Bob Dylan's Thunder on the Mountain By: Jissel Garcia

Bob Dylan was born May 24, 1941 as Robert Allen Zimmerman. He is one of the most influential singer-songwriters of the 20th Century. His career started in the 1960's with songs about social issues such as war and civil rights. While he was attending college he began to perform folk and country songs, getting the name Bob Dylan.

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

Even though there is so much happening all around us all the time, it reflects the power of change,

I was thinkin' 'bout Alicia Keys, couldn't keep from crying, When she was born in Hell's Kitchen, I was living down the line, I'm wondering where in the world Alicia Keys could be, I been looking for her even clear through Tennessee

The commentary reflecting Alicia Keys was to show her support, or at least he tried to because she was involved in various causes and he wasn't.

Feel like my soul is beginning to expand, Look into my heart and you will sort of understand, You brought me here, now you're trying to run me away, The writing's on the wall, come read it, come see what it says.

He has created various music and we as fans and critics have interpreted them. Music is who he is and that's how he expresses himself. He is changing and learning new ideas.

Thunder on the mountain, rolling like a drum, Gonna sleep over there, that's where the music coming from, I don't need any guide, I already know the way, Remember this, I'm your servant both night and day

He isn't questioning about where he's headed because he knows whats ahead and is looking forward for it.

The pistols are poppin' and the power is down, I'd like to try somethin' but I'm so far from town, The sun keeps shinin' and the North Wind keeps picking up speed, Gonna forget about myself for a while, gonna go out and see what others need

He wants people to stop being selfish and help others who may need it.

I've been sitting down studying the art of love, I think it will fit me like a glove, I want some real good woman to do just what I say, Everybody got to wonder what's the matter with this cruel world today

Thunder on the mountain rolling to the ground, Gonna get up in the morning walk the hard road down, Some sweet day I'll stand beside my king, I wouldn't betray your love or any other thing

Gonna raise me an army, some tough sons of bitches, I'll recruit my army from the orphanages, I been to St. Herman's church and I've said my religious vows, I've sucked the milk out of a thousand cows

He wants to see changes in the world and in our nation.
