Story Behind the Song

A tribute to Bob Dylan's former girlfriend, Suze Rotolo, based on her memoir

Playlists this song is on:

Just like 1961, Those were the days when people had fun
Don't you know there were no smoking guns?
In those Minnesota blue jeans, you both looked so young

Just like 1961,You took his hand and you were on the run
Arm in arm, walking down Jones Street, You fell in love, but your life was not complete

Just like 1961, Your hopes and dreams, weren't far flung
There were so many possibilities, But you made up your mind
You were off to Italy

Just like 1961
Not a care in the world, under the Tuscan sun
Sending love letters Way 'cross the sea, In that moment in time
It felt so good to be free

Constantly you heard it said, that you were quite a pair
And don't you know, it was said, revolution was in the air
Even though your heart was true, the light was growing dim
They wanted a piece of you, just to get to him

Just like 1961, A life in the spotlight had just begun
You came back home and couldn't refuse
A chorus chimed in declaring--You were his muse

Just like 1961,You went along for the ride
Words like that sure stung,They took their jabs but you never fell
You had something to say, but never something to sell
(verse instrumental)

Just like 1961, There's an old song you sang
It's on the tip of my tongue
Strolling across old Washington Square
Where has the time gone? My you were quite a pair

One day I heard the news,And there were many tears
A generation cried,A world had disappeared
You reached your destination,A place for shining stars
Way cross the firmament, No string on his guitar

Just like 1961
Those were the days when people had fun
