Your songs from the early years were anthems for generations to come. They are prophetic in so many ways at many different levels. They touch the complex and deep longing of the soul for a real answer, for a solution to the problems we all face, and for some deep change of heart that will fix everything that's wrong. Your lyrics bring the ills of society and the pain and suffering of our individual lives to the surface in an instant, as soon as the sound reaches from the ears to the heart. The words beckon us to pay attention and turn our hearts to seek for the elusive dream, for the answer that's blowin' in the wind... in a place we haven't yet found. You never claimed to have the answer or to lead the revolution or anything like that. You just laid it out for all to see.
