“Beyond Here Lies Nothin”

In American Music, Bob Dylan on April 25, 2009 at 9:06 pm
Dylan’s latest studio album, Together Through Life, recently recorded  features 10 new songs including “Beyond Here Lies Nothin”.  This will be the 46th release from Dylan, following his Platinum album Modern Times which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2006.

Oh well, I love you pretty baby
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
Just as long as you stay with me
The whole world is my throne
Beyond here lies nothin’
Nothin’ we can call our own

Well, I’m movin’ after midnight
Down boulevards of broken cars
Don’t know what I’d do without it
Without this love that we call ours
Beyond here lies nothin’
Nothin’ but the moon and stars

Down every street there’s a window
And every window’s made of glass
We’ll keep on lovin’ pretty baby
For as long as love will last
Beyond here lies nothin’
But the mountains of the past

Well, my ship is in the harbor
And the sails are spread
Listen to me, pretty baby
Lay your hand upon my head
Beyond here lies nothin’
Nothin’ done and nothin’ said

Bob Dylan and Your Home Garden

In Bob Dylan on March 23, 2009 at 12:46 pm

WILL CONGRESS WIPE OUT HOME GARDENS, GROWERS MARKETS?

“The Internet’s buzzing about a bill in Congress its sponsor and supporters say is vital for protecting consumers from food-borne illnesses, but critics claim would place all U.S. food production “from farm to fork” under control of federal bureaucrats, effectively destroying family farms and farmers markets in the process and hijacking the burgeoning organic food movement.”

And from Dylan’s Union Sun Down from Infidels released in 1983:

Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the USA
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way.

Wait for these lyrics to come around!

Well, the job that you used to have

They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador
The unions are big business, friend
And they’re going out like a dinosaur
They used to grow food in Kansas 
Now they want to grow it on the moon and eat it raw
I can see the day coming when even your home garden
Is gonna be against the law.”
