    My mother had the album Street Legal on record...she loved the song Baby Please Stop Crying but didn't really listen/know the songs on the flip side...I did listen to them...and loved's a great album..this ^ is one of my favorite songs ever....but I haven't a clue what it means....

    Any other Bob Dylan fans have an insight or opinion on this song? ....

    It's just before the religious 1979-1981 era

    Some sort of apocalypse I think

    "I’ve moved your mountains and marked your cards

    But Eden is burning, either getting ready for elimination

    Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards”

    Or else a historical event - Joan of Arc has been mentioned by some.

    His Bootleg Series of box sets hasn't captured this period yet - will be interesting when they do.
