Robert Allen Zimmerman
Bob Dylan (/ËˆdÉªlÉ™n/; born Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, artist, and writer. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he was both a chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements.
Thoughts on Songs with Bob Dylan

I think this is a very cool song. I always wondered about the meaning but with Dylan you never know for sure. Like the little neighbor boy at the end of this song who smiles and says "nothing is revealed"; classic Bob. My take is that its a parable about the importance of giving of yourself and the struggle Dylan has to reconcile being "good" with the temptations of the world, like the house he is led to with "4 and 20 windows, and a woman's face in every one."
