Bob Dylan - Man in the Long Black Coat (1989)

Hey folks, I'm back. I know that you've missed me. Well Phil has anyway.
I'm easing myself back in with a simple but beautiful tune by Bob Dylan from his 1989 album 'Oh Mercy'.
There's something about the main chord progression in Man in the Long Black Coat which just makes it stick in my head - quite basic but just really sweetly fleshed out with little guitar licks, violin, harmonica. Love it.

There's even a nice animation of the song's narrative in the video by this guy: Andy Colunga.
