"Got My Mind Made Up" as written by and Tom Petty....

Don't ever try to change me,
I been in this thing too long.
There's nothin' you can say or do
To make me think I'm wrong.

Well, I'm goin' off to Libya,
There's a guy I gotta see.
He's been living there three years now,
In an oil refinery.
I've got my mind made up.
Oh, I 've got my mind made up.

Call your Ma in Tallahassee
Tell her her baby's on the line.
Tell her not to worry
Everything is gonna be fine.

Well, I gave you all my money
All my connections, too.
There ain't nothin' in this world, girl
You can say I didn't give to you.
I've got my mind made up.
I've got my mind made up.

You will be alright, girl,
Someone's watchin' over you.
He won't do nothin' to you
Baby that I wouldn't do.

Well, if you don't want to see me,
Look the other way.
You don't have to feed me,
I ain't your dog that's gone astray.
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up

    General CommentAn amazing song that is a harbinger of the period of amazing blues-rooted folk music that Dylan has recently displayed in his current 1997-Present period. Got My Mind Made Up is a sort of follow-up to "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking". He's changed his way of thinking. His mind is made up. And he's saying he doesn't have to change his beliefs just to appeal to his old fans.

    "If you don't want to see me, Look the other way. You don't have to feed me, I ain't your dog that's gone astray."
