He retold his experience with a carnival where he worked and how it shaped him as a person.Talking about a song he composed at that time, Dylan said, "They had a freak show in it, all the midgets and all that kind of stuff. There's one lady in there, really bad shape. Like, her skin had been all burned and she was a little baby, didn't grow right, so she was like a freak. All these people would pay money to see. That really sort of got me. ... [Those performers] want to make you have two thoughts. They want to make you think that they don't feel bad about themselves and also, they want to make you feel sorry for them. I always liked that, and I wrote a song for her. It was called, 'Won't you Buy a Postcard.' Can't remember that one, though." He added that he however never recorded that song.
