I don’t know how I come to songs, y’know, but doing what I’m doing, I’m doing, er… I mean, it’s not up to me, y’know, I don’t really go into myself that deep… I just go ahead and do it, yeah, I was sort of trying to find a place to pound my nails, y’know.

  1. Love Bob’s personality of what I can see , love love his singing and style of songwriting . Love his wit and kindness when dealing with people , when he can allow courteousness ; that is to say he doesn’t disregard being walked on, or ill-treated .
    However I don’t see how he can believe that many such great songs, he has written just come to him . Without looking or trying to find such great lyrical rhythm beyond almost any writer I can think of ( Kris Kristopherson is good , never heard him say it was a piece of cake ) I think indicates Bob Dylan was born a savant of poetry and songwriting . I guess history has now finally seen what many have for years re: Nobel Peace Prize for Literature , but lest we forget that whom many things are given , much is expected ! I dare to say in many cases they are bitterly tested to the point of should he be blessed or blamed ? Many people try to analyze his difficult tests of life ! I for one wouldn’t feel adequate enough to analyze my own tests of life , little on Bob Dylan’s’ .

    1. I agree, Bob was born with a special gift. God blessed him, God has a plan, He gave him the savant ability.
