Covers: Lost Highway

I have been watching Dont Look Back about Bob Dylan’s 1965 tour of England. There’s a scene where Dylan and Joan Baez performs the Hank Williams song “Lost Highway” in a hotel room. I always assumed Williams wrote it but it is a cover of a song by Leon Payne. I was shocked since most famous Williams songs were written by him.

It has the line “I’m a rolling stone”. I wonder if that was in Dylan’s thoughts when he wrote “Like a Rolling Stone”.
