* Some of the songs on ''The Times They Are a-Changin''', especially "The Ballad of Hollis Brown", when you consider that that kind of thing can often happen in real life, to say nothing of the real-life tragedies which inspired "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll", "Only a Pawn in Their Game", and the unreleased "Death of Emmett Till."
* The best example is probably just about every song on ''Blood on the Tracks,'' which was written shortly before (not after) his divorce. It is commonly considered to be a defining example of [[BreakupSong break-up music]].

* "Girl from the North Country", particularly the earlier version. A song about a lost love, it cuts to the heart.

* The last stanza of "Blowin' in the Wind":
-->How many times must a man look up\\
Before he can see the sky?\\
Yes, an' how many ears must one man have\\
Before he can hear people cry?\\
Yes, an' how many deaths will it take until he knows\\
That too many people have died?\\

** The song "I'm Not There" manages to be emotionally affecting even though it was only meant to be a rough demo with WordSaladLyrics.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFCqwedWHRk Sara]]" is, on its own, a well-written and melancholic love song. But realizing that it was one of the few songs that Bob Dylan wrote about his personal life -- in an attempt to salvage his failing marriage -- makes the emotion within it a lot more powerful. And then, you find out that it ''didn't work''.

** The original New York take of "You're a Big Girl Now" that was left off the album but later released on the ''Biograph'' box set. The musical setting is more spare and Dylan's vocal sounds much more heartbroken. When he sings "I hope that you can hear, hear me singing through these tears", he really does sound like he's about to cry.

* Similar to "Sara" is "Ballad in Plain D," another of Dylans's few songs about his personal life. Dylan reflects on his failed relationship with Suze Rotolo, coming to terms with the fact that it was as much his fault as anyone else's that it didn't work. The simple arrangement of voice, guitar, and harmonica means the song is positively ''dripping'' with regret and remorse, and it can be ''devastating'' to listen to if you're in the right (wrong?) frame of mind.

* Perhaps it's just me, but this troper finds the song "Billy 1" heartbreaking, especially the verse : " The businessmen from Taos want you to go down / They’ve hired Pat Garrett to force a showdown / Billy, don’t it make ya feel so low-down / To be shot down by the man who was your friend?"
