Another Side of Bob Dylan track listing

"I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)" is a 1964 song by Bob Dylan, from his fourth studio album, Another Side of Bob Dylan.

Dylan biographer Robert Shelton describes it as being about "the intoxication of a night of love followed by the throbbing headache of his partner's emotional abandonment and detachment."[1] Dylan, introducing it at his Halloween, 1964 performance (released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Bob Dylan Live 1964, Concert at Philharmonic Hall) said, "This is about all the people that say they've never seen you..."

Live versions of the song have also been released on Biograph (a performance recorded in Belfast on 6 May 1966), The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live 1966, The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert (recorded in Manchester on 17 May 1966; also released on Live 1961-2000: Thirty-Nine Years of Great Concert Performances), and The Last Waltz (recorded in San Francisco on 25 November 1976). The song was covered by Al Stewart on his 1972 album Orange.
