Bob Dylan ( /ˈdɪlən/; born Robert Allen Zimmerman; May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, poet and artist. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements.

Katie's been gone since the spring time
She wrote one time and sent her love
Katie's been gone for such a long time now
I wonder what kind of love she's thinkin' of
If you can hear me
I can't wait to have ya near me
Dear, Katie, since ya caught that bus
Well, I don't know how things are with us
I'm still here and you're out there (somewhere)
Katie laughed when I said I was lonely
She said, there's no need to feel that way
Katie said that I was her only one
But then I wonder why she didn't want to stay
Dear Katie, if I am the only one
How much longer will you be gone?
Oh, Katie, won't ya tell me straight
How much longer do I have to wait?
I believe you
But please come through
I know it's wrong to be apart this long
You should be here, near me
Katie's been gone and now her face is slowly fading from my mind
She's gone to find some newer places
Left the old life far behind
Dear Katie, don't ya miss your home?
I don't see why you had to roam
Dear Katie, since you've been away
I lose a little something every day
I need you here, but you're still out there
Dear Katie, please drop me a line
Just write, love, tell me you're fine
Oh, Katie, if you can hear me
I just can't wait to have you near me
I can only think
Where are you?
What ya do? Maybe there's someone new
