SPECIAL GUEST: BOB DYLAN ON THE SOUTH

Interviewer: When you think back to the Civil War, one thing you forget is that no battles except Gettysburg were fought in the North.

Dylan: Yeah. That’s what probably makes the Southern part of the country so different.

Interviewer: There is a certain sensibility, but I’m not sure how that connects.

Dylan: It must be the Southern air. It’s filled with rambling ghosts and disturbed spirits. They’re all screaming and forlorning. It’s like they are caught in some weird web–some purgatory between heaven and hell and they can’t rest. They can’t live, and they can’t die. It’s like they were cut off in their prime, wanting to tell somebody something. It’s all over the place. There are war fields everywhere … a lot of times even in people’s backyards.
