  • Lyrics:

    (It don't come easy, you know it don't come easy)
    (It don't come easy, you know it don't come easy)

    Got to pay your dues if you want to sing the blues
    And you know it don't come easy
    You don't have to shout or leap about
    You can even play them easy
    Forget about the past and all your sorrow
    The future won't last
    It will soon be your tomorrow

    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust
    And you know it don't come easy
    And this love of mine keeps growing all the time
    And you know it don't come easy
    Open up your heart, let's come together
    Use a little luck, and we will make it work out better

    Got to pay your dues if you want to sing the blues
    And you know it don't come easy
    You don't have to shout or leap about
    You can even play them easy
    Please remember peace is how we make it
    Here withing your reach, is your freedom to take it

    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust
    And you know it don't come easy
    (de de de) growing all the time
    And you know it don't come easy

    Lyrics:
    
    I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
    While my guitar gently weeps
    I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
    Still my guitar gently weeps
    I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love
    I don't know how someone controlled you
    They bought and sold you.
    
    I look at the world and I notice it's turning
    While my guitar gently weeps
    With every mistake we must surely be learning
    Still my guitar gently weeps
    I don't know how you were diverted
    You were perverted too
    I don't know how you were inverted
    No one alerted you.
    
    I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
    While my guitar gently weeps
    Look at you all . . .
    Still my guitar gently weeps.

    I was born in a crossfire hurricane
    And I howled at my mama in the driving rain
    But it's alright now in fact it's a gas
    And it's alright, hey
    I'm Jumping Jack Flash it's a gas gas gas
    
    I was raised by a toothless bearded hag
    I was schooled with a strap right across my back
    But it's alright now in fact it's a gas
    And it's alright, hey
    I'm Jumping Jack Flash it's a gas gas gas
    
    But it's alright now in fact it's a gas

    [Jumpin' Jack Flash end - 3:48]
    
    Well, you know that I love my woman
    But just sometimes she just don't treat me right
    Yeah, I woke up this morning and I looked her in the eye
    She said sweet daddy, you got what I want
    But you ain't givin' it to me
    Oh, and it hurt me deep down into my soul
    And I had [...] out of the door
    I was [..] my heart [...]
    Gonna ever see my baby no more
    
    I went a-walkin' down the street
    And I was ashamed to look at anyoone I meet
    Ooh, [..] and there she was standing
    Leaning up against a lamp post
    (Well, tell it, tell it)
    
    [Youngblood - 4:35]
    
    I saw her standing on the corner
    A yellow ribbon in her hair
    All night long my heart was shudder
    Look at there, look at there
    You're the one, look at there
    Youngblood, youngblood, youngblood
    Woo, I can't get you out of my mind
    
    And I couldn't sleep, I went on crying
    And I saw the risin' of the sun
    All night long my heart was crying
    You're the one, you're the one
    You're the one, you're the one
    Youngblood, youngblood, youngblood
    Well, I can't get you out of my mind
    
    [...] she looked so tough
    I had to follow her all the way home
    And when we were there
    I met her dad, he said:
    You'd better leave my daughter alone
    
    And I couldn't sleep, I went on crying
    And I saw the risin' of the sun
    All night long my heart was crying
    You're the one, you're the one
    You are the one, you're the one
    Youngblood, youngblood, youngblood
    Woo, I can't get enough of your love

    Woo, you're breaking my heart in two
    (Youngblood, youngblood, youngblood)
    
    [Youngblood end - 7:08]
    
    Ooh, and I looked at that 19 year old girl
    Right in the eye.
    And I said you look so sweet to me darlin'
    But there's one thing I got to tell you.
    You know, I've got me a fine old lady
    Lying back there in that bedroom at home
    And I think I got to get hack to her.
    
    Ooh, you ain't interested in my, she said.
    [...] walkin' home down the street, back to my pet
    And I crawled and I snugged and I crawled back in the bedroom
    
    My baby looked at me with her great big blue bedroom eyes
    And she said:
    Wooh, dad where have you been all night long?
    Yet I know I told you to get away from me
    I told you to leave me alone
    Wooh, but I had a chain in your heart
    And I've been needin' you all night long
    [...] needin' the good thing
    I ain't had none of the good thing
    
    Yeah and I looked at my baby and I said
    Baby, I said, what is it that I've got that you want, yeah?
    She looked at me and she said, real slow, real soft, real sweet
    
    She said this right here:
    
    [Jumpin' Jack Flash reprise - 8:24]
    
    Yeah, it's alright now, in fact it's a gas
    Well, it's alright now, in fact it's a gas
    But, it's alright now, in fact it's a gas
    It's alright, it's alright now
    
    [Jumpin' Jack Flash end - 9:14]
    
    Yeah, now ev'rybody's got a young lady at home that they love
    But sometimes the things, they just don't go right
    But I want to tell you one thing, and it's for sure
    You treat your woman like you treat yourself
    Ev'rything is gonna be alright
    Yeah it's gonna be alright now.

