Thread Name: Happy 65th Bob Dylan
Subject: RE: Happy 65th Bob Dylan
Thanks LH, my mind was on similar lines (I think!) but I could never have expressed it so articulatley. And thanks for taking the time to type out the lyrics: they are superb, even in simple black and white without music. It really annoys me when people with of average talent say "Dylan just writes rubbish", or words to that effect. They should take a serious look at the lyrics of "I and " and the scores of other great songs that he has written over a period of 40-plus years.

On a lighter note, re Davie Hume;

David Hume ate a swinging great dinner,
And very day grew fatter and fatter,
And yet the huge bulk of a sinner,
Said there was neither spirit nor matter!
