Hurricane

Lyrics

Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night
Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall.
She sees the bartender in a pool of blood,
Cries out, "My God, they killed them all!"

Great song... One of Dylan's best!
Love it

Love this song
Dylan's version of events illustrated in the song is grossly inaccurate! For example, Ruben Carter was NOT the number one contender for the heavy weight crown that year. In fact his career was in serious decline. In 1963 he was 3rd, by 65 his record was 7-7 and he had fallen to 5th, and a few short months later in May 66 he was unranked!! And these are many more distortions that I would invite you to investigate. No doubt a good song. But just another instance of liberal propaganda promoting the
Dylan not listed as the writer? The music sounds like Jimmy Buffet deep into a 70s style set, far out, man.
Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes. The deaf can have both of my ears, if they don't mind the size- John Prine.
Robert Zimmerman He's my favorite Jew of all TIMES......

Get it together Pandora...th i s song was written by Dylan, not Florence Welch and Francis White

No one told stories like bob did. He was a champion

Another one of bobs greatest. Sweet
This is a beautiful song about a hideous injustice.
drialto43
lived in clifton right next door to Paterson when this went down one of the biggest injustices and coverups of the sixtes Dylan captures it to a tee song gives me chills everytime i hear it
Wooderson coming into the poolhall, this reminds me of that also. great movie. I get older, they stay the same age.

Kelli, Oops . I was going to say , buy albums from different parts of his career , start with HWY
Kellie , the more you listen to him the more you will like him. Don't listen to his music on the radio . Go and buty his albums and find
The 1st time I heard HURRICANE it hit me hard,real hard!!! I BOB has so much heart & passion WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY can't touch him- not even close!!!!
Wow! This is one of his songs that makes me wonder why I'm not more of a fan.

DeanB. here on Dave's computer . Great Violin by Scarlet Rivera. Check out her solo stuff.
@Jayson.elfk i n & Sonia Basso

The harmony vocals are Ronee Blakley and the drums are Howie Wyeth from the Rolling Thunder Review.
this is so true .
What a great f*&kn' song!
makes me think of Wooderson coming into the poolhall.
tracywarner3
this is why I love bob dylan
eloquent, biting and real
bischnou
This song is pure genius.
Wow, this song is pretty amazing. I'm not usually a fan of songs that deal directly with a particular current event, but this one manages to succeed as music in addition to making its point. Love the fiddle.

You can hear Dylan's contempt in his voice, and that really makes the song.
now that's a song right there!
who is the woman singing in the back?
Dreamscape - I agree, I love this song.
*bookmarked* Great song
