Those old songs are my lexicon and prayer book. All my beliefs come out of those old songs, literally, anything from "Let Me Rest On That Peaceful Mountain" to "Keep On The Sunny Side." You can find all my philosophy in those old songs. I believe in a God of time and space, but if you ask me about that, my impulse is to point them back towards those songs.
Thus spake Mr. Bob Dylan
