What good am I - Bob Dylan

Some days I saw the lyrics of the song "What Good Am I" by Bob Dylan in Usha's blog.

Wow...I am so impressed by the lyrics of the song...Powerful lyrics. I wanted to hear the song and was asking around for the audio file of the song. Finally I got it from an internet acquaintance. Amazing song....

Read the lyrics below,

What good am I if I'm like all the rest,
If I just turned away, when I see how you're dressed,
If I shut myself off so I can't hear you cry,
What good am I?

What good am I if I know and don't do,
If I see and don't say, if I look right through you,
If I turn a deaf ear to the thunderin' sky,
What good am I?

What good am I while you softly weep
And I hear in my head what you say in your sleep,
And I freeze in the moment like the rest who don't try,
What good am I?

What good am I then to others and me
If I've had every chance and yet still fail to see
Bridge: If my hands tied must I not wonder within
Who tied them and why and where must I have been

What good am I if I say foolish things
And I laugh in the face of what sorrow brings
And I just turn my back while you silently die,
What good am I?

It is really a powerful song with beautiful and meaningful lyrics. I am bowled by this song.

Do let me know your thoughts.
