Dylan singing about my city I live in now, Duluth - his place of birth

Bob Dylan will be 77 on May 24th, 2018
Something there is about you
Something there is about you that strikes a match
 in meIs it the way your body moves or is it the way your hair blows free?
Or is it because you remind me of something that used to be
Somethin' that crossed over from another century?
Thought I'd shaken the wonder and the phantoms of my youth
Rainy days on the Great Lakes, walkin' the hills of old Duluth.
There was me and Danny Lopez, cold eyes, black night and then there was Ruth 
Something there is about you that brings back a long-forgotten truth.
Suddenly I found you and the spirit in me sings
Don't have to look no further, you're the soul of many things.
I could say that I'd be faithful, I could say it in one sweet, easy breath
But to you that would be cruelty and to me it surely would be death.
Something there is about you that moves with style and grace
I was in a whirlwind, now I'm in some better place.
My hand's on the saber and you've picked up the baton
Somethin' there is about you that I can't quite put my finger on.
Songwriters: Bob Dylan
