Oh, the benches were stained with tears and perspiration
The birdies were flyin' from tree to tree
There was little to say, there was no conversation
As I stepped to the stage to pick up my degree

    Wait, how did I never register the pun in "weather was hot, nearly ninety degrees" ? As in, ninety of 'em handed out... brilliant. New Morning is so damn great. So colorful - humor, sadness, frustration, longing and all.

    I put down my robe, picked up my diploma, took hold of my sweetheart and away we did drive - straight for the hills, the black hills of Dakota. Sure was glad to get out of there alive.

    I glanced into the chamber where the judges were talking. Darkness was everywhere, it smelled like a tomb! I was ready to leave, I was already walkin’, but the next time I looked there was light in the room. And the locusts sang, yeah, it give me a chill, oh the locusts sang such a sweet melody, oh, the locusts sang their high whining trill - yeah, the locusts sang and they were singing for me.

    I don't know many songs about Locusts. But this is an epic song. I find it impossible not to sing along.
