"You're a Big Girl Now" is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his 15th studio album, Blood on the Tracks, in 1975. It is one of five songs on the album that Dylan initially recorded in New York City in September 1974 and then re-recorded in Minneapolis in December that year. The latter recording, made on December 27, 1974, became the album track.
Individual outtakes of "You're a Big Girl Now" from the New York sessions were released in 1985 on the compilation Biograph and in 2018 on the single-CD and 2-LP versions of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14: More Blood, More Tracks, while the complete New York sessions were released on the deluxe edition of the latter album. The deluxe version of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 also included a remix of the December 1974 master issued on Blood on the Tracks.
A live version of the song, recorded on May 23, 1976, appeared on Hard Rain.
The sentence "Love is so simple, to quote a phrase" refers to one song of the group The Dells "Love Is So Simple".
