COLUMN: ROLLTALK – BOB DYLAN "IT'S ALRIGHT, MA (I'M ONLY BLEEDING)"



Sometimes what you can't find words to say has already been said best, and put to music.

"while some on principles baptized / to strict party platform ties / social clubs in drag disguise / outsiders they can freely criticize / tell nothing except who to idolize / and then say God bless him / while one who sings with his tongue on fire / gargles in the rat race choir / bent out of shape from society's pliers / cares not to come up any higher / but rather get you down in the hole / that he's in"

"and though the rules of the road have been lodged / it’s only people’s games that you got to dodge / and it’s alright, ma, I can make it"
