Feb 12, 2017 Señor (Tales of Yankee Power) from Street Legal (1978)
Most of these comments ignore the song's subtitle, "Tales of Yankee Power." The song is all about fighting "for the empire," in one god-forsaken dessert or another, in an unending war. "She" in the song is "lady liberty," the "wicked wind still blowing 'cross the upper deck" is the legacy of slavery, and the "iron cross still hanging around her neck" is religious oppression. The "painted wagon" is a field ambulance with a red cross painted on its side. "Before I stripped and kneeled" IS a reference to torture, along with "disconnect these cables." "Seems like I've been down this way before," which has been repeated at the song's end by various artists, including Tim Obrien, emphasizes the unending nature of such hopeless "war on terror," In the 70's., it was Nicaragua. More recently, it's El Salvador, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, etc. etc. etc. Bubba

Dec 11, 2016 Señor (Tales of Yankee Power) from Street Legal (1978)
Most of Dylan's writings are not specific in meaning because the writer doesn't want them to be I will put my ideas down just as I saw them in my mind or while I was between awaken and asleep No need to bother explaining them to others, since talking to u is as good (bad) as talking to me of course humanity is striding towards self destruction and not peace, of course my ultimate desire will never come true, of course whatever happening on the upper deck is wicked and she will always feel burdened and the trivial march is playing, but I will remember what she said The fears and the futile wandering , the dragon and the gypsy, finally I'm getting all weary and consumed by every thing especially my own mumbling suffering and despair, so let me turn every thing upside down, the whole suffering is meaningless and the place also, where would I go ? aristophane
Dec 04, 2016 Shelter from the Storm from Blood On The Tracks (1975)
It was a long time ago when I first heard this song: there was a girl, of course, a girl who (I thought) wanted to play me for a fool, so I once told her "Did you ever gave me shelter from the storm, or were you the storm, and outside without you, my shelter". Of course time passed and she was just passing by. After many other failures and dispappointments, I've come to know that love is about someone being your storm and your shelter. Great song. Iago

Aug 30, 2015 Idiot Wind from The Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3 (1991)
This song (this version) is Dylan's greatest work. In my opinion. I was skeptical about it at first, having been so used to the BOTT version, but it gradually won me over after several listens. Furthermore, the ending lyrics make more sense with this mournful sound than they do with the aggressive, angry BOTT sound. There is more ambiguity and it actually feels like two people talking rather than just Dylan spouting insults (which is not to say that the latter is bad, it's not). And, best of all, I just love the way Dylan says "flies" (... buzzing around your eyes) in this version. I get goosebumps. Jake
