New Chart: “Roll On, John” by Bob Dylan


Here's a chart for Bob Dylan's mythical ode to John Lennon, "Roll On, John".

The song's structure--a long (7:25) series of alternating verse and chorus--is typical of his songwriting in the last decade. It has a similar feel to several of Joni Mitchell's songs on Hejira, namely "Song of Sharon," which is 8:40 of verses, one after the other. Their slow unfolding makes these kinds of songs great road-trip music.
