Rwurzbach you speak the truth. Of the hundreds of DYLAN'S recordings only a small percentage were covers. One could spend years researching DYLAN

@Coloring pages Bob Dylan covered this song. It is not his. This song is a traditional folk song dating back to the 18th century. The earliest recording is from the 1930s Dylan wasn't even born yet!

no one EVER sounded like eric burden and that organ! the two of them were like different instruments going at it. i remember driving around singing along. it was special. never got tired of hearing it, and don't ever forget We've to get to get out of this place. still gives me chills. you know it occurs to me these are all memories we all share collectively . we just need to mention a song and we all know and share its essence instantly. we become a sort of family.

Every time I look up the lyrics it says ''is when he's on a drunk''. That makes no sense. It's ''is when he's all drunk''.
