Like A Rolling Stone, Blowin' in The Wind, Tangled up in Blue
Come mothers and fathers, Throughout the land, And don't criticize, What you can't understand, Your sons and your daughters, Are beyond your command, Your old road is rapidly aging, Please get out the new one if you cant lend your hand, Cause the times they are a-changin'

These lyrics relate to the time period because it expresses the youth and the way they aren't respecting or following parents guidelines. During the creation of the song many teenagers were rebelling against against authority whether it be parents, or law enforcement. The overall message of the song is to tell parents if they can't help with their old fading ways then they might as well join in cause the times they are a-changin'.
