Brownsville girl, show me all around the world

from Bob Dylan – Brownsville Girl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The “Brownsville” of the song’s title is probably a real place:

The Brownsville referred to in the title of the song is likely Brownsville, Texas, a border town situated several hundred miles south of Corpus Christi, on the far reaches of the Rio Grande. This detail is disputable, as Dylan never makes explicit which Brownsville he may be referring to, but many of the geographical details point to a southwesterly locale…References to the Painted Desert of Arizona, The Alamo in Texas, Amarillo and Corpus Christi all point the careful listener to Texas as the most likely point of origin for the captivating subject of this song
