Listen: Rare Bob Dylan Recording: “I Can’t Leave Her Behind/ On A Rainy Afternoon”

When Bob Dylan and the Hawks toured the UK in 1966, Dylan worked on this song in a hotel room with Robbie Robertson. Some of that is in the D.A. Pennebaker film, Eat the Document.

It’s really a beautiful song. Enjoy.

Here’s some video footage of the same song:

And here are the chords and lyrics.

  1. I know this was posted a long time ago, but this song is so difficult to find. If you have anyway to find a recording of this song (Free or Pay) I’d be forever in your debt.
