Una canzone per Bob Dylan scritta come lettera sulla falsariga della Song To Woody che Dylan aveva scritto per Woddy Guthrie.
You sound out a warning when you see the signs in the sky
but in the land of the blind, its a crime to exist with an eye
and your dreams are in color but your life is a pale afternoon
and the truth is a song but the notes are all played out of tune

Well hey hey Bob Dylan i wrote you a song
and i know that the answers we are searching for will be here for long
you told us that war is a sin, and a sham, and a shame
and the penance we pay for our silence
is more than just taking the blame

and the world is a-spinning far out of control
we've got storms in the east while the western world's selling its soul
oh bob I've been stressing and fretting the thought of it all
'cause the world that i know and i love
is now dangling and ripe for the fall
and the American pharaoh is poised and ready to strike
but dictators rise and they fall 'cause they all act alike
they teach you to fear and surrender what's left of your youth
and the wealth that you give them is spent on the purchase of truth

Well hey hey bob dylan i wrote you a song
and i know that the answers we are searching for will be here for long
you told us that war is a sin, and a sham, and a shame
and the penance we pay for our silence
is more than just taking the blame

where are the Christians and why don't they answer the call
they believe in their scriptures but don't seem use them at all
well you cant go and bomb the whole world in God's holy name
if Jesus were here, you'd collapse from the weight of the shame

well hey hey Bob Dylan we need you today
because the freedom we fight and we die for is sailing away
and there's too many voices of wrong drowning out what is right
come sing with me now and together we'll take up the fight
come sing with me now and together we'll take up the fight
