Senor, senor, can you tell me where we’re headin’? Lincoln County Road or Armageddon? Seems like I been down this way before. Is there any truth in that, senor?
– Bob Dylan
“One of the most interesting Street Legal songs is “Senor.” Dylan sings it magnificently, with real purpose, and the song’s melody is highly original and infectious. … “Senor” could have been one of Dylan’s finest songs of the 1970s. As it stands, however, it is an ambitious song which doesn’t quite come off.”
– Thomas Ward (allmusic)
I agree it is an interesting song, however I do not agree that it doesn’t “come off”, I love the song!
It has proven rather difficult to cover but there are some good ones out there. I have dug up six of the best.
