I got the pork chops, she got the pie
She ain't no angel and neither am I
Two of my favourite Dylan lines ever — apart from all the numerous others.
This is a great video montage to a soundtrack of Thunder on the Mountain, the first song on Dylan's thirty-second studio album, Modern Times, released in 2006.
What can I say about Dylan that hasn't been said a million times and in a million ways before? What I will say is that whatever you or the world are going through (emotionally, spiritually, politically, economically, physically, existentially) he's nailed that experience somewhere in one of his songs — perhaps in the whole song, perhaps in just a few words or lines. Where else can you find that except in the Tao Te Ching, the Holy Bible, Shakespeare or Winnie-the-Pooh?
Thunder on the mountain, fires on the moon
There's a ruckus in the alley and the sun will be here soon
Today's the day, gonna grab my trombone and blow
Well, there's hot stuff here and it's everywhere I go
