Something inside so strong I know that I can make it Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong You thought that my pride was gone Oh no, something inside so strong Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong The more you refuse to hear my voice The louder I will sing You hide behind walls of Jericho Your lies will come tumbling Deny
  6. (Bob Dylan via Pete Seeger) May God bless and keep you always May your wishes all come true May you always do for others And let others do for you May you build a ladder to the stars And climb on every rung May you stay forever young Forever young, forever young May you stay forever young May you grow up to be righteous May you grow up to be true May you always know the truth And see the lights surrounding you May you always be courageous Stand upright and be strong May you stay forever young Forever young, forever young May you stay forever young May your hands always
  7. Well, here is one from the spokesman of his generation: "That big, fat moon is gonna shine like a spoon" Here another 5 pages of the man's moon obsession: http://www.bobdylan.com/us/search/all/moon Here is another classic from the man: "I’ve seen all these decoys through a set of deep turquoise eyes And I feel so depressed" And one more howler: "We want to put his ass in stir We want to pin this triple mur- Der On him, He ain't no Gentlemen Jim."
