So even though Dylan won a Nobel Prize for Literature, his poetry is meant to be sung, not read. So I wrote these down and realized they just don't have the same power as they do when someone sings them. But I spent like 30 minutes writing this so I'm publishing anyway 😬
  1. Cinderella, she seems so easy “It takes one to know one,” she smiles And puts her hands in her back pockets Bette Davis style
    From Desolation Row
  2. She was standing there in back of my chair Said to me, “Don’t I know your name?” I muttered somethin’ underneath my breath She studied the lines on my face I must admit I felt a little uneasy When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe Tangled up in blue
    From Tangled Up In Blue
  3. I’ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies I ain’t looking for nothing in anyone’s eyes Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
    From Not Dark Yet
  4. There’s no need for anger There’s no need for blame There’s nothing to prove Ev’rything’s still the same Just a table standing empty by the edge of the sea. Farewell Angelina. The sky is falling and I must leave
    From Farewell, Angelina
  5. I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea Sometimes I turn, there’s someone there, other times it’s only me I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand
    From Every Grain of Sand
  6. Life is sad Life is a bust All ya can do is do what you must You do what you must do and ya do it well I'll do it for you honey baby Can't you tell?
    From Buckets of Rain
  7. I'll eat when I'm hungry Drink when I'm dry And live my life on the square And even if the flesh falls off of my face I know someone will be there to care.
    From Standing in the Doorway
  8. Last night I danced with a stranger But she just reminded me you were the one.
    From Standing in the Doorway
  9. City's just a jungle, more games to play Trapped in the heart of it, tryin' to get away I was raised in the country, I been working in the town I been in trouble ever since I set my suitcase down
    From Mississippi
  10. Well, the emptiness is endless, cold as the clay You can always come back, but you can't come back all the way Only one thing I did wrong Stayed in Mississippi a day too long.
    From Mississippi
  11. People are crazy and times are strange I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range I used to care, but things have changed
    From Things Have Changed
  12. May your hands always be busy May your feet always be swift May you have a strong foundation When the winds of changes shift May your heart always be joyful And may your song always be sung May you stay forever young
    From Forever Young
