Jones Street: de straat waar Bob Dylan met Suze Rotolo gefotografeerd werd voor de cover van het album 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'.
Suze Rotolo beschreef later deze episode uit hun leven in haar boek 'A Freewheelin Time': "The sixties were an era that spoke a language of inquiry and curiosity and rebelliousness against the stifling and repressive political and social culture of the decade that preceded it. The new generation causing all the fuss was not driven by the market: we had something to say, not something to sell" bron: Suze Rotolo 2008, A Freewheelin' Time, p. 367.

Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's girlfriend in the early-Sixties, who walked arm-in-arm with the songwriter on the iconic cover of The Freehweelin' Bob Dylan, died  February 24th after a long illness. She was 67.  Rotolo was the muse behind many of Dylan's early love songs, including "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Boots of Spanish Leather" and "Tomorrow Is a Long Time". She was just 17 when they began dating in 1961, shortly after Dylan arrived in New York City. "I once loved a woman, a child I'm told", he wrote in "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right". "I gave her my heart, but she wanted my soul". bron: Rollingstone, 27 februari 2011.

'Don't Think Twice It's All Right'  Bob Dylan


It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It'll never do somehow
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's all right

So it ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
Like you never done before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
I can't hear you any more
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' walking down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don't think twice, it's all right

So long, honey baby
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right
