Reading the News, What Dylan Songs Come to Mind? [Vanity]
7/30/12 | dagogo redux

Posted on 07/30/2012 3:56:56 PM PDT by dagogo redux

Bob Dylan may not be appreciated by all the folks here at FreeRepublic, but I’ll bet he is by a great many.

What songs, lyrics, or phrases of his do you find going through your minds these days as the news in America becomes darker and more twisted?

“Union Sundown” is one of Bob’s best, including the line, “I can see the day coming when even your home garden Is gonna be against the law.”

That day is sadly here ...

Well, my shoes, they come from Singapore My flashlights from Taiwan My tablecloths from Malaysia My belt buckles from the Amazon

You know, this shirt I wear comes from the Philippines And the car I drive is a Chevrolet It was put together down in Argentina By a guy makin’ thirty cents a day

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A Sure was a good idea Till greed got in the way

Well, this silk dress is from Hong Kong And the pearls are from Japan Well, the dog collars from India And the flower pots from Pakistan

All the furniture, it says “Made in Brazil” Where a woman, she slaved for sure Bringin’ home thirty cents a day to a family of twelve You know, that’s a lot of money to her

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A Sure was a good idea Till greed got in the way

Well, you know, lots of people complainin’ that there is no work I say, Why you say that for When nothin’ you got is U.S.-made? They don’t make nothin’ here no more

You know, capitalism is above the law It say, “It don’t count less it sells.” When it costs too much to build it at home You just build it cheaper someplace else

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A Sure was a good idea Till greed got in the way

Well, the job that you used to have They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador The unions are big business, friend And they’re goin’ out like a dinosaur

They used to grow food in Kansas Now they want to grow it on the moon and eat it raw I can see the day coming when even your home garden Is gonna be against the law

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A Sure was a good idea Till greed got in the way

Democracy don’t rule the world You’d better get that in your head This world is ruled by violence But I guess that’s better left unsaid

From Broadway to the milky way That’s a lot of territory indeed And a man’s gonna do what he has to do When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A Sure was a good idea Till greed got in the way

The last verse of "Positively 4th Street" is an absolute classic:

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes,
And just for that one moment, I could be you.
Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes.
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.

neighborhood bully-

Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man
His enemies say he’s on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place to escape to, no place to run
He’s the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully he just lives to survive
He’s criticized and condemned for being alive
He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin
He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in
He’s the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land
He’s wandered the earth an exiled man
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn
He’s always on trial for just being born
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized
Old women condemned him, said he could apologize
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad
The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, the chances are against it, and the odds are slim
That he’ll live by the rules that the world makes for him
‘Cause there’s a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
And a licence to kill him is given out to every maniac
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, he got no allies to really speak of
What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love
He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep
He’s the neighborhood bully.
Every empire that’s enslaved him is gone
Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon
He’s made a garden of paradise in the desert sand
In bed with nobody, under no one’s command
He’s the neighborhood bully.

Now his holiest books have been trampled upon
No contract that he signed was worth that what it was written on
He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth
Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health
He’s the neighborhood bully.

What’s anybody indebted to him for ?
Nothing, they say. He just likes to cause war
Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed
They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed
He’s the neighborhood bully.

What has he done to wear so many scars ?
Does he change the course of rivers ? Does he pollute the moon and stars ?
Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill
Running out the clock, time standing still
Neighborhood bully.

Teachers teach that knowledge waits

Goodness hides behind its gates

From Black Diamond Bay which describes the apathy of the masses:

I was siting home alone one night in LA
Watching old Cronkite on the seven o’clock news
It seems there was an earthquake that
Left nothing but a Panama hat
And a pair of old Greek shoes
Didn’t seem like much was happening
So I turned it off and went to grab another beer
Seems like every time you turn around
There’s another hard-luck story that you’re gonna hear
And there’s really nothing anyone can say
And I never did plan to go anyway
To Black Diamond Bay.

His music has contained political statements, but he doesn’t shoot off his mouth like Sproingsteen or the Dixie Clucks. He really doesn’t say much about politics.

Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan

Johnny’s in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I’m on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he’s got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did
God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again
You better duck down the alley way
Lookin’ for a new friend
The man in the coon-skin cap
By the big pen
Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten

Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin’ that the heat put
Plants in the bed but
The phone’s tapped anyway
Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May
Orders from the D.A.
Look out kid
Don’t matter what you did
Walk on your tiptoes
Don’t try “No-Doz”
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don’t need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows

Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin’ to sell
Try hard, get barred
Get back, write braille
Get jailed, jump bail
Join the army, if you fail
Look out kid
You’re gonna get hit
But users, cheaters
Six-time losers
Hang around the theaters
Girl by the whirlpool
Lookin’ for a new fool
Don’t follow leaders
Watch the parkin’ meters

Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don’t steal, don’t lift
Twenty years of schoolin’
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don’t wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don’t wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don’t work
’Cause the vandals took the handles

Now the rovin’ gambler he was very bored

He was tryin’ to create a next world war

He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor

He said I never engaged in this kind of thing before

But yes I think it can be very easily done

We’ll just put some bleachers out in the sun

And have it on Highway 61.

Once upon a time you stood in line
Hoping to get some Obama time, didn't you?
Conservatives said the economy will be dead, but you thought they were all, kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about
Those who had concerns and doubts,
That he knew what he was, talking about
That his history hadn’t been, figured out
Now you can scrounge for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To lose your home
Your city a war zone,
To be an Obama drone?

Heart burnin’, still yearnin’
Walkin’ through the cities of the plague.

MY BACK PAGES

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
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
Foundationed 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

A self-ordained professor’s tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
“Equality,” I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I’d become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Yes, 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

This is a tad bit off topic, but since you brought up Dylan...

I really enjoy his songs, except for his frequent use of “ain't”, which for some reason really grates on me. And that's VERY ironic, because my own grammar is quite poor.

Anyway, I remember hearing someone sing Dylan's “It Ain't Me Babe.” But she sang it as It's Not Me Babe.” It was beautiful, but I can't remember who the singer was. Any ideas?

I think Bob Dylan gets a bad rap among conservatives. I believe that Bob Dylan is himself a rabid conservative. He just can't say it out loud because he still wants those smelly, aging hippies to buy his records. Can't blame him for that.

Consider the time of Woodstock. Bob Dylan lived near Woodstock and could probably have walked to the show if he wanted to perform. But Bob Dylan wanted nothing doing with the "gathering storm of hippies" that were sure to infest the area. So he got the hell out of Dodge. And good for him.

How do you get rid of frizzy hair? Anyway, here is one of my favorite Bob Dylan lyrics...

Shadows are fallin' and I've been here all day
It's too hot to sleep and time is runnin' away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

I’ll probably get flamed big time for this, but I’ve always felt Dylan is the most overated singer/writer in modern times. However ...this line,
“Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes.
You’d know what a drag it is to see you.”
has to be THE line that always brings a smile/smirk to my face. :)

“Man of Peace”

Look out your window, baby, there’s a scene you’d like to catch
The band is playing “Dixie,” a man got his hand outstretched
Could be the fuhrer, could be the local priest
You know, sometimes Satan, you know, he come as a man of peace

He got sweet gift of gab, he got harmonious tongue
He know every song of love that ever has been sung
Good intentions can be evil, both hands can be full of grease
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, first he’s in the background, then he’s in the front
Both eyes are lookin’ like they’re on a rabbit hunt
Nobody can see through him, no, not even the chief of police
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, he catch you when you’re hopin’ for a glimpse of the sun
Catch you when your trouble feel like they weigh a ton
He could be standin’ next to you, the person that you’d notice least
I hear that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, he can be fascinating, he can be dull
He can ride down Niagara Falls in the barrels of your skull
I can smell somethin’ cookin’, I can tell there’s goin’ to be a feast
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

He’s a great humanitarian, he’s a great philanthropist
He knows just where to touch you, honey and how you like to be kissed
He’ll put both his arms around you
You can feel that tender touch of the beast
You know, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, the howlin’ wolf will howl tonight, the king snake will crawl
Trees that’ve stood for a thousand years, suddenly will fall
Wanna get married? Do it now, tomorrow all activity will cease
You know, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Somewhere mama’s weepin’ for her blue-eyed boy
She’s holdin’ them a little white shoes and that little broken toy
And he’s followin’ a star
The same one them three men followed from the east
I hear, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace, oh yeah