    Song:           A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall  
    Duration:       6.22
    Track No.:      2-3
    Composer:       Bob Dylan
    Vocals:         Bob Dylan
    Year:           1971

    Lyrics:
    
    (George: Like to bring on a friend of us all, Mr. Bob Dylan!)
    
    Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
    And 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,
    It's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    
    Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
    And what did you see, my darling young one?
    I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it,
    I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
    I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
    I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
    I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
    I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    
    What did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
    And what did you hear, my darling young one?
    I heard the sound of a thunder that roared out a warnin',
    I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
    Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin',
    Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin',
    I heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin',
    Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    
    Who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
    Who did you meet, my darling young one?
    I met a young child beside a dead pony,
    I met a white man who walked a black dog,
    I met a young woman whose body was burning,
    I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
    I met one man who was wounded in love,
    I met another man who was wounded in hatred,
    It's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    
    Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
    And what'll you do now, my darling young one?
    I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
    I'll walk to the depths of the deepest dark forest,
    Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
    Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
    Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
    The executioner's face is always well hidden
    Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
    Where black is the color and none is the number,
    And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
    Reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
    Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
    But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    
    It's a hard rain's a gonna fall
    It's a hard rain's a gonna fall

    Lyrics:
    
    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    How many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they're forever banned?
    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.
    
    How many years can a mountain exist
    Before it's washed to the sea?
    How many years can some people exist
    Before they're allowed to be free?
    How many times can a man turn his head,
    Pretending he just doesn't see?
    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.
    
    How many times can a dumb man look up
    Before he can see the sky?
    How many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    How many deaths will it take till he knows
    Too many people have died?
    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.

    Lyrics:
    
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
    
    Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand,
    Vanished from my hand,
    Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
    My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
    I have no one to meet
    And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.
    
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
    
    Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship,
    My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
    My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
    To be wanderin'.
    I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
    Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
    I promise to go under it.
    
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
    
    Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
    Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
    The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one 	hand waving free,
    Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
    With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow.
    
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Lyrics:
    
    Nobody feels any pain
    Tonight as I stand inside the rain
    Ev'rybody knows
    That Baby's got new clothes
    But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
    Have fallen from her curls.
    She takes just like a woman
    And she makes love just like a woman
    And she aches just like a woman
    But she breaks just like a little girl.
    
    Queen Mary, she's my friend
    Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
    Nobody has to guess 
    That Baby can't be blessed
    Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
    With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls.
    She takes just like a woman
    She makes love just like a woman
    And she aches just like a woman
    But she breaks just like a little girl.
    
    It was raining from the first
    And I was dying there of thirst
    So I came in here
    And your long-time curse hurts
    But what's worse
    Is this pain in here
    I can't stay in here
    Ain't it clear that
    
    That I just can't fit
    Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
    But when we meet again
    Introduced as friends
    Please don't let on that you knew me when
    I was hungry and it was your world.
    Ah, you fake just like a woman, yeah you do and
    You make love just like a woman, yeah and
    You ache just like a woman
    But you break just like a little girl.

    Something in the way she moves
    Attracts me like no other lover
    Something in the way she woos me
    
    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe and how
    
    Somewhere in the way she smiles
    That I don't need no other lover
    Something in her style that shows me
    
    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe and how
    
    You're asking me will my love grow
    I don't know, I don't know
    You stick around and it may show
    I don't know, I don't know
    
    Something in the way she knows
    All I have to do is think of her
    Something in the things she shows me
    
    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe and how

    Where so many people are dying fast
    And it sure looks like a mess
    I've never seen such distress
    Now won't you lend your hand and understand
    Relieve the people of Bangla Desh
    
    Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh
    Such a great disaster - I don't understand
    But it sure looks like a mess
    I've never known such distress
    Now please don't turn away, I want to hear you say
    Relieve the people of Bangla Desh
    Relieve Bangla Desh
    
    Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh
    Now it may seem so far from where we all are
    It's something we can't neglect
    It's something I can't neglect
    Now won't you give some bread to get the starving fed
    We've got to relieve Bangla Desh
    Relieve the people of Bangla Desh
