  1. It is as I believe, let they who be without sin, let they be the first ones to get stoned. Oh yeah by the way, I as with so many others, did actually inhale. How about them apples? Also, do not forget the supercharge….All my thanks and blessings Mr. Dylan. Peace and Tranquility

  2. Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re trying to be so good
    They’ll stone ya just a-like they said they would
    They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to go home
    Then they’ll stone ya when you’re there all alone
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ ’long the street
    They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to keep your seat
    They’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ on the floor
    They’ll stone ya when you’re walkin’ to the door
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    They’ll stone ya when you’re at the breakfast table
    They’ll stone ya when you are young and able
    They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to make a buck
    They’ll stone ya and then they’ll say, “good luck”
    Tell ya what, I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    Well, they’ll stone you and say that it’s the end
    Then they’ll stone you and then they’ll come back again
    They’ll stone you when you’re riding in your car
    They’ll stone you when you’re playing your guitar
    Yes, but I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    Well, they’ll stone you when you walk all alone
    They’ll stone you when you are walking home
    They’ll stone you and then say you are brave
    They’ll stone you when you are set down in your grave
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

  3. The amount of idiots who are so easily brainlessly misdirected into thinking this song is about drug use instead of taking cruel abuse from an endless parade of assholes you'll encounter while drawing breath on planet Earth is as incredible as it is pathetic.

  4. I grew up in the Motown era. This song got just as much play as any Motown song in my House. We as kids loved it.

  5. A woman and her daughter sought refuge from the rain in Dylan's studio as he was recording. Dylan asked how old they were. Therefore #12 & 35

  6. I wish I could have been stoned to death by a mob who thought me to be a heretic than watch all these stones be robbed from people's graves: https://lootingchina.wordpress.com/buying-bis/ Its really killing me. And you people can't see a thing wrong, is this correct? Only I wrong to point out that people are being ROBBED, right? And its a form of stoning the heretic isn't it- but a kinder gentler nation we have now, who lets their victims be tortured for many, many more years and decades than just putting them out of their misery in a few minutes.

  7. Yeah, I am 70 now, lived thru all that and really don't remember much of the 60's and some of the 70's, because I WAS stoned, so technically I should only be 50, right ?

  9. Dylan responded to the controversy by announcing, during his May 27, 1966, performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London, "I never have and never will write a drug song."[8] According to Dylan critic Clinton Heylin, Dylan was determined to use a "fairly lame pun"—the idea of being physically stoned for committing a sin, as opposed to being stoned on "powerful medicine"—to avoid being banned on the radio. Given its Old Testament connotations, Heylin argued that the Salvation Army band backing becomes more appropriate. Heylin further suggested that the song's title is a Biblical reference, taken from the Book of Proverbs, "which contains a huge number of edicts for which one could genuinely get stoned". He suggested that the title "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" refers to chapter 27, verse 15 (in the King James Bible): "A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike."[1]

    Dylan critic Andrew Muir suggested that the sense of paranoia suggested by the recurring phrase "they'll stone you" is a reference to the hostile reaction of Dylan's audience to his new sound. "Dylan was 'being stoned' by audiences around the world for moving to Rock from Folk," wrote Muir, who also suggested the seemingly nonsensical verses of "Rainy Day Women" can be heard as allusions to social and political conflicts in the United States. For Muir, "They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to keep your seat" evokes the refusal of black people to move to the back of the busduring the civil rights struggle. For Muir, "They’ll stone you and then say you are brave / They’ll stone you when you are set down in your grave" reminds listeners that Dylan also wrote "Masters of War" and other "anti-militarism songs that mourned the waste of young men being sent off to be maimed or killed".[9]

    Muir quoted a comment Dylan made to New York radio host Bob Fass in 1986: "'Everybody must get stoned' is like when you go against the tide….you might in different times find yourself in an unfortunate situation and so to do what you believe in sometimes…. some people they just take offence to that. You can look through history and find that people have taken offence to people who come out with a different viewpoint on things."[9]

  10. They said they would, and they did. In Bible days if you got caught sinning you were to be stoned, who will cast the first stone?

  11. Need more of this music and less of the braindead violent trash that passes off as racket, I'm getting old I guess, Snoop Dogg and Cypress hill was my shit back in the 90s and it is making it's way to the oldies station,

  12. This only proves that obscurity is forever. The man was completely different than everyone in his field.

    edit: fucking goosebumps

  13. I'll always remember smoking weed with Mr Dylan in Oakland C.A. just because I knew the title to this wonderful wonderful song. Mr Dylan and I should do a music video for this song but the condition is I'm doing karaoke while him and I are smoking some Callie chronic

  15. Life got interesting when Bobby reached adolescence. He had been a quiet, introspective boy; Beatty says she expected him to become an English teacher. But at ten he started playing the guitar and soon Bob Dylan—he renamed himself for Dylan Thomas—was carrying his guitar from college campus to college campus, where he found both an audience and a reason to avoid going to high school. His mother was alternately angry and admiring. “There were lots of times when he was ready to come back to Minnesota,” Beatty recalls. “But he stuck with it. No one helped Bobby—they shut doors in his face, but no one helped him.” She watched his progress from afar—“and then, when he was ready for Carnegie Hall, he called us.” "'Everybody must get stoned' is like when you go against the tide….you might in different times find yourself in an unfortunate situation and so to do what you believe in sometimes…. some people they just take offence to that. You can look through history and find that people have taken offence to people who come out with a different viewpoint on things." "Dylan was 'being stoned' by audiences around the world for moving to Rock from Folk," wrote Muir, who also suggested the seemingly nonsensical verses of "Rainy Day

  19. I remember seeing Sammy Hagar many years ago and he opened the show with this classic. Y&T and Greg Rollie opened the show. Good fucking times!

  21. And my Mom is still trying to tell me that smoking weed is the cause of my prolonged diarrhea as well as psychosis. It could never be Bob, God, the Chinese and reality, no, no- it's got to be what I'm smoking even if I'm not smoking it for 5 out of 6 months! That whole conversation is making me psycho…

  22. A just spent 10 minutes trying to trace this song from my childhood- turned out 10 year old me thought it was everybody must get stolen

  23. Best line in the song:

    "They're stone you and then they'll say, "Good luck!"

    Many times in my life I have been yentzed over in one way or another, and after the yentzing the one who did the yentzign will wish me the best of luck.

  24. One more week until I can smoke some decent weed again! I'm pretty excited about that and passing out in my quiet house in a quiet neighborhood on a quiet street in a quiet town where all the young people move away from as soon as they can. Course there are two young families right next door but they don't really count since they have children with actual bedtimes. Latin America lacks these for their children, no matter how old nor young.

    I also almost lost an eye today- I bought some pulque at a Mexican bar and drank it for Thanksgiving instead of spending it with my family and to say "adios" to Latin America, but I only drank half of it last night. Today when I went to open the plastic water bottle they poured it into and start drinking at noon, I wasn't paying much attention to the build-up of pressure inside and the cap when loosened sounded like a gun shot and flew into the ceiling, just missing my face by an inch or two. Smoking weed is far less dangerous.
