Once upon a time you dressed so fine You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you? People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall" You thought they were all kiddin' you “Once upon a time” when you were in fantasy land, in a story-book like land “you
 so fine” you applied medication to a social wound and it was satisfactory; it worked just fine “You threw the bums a dime” you casually gave colored folk welfare, such as Aid To Dependent Children (ADC) wherein mothers were paid by the child thus increasing the Black birthrate “in your prime didn't you?” on a federal level as in
U.S. Government Grade A Prime
 or as in ‘The prime rate’ “People'd call” demand a meeting of; convene a legislative session “say Beware doll” and say beware you doll, you who acts so kindheartedly “you're bound to fall” you are destined to decline in political influence and in ratio to the non-White population “You thought they were all kiddin' you” and you thought they were joking; putting you on and America could never be overrun by non-Whites. You used to laugh about Everybody that was hangin' out Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud  About having to be scrounging for your next meal “You used to
 about /
Everybody that was hangin' out
” you used to laugh off, not take seriously, all the pregnant Black welfare mothers on  ADC “Now you don't talk so loud” now you are not so insistent, no more loud denials, Mr. White American? “Now you don't seem so proud?” now you no longer show racial pride, do you White man? “About having to be scrounging” about having to be foraging in an effort to acquire something at no cost, asking for charity “for your next meal” so that you can feed your own White American family while your tax dollars goes to feed countless illegitimate Black babies. How does it feel? To be on your own With no direction home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone? “How does it feel” sarcastic: it doesn’t feel so good does it? “To be on your own” to have lost your birthright as a White American “With no direction” with no authoritative indication, order and command “home” to get you to your goal of preserving your race “Like a complete unknown” like a member of the silent majority, like a person whose action and effect is unknown and unpredictable “Like a rolling stone?” like a Rightwing political force that is gathering momentum. “Stone” as reactionary, Rightwing; to the Left in
It Ain’t Me Babe 1964
 “Go melt back into the night / Everything inside is made of
The Times They Are a-Changin’ 1964,
 “And accept it that soon / You'll be drenched to the
” to the core;
Property of Jesus 1981
 “He's the property of Jesus / Resent him to the
” “If your time” life “to you is
worth savin'
 / Then you better start swimmin'” you better get into the swim of things “Or you'll sink like a
 / For the times they are a-changin'.” You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely But you know you only used to get juiced in it  And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street  And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it “You've gone to the finest school all right,” at one time you attended safe, highly rated public schools when the Rightists controlled America “Miss Lonely” where the children there were all White and well behaved, one
 race “But you know you only
used to
 get juiced in it” but you lost political power over your school district and now a bunch of niggers are being bused in. “Juice” slang, political power and influence; clout “And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the
” and you were brought up in a civilized fashion with a mother and father not by a single mother in the slums so you don’t know how to survive in a jungle, the ghetto “
” the streets of a city viewed as the scene of crime, poverty, and dereliction “And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it” and now thanks to these race mixing politicians whose children attend private
schools the thing you love best in the world, your children, are being mixed in with a bunch of savages. “Juice” as influence;
What Was It You Wanted 1989,
 to the Communists, “What was it you wanted? Can I be of any use? Can I do something for you? Do I have enough
? Wherever you're off to, one thing you should know. You still got seven hundred miles yet still to go." You said you'd never compromise With the mystery tramp, but know you realize He's not selling any alibis  As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes  And say do you want to make a deal? “You said you'd never compromise” you said you would never make a concession to something detrimental and pejorative; compromise your morality when it came to dealing with certain people such as “With the mystery” with a person that arouses curiosity and suspense because of an unknown, obscure, and enigmatic quality; a racist leader “tramp” who will tread down; trample upon these
 until they are driven back into the ghetto or shipped off to Africa “but now you realize” but after having your kids thrown in with a bunch of baboons it has suddenly dawned on you “He's not selling any alibis” racists are not making any excuses for these  jigaboos “As you stare into the vacuum of his
” as you look with wonderment into his thoughts wherein he proposes to vacuum, make clean by removing dirt, filth, or unwanted people like niggers “And say do you want to make a deal?” now you have come to your senses and are willing to compromise and you say how about formulating programs and policies to promote economic recovery and social reform that would benefit Whites like a racist variation of the New Deal? Dylan is actually promoting George Lincoln Rockwell, the most dangerous Nazi in America at that time. You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns When they all come down and did tricks for you You never understood that it ain't no good You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
