    1963*, dylan was 22 not 12, and it’s spanish not italian, and it’s boots
    not shoes, fml.

    God gave women physical beauty but he gave men the beauty of romantic soul
    …………. I think men are the real romantics ……. who writes most of
    the romantic poetry and ballads ?? There are always exceptions and we all
    have different talents but this is my experience in life up till now

    How this song makes me cry every time i hear it actually amazes me

  6. Mickey Tenenbaum says:

    By the way ……….. y’all have noticed that Dylan completely stole
    “Boots of Spanish Leather” (from himself)? It is a remake of “Girl From
    The North Country.” Try to sing one of them with Dylan singing the other
    — pretty much the same tune, same chords, same meter, you name it. Who
    better for him to steal from?

    how would it be possible to improve on perfection – wow

  8. Shane McFee says:

    very very good. however most folks have heard this song…… I wanna see
    Patty Smith version…with that guy..

  9. Mickey Tenenbaum says:

    This just gives me the chills. Right after this song was released in the
    Summer of ’64 (Times They Are A Changin Album) my sweetie sailed (flew)
    away to Madrid for four months (semester abroad). I was so sad! I played
    this song over and over again, just to make sure that I was still sad.
    Unlike the girl in the song, my sweetie came back — brought me a guitar,
    not boots. We got married two years later, still married. 

  10. Tom DelFavero says:

    no, this was 1953 when he was 12. He wanted those boots because it was so
    cold in the north country. Which is why he used the same chords and melody
    for Girl from the North Country… I’m pretty sure…. But with Dylan its
    hard to tell. He’s from outer space.

  16. tyler mullins says:

    Dylan was only 8 years old in 1953 he was born in may of 1945
    this is probably 1964 or 65

    1953. huh?

  22. Macangusagain says:

    an amazing early creation by the finest poet-songwriter ever to live in
    America, thank goodness there was a Robert Zimmerman,who became Bob Dylan,a
    spectacular musical poet laureate to the entire world and easily without
    equal-ever !!!
