Etta James album Matriarch of the Blues has some great songs but the lyrics are sometimes hard to understand. Does anyone know where I can find the lyrics to the songs? I'm especially interested in Gotta Serve Somebody, Don't Let My Baby Ride. ??? Thanks, Zorro.

I'd love to hear her version.

Zorro,

Got them for you. I hope this is what you're looking for.

GOTTA SERVE SOMEBODY
(Bob Dylan)

You may be an ambassador to England or France.
You may like to gamble. You might like to dance.
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world.
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls.

CHO: But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed.
You're gonna have to serve somebody.
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord,
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

You might be a rock 'n' roll addict prancing on the stage.
You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage.
You may be a businessman or some high degree thief.
They may call you Doctor or they may call you Chief. CHO.

You may be a state trooper. You might be a young Turk.
You may be the head of some big TV network.
You may be rich or poor. You may be blind or lame.
You may be living in another country under another name. CHO.

You may be a construction worker working on a home.
You may be living in a mansion or you might live in a dome.
You might own guns and you might even own tanks.
You might be somebody's landlord. you might even own banks. CHO.

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride.
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side.
You may be workin' in a barbershop. You may know how to cut hair.
You may be somebody's mistress, may be somebody's heir. CHO.

Might like to wear cotton. Might like to wear silk.
Might like to drink whiskey. Might like to drink milk.
You might like to eat caviar. You might like to eat bread.
You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed. CHO.

You may call me Terry. You may call me Timmy.
You may call me Bobby. You may call me Zimmy.
You may call me R. J. You may call me Ray.
You may call me anything but no matter what you say. CHO.

Well thanks to one and all. I had no idea that that is a Bob Dylan song. Etta James does a great job on her album. Some really good blues songs... Thanks again. Z

Ah, Bob Strikes again. That would probably make for a neat thread. "I had no idea it was Dylan who wrote..."
