Dylan has been known to vary the lyrics of his songs, so the lyrics that you read on this website may not be the same as you have heard on an album, a bootleg, or live in concert. Unless otherwise specified, most of the Dylan-composed lyrics at this website are the versions heard on the officially-released albums. The cover song lyrics at this website may be the original version, Dylan's version, or even the version of another artist/group who covered the song. See individual cover song pages.

It's funny how things never turn out the way you had 'em planned ...
Oh, how true! The structure for this website has changed so many times since I began working on it in June, 1996. So it's only appropriate that the first person I thank is Ben Taylor, who has given me an incredible amount of help and information and has led me back on track countless times. I think I would have become discouraged a long time ago because of the numerous obstacles which have come in my path, and perhaps even given up this project, if it weren't for Ben to give me advice and help me decide new directions to take.
Several other EDLIS agents and rmd'ers have given me a significant amount of help as well, and I would like to let them know how much I appreciate it. All those with whom I have come into contact have been very willing to help, usually to a greater extent than merely answering whatever specific question I had posed.
A very special thanks to Angela Kweon — for the drawings, for my first Dylan album, and so much else. ¡Viva la revolución!
I would particularly like to acknowledge all of the songwriters whose songs are mistakenly labelled "traditional," for they receive no credit for their work.
Of course, I can't forget the center of this project, without whom this site would, of course, never have been created. Thank you, Mr. Dylan, for all your music has provided me.
In the words of Dobie Gray's "Drift Away":
Thanks for the joy that you've given me,
I want you know I believe in your song,
The rhythm and rhyme and harmony,
To help me along,
Making me strong ...
Hmmm ... I guess that's it. Hope you enjoy this site!
