Oh, the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin'
Like the stillness in the wind

  • so good
  • How in the world did he write this.
  • Glad that hotel guy got Bob mad. [4]
  • Listening to Mr Dylan's 3rd album "The times they are a-changin'" released January 13, 1964 two months after Kennedy was assassinated. From the Only Solitaire Review: Apparently, Mr. Zimmerman was experiencing lots of indirect pressure from his folk music colleagues (and folks down at the record company as well) who wanted to have him put forth a real protest song album - you know, no obscure metaphorical shite like 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall', too artsy and indirect to be appreciated by those whoe believed in music as a political instrument. Bobbie, then, who was writing songs at a dozen per cigarette and already had a good batch of protest songs in store at the time of release of Freewheelin', was quite willing to oblige. And that's exactly what you get - ten protest songs with straightahead, generic, unsophisticated (by Bob's own standards of 1964) lyrics.
  • Then they’ll raise their hands, sayin’ we’ll meet all your demands, but we’ll shout from the bow your days are numbered, and like Pharoah’s tribe they’ll be drownded in the tide, and like Goliath, they’ll be conquered!
  • The harmonica is great,just fucking great...
  • bootlegs vol 1 version <3
  • Glad that hotel guy got Bob mad. [3]
  • Just beautiful. Odd word for such a vengeful song, but that's Dylan for ya!
  • Check out The Pogue's version!
