TRUMPETS OF THE OCEAN

Lyrics by Robert Hunter

Vocals, David Gans

 

The day the constitution became a metaphor
I was laying tile on my lady's kitchen floor
A lot of troubled thoughts ran through my mind
But I kept laying tile in the same straight line

Walk a crooked mile, hell, you might as well walk ten
Meet your old self coming round the corner of a bend
Nothing new here, why should we pretend?
The trumpets of the ocean in a broken-hearted blend

The trumpets in the midnight, trumpets in the dawn
Trumpets of the queen's rook, trumpets of the pawn
Trumpets in the stratosphere, trumpets of the rock
The trumpets of the sky boat, sailing into dock

The trumpets of the ocean howl, let them roar
Let them wail, let them soar
Thunder in the belly of the whale never more

Why Bob Dylan Won The Nobel Prize

You can call him author & read his book

You can say he’s this great writer or that doctor with the look

You can call him the actor & see him in a movie role

If the artist were a wheel we’d pay to see him roll

He’s the best at what he does whatever that may be

Playin’ the guitar & harp  & keys to history

Who can say it better like the wind that blows

He's a bandleader who knows life is like a rose

 

Students of his comparative literature

Recognize him by the sound of his signature

Beat on the instrument of present communication

Launching poems transformed by rhythm

Into songsheets on the workstation

 

As we listen to him in our English class

We write with inspiration & wise sass

Bring our poems wherever we go

Motivating us to keep on as we grow

 In the shadow reflect 'n glow

Watchin' the river flow

 lookin' to see

 painting a picture

 still as can be
