Nov 13: Bob Dylan – Song To Woody, East Rutherford, New Jersey 1999 (video)

bob dylan 1999

I’m out here a thousand miles from my home
Walkin’ a road other men have gone down
I’m seein’ your world of people and things
Your paupers and peasants and princes and kings

Hey, hey, Woody Guthrie, I wrote you a song
’Bout a funny ol’ world that’s a-comin’ along
Seems sick an’ it’s hungry, it’s tired an’ it’s torn
It looks like it’s a-dyin’ an’ it’s hardly been born

Bob Dylan quotes from the 60’s

bob-dylan

This is the first post with Bob Dylan quotes from the 60’s. The post will be updated many times in the future. There will also, off course, follow posts with quotes from the 70’s, 80’s etc…

UPDATE – other posts:

These quotes are collected from song lyrics & interviews. It’s not only “great” quotes we’ve collected, but also important quotes & funny quotes.

Quotes collected from song lyrics are tried to be kept brief….  it would often be tempting to quote whole songs. Also we’ll try to limit ourselves to max 3 quotes from the same song.

Some songs are sorted under the year they were released (on record), other’s are sorted under the year they were obviously written/recorded.

Please comment/send us input, but we don’t like quotes without a source…
