Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues", also known as "Talkin' John Birch Society Blues" and "Talkin' John Birch Blues", is a protest song and talking blues song written by singer-songwriter Bob Dylan in 1962.
Written by: Bob Dylan. Well, I was feelin’ sad and feelin’ blue I didn’t know what in the world I wus gonna do Them Communists they wus comin’ around They wus in the air They wus on the ground They wouldn’t gimme no peace. So I run down most hurriedly And joined up with the John Birch Society I got me a secret membership card And started off a-walkin’ down the road Yee-hoo, I’m a real John Bircher now! Look out you Commies! Now we all agree with Hitler’s views Although he killed six million Jews It don’t matter too much that he was a Fascist At least you can’t say he was a Communist!
The first cut, Mixed Up Confusion was my introduction to Bob Dylan’s very first 45, as I have written about previously
Born in Duluth, MN, Bob Dylan (b. Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941) was raised in Hibbing, MN, from the age of six. As a child he learned how to play guitar and harmonica, forming a rock & roll band called the Golden Chords when he was in high school. Following his graduation in 1959, he began studying art at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. While at college, he began performing folk songs at coffeehouses under the name Bob Dylan, taking his last name from the poet Dylan Thomas. Furthermore, several tracks recorded for the album - including "Talking John Birch Society Blues" - were eliminated from the album before its release. Comprised entirely of original songs, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan made a huge impact in the . folk community, and many performers began covering songs from the album.
