It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
Composer: Bob Dylan

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue was first performed by the Grateful Dead in 1966. The song was performed occasionally in the 1966 to 1974 period before disappearing from the repertoire. The song returned to the repertoire in 1981 after which it was performed every year through to 1995 though with decreasing frequency in the 1990's. It total the song was performed nearly 150 times by the Grateful Dead.

It's All Over Now, baby Blue was first recorded by Bob Dylan on January 13, 1965. The version that appears on Bringing It All Back Home was recorded on January 15, 1965.

In the notes for Biograph (1986) Dylan is quoted;

I had carried that song around in my head for a long time,and I remember that when I was writing it, I'd remembered a Gene Vincent song. It had always been one of my favorites, Baby Blue...`when first I met my baby, she said how do you do, she looked into my eyes and said... my name is Baby Blue.' It was one of the songs I used to sing back in High School. Of course, I was singing about a different Baby Blue.
