"The Times They Are 'A Changin"- written by Bob Dylan
The song was released in 1964
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 the battle outside raging, It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, For the times they are a-changing
Bob Dylan is telling them to hear the call from those who want change and don't block them from fighting for freedom. If senators and congressmen don't improve the country, they will be hurt.
This song reflects the generation gap and the political divide marking American culture in the 1960's. Bob Dylan supported the Civil Rights Movement.
