* TheDissTrack: "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" is a cutting indictment of a former lover.
-->Goodbye's too good a word, babe,
-->So I'll just say fare thee well.
-->I ain't saying you treated me unkind,
-->You could have done better but I don't mind,
-->You just kinda wasted all of my precious time,
-->But don't think twice, it's all right.


''The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'' is the second studio album by Music/BobDylan, released in 1963. It was the first Dylan album where his own material exceeded his covers. Widely acknowledged as Dylan's first masterpiece and one of his greatest albums overall it is best remembered for the hits and audience favourites "Blowin' In The Wind", "Masters Of War", "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", "Girl From The North Country" and "Don't Think Twice It's All Right". It's equally famous for its iconic cover photo of Dylan and his then-girlfriend walking down a UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity street.

"Rocks And Gravel", "Let Me Die In My Footsteps", "Gamblin' Willie's Dead Man's Hand" and "Talkin' John Birch Blues" were originally supposed to appear on the album, but [[ExecutiveMeddling against Dylan's wishes]], they were replaced at the last minute with "Girl From The North Country", "Masters Of War", "Talkin' World War III Blues" and "Bob Dylan's Dream".

* UncommonTime: "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" jumps around ''a lot'', but spends more time in 7/4 (or 21/8) than anything else. Many transcriptions just place the whole thing in ridiculously fast 3/4 just to avoid having to notate all the changes, but the song doesn't really play like 3/4.

* UncommonTime: "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna a-Gonna Fall" jumps around ''a lot'', but spends more time in 7/4 (or 21/8) than anything else. (There are also bars of 5/4 and 9/4 in the transitions to and from some of the choruses, plus a few measures of 4/4 in each chorus proper.) Many transcriptions just place the whole thing in ridiculously fast 3/4 (with patterns of mostly seven measures) just to avoid having to notate all the changes, but the song doesn't really play like 3/4.
3/4 - the chord changes are too important to the impact of the song and don't match up with such a fast tempo.
