My Interpretation The first stanza brings a feeling of a small Soutern community, maybe somewhere near New Orleans?
It is a prequel of what happens in the song. Contrary to popular belief, i think the man in the long black coat is not Death, or Satan, or even dark at all. He hangs around the outskirts. I think he is a loner, a journeyman, someone who travels without a home.
The dust on is coat further symbolizes travel; the Grim Reaper would never be seen with a dirty cloak. The face like a mask shows that he has seen so much Man In The Long Black Coat - Bob Dylan - Lost Forgotten Years (CD) his life that emotion has worn thin,like a man weary of so much experience. I dont have much to say Man In The Long Black Coat - Bob Dylan - Lost Forgotten Years (CD) the preacher. There are no mistakes in life. The journeyman took her with him, but not for a dark purpose.
I think he saved her life. Treetrunks uprooted, smoke on water,added to the first stanza's mention of urricane breezes,makes me believe that something horrible hapened to the place where the girl lived. Maybe there was a storm and everything was destroyed,all her family died except for her,because the man saved her. The lone journeyman, in a dusty blackcoat, knew that this town was going to be destroyed.
He couldn't save the town,but one girl invited him to dance, and so she was the one he led away. It was no mistake that she survived,and when he brought her back, she was distrought, demanding to know why she had been the one saved, and not her friends and family. But he was silent, resolutein his decision. He left, and she never told anyone what had happened. There was an error. I found out my own interpretation throgh this paragraph : "He said every man's conscience is vile and depraved, You cannot depend on it to be your guide When it's you who must keep it satisfied.
