Message to the people

Why write this song? Bob Dylan himself said that... Dylan recalled writing the song as a deliberate attempt to create an anthem of change for the moment. In 1985, he told Cameron Crowe: "This was definitely a song with a purpose. It was influenced of course by the Irish and Scottish ballads ...'Come All Ye Bold Highway Men', 'Come All Ye Tender Hearted Maidens'. I wanted to write a big song, with short concise verses that piled up on each other in a hypnotic way. The civil rights movement and the folk music movement were pretty close for a while and allied together at that time." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Times_They_Are_a-Changin'_(song) [6] 1-1-1-2-1-2 Why?
