A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

Lyrics

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 think I'm such a witty, clever little writer but then this song comes on, sending me back to kindergarten . So much to process, so little time to think. Thank you, Bob Dylan, for making a beyond-the-m o o n quality song.

I don't have the words to describe the intensity of such brilliant song. Each verse takes so much time to relate. Genius is not enough.

Wrote a paper about this song in college two semesters ago. Bob is the best.

i remember being at a joan baez concert at the Hollywood bowl sometime in the 60's. half way through her set she said she wanted to introduce a friend named bobby dylan to sing a few songs (i'm sure it was bobby she said, but it was a long time ago). then this scruffy guy comes out and starts singing songs like i'd never heard before. a hard rain's going to fall, go away from my window, it ain't me babe. i had a feeling i'd hear from this guy again.

No poet put his words to music like Dylan.

A hard rains gonna fall is about god asking his son what he is seeing as he walks the earth in modern times.

"I met a young man that was wounded in battle...I met a young man who was wounded in hatred...." great lyrics, and yes, hypnotic.

One hundred drummers would be one hell of a drumline, the trick would be having everybody playing in unison and in time, one metronome might not be enough, and no click track would ever stand alone in this type of rainstorm.

A Hard Rain is going To Fall is definarely one of my favorite Dylan songs. Definitely top 5. It has the special quality of being able to deliver a strong message without being able to be interpretate d verbally At least that's the way I see it. I'm sure others see it differently. To me it's like a Zen Koan. Albeit a long one.

@ Jim, Bob Dylan is a good poet, but when compared to the purity and genius of Lawrence Ferlinghetti he is just a very good poet. Great damn song. That hard rain has fallen. And it's still falling, but it's a good thing that I have an umbrella.

Freshman year in college (1963) my roommate had 2 records. Dylan was one of them, and I still listen to him almost everyday. Saw him in concert this summer. Not the Dylan of 1963, but it was BOB DYLAN, America's greatest poet.
