Joan Baez, “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands”

Joan Baez, “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” from Any Day Now: Songs for Bob Dylan, 1968.

Wow, I have heard this song title and I think I have heard of the song. It’s on one of his albums, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard it. This is definitely the first time I’ve ever heard the Baez cover. Dylan wrote the song for the woman he started dating after he broke up with Joan, which makes it particularly odd that she’s singing it here: a love song for the new girlfriend of her ex after she broke up with her ex.

Bob Dylan and Joan Baez made quite a couple. They were perfect together and perfect for each other. This was in the middle of the hippie era, which Dylan and Baez both embraced.
