      About "Song For Bob Dylan"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Song For Bob Dylan"

      Oh, hear this Robert Zimmerman
      I wrote a song for you
      About a strange young man
      Called Dylan
      With a voice like sand and glue
      His words of truthful vengeance
      They could pin us to the floor
      Brought a few more people on
      And put the fear in a whole lot more

      Ah, here she comes
      Here she comes
      Here she comes again
      The same old painted lady
      From the brow of a super brain
      She'll scratch this world to pieces
      As she comes on like a friend
      But a couple of songs
      From your old scrapbook
      Could send her home again

      You gave your heart to every bedsit room
      At least a picture on my wall
      And you sat behind a million pair of eyes
      And told them how they saw
      Then we lost your train of thought
      The paintings are all your own
      While troubles are rising
      We'd rather be scared
      Together than alone

      Ah, here she comes...[etc.]

      Now hear this Robert Zimmerman
      Though I don't suppose we'll meet
      Ask your good friend Dylan
      If he'd gaze a while
      Down the old street
      Tell him we've lost his poems
      So they're writing on the walls
      Give us back our unity
      Give us back our family
      You're every nation's refugee
      Don't leave us with their sanity

      Ah, here she comes...[etc.]
