"Bob Dylan's 115th Dream" is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his fifth album, Bringing It All Back Home. In 2005, Mojo Magazine rated the song as the #68 greatest Bob Dylan song.

The song's title is an allusion to a previous Dylan song: "Bob Dylan's Dream". It begins with Dylan beginning to play the song alone after the rest of the band miss the entrance cue, before bursting into laughter and starting over; this was kept on the final recording. Bruce Langhorne recalls in No Direction Home:
[Dylan] was playing all by himself at first and then he stopped and everybody laughed; and then, two seconds later, he started it again and everybody came on, just bang, like Gang Busters.

The song is a satirical and highly surrealistic story where the narrator "discovers" the modern day United Statesmarker. The story also includes the character "Captain Arab" in reference to Captain Ahab from Moby-Dick.
