    "Gotta Serve Somebody" Lyrics

    Bob Dylan

    You may be an ambassador
    To England or France
    You might like to gamble
    You might like to dance
    You may be the heavyweight
    Champion of the world
    You might be a socialite
    With a long string of pearls

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes indeed, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil

    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    Might be a Rock-n-roll addict
    Prancing on the stage
    Money, Drugs at your command
    Women in a cage
    You may be a businessman
    Or some high DJV(?)
    They may call you doctor
    Or they may call you chief

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes you are, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    You may be a state trooper
    You might be a young tough
    You may be the head
    Of some big TV network
    You may be rich or poor
    You may be blind or lame
    Maybe livin' in another Country
    Under another name

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes you are, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    Maybe a construction worker
    Workin' on a home
    Might be living' in a Mansion

    You might live in a dome
    You may own guns
    And you may even own tanks
    You may be someone's landlord
    You may even own banks

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    You may be a Preacher
    Preaching Spiritual Pride
    Maybe a City Councilman
    Takin' bribes on the side
    Maybe working in a Barbershop
    You may know how to cut hair
    You may be somebody's mistress
    Maybe somebody's heir

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    Might like to wear cotton
    Might like to wear silk
    Might like to drink whiskey
    Might like to drink milk
    Might like to eat caviar
    You might like to eat bread
    Maybe sleeping on the floor
    Sleepin' in a king-size bed

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes indeed, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    Or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    You may call me Terry
    You may call me Timmy
    You may call me Bobby
    Or you may call me Zimmy
    You may call me RJ
    You may call me Ray
    You may call me anything
    No matter what you say

    You're still gonna have to serve somebody
    Yes, you're gonna have to serve somebody
    Well it may be the Devil
    And it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody

    Ohh Yeah
    Serve Somebody
