Mr. Tambourine Man
“Mr. Tambourine Man” is a song by Bob Dylan which he performed on his 1965 album Bringing it All Back Home. The American group The Byrds also recorded a hit version of this song. The song is often interpreted to be about a drug experience, with the Tambourine Man representing a dealer, but there are some who question this reading.
