Bob Dylan died All of his children cried They buried him down in a no-name town Bob Dylan's dead Don't let it get to your head They laid him to rest and then headed back West Bob Dylan sleeps under the sycamore trees It's been a long time since he woke up alive Bob Dylan dreams of all the innumerable things he'd seen in his lives and all five of his wives Bob Dylan dies

Now I'm living the hobo life Got no children and got no wife God knows why I keep blowin my fife, strummin my chords and makin the best of my time Feels so good to be out of school The nights are wild and the days are cool Your legs are long and my heart's on full - It filled up leading the hobo life again Well everywhere I go is where I live Where the food is good and the wine is sweet and the people are all good-lookin And the whole wide world is a wide open door with a sign sayin, come on in boy, get your fill and go back again Feels so good to be back on the road again Feels so good to be back on the boat again Feels so good to be here with you and back to leadin the hobo life again Well everyone I meet is my new best friend and all the pretty girls tend to smile and wave when they see me coming their way And the whole wide world is a wide open road with a sun setting in the distance that always leads me home to you Yeah I'm still leading the hobo life Got no money and got no strife I keep on chuggin and a-blowin my fife, strummin these here chords and makin the best of my hobo times

It's New Year's Eve in Echo Park and everyone's getting high inside a teepee feeling each other up, and going down My love is far away and her phone is off and I've fallen prey to the alcohol, drugs and orgies that surround me Then I find myself in Las Cruces sitting by the side of the road holding a cardboard sign saying Anything Helps - God Bless and I am waiting for the Lord to take me home It's New Year's Day above L.A. and finally I'm awake beside a stranger, feeling my head explode and getting sick My love is far away and her phone's still off and I have to say that I think this might just be the worst year ever Then I found myself in Las Cruces lying by the side of the road next to a cardboard sign saying Anything Helps - God Bless and I'm still waiting for the Lord to take me home I don't know how I got here I don't know where I'm from I don't know where I'm going and I sure don't know how come I've taken to religion It's all that I've got left when I'm not high or wishing I was drowning my regrets (in tears, and beers) Soon I'm gonna die in Las Cruces Bury me by the side of the road Put up a cardboard sign saying Nothing Ever Helped, But God Bless and he's still waiting for the Lord to take me home Waiting for the Lord to take me home Take me far away from Las Cruces Fly me high on over your Organ Mountains I know that's where you keep your Pearly Gates

When I am gone When I am further than gone When I am going When I am moving on Will you think of me when you find I'm crossing the sea or the river wide to the unknown side When I am further than gone... While I am here will you be holding me near When I am coming will it be your voice that I hear When I arrive will you push me in or let me dive into the river wide heading to the unknown side When I am further than gone When I am dead and gone will you be thinking of me? And when you hear my reflection in the music that surrounds you will you feel it in your skin will you let the light come in or will you feel it all around you? It's hard to believe it's not magic It's tragic to think that we don't know where we're going What are you showing? When I am gone When I'm further than gone When I am travelling When I'm moving on Will you think of me when I'm crossing the sea or the river wide headed to the unknown side When I am further than gone When I am dead and gone will you be thinking of me? And when you hear my reflections in the music that surround you will you feel them in your skin will you let the light come in or will you feel it all around you? It's hard to believe it's not magic It's tragic to think that we don't know where we're going What are you showing? What are you showing? What are you showing me?

Stepped right into her gaping sex all the colors in the world couldn't compare to the darkness that I found there I was ready to disappear for the funeral of man is a party that I don't wish to attend to I looked around but I didn't expect anything I was the crown that was hung from the ceiling long before I stepped right into her gaping sex and the misery unfurled like a blanket that was lost but not forgotten I was ready to disappear and succumb to the demand of becoming one with the subatomic particles I look around but I don't entertain anything I am the clown that was hung upside downward from the floor. I stepped right into her gaping sex and the whole world was one with the universe that finds itself in my head I was ready to disappear for the unity of man is a date left on the ground down by the river I am around but I don't claim to be anything I am the gown that was hung from the ceiling long before I stepped right into her gaping sex and the whole world collided with and was quickly consumed by the light of the sun I was ready to disappear and succumb to the demand of becoming one with the orphaned rogue planets I look around but I don't see the sun anymore and I am the frown that was hung upside downward from the floor. I stepped right into her gaping sex all the music in the world couldn't compare to the silence that I found there I was ready to disappear.
