She's got everything she needs, she's an artist,
She don't look back.
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist,
She don't look back.
She can take the dark out of the nighttime,
And paint the daytime black.

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
But you'll wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees.

She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall.
She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall.
She's nobody's child, the Law can't touch her at all.

She wears an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks.
She wears an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks.
She's a hypnotist collector, you are a walking antique.

Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
For Halloween give her a trumpet,
And for Christmas, buy her a drum.

    General CommentSo, basically...

    It's an apprecation for a woman who has the ability to make men "worship" her by keeping herself attractive, strong, and elusive instead of becoming overly-available and needy-clingy.

    General Commentyeah, its kind of the point, he is sort of poking fun at these kind of relationships were the woman is a user, and the dude is her servant because she is so beautiful/perfect or whatever.

    General CommentAnother Baez song - the key reference being her egyptian ring - describing both her independence, which appealed to Dylan, but also her need for reassurance
