"Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word"

OK, more 60's folk: Dylan penned this folk classic in '65 but never recorded it. The title is based upon a line from Tennessee Williams' "Camino Real". Joan Baez recorded it in '68 and it became one of her signature songs. She was with Dylan when he first heard her version on the radio and he remarked, "Hey, that's a great song!", having forgotten that he had written it (gotta love ol' Bob!).

Yesterday's answer: "Mr. Lee" by The Bobbettes.
