And you happened to call
And here I sit, hand on the telephone

Heading for a fall
As I remember your eyes
Were than robin's eggs

You brought me something
We both know what can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts

In the early 1960s, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan were involved in a romantic relationship. While Joan Baez had already made a name for herself, Dylan was relatively unknown and she wholeheartedly supported him and believed in his talent. In 1965, Dylan was called to tour England and asked Baez to go with him. While in England, Dylan broke Baez's heart by treating her like another groupie and musically and emotionally alienating himself. By the time they returned to the US, the relationship was over.
"Diamonds and Rust" was written by Joan Baez ten years later, in 1975, when, allegedly, Dylan called her in a state of emotional turmoil over the falling apart of his relationship with his wife. The phone call triggered long-suppressed feelings and a hauntingly beautiful ballad was born, delving into the complexities of love and hatred, memory, and the passage of time. It is still believed that the song reflects on her past relationship with Bob Dylan, but as Joan Baez explained herself, it is a tapestry of past relationships, disappointments, heartbreaks, and bittersweet nostalgia.
The juxtaposition of "diamonds" representing the enduring aspects of love and "rust" symbolizing the decay and betrayal that eventually tarnish the relationship creates a poignant contrast throughout the song.
"Diamonds and Rust" stands as a timeless classic, communicating to listeners its raw honesty and emotional depth.
