here is what he said in the interview
His his song titled “Crossroads”, Bob Dylan tells the story of being at a crossroads with his soul. He falls to his knees, and pleads to “the lord” to help save his soul. From the lyrics, it would seem like he is referring to God. But the very last line says, “And I’m standing at the crossroads, believe I’m sinking down.” Most people believe that this “crossroads” Dylan is referring to is the same place that Robert Johnson once reportedly knelt down to offer his soul to the Devil in exchange for the success in his music career. Dylan had just as much success with his career, and continues to live as an icon in music history.
*During an interview, Bob Dylan makes reference to that very same bargain that he referenced in his song. He said, “It goes back to that destiny thing. I made a bargain with…it…a long time ago, and I’m holding up my end.” *
The interviewer seems a bit confused, and asked, “What was your bargain?”
“To get where I am now,” Dylan said.
*“Should I ask who you made the bargain with?” *
Dylan laughs, and stutters, “Ha, you know. With the- the- the y’know, with the Chief Commander.”
“On this Earth?”
“On this Earth, and in the world we can’t see.”’’
