Billy Bragg sings Bob Dylan – Happy Birthday Billy Bragg

“Yes to dance beneath a diamond sky with one hand waving free…” for this alone Bob Dylan deserves the Nobel Prize
—> Billy Bragg on Twitter

Stephen William “Billy” Bragg (born 20 December 1957) is an English singer-songwriter and left-wing activist. His music blends elements of folk music, punk rock and protest songs, with lyrics that mostly span political or romantic themes. His music is heavily centred on bringing about change and involving the younger generation in activist causes.

Lay Down Your Weary Tune

Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself ‘neath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum

This Wheel’s On Fire

KT Tunstall & Billy Bragg

If your memory serves you well, we’re going to meet again and wait
So I’m going to unpack all my things and sit before it gets too late

When The Ship Comes In

Oh, the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin’

Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
