When The Ship Comes In (Dylan)
Oh the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be a breathin’
Like the stillness in the wind
‘Fore the hurricane begins
The hour when the ship comes in

Oh the seas will split
And the ship will hit
And the shoreline sands will be shaken
Then the tide will sound and the wind will pound
And the morning will be breakin’

Oh the fishes will laugh
As they swim out of the path
And the seagulls they'll be smilin’
And the rocks on the sand
Will proudly stand
The hour that the ship comes in

And the words they use
For to get the ship confused
Will not be understood as they are spoken
For the chains of the sea
Will have busted in the night
And be buried at the bottom of the ocean

Break
Oh the seas will split
And the ship will hit
And the shoreline sands will be shaken
Then the tide will sound and the wind will pound
And the morning will be breakin’

A song will lift as the main sail shifts
And the boat drifts onto the shoreline
And the sun will respect every face on the deck
The hour when the ship comes in

Then the sands will roll out a carpet of gold
For your weary toes to be a touchin’
And the ships wise men will remind you once again
That the whole wide world is watchin’

 

I'll Be Your Baby Tonight (Dylan)
Close your eyes, close the door
You don't have to worry anymore
I'll be your little baby tonight

Shut the light, shut the shade
You don't have to be afraid
I'll be your baby tonight

Well the mockingbird's gonna sail away
You won't regret it
The big fat moons gonna shine like a spoon
You won't regret, you won't forget
To get your shoes off
Do not fear
Bring that bottle over here
I'll be your baby tonight

Break

Well the mockingbird's gonna sail away
You won't regret it
The big fat moons gonna shine like a spoon
You won't regret, you won't forget
To get your shoes off
Do not fear
Bring that bottle over here
I'll be your baby tonight

I'll be your baby tonight

 

I Want You (Dylan)
The guilty undertaker sighs
The lonesome organ grinder cries
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn
But it's not that way
I wasn't born to lose you

Oh baby I want you
I want you
I want you
Oh so bad
Baby, I want you

Drunken politician leaves
Upon the street where mothers weep
The saviours who are fast asleep
They wait for you
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin’ from my broken cup
And askin’ me to open up the gate for you

Woh baby I want you
I want you
I want you
Oh, so bad
Baby I want you

Now all my fathers, they've gone down
True love they've been without it
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it

Baby I want you
Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit
He spoke to me, I took his flute
No, I wasn't very cute to him now was I

I did it because he lied
Because he took you for a ride
And because time was on his side
And because I

Baby I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you

 

This Wheel's On Fire (Dylan)
This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire

If your memory serves you well
We're gonna meet again and wait
So I'm gonna unpack all my things
And sit there for it gets to late

No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
And you know that we shall meet again
If your memory serves you well

Wheel's on fire
Rollin’ down the road
Let's notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode

If your memory serves you well
I was gonna confiscate your lace
And wrap it up in a sailors knot
And hide it in your case
If I knew for sure that it was yours
But it was so hard to tell
And you know that we shall meet again
If your memory serves you well
Wheel's on fire
Rollin’ down the road
Let's notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode

This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire

If your memory serves you well
You'll remember you're the one
That called on me to call on them
To get your favours done
And after every plan had failed
And there was nothin’ more to tell
You knew that we should meet again
If your memory serves you well

This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire
This wheel's on fire


I Shall Be Released (Dylan)
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

They say everything can be replaced
Yet every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

Break

Standin’ next to me in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear him shoutin’ so loud
Cryin' out that he was framed

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

 

Blowin' In The Wind (Dylan)
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you can call him a man
And how many seas must the white dove sail
Before she can sleep in the sand

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

Well how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
And how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

Well, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea
And how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

Break

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

In the wind

In the wind

In the wind

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

In the wind

In the wind

In the wind

 

Quit Your Low Down Ways (Dylan)
Oh you can read out of your bible
You can fall down on your knees
Pretty mama, and pray to the lord
But it ain't gonna do you no good

You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your lowdown ways

Well you can run down to the White House
You can gaze at the Capitol Dome
Pretty mama, you can pound on the President's gate
It'll do you no good

You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your lowdown ways

Well you can run down to the desert
Throw yourself on the burnin’ sand
You can raise up your right hand pretty mama
But you better understand

You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your lowdown ways

Break

You can hitch hike on the highways
You can stand alone by the side of the road
You can try to flag a ride back home pretty mama
But you can't ride in my car

You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your lowdown ways


Oh you can read out of your bible
You can fall down on your knees
Pretty mama, and pray to the lord
But it ain't gonna do you no good

You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your lowdown ways

Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways
Quit your lowdown ways

 

Just Like A Woman (Dylan)
Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows that baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls

Oh, she takes just like a woman
Yes she does
And she makes love just like a woman
Yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
Yeah, but she breaks just like a little girl

Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That baby can't be blessed
'Til she finally sees that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls

Oh, she takes just like a woman
Yes she does
And she makes love just like a woman
Yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
Yeah, but she breaks just like a little girl

It was raining from the first
I was dying of thirst
So I came in here
And your long time curse
Hurts but what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that
I just can't fit

Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again, introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

Oh, she takes just like a woman
Yes she does
And she makes love just like a woman
(You know you do, you know you do)
You ache just like a woman, Yeah
And you take just like a woman. Yeak Yeah
And you make…

 

The Times They Are A 'Changin' (Dylan)
Come gather round people wherever you may roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
Admit that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is a saving
Well you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing

Come writers and critics who prophesy with your pen
Keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
Don't speak too soon for the wheel’s still in spin
And there's no telling who that it's naming
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times, they are a changing

Come senators and congressman please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway, don't blacken the hall
For he who has lost is he who has all
There's a storm outside and it's raging'
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times, they are a changing

Break

It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
Don't criticise what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
And your old road is rapidly aging
So get out of the new one if you can’t lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin'

Come gather round people wherever you may roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
Admit that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is a saving
Well you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing

For the times they are a-changin'

 

All I Really Want To Do (Dylan)
All I really want to do is baby be friends with you

I don't want to compete with you
Beat or cheat or mistreat you
Classify ya, simplify ya, deny, defy or crucify you

All I really want to do is baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you

No, I ain't looking to fight with you
Frighten you, or tighten you
Bring you down or chain you down
Drag you down or bring you down

All I really want to do is baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you

Baby be friends with you

Break

All I really want to do is baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you

I don't want to meet your kin
Make you spin or do you in
Or select you or dissect you
Or respect you or reject you

All I really want to do is baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you
Baby be friends with you

 

My Back Pages (Dylan)
Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rolling high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
We'll meet again soon I said
Proud ‘neath heated brow

Ah but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
Rip down all hate I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundation deep somehow

Ah but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now

Girls’ faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought-of, though, somehow

Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Break

Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

My guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow

Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
I’m younger than that now
I’m younger than that now
I’m younger than that now

 

Mighty Quinn (Dylan)
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Everybody's building ships and boats
Some are building monuments, others jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy

Oh, Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

I like to do just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But guarding queues and making haste
It ain't my cup of meat
Everybody's beneath the trees feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Break

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
