Another interesting take on it, written a few years back on the site listed below:

The third track of the album, “Narrow Way” has a refrain which is multivalent but clearly references Jesus’ saying about the narrow way that leads to life (Matthew 7:13-14). In keeping with Christian teaching, the singer knows that he cannot possibly work his way up to God. He sings, “you’ll surely have to work down to me someday.” Dylan writes,


I've got a heavy stacked woman, with a smile on her face
And she has crowned, my soul with grace
I'm still hurting from an arrow, that pierced my chest
I'm gonna have to take my head, and bury it between your breasts
It's a long road, it's a long and narrow way
If I can't work up to you, you'll surely have to work down to me someday


Here the singer also compares himself to Saint Teresa of Avila, who is often depicted in ecstasy being stabbed in the breast by an Angel with an arrow. An image of the Saint graces the cover of the album. Indeed, the title of the record, Tempest, is more than just an allusion to Shakespeare’s play; it may also allude to the words of Teresa: “So it is, in truth; for I used frequently to recollect how our Lord, when the tempest arose, commanded the winds to be still over the sea.”

Might she be heavily stacked on account of her interior castle?

The official site also says: I won't even thing about, what I left behind, hear I won't even thinkabout, but that's just me. Sometimes I hear what I want to hear and it's completely off. Is thing even a verb? :lol: I'm kidding

Love this song. My favorite off Tempest (Pay In Blood being a slightly distant second).
... I'm also hopeful that he'll tackle it live at some point. Could picture it happing as one of those one-offs during an early part of a tour

Here's hoping 2018 sees the belated live debut of this Tempest corker.

Terrific analysis, thank you very much for sharing!

Yes , thank you , barefoot. Normally I'd refrain from any analysis of lyrics, but fortunately, I had a good professor for my 'Literature of the Bible ' class. I would think heavy stacked means something like the arrow that pierced the singer's chest.

It reminds me of a song by Robert Hunter called 'Aim at the Heart'. I didn't really pay too much attention to that professor .

Heavy stacked woman... The woman is seriously built. Think brick house.

Cake walk. Y'all never been to a cake walk game at a church pot luck? Maybe it's just a Midwest thing (though I think it originates in the south?). Although in this instance I think Bob is still thinking about how stacked this woman's"cake" is. Lots of layers. Thick icing. Too sweet but who doesn't like to eat cake?

Shake a hand and move yer feet. The Narrow Way has one sweet beat. I love it. Want to hear it live when Bob returns to the Windy City (this autumn or winter?).

This is really an ultimate Bob song which is why i named myself that.

In the courtyard of the golden sun
You stand and fight or you break and run
You went and lost your lovely head for a drink of wine and a crust of bread


Wow !

I don't even have 300 posts and I am so humbled I already have a fan club.

Yes, I'm kidding. Yes this is a great song.
