Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
It's a tossup between "warrior/bore ya" and "songs she brang to me". Both lines make me cringe.

I say Neil wins by a whisker.

As for Mr Dylan, the greatest lyricist of our time, he should get honorable mention for "with unseen consciousness I possessed in my grip a magnificent mantlepiece, though its heart being chipped".
It's quite awkward, but it has a certain ragged grandeur at the same time. It's in "Ballad in Plain D", probably the most unfair song Bob ever cast at someone he was angry at (Carla Rotolo, Suze's older sister).
