Bob Dylan's "Love Is Just a Four Letter Word" Performed by Earl Scruggs, Joan Baez, and Merle Watson


Above, again, this time con subtítulos en español, an indication of the beautiful music that might have been made together had only the hippies and the rednecks realized they were on the same side. Alack!

Gabriel García Márquez once said that the English translation of his Cien años de soledad was better than his own original; I'll leave it to the reader to decide whether the same can be said of the above translation of Mr. Dylan's lyrics, of which I confess to never having been able to make much sense.
