Just Like a Woman

(„Blonde on Blonde”, 1966 Columbia)
słowa i muzyka: Bob Dylan
       E       A     H7    E

Nobody feels any pain

              A   H7            E

Tonight as I stand inside the rain

A                     H7

Everybody knows

            A7                      H7

That Baby's got new clothes

         A   gis     fis  E         H7

But late-ly     I   see her ribbons and her bows

            cis               E     A   H11   |  H7  |  H9  |  H7

Have fallen from her curls


H7    E      gis   fis   E   A

She takes just like a woman, yes, she does

           E       gis   fis   E          A

She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does

          E    gis   fis     E          A    

And she aches just like a woman

        H11    H7          H9     H7  E         (  E A H A H E  )

But she breaks just like a little  girl.

Verse 2


Queen Mary, she's my friend.

Yes I believe I'll go see her again.

Noboby has to guess,

That baby can't be blessed,

'Till she finally sees that she's like all the rest.

With her fog,

Her amphetamines

And her pearls




It was raining from the first


And I was dying of thirst


So I came in here


And you long time curse hurts


But whats worse is this pain in here

H11       H7        H9  H6 

 I can't stay in here

H11      H7   H9 H7

Ain't it   clear that


Verse 3

I just can't fit.

Yes I believe it's time for us to quit.

And when we meet again,

Introduced as friends,

Please don't let on that you knew me when,

I was hungry,

And it was your world then.

Chorus   | A E A H | E

Just Like a Woman is a 1966 song written by Bob Dylan. It appears on the second side of his classic 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. It was released as a single in the US and peaked at #33. The magazine Rolling Stone ranked the song as number 230 in their 500 Greatest Songs of All Time
Dylan wrote this ballad on Thanksgiving Day 1965 while touring in Kansas City. It was allegedly inspired by New York socialite Edie Sedgwick, who frequented Andy Warhol's Factory at around the same time Dylan was introduced to Warhol and had a tendency to catch the attention of musicians (The Velvet Underground's Lou Reed wrote „Femme Fatale” about Sedgwick at about the same time, released on 1967's The Velvet Underground & Nico).
”Just Like A Woman” has also been rumored to be written about Dylan's relationship with fellow folk singer Joan Baez. In particular, the lines „Please don't let on that you knew me when/ I was hungry and it was your world” seem to refer to the early days of their relationship, when Baez was more famous than Dylan.
The song has been criticized for supposed misogyny in its lyrics. Alan Rinzler, in his book Bob Dylan: The Illustrated Record, describes the song as „a devastating character assassination…the most sardonic, nastiest of all Dylan's putdowns of former lovers. In 1971 New York Times writer Marion Meade wrote that „there's no more complete catalogue of sexist slurs,” and that in the song Dylan „defines women's natural traits as greed, hypocrisy, whining and hysteria.” Dylan biographer Robert Shelton noted that „the title is a male platitude that justifiably angers women,” although Shelton believed that „Dylan is ironically toying with that platitude.”
However, music critic Paul Williams, in his book Bob Dylan: Performing Artist, Book One 1960 - 1973, has countered by pointing out that the song is sung in an affectionate tone from beginning to end. He further comments on Dylan's singing by saying that „there's never a moment in the song, despite the little digs and the confessions of pain, when you can't hear the love in his voice.” Williams also contends that a central theme of the song is the power that the woman has over Dylan as evidenced by the lines „I was hungry and it was your world.” Bill Janovitz, in his Allmusic review has noted that in the context of the song, Dylan „seems on the defensive…as if he has been accused of causing the woman's breakdown. But he takes some of the blame as well; he was clearly taken by the woman at first, but apparently matured a little and saw through 'her fog, her amphetamine, and her pearls.'” Janovitz concludes by noting that „It is certainly not misogynist to look at a personal relationship from the point of view of one of those involved, be it man or woman. There is nothing in the text to suggest that Dylan has a disrespect for, much less an irrational hatred of, women in general.”
Dylan played the song at George Harrison and Ravi Shankar's Concert for Bangladesh in 1971.
This song was not released as a single in the UK. Manfred Mann's version hit #10 there in 1966.
