Oh, the benches were stained with tears and perspiration
The birdies were flyin' from tree to tree
There was little to say, there was no conversation
As I stepped to the stage to pick up my degreeAnd the locusts sang off in the distance
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody
Oh, the locusts sang off in the distance
Yeah, the locusts sang and they were singin' for meI glanced into the chamber where the judges were talkin'
Darkness was everywhere, it smelled like a tomb
I was ready to leave, I was already walkin'
But the next time I looked there was light in the roomAnd the locusts sang, yeah, it give me a chill
Oh, the locusts sang such a sweet melody
Oh, the locusts sang their high whinin' trill
Yeah, the locusts sang and they were singin' for meOutside of the gates the trucks were unloadin'
The weather was hot, a-nearly 90 degrees
The man standin' next to me, his head was explodin'
Well, I was prayin' the pieces wouldn't fall on meYeah, and the locusts sang off in the distance
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody
Oh, the locusts sang off in the distance
And the locusts sang and they were singin' for meI put down my robe, picked up my diploma
Took hold of my sweetheart and away we did drive
Straight for the hills, the black hills of Dakota
Sure was glad to get out of there aliveAnd the locusts sang, well, it give me a chill
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody
And the locusts sang with a high whinin' trill
Yeah, the locusts sang and they was singin' for me
Singin' for me, well, singin' for me
Это интересно:Об альбоме New Morning:

Вышедший всего через четыре месяца после спорного Self Portrait, более краткий и непосредственный New Morning получил намного больше тёплый откликов от поклонников и критиков. Приятным для слушателей стал тот факт, что на альбоме Дилан снова поёт своим «носовым» голосом, который он не использовал, начиная с альбома 1967 года John Wesley Harding.
Альбом достиг 7-й позиции в США, быстро став золотым, а также стал 6-м альбомом Дилана, занявшим первую строчку чартов в Британии. Самая известная песня с альбома «If Not For You», кавер версию которой сделал Джордж Харрисон; песня стала популярна в исполнении Оливии Ньютон Джон в 1971 году. Брайан Ферри включил свою версию этой песни в альбом Dylanesque.
