Bob Dylan Lyrics

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As
a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop
songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to
winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-conscious narratives. As
a vocalist, he broke down the notions that in order to
perform, a singer had to have a conventionally good voice,
thereby redefining the role of vocalist in popular music.
As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music,
including electrified folk-rock and country-rock. And that
just touches on the tip More...

    ------ About the song Two Soldiers performed by Bob Dylan

THIS SONG IS NOT THE PROPERTY OF ANYONE. It is public domain, dating from the actual civil war era. Brian Eno and David Byrne can eat shit and die if they think they can just go through the public domain and put copyrights on things. Roy Acuff tried the same stunt with Wabash Cannonball. Please amend!!

Father of Night | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation
    ------ About the song Father Of Night performed by Bob Dylan

This is very beautifully written like a Psalm of David to Father God. I like everything about it except I keep thinking "Everlasting Father" for the title. "And He shall be called, Everlasting Father" Isaiah 9:6 Thanks for writing this. You did a great job. May God bless you.

    ------ About the song Saved performed by Bob Dylan

God used Bob & Tim to write an amazingly inspirational song that spoke to a lost generation - and to us all as we listen now and into the future. No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, this song, being inspired of the Holy Spirit, expresses full of pure joy with its driving pulse and simple blues gospel based chords. It should be sung in churches now and all the young people writing 'praise music' should be required by the elder leadership to listen to this song, LP as well as the other lps of this period. The doctrine is sound, clear and delivered with power. The musicianship is perfection as well - and should be required learning for that aspect alone.
I am so glad I was young and saved when this came out, I am so glad I saw Bob play this music when I did in Nov of 1980. I am so glad that he was raised up by God to deliver these songs and words when he did, the way he did for the time that he did. It lives to day with the same power as it did when it came out serving to express the gospel to those that otherwise would not have heard it and now they have no excuse.
Lord preserve those who are yours according to your promises.

Not Dark Yet | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation
    ------ About the song Not Dark Yet performed by Bob Dylan

And JESUS is standing there with tears in His eyes,
Watching the world ignore Him when they cry,
Dear Lord, I ask why would men let there life go by
Without receiving the One who loved them so much He was crucifed?
For our sins the SAVIOUR of the World did die!
Oh, people open your eyes to the LIGHT,
Love the Lord who made you with all of your might!
Repent and be saved - JESUS MESSIAH rose from the grave
Delivering us from darkness into the LIGHT
Making restitution with His own Blood
Because of His great LOVE.
*Isaiah 53, John 3:16-17, Revelation 3:20-21

This song is done with keen expression likened on to the process of dying without the hope that we have in the Lord Who said, "In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you so.I go to prepare a place for you. That where I am you shall be." (John 14:2) However, Bob Dylan has seen the Light, and does know his Saviour. This may have been written because of his sensitivity to being there with a friend who was passsing away into darkness. It sometimes seems like some people just will not receive their Saviour. However, the Lord, in answer to a friend's prayer may appear to their spirit and soul as it leaves that earthly body, to show them the way. Maybe, He would simply show them a vision of Hell, the cross, and Heaven and ask them to choose. Then, when they choose Heaven and receive Him as Saviour, He would Sprinkle His Blood over their sins. Now, it is gambling with eternal LIFE to wait until the last minute to receive Him because there actually are many people in Hell. But you don't have to be one of them. Glory Cloud Revelation believes that because God is just. He would not allow someone to go to hell who would have received Him, had they understood the gospel. Choose to believe it, today. Please say this prayer with all of your heart: Heavenly Father, I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. And that He rose from the dead. Please forgive me my sins and come into my heart. With your help, I am willing to turn away from all of my sins. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Tell Me It Isn't True | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation
    ------ About the song Tell Me That It Isn't True performed by Bob Dylan

By now you probably know that Glory Cloud Revelation likes happy endings. The only way we could think of one for this song is to have her say the following. We like it that the song is coming right out in the open to bring what is bothering this man to the surface. Once that is done, and trust is rebuilt. They can love again. Isn't that what love songs are about. (This song with the following feminine reply may have been a good one for Johnny Cash and June Carter to sing) Well, as in Solomons Song,
So the story goes...
Solomons bride went for a ride
The watchmen wounded her,
She had to hide.

Thats when another man
Saw her come into the grocery store
And he got angry cause she wouldnt listen
To him talk,
He was a bore.
She felt she didnt owe him anything,
Not even her time,
Cause she keeps dreaming
Of the day, she can say, my true love is mine.

She knows her sweetheart trusts her to be good,
She didnt know that at the next stop where she got food,
A man would grab her hand, as if he should!
She said, Those strange single men, dont seem to understand;
Just because I aint got no wedding band,
Doesnt mean I want them for my man!.

Never was she alone with them, nor did she stay long enough
For them to try to hold her tight.
I agree, that wouldnt be right.
If any of them had tried she said,
I would have run away into the LIGHT!
I told the man that grabbed my hand,
I wouldnt go on a date,
Cause I already like another man,
And for him I would wait.

I dont want anyone but you,
It isnt true what their sayin,
Those people who say that, are mistakin;
For you my love, I am waitin.
I give you my word, It isnt true.
I love only you.

the Church in the world | Reviewer: Razbone
    ------ About the song Sweetheart Like You performed by Bob Dylan

If Satan ever sang a song to Jesus' Church, it would be similar to this one. "The press is down [the word of God has stopped being recorded], the Boss ain't here [so don't bother seeking Him], He's gone north [up] for awhile. They say that vanity got the best of Him, but He sure left here in style...(well, didn't He?)
You know, news of you has come down the line, even before you came through the door; they say your Father's house has many mansions, each one of them's got a fireproof floor [so the fires of hell don't keep you uncomfortably warm].

