If You See Her, Say Hello Lyrics

If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier
She left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear
Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow
She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so.

    I disagree. He wrote and released this song just a year after him and Baez drifted apart due to touring schedules. Then guess what? Immediately after this record was released, he did the Rolling Thunder Revue Tour with.... no other than Joan Baez.

    I recommend you watch the Scorcese doc about it. There is literally a scene back stage where Dylan says to Baez "Well you went a got married..." and Baez responds "You did first."

    Then they just stare at each other for a few moments and Joan breaks the silence with "I know you love the dress I have on tonight", knowing Bob was always to shy and insecure to make the first move.

    Its adorable and heartbreaking :(

    this song is quite easy to interpret. He misses a girl he was romantically involved with, but doesn't want her to know he still worries about her life and how she's doing. this is very similar to Girl rom the North Country, where everyone eventually knew was Echo Holdsten ? who he dated /used so he could listen to her father's record collection. she was quite good looking as seen in the pictures of her from her high school days. his care for her well being is not as deep as the care he feels for the girl in this song who probably is Suze Rotello, who was on the cover of his on Free wheeling Bob Dylan.walking with him on Jones St she is the same girl he wrote Boots of Spanish Leather about and either ballad in plain D or my back pages there isn't much evidence that it is about Sara Dylan
