The 10 All-Time Best Bob Dylan Lyrics

“Like a Rolling Stone,” from Highway 61 Revisited, 1965

Key lyric: “You used to laugh about/ Everybody that was hanging out/ Now you don’t talk so loud/ Now you don’t seem so proud/ About having to be scrounging for your next meal”

And no, we weren’t gonna forget this — nearly half a century on, this brutal deconstruction of a silver-spoon society type who’s fallen from grace remains as cutting and relevant as ever. God only knows what its unnamed subject made of it — apparently the original version was 10 pages long, which probably would have incurred a full-fledged nervous breakdown.
