The dust on is coat further symbolizes travel; the Grim Reaper would never be seen with a dirty cloak. The face like a mask shows that he has seen so much in his life that emotion has worn thin,like a man weary of so much experience. I dont have much to say about the preacher.
The Lunatic Legion
There are no mistakes in life. The journeyman took her with him, but not for a dark purpose. I think he saved her life. Treetrunks uprooted, smoke on water,added to the first stanza's mention of urricane breezes,makes me believe that something horrible hapened to the place where the girl lived. Maybe there was a storm and everything was destroyed,all her family died except for her,because the man saved her. The lone journeyman, in a dusty blackcoat, knew that this town was going to be destroyed.
He couldn't save the town,but one girl invited him to dance, and so she was the one he led away. It was no mistake that she survived,and when he brought her back, she was distrought, demanding to know why she had been the one saved, and not her friends and family.
But he was silent, resolutein his decision. He left, and she never told anyone what had happened. There was an error. I found out my own interpretation throgh this paragraph : "He said every man's conscience is vile and depraved, You cannot depend on it to be your guide When it's you who must keep it satisfied.

It ain't easy to swallow, it sticks in the throat There is some resignation when she goes, but also some kind of kidnapping, she left no "note even a note", not enthusiasm to go with him For me, the man in the long black coat and the young innocent woman are, both the same person: Robert Zimmerman, he and his soul. Two aspects: the innocent soul - and the slynees soul contaminate for the world. General Comment Here's my interpretation: There are crickets.
The crickets are chirping.
The Man in the Black Coat
There's water. The water is high. There's a dress. The dress is made out of cotton. It is soft. It's on a clothesline. It's dry.

There's a window. It's open. There are trees. They are Africa. They are bent over as a result of strong winds from a hurricane. There's was a woman there, but she left.
She didn't say goodbye to anybody, or leave behind a note regarding her destination or when she could be expected to return. She left there with a man. The man was wearing a coat. The coat is long and black. It's a bit of a stretch, but it works for me. No Replies Log in to reply.
General Comment This is the best song Dylan had written since 'In the Garden' overlooked track from the panned and totally ignored album 'Saved'. Yes, elements of 'paranoia' are there, but that's just the microscope talking. Very heavy track.

My Interpretation this song to me is very fleeting. Now, I was born in '86 but the music I grew up listening to was the music of decades before.. I think "brainwashed" would be the appropriate term to describe how this came about, as my parents has always made sure that I knew about their influences and what they like. I don't just love listening to music. I love reading about music, I love finding out about music, and what goes on behind the scenes. I love a really great use of a song in a film. I love making playlists and I love rummaging through other people's record collections and playlists as well.
