The Legend of Dylan

This song’s about
kind of who we are
Where we’re going to travel
and just how far

It all started back
many chords ago
We heard his music
and we loved his show
From snowy plains
to the Greenwich shore
His wise mistrust
we could not ignore
Taking words to task
a complete unknown
He was nobody’s fool
a rolling stone

And the faith fighters stared
the fear mongers glared
And all the jealous poets
sat up and cared
But the seers of trust
flagged him a villain
Combustible fuel
for the legend of Dylan
Whose voice is this
fit for grave times?
Pockets full of tunes
words full of rhymes

And what Earthly being
would tramp on convention?
Snarl at the fans
carve out invention
Please tell me why
you pushed them away
Laughed at the scribes
dissed what they’d say

You saw through injustice
spotted the haters
Watched while the power
got grabbed by the traitors

And the faith fighters stared
the fear mongers glared
And all the jealous poets
sat up and cared
But the seers of trust
flagged you a villain
Combustible fuel
for the legend of Dylan
Yeh, combustible fuel
for the legend of Dylan
I hate to admit it
but I do believe you’re right
The proof’s in the pudding
when that dog’s in the fight

He’d arrive up on stage
like he woke from a lair
His song and dance eyes
said don’t poke the bear

So the wisdom survives
the words don’t tell lies
And the truth in the anger
keeps the legend alive
It’s the end of a shift
Jim’s all about chilling
Sandals and shorts
and a T-shirt of Dylan

Meanwhile masters of war
continue to kill
Still play the game
claim it’s God’s will
Throughout it all
you pointed the way
But face it, we’re selfish
at end of the day

Time for a beer
and Friday night grilling
Crank up the tunes
rare diamonds of Dylan
And the faith fighters stare
the fear mongers glare
And all the jealous poets
stand up and care
But the seers of trust
flag you a villain
Combustible fuel
for the legend of Dylan

The legend of Dylan
the legend of Dylan
Forever young
is the legend of Dylan

The legend of Dylan
the legend of Dylan
The voice of a man
who stood against killing
The legend of Dylan
the legend of Dylan
The words of a man
disdainfully willing
