2. Oh, God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe said, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No," Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want, Abe, but
the next time you see me comin', you better run."
Well, Abe said, "Where d'you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"....

3. Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

2. Oh, God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe said, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No," Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want, Abe, but
the next time you see me comin', you better run."
Well, Abe said, "Where d'you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"....

3. Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

4. No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And tho I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, its not my problem?

Quote a Bob Dylan lyric that proves he deserved the Nobel Prize for his poetry

1. May you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung, and may you stay forever young.

2. Oh, God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe said, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No," Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want, Abe, but

Well, Abe said, "Where d'you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"....

3. And I hope that you die
And your death will come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I’ll watch while you’re lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I’ll stand on your grave
Til I’m sure that you’re dead

4. No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And tho I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, its not my problem?

5. Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

6. I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me....

The song ends exactly a minute after the "sixty seconds" line.

The answer is blowin' in the wind

Sleep is like a temporary death

Well, they burned my barn, and they stole my horse
I can't save a dime
I got to be careful, I don't want to be forced
Into a life of continual crime
I can see for myself that the sun is sinking
How I wish you were here to see
Tell me now, am I wrong in thinking
That you have forgotten me?

I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty streetís too dead for dreaming

Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal

12. Most of the time she ain't even in my mind
I wouldn't know her if I saw her
She's that far behind
Most of the time I can't even be sure
If she was ever with me
Or if I was ever with her
Most of the time I'm halfway content
Most of the time I know exactly where it went
I don't cheat on myself I don't run and hide
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
I don't compromise and I don't pretend
I don't even care if I ever see her again
Most of the time.
