In this song, The Winds of the Old Days, by Joan Baez, the last stanza is:

And get you down to the harbor now

Most of the sour grapes are gone from the bough

Ghosts of Johanna will visit you there

And the winds of the old days will blow through your hair

Who is Johanna?


Bob Dylan wrote a song called "Visions of Johanna" in 1965. Joan Baez was at the concert the first time he performed the song publicly and believed the lyrics referred to her. Presumably she is referring to herself in her song
