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…
The lyrics to this legendary song date back to 1963 and appeared on Bob Dylan’s third album, also called The Times they are a-Changin’.
One could argue that times always do that, but this sixties were revolutionary times, indeed.
Bob Dylan is now a man of 77 years old, but not ready to lay his guitar to rest just yet.
His more recent work has been a bit more mellow, with a touch of jazz here and there. In 2017 he released an album called Triplicate, featuring covers of classic American songs, such as the one below.
He will be playing at Roskilde Festival for the sixth time and there is reason to believe it will be legendary!
