''The line it is drawnBob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941), U.S. singer, songwriter. The Times They Are A-Changin' (song), on the album The Times They Are A-Changin' (1964).
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now

And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'.''

Man Of Constant Sorrow
I am a man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I'll say goodbye to Colorado
Where I was born and partly raised
Through this open world I'm a-bound to ramble
Through ice and snow, sleet and rain
Im a-bound to ride that mornin' railroad

A face you'll never see no more
But here's one promise to ya
I'll see you on God's golden shore
I'm a-goin' back to Colorado
The place that I've started from
If I'd knowed how bad you'd treat me
Babe, I ...
They're selling postcards of the hanging
They're painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they're restless
