Bob Dylan The Times They Are A-Changin' Lyrics

Last updated: 11/18/2013 04:49:43 PM


Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam,
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown;
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone;
If your time to you is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone,
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesies 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 tellin' who
That it's namin' for the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congress men
Please heed the call,
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall;
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled...
There's a battle outside,
And it's ragin'.......
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls!
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land,
And don't criticize
What you can't understand...
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command;
The old road is like sinking sand.
Please don’t stand in the way
Of a bright new day,
Lend a hand, and pray
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn,
The curse has passed,
The slow one now
Will later be fast;
As the present now
Will later be past.
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.
