Catskill Serenade

My wife annoys me.
But drinking with these strangers
Annoys me much more.

Cat's in the Well

The end of the world
Sweeps in on a haunting tune,
Rockin' and Rollin'


Catfish played baseball
And whooped Reggie Jackson bad.
Good southern Yankee.

Casey Jones

Brakeman Casey Jones
Died while driving a freight train.
He complained a lot.

Carrying a Torch

Some folks, they break up
And stay broke up. They carry
Torches; they're on fire!

Caribbean Wind

Song about a girl
Sounds like Bob cribbed the plot from
A Graham Greene story.

Careless Love

Love her and leave her.
See how quickly a lover
Becomes a stalker.

Car Car

Riding in his car
Means you have to handle a
Pretty stiff gearshift.

Can You Please Crawl out Your Window? (2)

You date a loser.
He's pretentious. Why don't you
Come date me instead?

Happy birthday to Bob Dylan

Happy birthday, Mr. Z!

Can't Wait

You left long ago.
It took me years to find you.
What if I die now?

Can't Lose What You Ain't Never Had

Muddy Waters says
You can't lose stuff you don't have.
Hell -- losing's losing.

Cantina Theme (Workin' for the Law) - From Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid

Ex-outlaw, now cop.
A theme for a broken man,
Broken by the law!

Can't Help Falling in Love

Dylan as Elvis.
Don't be surprised, dear reader.
He's done this before.

Can't Escape From You

You hurt me, haunt me.
You threw out our Christmas pie.
What's a Christmas pie?

Candy Man

To be candy man
Means you must be sweet to her.
Give her some sugar.


Boy takes girl to sea.
The captain takes her over.
Girl wins, boy loses.

Call Letter Blues

She left him, all right,
Even the kids know she's gone.
But this dude abides.

California Brown-Eyed Baby

Bob's girl's way out west,
But he's in New Jersey now.
He's lonely, of course.

Four songs in one, while
Bob jokes about the weather
In San Francisco.

By the Banks of the Royal Canal

Irish Prisoners
Live monotonously and
In filthy quarters.

Bye and Bye

Dylan might be old,
But he's gonna waltz you now,
And love you some more.

Buzz Buzz Buzz

She's the sweetest gal,
She hangs out in her beehive.
I eat her honey.

But I Forgive You

If you forgive her,
You'll find yourself saying that
Time after time, son.

Bunkhouse Theme (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid)

A little music
Sets the pace for the old West
And hard-living ways.

Buckets of Rain

Life just isn't fair.
Bob says take things as they come
And let them play out.

Brownsville Girl

Sam Shepard and Bob
Write about lost love regained
And Gregory Peck.

Brown Sugar

Bob and Mick Jagger
Share a taste for "Brown Sugar."
You know what they mean.
