People love the music of Bob Dylan for a variety of reasons, but I've discovered there are only 3 answers to the question, "D'you like Bob Dylan?"—
    1. "Yuck, no."
    2. "He's okay." (Translation: "I own Greatest Hits.")
    3. "He's absolutely fan-tabulous!"
If you only own 2 of Dylan's albums, 1 is almost certainly a gem. If not, there are 400+ Dylan songs from which to choose. "New Pony" is a song from Dylan's 1978 album Street Legal. Follow this link to listen to the song or read the lyrics. For your convenience, the Table of Contents links are at the bottom of each page.
