Queen Jane Approximately Lyrics

When your mother sends back all your invitations
And your father to your sister he explains
That you’re tired of yourself and all of your creations
Won’t you come see me queen jane, won’t you come see me queen jane
Now when all of the flower...

    Mary Jane, Sahra, Isabella. Lola, Girl, My Love, Lucy in the sky, Judy in the sky (with glasses) Hey Jude, Judy, Judy, Judy oh! Rudy Oh Ruby don't take your love to town, Untown girl with a back street boy, Mary Lou, Louise, Maybaline, Good Golly Miss Molly.....
    and on and on...
    One time I will say this...
    These are not figures associated with the performer and or writers personal life. The personal life can be the spark or inspriration for a song but the actuall song and text, if it has anything to do with Rock and all the endix' that follow the word..
    Hard, Psychedellic, Roll, Metal, Pop, Blues etc, then it's mostly the same He. she. or it. that all the songs are for and about. They use different names and it's sometimes male sometimes female, sometimes it's unclear because the one they sing to could have born anyone amywhere and could have been given any name.
    Sometimes it's the one singing to the other then it's the other way around. Why communicate through Love Letters put to music and why delivered by so many?
    *If only I could turn back the clock to when God and her were born" "...Now there's a Wall between us, something has been lost. I took her for granted, got my signals crossed" (Shelter from the storm)

    *Isabella, girl I'm fighting this war for the children the world and you, oh Isabella, Spill my blolod all for the love of you* Imagine a God having a wife who left him. *Don't put me so high I'm just a messenger" Jimi Hendrix

    you could be right, he did smoke the weed, but this song is about a female who has been found to be a fraud. possibly suze rotello's sister carla. she hated dylan and the feeling was mutual. carla actually broke up the romance by taking carla to europe. hence the song "Boots of Spanish Leather" the rotello family was doing quite well financially and thought dylan was a leech. when bob made it to the top, he wrote this; another "in your face" song along with rolling stone and 4th street. but that's only my opinion. he then started writing songs about sara

    The song is about Dylan himself and his own frustrations at that time. Queen Jane = Mary Jane = Marihuana. After all the crap he had to put up with from everybody, everywhere, he just wants to smoke dat Queen Jane man.

    Another great one. Right along the lines of "like a rolling stone" only softer
