Blowin’ in the Wind
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)
Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.

So don’t fear if you hear
A foreign sound to you ear
It’s alright, Ma, I’m only sighing.

Tangled Up In Blue
Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet
From the fifteenth century
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burning coal
Pouring off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you
Tangled up in blue.

Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right
And it ain’t no use in turning on your light, babe
The light I never knowed
And it ain’t no use in turning on your light, babe
I’m on the dark side of the road

But I wish there was somethin’ you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
But we never did too much talking anyway
But don’t think twice, it’s all right.

Workingman’s Blues #2
Now the place is ringed with countless foes
Some of them may be deaf and dumb
No man, no woman knows
The hour that sorrow will come
In the dark I hear the night birds call
I can feel a lover’s breath
I sleep in the kitchen with my feet in the hall
Sleep is like a temporary death

Talkin’ World War III Blues
Some of the people can be all right part of the time
But all of the people can’t be all right all of the time
I think Abraham Lincoln said that
“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours”
I said that.

Positively Fourth Street
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.

Chimes Of Freedom
Far between sundown’s finish an’ midnight’s broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing

Just Like a Woman
And she takes just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
And she wakes just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Mr Tambourine Man
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

One Too Many Mornings
It’s a restless hungry feeling
That don’t mean no one no good
When ev’rything I’m a-sayin’
You can say it just as good
You’re right from your side
I’m right from mine
We’re both just too many mornings
An’ a thousand miles behind.

Love Minus Zero, No Limit
The bridge at midnight trembles
The country doctor rambles
Bankers’ nieces seek perfection
Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring
The wind howls like a hammer
The night wind blows cold n’ rainy
My love, she’s like some raven
At my window with a broken wing

Subterranean Homesick Blues
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Wash the plain clothes
You don’t need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows.

The Times They Are a-Changin’
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
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’.

I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know

You think you know the smile on her lips
The thrill and the touch of her fingertips
But I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her

Like a Rolling Stone
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin’ out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?

Lay Lady Lay
Whatever colors you have in your mind
I’ll show them to you and you’ll see them shine.

Melancholy Mood
Melancholy mood forever haunts me
Steals upon me in the night, forever taunts me
Oh, what a lonely soul am I, stranded high and dry
By a melancholy mood

Forever Young
May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young

    Citirao bih Financial Times:

    “Some argue the 75-year-old singer-songwriter, born Robert Zimmerman, is
    not even the best of his generation”.

    Srecom, nema potrebe za moraliziranjem i nerviranjem, jer Nobelova nagrada
    nema gotovo nikakvu relevantnost u literaturi i nagradi za mir.

    Jos jedan promasaj.

    • zsikic kaže:

      tvrdnje koje počinju sa “some argue” i smatraju da trebaju naglasiti “born robert zimmerman” u načelu ignoriram

      no ipak bih istaknuo činjenicu da je dylanova poezija dotakla milijune ljudi što je uspjelo rijetkima

      uostalom nobel ide “to those who have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind” (citat iz nobelove oporuke)

      npr. einstein ga nije dobio za teoriju relativnosti (njegov najveći doprinos znanosti) nego za fotoelektrični efekt (njegov najprimjenljivaniji doprinos)

      p.s. ja bih nobela dao i cohenu🙂

    A ja moram priznati da mene takvi komentari najvise pobudjuju na citanje.

    Sto bi rekli Englezi, takes all sorts to make a world.

    Meni je, recimo totalno besmislen “argument” da bi nekome trebalo
    dodijeliti Nobelovu nagradu zato sto su njegove pjesme dodirnule srca
    milijuna ljudi.

    Ne mislim da ima smisla nabrajati sto je sve, tko je sve i cime dodirnuo
    srca milijuna ljudi, pa to ne zasluzuje Nobelovu nagradu.

    No, kao sto rekoh, ljudi koji se bave knjizevnoscu uglavnom i tako
    ignoriraju ono sto o vrijednosti pojedinih pisaca i spisateljica ima reci
    odbor za dodjelu Nobelove nagrade.

  3. zsikic kaže:

    nobelov komitet za književnost nije samo književna kritika

    kao što ni njegovi komiteti za znanosti nisu samo znanstvena

    mogu samo ponoviti da se nobel (prema oporuci) daje

    “to those who have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind”

    i to nisu nužno (iako često jesu) najveći književnici i znanstvenici

    npr. matematičari i ekonomisti nisu oporučno uključeni jer je nobel (vjerojatno) smatrao da nisu “those who could confer the greatest benefit on mankind”🙂

    daniel žderić:

    Po meni izbor dobitnika Nobelove nagrade je uglavnom kontroverzan.Povjest je
    pokazala da itekako zna biti pogodjen,ali i promasen.Ja podrzavam
    hrabrost,pa cak i ako su eventualno promasili ovaj puta.

  5. zsikic kaže:

    nisu, nego u sridu🙂

    Sto to znaci da nije najbolji u svojoj generaciji? Pa vjerojatno i nije (ako se ogranicimo samo na pop-rock kulturu, ne nedostaje bardova njegove generacije, da ne spominjemo ‘visoku kulturu’) ali Dylan je u recepciji siroke javnosti (‘benefit on mankind’) ikona koja sazima angaziran gradjanski stav i uspjesno ga ‘diseminira’ djelujuci kroz obrazac rock-songa (koji je usput i redefinirao vise puta). Da li je to literatura? I da i ne – sigurno ima dodirnih tocaka, ali … Medjutim kao i karakter same nagrade (koja i sama medijskim plasmanom nadilazi strogo ‘strucni’ karakter te odasilje poruke slicne manirizmu pop kulture), Dylanova pojava (a na taj nacin i ovogodisnji odabir) imaju simbolicnu tezinu.

    kolega koji ne odobrava izbor kaže da je elitist. cudno…a to ja za sebe mislio…don’t follow leaders, watch the parking meters
