Thread Name: Lyr Req: Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall (Bob Dylan)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hard Rain's a Gonna FAll
Its hard to ascribe motive or affix blame in Dylan's case.....whether it was Bob or his publisher/recording company/other handlers, but the fact is it did happen and as Malcolm so well says, others were somewhat more honest about it. Dylan's songs do stand on their own merits, as do others including Woody, but Dylan admitted far less "borrowing" at times.

Here's a site worth reading and as the author says: The borrowing might have been unknowing, a conscious tribute, or occasionally plain, outright theft. Its a fun read in any case.......CLICK HERE.
