Great song about the violent events surrounding the admission of James Meredith into the University of Mississippi in 1962. Written by Mr. Bob Dylan, also in 1962 (age 21), and included on The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. I recorded a version of it last night (my 32nd birthday) after everyone went to sleep. Sometimes I have to do this to keep myself from playing a song hundreds of times. It’s hard to explain. A sort of compulsion.
