Broke Down Engine

He's like a dead car.
She's probably the reason.
Bodywork might help.

Bring Me Water

Bring him some water.
If you don't, he'll keep asking.
He must be thirsty.

Bring It on Home

This dude caught his train.
You should get ready for him.
He's on his way home.

Branded Man

When you're an ex-con,
Nobody will let you forget.
That sure sucks, don't it?

The Boxer

Bob sings a big hit.
Bridge over troubled vocals.
You won't like his take.

Bourbon Street

Bob gets liquored up
In New Orleans. He says he
Doesn't “beat his meat.”

Born in Time

This sounds like a song
About a dream lover who
Isn't so dreamy.

Boppin' the Blues

Blues epidemic!
I got it bad, doc says. The
Jukebox is the cure.

Boots of Spanish Leather

Bob stays home alone.
Girl sends gifts in guilt. She’s sailed
far from him -- for good.

Boom Boom Mancini

Boom Boom Mancini
Killed his lightweight opponent.
Welcome to boxing.

Boogie Woogie Country Girl

She dances all night
And gets funky at daybreak.
How can you top that?

Bonnie Ship the Diamond

Whaling ship sets sail
On a long, crappy voyage.
Still, cheer up, says Bob.

Bob Dylan's Dream

I miss all my friends.
They gave me the world I craved.
Then we sought paychecks.

Bob Dylan's 115th Dream

Mad Captain Arab
Chases Bob through the Bowery
Like he's Moby Dick.

Bob Dylan's Blues

Bob has some troubles.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto
Won't help him fix them.

The Blues Yodel Series

Blues Yodel No. 1 (T for Texas)

T is for Texas.
It’s also for Thelma who
Wrecked me like a ship.

Blues Yodel No. 5

I'm troubled, lonely,
I'm poor. I like train smokestacks.
I need hats and shoes.

Blues Yodel No. 8 (Muleskinner Blues)

Muleskinner blues
Is a country-life portrait
With much yodeling.
