He could play Everybody Must Get Stoned.
I vote "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat."
Ballad of a Thin Man.
Wouldn't it be cool if he covered "Won't Get Fooled Again"
Not Dark Yet.. but its getting there
It Hurts Me Too.. a sympathetic Dylan?
Maybe something by his son..One Headlight Hey, come on try a littleNothing is foreverThere's got to be something better than In the middleBut me & Cinderella, We put it all togetherWe can drive it homeWith one headlight
I think Dylan could do this song.. his way.DisappointmentA disappointment. Oh, you shouldn't have done, You couldn't have done, You wouldn't have done the things you did then. And we could've been happy. What a piteous thing, A hideous thing was tainted by the rest, But it won't get any harder, And I hope you'll find your way again. And it won't get any higher, And it all boils down to what you did, Then... [X 8]In the night we fight, I fled, you're right. It was exactly then, it was exactly then, I decided, decided, decided, decide. Oh, that threw you out. In the night we fight, I fled, you're right. It was exactly then, it was exactly then, I decided, decided, decided, decided. Mmm... Mmmm... But it won't be any harder, And I hope you'll find your way again. And it won't get any higher, And it all boils down to what you did, Then... [X 8]Disappointment... [X 6]Then... [X 8]

If I recall correctly, Obama claimed that "Maggie's Farm" is his favorite Dylan tune.It might be strangely appropriate!
Bob should commiserate with Obama about his wife Michelle and play "You Gotta Serve Somebody". Michelle is actually descended from enslaved African-Americans, while Barack has been a favored child among European-Americans. The slavery experience ingrained a Legalism into the social order requiring service or punishment by a system of rules. Barak/Barry never faced that aspect of African American culture until he married into it.
@ trad You Gotta Serve Somebody
Did anyone ever determine if Obama's white ancestors were slave-owners?Or his Nigerian ancestors, for that matter? :)
@ ReveMaggie's Farm
Did anyone ever determine if Obama's white ancestors were slave-owners?professor Gates is keeping it close to vest.
Blows on harmonica: ♪ ♫I just went over all of Dylan's songs, and have concluded, he's like totally wierd.Blows on harmonica: ♪ ♫
I'd like "Senor".Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeledWas that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field.A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ringSaid, "Son, this ain't a dream no more, it's the real thing."Senor, senor, you know their hearts is as hard as leather.Well, give me a minute, let me get it together.I just gotta pick myself up off the floor.I'm ready when you are, senor.Senor, senor, let's disconnect these cables,Overturn these tables.This place don't make sense to me no more.Can you tell me what we're waiting for, senor?
Taking into account P.J.O'Rourk's well known excerpt from "Parliament of Whores": I have only one firm belief about the American political system, and that is this: God is a Republican and Santa Claus is a Democrat. God is an elderly or, at any rate, middle aged male, a stern fellow, patriarchal rather than paternal and a great believer in rules and regulations. He holds men accountable for their actions. He has little apparent concern for the material well being of the disadvantaged. He is politically connected, socially powerful and holds the mortgage on literally everything in the world. God is difficult. God is unsentimental. It is very hard to get into God's heavenly country club. Santa Claus is another matter. He's cute. He's nonthreatening. He's always cheerful. And he loves animals. He may know who's been naughty and who's been nice, but he never does anything about it. He gives everyone everything they want without the thought of quid pro quo. He works hard for charities, and he's famously generous to the poor. Santa Claus is preferable to God in every way but one: There is no such thing as Santa Claus.I would recommend this Bob Dylan song.
Pretty much all the same stuff he sang in the sixties, but at the boomers instead of with them.Don't trust anyone over 30!
I shall be released
Perhaps Dylan would like to cement his reputation as a rebel and play a few cuts from his Infidels album."Neighborhood Bully," or "Union Sundown." And if he really wants to get some attention, he could sing "Jokerman"
I'll go with "You Gotta Serve Somebody", too. But also note that the irony would be completely lost on the president.Or maybe "All Along the Watchtower", for its opening line.
"Momma take this badge off of meI can't use it anymore"
Slow Train would be a good one for the Chosen Demagogue.
"I used to care, but things have changed.""Everything is broken.""I hate myself for loving you, and the weakness that it showed.""You're an idiot, babe. It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe.""It's all over now, baby blue."
