  • bob dylan'ın 6. albümüdür, dylan'ın artık klasikleştiğinin kanıtıdır, nitekim kendisi ilk best of' unu bu albümden sonra çıkarmıştır. track list'i şöyle gider:

    like a rolling stone
    tombstone blues
    it takes a lot to laugh it takes a train to cry
    from a buick 6
    ballad of a thin man
    queen jane approximately
    highway 61 revisited
    just like tom thumb's blues
    desolation row
  • tanrı'nın abraham'dan oğlu kurban etmesini istemesine (genesis 22) değinir.
  • şarkının en büyük önemi herhalde yaptığı küstah,ben merkezci tanrı tanımıdır.
  • sözleri de şöyledir:

    oh god said to abraham, "kill me a son"
    abe says, "man, you must be puttin' me on"
    god say, "no." abe say, "what?"
    god say, "you can do what you want abe, but
    the next time you see me comin' you better run"
    well abe says, "where do you want this killin' done?"
    god says, "out on highway 61."

    well georgia sam he had a bloody nose
    welfare department they wouldn't give him no clothes
    he asked poor howard where can i go
    howard said there's only one place i know
    sam said tell me quick man i got to run
    0l' howard just pointed with his gun
    and said that way down on highway 61.

    well mack the finger said to louie the king
    i got forty red white and blue shoe strings
    and a thousand telephones that don't ring
    do you know where i can get rid of these things
    and louie the king said let me think for a minute son
    and he said yes i think it can be easily done
    just take everything down to highway 61.

    now the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
    told the first father that things weren't right
    my complexion she said is much too white
    he said come here and step into the light he says hmm you're right
    let me tell the second mother this has been done
    but the second mother was with the seventh son
    and they were both out on highway 61.

    now the rovin' gambler he was very bored
    he was tryin' to create a next world war
    he found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
    he said i never engaged in this kind of thing before
    but yes i think it can be very easily done
    we'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
    and have it on highway 61.

  • tanrı dedi ki ibrahim'e;
    bana bir oğul öldür herhangi bir oğul,
    ibrahim dedi ki, benimle dalga geçiyor olmalısın
    tanrı hayır! dedi, ibrahim nasıl?
    tanrı şöyle devam etti: istediğini yapabilirsin ibrahim ne de olsa özgür irade var.
    ama kafanı kırarım gerekirse, özgürlük nereye kadar?
    ibrahim pes etti: bu cinayeti nerede işleyeyim istersin?
    tanrı konuyu kapattı: on highway 61!
