Cocaine Blues

Bob describes rock stars.
They got the cocaine running
All around their brains.

Clothes Line Saga (revised)

Chore time, chez Dylan.
Bob hangs wash, talks to some guy,
Goes back in the house.

Clean-Cut Kid

Vietnam ruined him,
America finished him.
One poor, sad bastard.

City of Gold

Bob paints a picture
Of the New Jerusalem.
You should move right in!

The Christmas Song

Bob's alter ego,
Jack Frost, nips at your nose,
So roast his chestnuts.

Christmas Island

People love Christmas
Songs that are set on tropic
Islands. Dunno why.

The Christmas Blues

When Bob sings this song,
It could be a PSA
For wintertime blahs.

Choo Choo Ch'Boogie

Soldier returns home.
He needs work. He ends up poor.
He lives near the trains.

Chimes of Freedom

God can set you free,
Naked, restless refugees.
Bob sees it happen!

Changing of the Guards

This confusing song
Blends a man's obscure quest with
Tarot card symbols.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Bob takes Sam Cooke's song
Of civil rights and plays it
At the Apollo.

Champaign, Illinois

A Carl Perkins song
By Bob. It extols Champaign
Like it was New York.

Chain Gang

Only Sam Cooke could
Make chain gangs sound so lovely.
Dylan tried to once.
