Nina Simone - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

Nina Simone's great cover of one of Bob Dylan's most poetically evocative songs.  It doesn't get much better than this.

Sweet Melinda
The peasants call her the goddess of gloom
She speaks good English
And she invites you up into her room
And you're so kind
And careful not to go to her too soon
And she takes your voice
And leaves you howling at the moon.
