You’re Gonna Have To Serve Somebody

Posted in friends, life, poetry, quotes by amoslanka on February 18, 2009

“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

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.”

»» Bob Dylan

I can hardly express my own my humbling fortune of having many of the friends and acquaintances I’ve come to know over the years. This piece was provided to me in context of a correspondence with a friend from Colorado, who’s life and soul mean much to me, despite our limited friendship, both in present and past. May he be blessed and find peace.

    I remember seeing Dylan live for the first time a few years back at the Kent State Folk festival, he opened with this. It blew my mind. It was a total spiritual experience for me.
