Woodie Guthrie’s dead and bob Dylan’s on radio two,
Woodie Guthrie’s dead and I wonder if I am too.
You want to be a poet, you got to keep on moving,
and bob Dylan is on radio two,
I never wanted to be a poet,
It’s a title I haven’t earned,
I never wanted to be a poet,
and yet it’s mine, I grasp it,
Can you tell I haven’t learned, what it is to be human.
They missed the depression, and us we miss the sixties,
all wish we’d never fought in Vietnam,
and what can I tell you,
but if you want to be a poet you’ve got to keep on moving,
and I’m stood still and standing, hanging on.
Never had one like you before,
and I’m trapped and uncertain, not moving on,
she thinks she in the house with you,
but me, I’m standing here not moving on,
keep on moving in this wormhole, keep on moving, that’s what I’ve got to do,
Because Woodie Guthrie’s dead and Bob Dylan,
well, it’s radio two, me I’ve got to keep on moving,
and that counts for people too.

    “a song is anything that can walk by itself / i am called a songwriter. a poem is a naked person… some people call me a poet””
    – Bob Dylan, from the liner notes of Bringing It All Back Home.
