Subject: Dylan's Silvio ==> Silvio Rodriguez?
Date: Fri, 30 May 1997
This came up last summer and I e-mailed Robert Hunter asking him this question (he wrote the lyrics), and he said he's never heard of Silvio Rodriguez and Dylan took the lyrics from his notebook (while visiting) and put them to music.
