Lyric Sheets: Bob Dylan Revisited:

In Opry suit and stetson

Performing for The Pope

Is this the rhinestone cow-goy

Abandon ye all hope

If Dylan fans harass you

Then this is what to say:


And then they go away

The long ago converted

The legions of the flared

The prematurely bearded

The cryptic curly-haired

The Isle of Wight internees

To whom the songs make sense

Those pre-patched denim spirits

Who never left their tents

"How can you not like Dylan?

- A song like `Mighty Quinn' "

"Cos Manfred Mann was better"

You tell them with a grin

"And Donovan was sharper"

You cite as further proof

Now stand well back and watch as

The sucker hits the roof
