This is the version he plays on the David Letterman Show. It's in F here but it 
sounds good in any key.

I read a lot of negative comments posted under the different versions of the song on UG. I have seen Dylan perform this song several times and I'm not sure he has ever done it the same way twice. It seems to depend on with whom he is performing and the mood he is in. It also seems the chords used do not always follow the same progression when he switches keys. I assume that is done to accommodate his vocal range or that of whomever is singing with him.
My point being many of Dylan's songs evolved and changed as time passed and even the author allows himself to be creative when performing.
So I am not surprised there are a few very different versions of this song on UG.
