This changes all the time for me.

Right now, I'd have to say "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" (both the acoustic, and the Rolling Thunder Revue versions)

But "Tangled up in Blue", "Desolation Row", "Like a Rolling Stone", and "Idiot Wind" are up there too.

With God on Our Side has my fav Dylan lyrics...All Along The Watchtower is probably my fav overall song, although that's probably because of all the amazing covers of it over the years

"If You See Her, Say Hello"

There's no need to explain, nor to qualify, nor to debate. Calling it a masterpiece is hardly enough.

Word up...I prefer the raw version on The Bootleg Series Vol.1-3, because the lyric change on Blood on the Tracks sounds totally awkward ("...who always has respected her/for doin' what she did" becomes "...who always has respected her/for gettin' out and gettin' free", or something close to that).

My personal favorite has been Jokerman ever since Dylan opened his Woodstock '94 set with it. The album version sounds a bit dated with the 80's production and Sly & Robbie, but I admire his foray into reggae, and all the live versions from that '94 tour just fucking kill. The lyrics are some of his most evocative too.

Like a Rolling Stone has to be my favourite song but Subterranean Homesick Blues comes a close second. Bob Dylan

Lyrically, probably this. Musically it's a toss up between Like A Rolling Stone, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, and Highway 61 Revisited. (See a pattern emerging - best album ever!)
