      About "I Shall Be Free"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "I Shall Be Free"

      Well, I took me a woman late last night,
      I's three-fourths drunk, she looked uptight.
      She took off her wheel, took off her bell,
      Took off her wig, said, "How do I smell?"
      I hot-footed it, bare-naked
      Out the window!

      Well, sometimes I might get drunk,
      Walk like a duck and stomp like a skunk.
      Don't hurt me none, don't hurt my pride
      'Cause I got my little lady right by my side.
      (Right there
      Proud as can be)

      I's out there paintin' on the old woodshed
      When a can a black paint it fell on my head.
      I went down to scrub and rub
      But I had to sit in back of the tub.
      Cost a quarter
      And I had to get out quick
      Someone wanted to come in and take a sauna

      Well, my telephone rang it would not stop,
      It's President Kennedy callin' me up.
      He said, "My friend, Bob, what do we need to make the country grow?"
      I said, "My friend, John, Brigitte Bardot,
      Anita Ekberg,
      Sophia Loren."
      Put 'em all in the same room with Ernest Borgnine!

      Well, I got a woman sleeps on a cot,
      She yells and hollers and squeals a lot.
      Licks my face and tickles my ear,
      Bends me over and buys me beer.
      (She's a honeymooner
      A June crooner
      A spoon feeder
      And a natural leader)

      Oh, there ain't no use in me workin' so heavy,
      I got a woman who works on the levee.
      Pumping that water up to her neck,
      Every week she sends me a monthly check.
      She's a humdinger
      Folk singer
      Dead ringer
      For a thing-a-muh jigger

      Late one day in the middle of the week,
      Eyes were closed I was half asleep.
      I chased me a woman up the hill,
      Right in the middle of an air raid drill.
      It was Little Bo Peep!
      (I jumped a fallout shelter
      I jumped a bean stalk
      I jumped a Ferris wheel)

      Now, the man on the stand he wants my vote,
      He's a-runnin' for office on the ballot note.
      He's out there preachin' in front of the steeple,
      Tellin' me he loves all kinds-a people.
      (He's eatin' bagels
      He's eatin' pizza
      He's eatin' chitlins
      He's eatin' bullshit!)

      Oh, set me down on a television floor,
      I'll flip the channel to number four.
      Out of the shower comes a grown-up man
      With a bottle of hair oil in his hand.
      (It's that greasy kid stuff.
      What I want to know, Mr. Football Man, is
      What do you do about Willy Mays and Yul Brynner,
      Charles de Gaulle
      And Robert Louis Stevenson?)

      Well, the funniest woman I ever seen
      Was the great-granddaughter of Mr. Clean.
      She takes about fifteen baths a day,
      Wants me to grow a cigar on my face.
      (She's a little bit heavy!)

      Well, ask me why I'm drunk alla time,
      It levels my head and eases my mind.
      I just walk along and stroll and sing,
      I see better days and I do better things.
      I catch dinosaurs
      I make love to Elizabeth Taylor
      Catch hell from Richard Burton!)
