Scripto series continues Bob Dylan’s own selection of his most renowned lyrics, each originally handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by a pencil drawing.
Slipping the noose of expectation, whether romantic, artistic or societal, is an abiding theme in Dylan’s lyrics. Here the voice directly addresses a lover who is ‘lookin’ for someone/Never weak but always strong’ and who will ‘protect you an’ defend you/Whether you are right or wrong’. The title provides the response, coming down with the finality of a courtroom gavel. This first appeared in 1964 on Another Side Of Bob Dylan, as the songwriter’s focus began to bear down forcefully on the power balance and dynamics of emotional relationships.
