  • Mother of Muses, sing for me
    Sing of the mountains and the deep, dark sea
    Sing of the lakes and the nymphs of the forest
    Sing your hearts out, all your women of the chorus
    Sing of honor and fate and glory be
    Mother of Muses, sing for me

    Mother of Muses, sing for my heart
    Sing of a love too soon to depart
    Sing of the heroes who stood alone
    Whose names are engraved on tablets of stone
    Who struggled with pain, so the world could go free
    Mother of Muses, sing for me

    Sing of Sherman, Montgomery and Scott
    And of Zhukov, and Patton, and the battles they fought
    Who cleared the path for Presley to sing
    Who carved the path for Martin Luther King
    Who did what they did and they went on their way
    Man, I could tell their stories all day

    I'm falling in love with Calliope
    She don't belong to anyone, why not give her to me?
    She's speaking to me, speaking with her eyes
    I've grown so tired of chasing lies
    Mother of Muses, wherever you are
    I've already outlived my life by far

    Mother of Muses, unleash your wrath
    Things I can't see, they're blocking my path
    Show me your wisdom, tell me my fate
    Put me upright, make me walk straight
    Forge my identity from the inside out
    You know what I'm talking about

    Take me to the river, release your charms
    Let me lay down a while in your sweet, loving arms
    Wake me, shake me, free me from sin
    Make me invisible, like the wind
    Got a mind that ramble, got a mind that roam
    I'm travelin' light and I'm a-slow coming home Writer/s: Bob Dylan
