THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
BOB DYLAN

COME GATHER ‘ROUND PEOPLE
WHERE EVER YOU ROAM
AND ADMIT THAT THE WATERS
AROUND YOU HAVE GROWN
AND ACCEPT IT THAT SOON
YOU’LL BE DRENCHED TO THE BONE
IF YOUR TIME TO YOU IS WORTH SAVIN’
THEN YOU BETTER START SWIMMIN’
OR YOU’LL SINK LIKE A STONE
FOR THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’

CHANGE CHANGE
CHANGE CHANGE
CHANGE CHANGE
CHANGE CHANGE

COME WRITERS AND CRITICS
WHO PROPHESY WITH YOUR PENS
AND KEEP YOUR EYES WIDE
THE CHANCE WON’T COME AGAIN
AND DON’T SPEAK TOO SOON
FOR THE WHEEL’S STILL IN SPIN
AND THERE’S NO TELLIN’ WHO THAT IT’S NAMIN’
FOR THE LOSER NOW WILL BE LATER TO WIN
FOR THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’

COME SENATORS CONGRESSMEN
PLEASE HEED THE CALL
DON’T STAND IN THE DOORWAY
DON’T BLOCK UP THE HALL
FOR HE THAT GETS HURT
WILL BE HE WHO HAS STALLED
THERE’S A BATTLE OUTSIDE AND IT’S RAGIN’
IT’LL SOON SHAKE YOUR WINDOWS
AND RATTLE YOUR WALLS
FOR THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’

CHANGE
OH OH OH
CHANGE
OH OH OH
CHANGE
IT’S A CHANGE OF LIFE

COME MOTHERS AND FATHERS
THROUGHOUT THE LAND
AND DON’T CRITICIZE
WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS
ARE BEYOND YOUR COMMAND
YOUR OLD ROAD IS RAPIDLY AGIN’
PLEASE GET OUT OF THE NEW ONE
IF YOU CAN’T LEND YOUR HAND
FOR THE TIMES THEY ARE
THE TIMES THEY ARE
THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
YES THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
CHANGE
OH OH OH
CHANGE
YES THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
