Transcript of Bob Dylans Protest Songs and the impact they had on the 1960's

"The Times They Are a-Changing'" that evoked the most emotion The 3 songs Relation to Poetry and the impact they had on the 1960's Bob Dylan Protest Songs This song portrays the fact that times are indeed changing. it is a timeless tune that shows no matter what situation, there will always be a little change. The most moving factor in this song is who its addressed to. In several stanzas of the song Dylan addresses congressmen, senators, mothers, and fathers.
An example would be when he says "Your sons and daughters are beyond your command" talking to the parents of the children of that era. He talks about how their times were different, and things move at a different pace now-a-days. This was kind of like a friendly, hey, get with the program. Come gather 'round people
Wherever 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'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
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 is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can'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 a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'. Involved with the Civil Rights Movement Bob Dylan Started to get fed up with the folk movement and the people involved Played at the March on Washington Very talented musician, artist, and poet. The civil rights movement was the first social movement in the 1960's. This movement produced Martin Luther King, Jr. The civil rights movement took root in the 1950s but greatly expanded in power in the 1960s. It's origins were among black Americans in the South who faced racial discrimination and segregation.
'The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll'
(1964) This is one of Bob Dylan's Top 10 protest songs, about the death of a 51-year-old black maid. She was murdered by a young, rich tobacco farmer in Maryland, who only had to stay in jail for 6 months. “William Zanzinger killed poor Hattie Carroll / With a cane that he twirled around his diamond ring finger” antiwar movement within the United States gained momentum as student protesters, countercultural hippies, and even many mainstream Americans denounced the war. Protests against the war and the military draft grew increasingly violent 'Hurricane' In 'Hurricane,' Dylan shows the story of the false imprisonment of black boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, He brings up the acts of racism what Dylan claims as a false trial and conviction of a murder that Dylan believes Carter did not commit. “All of Rubin's cards were marked in advance / The trial was a pig-circus he never had a chance / The judge made Rubin's witnesses drunkards from the slums,” Since Bob Dylan was not only a musician, but a poet too, he definitely had a special way with words. Take away the instruments and you have yourself a well written, insightful poem. His words were relevant yet timeless, and spoke to the audience in some way or fashion. Come gather 'round people
Wherever 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'

For the times they are a-changin'.