Don't Think Twice It's All Right | Reviewer: Chaplain Marilyn
    ------ About the song Don't Think Twice It's All Right performed by Bob Dylan

'Don't Think Twice It's All Right is an amusing song in which the key to his leaving seems to be that his soul (emotions, intellect & will) was not satisfied in his relationship with her. "She wanted my soul" is a clue that there may be a dominating Jezebel evil spirit that is trying to take control of what only, properly, belongs to the man and to the LORD - his soul!
A man of God will feel uncomfortable around that manifestation, unless he is called to remain and cast it out. Elijah ran from Queen Jezebel who had had 400 innocent men murdered and threatened his life, too. Later, Elijah prophesied in the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit that conquered her. This story in the Holy Bible is how the "Jezebel spirit" got it's name. (It can manifest through a man, as well as a selfish, dominating, ungodly woman (someone with a Jezebel spirit may even kill her own unborn child because she did not choose to be pregnant at the time) The verse, "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right!" expresses that he doesn't want to stay. However, there is a bit of a struggle to leave the familiar, when he says, "I wish there was something you could do or say, to try to help me change my mind and stay." Immediately, he follows that with, "We never did do much talking any way - Don't think twice, it's all right." This expresses that he doesn't really believe there is anything she can do or say to work this out.
The Bible says in the beginning God made he them, male and female and called them Adam. While Adam slept, the Lord took a rib from his side and formed a woman. Then, when the Lord brought the woman to the man after he woke up. Adam said she is, "Bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called 'woman' because she is taken out of man. The Lord said that He created a woman to be a help meet to the man. To meet him where he needs help.
I believe that our purpose in life is what the Holy Bible teaches - for the LORD we were created. The LORD's plan for us is to change - to go from glory to glory being conformed into the image and likeness of Christ.
The most important thing we are to help each other with is to stay on that glory path so we will make heaven our home".He who endures till the end will be saved." When sweethearts have a disagreement if they decide ahead of time to find out what the Word of God has to say about it and try their best to do it, while remembering to pray for each other, maintaining love and forgiveness in their hearts. Then, this scripture in Ecclesiastes will come true'IT'S BETTER FOR TWO TO BE TOGETHER, THAN ONE. WHEN THE ENEMY COMES IN TWO WILL RESIST HIM. AND A THREEFOLD CHORD IS NOT EASILY BROKEN. (the 3rd One is the Holy Spirit based on the scripture "Where ever two or more are gathered in My name, I am in the midst of you..")
AND IF THEY FALL, THE ONE WILL HELP UP THE OTHER. BUT WOE TO HIM (HER) WHO IS ALONE. HE HAS NOT ANOTHER TO HELP HIM (HER) UP. *When the bible only uses the word "He" it often means mankind.
Conclusion: "Guard your heart, for out of it comes the issues of life." The wrong woman can be as "rotteness to his bones", But a marriage made in heaven between two believers can be a taste of heaven on earth.
Hope this helps somebody. *All quotes are dirivatives from the King James Holy Bible.

One of my favorite lines of all time | Reviewer: AgeOleSun
    ------ About the song Don't Think Twice It's All Right performed by Bob Dylan

"I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul"...this cuts to the core of nearly every unhealthy relationship. Really this line in the song is the only thing that reveals the character of the woman bob is singing about. In relationships gone bad, two people really start to erode each other's sense of individuality and personality. You loved someone because they were something without you. Then you're in the middle of it and for some reason you change who you are for them. But you can only change too much before the seams start to fall apart. A similar line is in paul simon's "slip slidin' away" where paul sings "My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear"...

Desolation Row | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation
    ------ About the song Desolation Row performed by Bob Dylan

DESOLATION ROW Reviewer:Glory Cloud Revelation @2014
Very imaginative and poetically outspoken which of course are Bob Dylan’s special gifts of expression to make his lyrics exceed the ordinary. However, as far as the words go, because we prefer the beauty of faith, hope and love. Desolation Row is not one of our favorites.
Therefore we nominated and liberated Cinderella into being the princess she really is, (not the cinders she was named after by her wicked step sisters) and through her emancipation we see this desolated place redeemed from disgrace. Yes, we know this may start a riot with those who love darkness, but we really don’t care. ‘Cause we love Jesus, the Messiah who our sins did bear. So we looked for Him there:

This is Cinderella, I had to write again, 'cause when an Italian
said, "Don't send me any letters from Desolation Row.
Please tell Juliet,  I'm sorry she slipped and fell,                                                     Going Going to the hospital is better than going to hell.
Romeo was playing blind man's bluff, and couldn’t see very well.

I’m stuck inside a mansion at Desolation Row,
Wanting to get out of hear, wanting to go!
Which way, I don’t know.
Only if there’s love, there a home;
Without love, I’d rather be alone.
So I did what I must do, I forgave those to blame,
Called on Jesus’s name, and His Holy Spirit came.

Darkness dispersed in the early morning rain,
Colorful rainbows, after the storm, came,
Bob Dylan was singing like a bird,
The best love songs ever heard!
Desolation Row wasn’t the same....
Treasures out of darkness called on Jesus's name.

Now, the moon that was hidden, shines with a smile,
The stars sparkle like diamonds in the sky,
All the angels in heaven went wild dancing and singing while,
Prodigal Sons and Mary Magdalenes came home
‘cause God’s son came down from His throne
To die on a cross for our sins, to make us His own.

Jesus shines brighter than the diamonds of Lucy in the sky
In that place called “heaven” where we’ll never say, goodbye.
Fullness of joy in the  HOLY GHOST
Manifests as HE's worshiped and adored. 
Nobody is sad, depressed or bored;
We’re all happily singing, Jesus is Lord!
