Inspired by President Carter quoting Dylan in his Inauguration Adress.
"Mr. President, you have Premier d'Estaing of France... the Senate majority leader, Mr. O'Neill, and... Mr. Robert... Dylan?... waiting outside."
"Oh, Bobby's here? Send... send 'im right on in."
"Hi, Mr. Prez..."
"Hold on, Bobby, I want you to dig this... how's this grab you?"
(PLAYS AN AWFUL "THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN'" HARMONICA SOLO)
"To tell you the truth, and it ain't no lie,
I've heard worse, but I'd just let it ride.
It's tough enough to be what you are,
So you be the Prez and I be the star....
(LAST LINE SUNG TO TUNE OF LAST LINE OF "WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE") ... Babe."
"Oh, that's far out, Bob..."
"Jimmy, I came to tell you what's on my mind,
I'll tell you straight, but I don't have much time..."
"Now, before you go on, Bobby -- I have a feeling I know what you're gonna say:
You know, the times they are a-changin',
And the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind -- the answer is blowin' in the wind.
I'm not a master of war,
And I often felt a hard rain's a-gonna fall,
So if it does I have to have some shelter from the storm
'Cause God is on my side.
And, Bob, even the president of the United States has to stand naked..."
"It's a pitiful crime, you keep usin' my line --
E'vrything you say is from yesterday... babe."
JIMMY CARTER (strumming guitar):
"Sorry you feel that way, but... as long as you're here...
'Eight Days a Week' (sung)... I'm... maybe you could... I wonder if maybe you could come over here and help me some with my fingerin'..."
"I gotta get goin', I ain't gettin' nowhere;
I came for a purpose, but you're not playin' fair.
So I'm takin' my songs back to the streets,
To the plain-talkin' people too hungry to heal."
