Well, in my time of dying don't want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Well, well, well
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Jesus gonna make up, Jesus gonna make up
Jesus gonna make up my dying bed

Well, meet me Jesus, meet me, meet me
in the middle of the air
If these wings should fail to me
Lord, won't you meet me with another pair
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Well, well, well
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Jesus gonna make up, Jesus gonna make up
Jesus gonna make up my dying bed

Lord, in my time of dying don't want nobody to cry
All I want you to do is take me when I die
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Well, well, well
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Jesus gonna make up, Jesus gonna make up
Jesus gonna make up my dying bed

'Dylan had never sung In My Time of Dyin' prior to this recording session. He does not recall where he first heard it. The guitar is fretted (i.e., he plays slide guitar) with the lipstick holder he borrowed from his girl, Suze Rotolo, who sat devotedly and wide-eyed through the recording session.'
-from the liner notes to 'Bob Dylan'

I've been listening a lot to that first album and I'm sincerely amazed by how damn good it is!!! This track might be my favorite. It's certainly the best blues of the first three albums easily...Bob's slide work is extremely mature for his age and his voice is pretty bad-ass....
He claimed later that he learned from a Josh White album which sounds true:

And here's 19 year old Bob's which I'd take over Led Zeppelin's any day:

What do we all think of this one folks???

It's too bad Hammond previewed the Robert Johnson LP for Dylan; I think it knocked him well off stride into material he couldn't convincingly convey. Then again it's hard for me to think of anybody especially convincing covering country blues.

Well this is a song that'll suck ya right inta Bob the man Dylan. Sheeet man, listen to that fun guitaristry and fantastically cooool vocal drive. Like letting a river take you down to who knows where in an ole beat up rig. Roll with it and it'll come back out your through your brains and lips begging you to put it back on. That's what I think.

I feel the same way about it. One of my favorites from his debut. I Love the Zeppelin version too, they each have their own thing and on different days in different moods, I may prefer each version, but Dylan's version is always a treasure to hear.

Finally!!

In My Time of Dyin'

THIS is the song that brought me to the wonder of Mr. D!!

I was a fan of Led Zeppelin as an early teen. Had a vinyl copy of Physical Graffiti. In the liner notes for the song In My Time of Dying it credited the song, Trad. Arrg. by B. Dylan.

I knew the name Bob Dylan but not much else. I was intrigued. I went to the local record store(when they still existed) to find Dylan's version.

Discovered it was on his debut. Bought that and just randomly picked BIABH and Blood on the Tracks.

The rest is history. :D

Zep's very best album in my opinion. Though I absolutely adore all 5 albums that preceded it as well. Led Zeppelin II would probably be my favorite other than Physical Graffiti, but it's definitely a bit overplayed. All of Zep's first 6 albums are Gold though.

According to the liner notes, he used Suze's lipstick holder.
