Lenny Bruce - Bob Dylan
    Lenny Bruce is dead but his ghost lives on an' on
    Never did get any Golden Globe award, never made it to Synanon
    He was an outlaw that's for sure
    More of an outlaw than you ever were
    Lenny Bruce is gone
    But his spirit's livin' on an' on

    Maybe he had some problems, maybe some things that he couldn't work out
    But he sure was funny an' he sure tolf the truth an' he knew what he was talkin' about
    Never robbed any churches nor cut off any baby's head
    He just took the folks in high places an' he shined a light in their heads
    He's on some other shore, he didn't wanna live anymore

    Lenny Bruce is dead but he didn't commit any crime
    He just had the insight to rip off the lid before its time
    I rode with him in a taxi once
    Only for a mile an' a half, seemed it took a couple of months
    Lenny Bruce moved on an' the ones that killed him are gone

    They said that he was sick 'cause he didn't play by the rules
    He just showed the wise men of his days to be nothin' more than fools
    They stamped him an' they labelled him like they do with pants an' shirts
    He fought a war on a battlefiled where every victory hurts
    Lenny Bruce was bad
    He was the brother that you never had
