DYLAN COVER # 1 - Ronnie Drew and Eleanor Shanley - 'Restless Farewell and The Parting Glass'

Restless Farewell & The parting Glass - Ronnie Drew & Eleanor Shanley

Album - A Couple more years - 2001

So that is where Dylan borrowed the idea and melody from the song the 'Parting Glass'
I Just Love this one, the contrast between Eleanor's fragile vocals and the rough broge of
Ronnie's (Dubliners) voice. This has always been one of my favourite Dylan songs from the
'Times they are a Changin' album. Its about Dylan ready to move on to new pastures electric as well
as past loves and friends...'and the corner sign says its closing time' Think its time I moved on.
