Considering the sound of the song is a throwback to the early days of Rock n' Roll particularly the rockabilly sound, the King might very well be Elvis Presley. “proposing a toast to the King” perhaps Dylan saluting Elvis with a rockabilly song of his own? Strong possibility. We know that Elvis was very important to Bob.
