    Default Mr. Tambourine Man (I)

    Hi there.

    1. Is it OK to call someone a Mr. guitar man or piano man?

    2. "I'm branded on my feet."
    What does the quote mean? Is it a common usage?

    "the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming"
    3. Does the quote mean the writer gets fed up with his living environments? Doesn't have too much potential to grow. Is it a common usage?

    "My senses have been stripped"
    4. What does the quote mean? Is it a common usage?

    "wait only for my boot heels
    To be wanderin'"
    5. Why 'boot heels'? why not just 'boot'?

    "I'm ready for to fade
    Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
    I promise to go under it."
    6. Can you explain the quote to me. Are the usages common?


    Thanks in advance.

    A piano man is (informally) someone who plays the piano.
