4th stanza of Bob Dylan's lyrics:  Sotheby's Fine Books and Manuscripts (N.Y. Dec.10th, 2010)


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 fading
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a changing


Bob Dylan left the mid-west and had two profound insights about life from his grandmother on his mother's side who lived with them.  Dylan states in his autobiography "Bob Dylan Chronicles" that she was filled with goodness and nobility and told him that - happiness is the road and we must find it every day of one's life - she told him to be kind to everyone because everyone you'll meet along the way is fighting a hard battle through life.

     He made his way to Greenwich Village, N.Y.  Here he would meet Woody Guthrie and would be introduced to Mac and Eve Mackenzie where at their 28th St. apartment he often resided through 1960
and 1961.  In the Village he performed at the Gaslight and Gerde's Folk City.

     When Dylan came to New York City he was not a songwriter but performed a repertoire of traditional folk songs.  His first album, recorded in 1961 and released in March 1962, had only two original compositions and ten folk and blues standards.  By the time of Dylan's record album, "the Free Wheelin' Bob Dylan", the ratio of original songs had grown to 90% Dylan songs.

     In late 1963 Bob Dylan wrote the lyrics to "The Times They Are A-Changin" and on this recent December 2010 Sotheby's N.Y. auctioned these Bob Dylan lyrics, written and signed in pencil "by Bob Dylan" on one sheet of unruled 3-holed notebook paper.

     The auctioneer, Marsha Malinowski, senior specialist of the International Books and Manuscripts Department, began the bidding in the low $100,000's and it rapidly rose to $300,00 and sold for $422,500.  The buyer was Adam Sender, a hedge-fund manager.

     A 30 old year master quitarist, singer and composer, Kristofer Ambrose, accompanied me to this auction and he considers Bob Dylan the quintessential poet and composer of the 20th century.  Kristofer has just written a profound song about the 2010 Chilean miners' miraculous 69 days ordeal under the earth.  It's titled Esperanza "Hope" and available on iTunes (

     I was also accompanied by the brilliant 20 year old jazz pianist, Dylan Meek, who greatly admires Bob Dylan and with his Dylan Meek Trio performs at The Garage
Cafe and Restaurant  ( in Greenwich Village on weekends.

     The existence of these Bob Dylan lyrics were brought out after the June 2010 Sotheby's auction of the John Lennon's lyrics to "A Day in the Life" which went for $1.2 million.*  Dylan recorded it in 1963 and also performed it at Carnegie Hall.
