Here's a fantastic little song I found (in the tune of Just Like A Woman) celebrating our man's passion for welding iron gates:

May have been posted in these parts already, but I looked and couldn't find it, so I'm sharing for those who haven't heard it. It's quite clever and well-done.

Not sure of authorship.

Here's the full lyrics:

Bob Dylan forges Iron Gates
Stare inside the frames you’ll see his fate
In the place of bars,
Are scrap metal parts
And even one with a nice small bronze guitar
He’s seeing clearly now
Bob sings just like a singer, yes he does
He plays tunes just like a singer, yes he does
And he paints just like a singer
But he welds just like a Railing Man.

Iron ore’s always been his friend
This aint about starting another trend
But nobody would have guessed
That Dylan did possess
A forge, anvil, punches, visors, all the rest
With his tongs, his acetylene and his mask
Bob sings just like a singer, yes he does
He plays tunes just like a singer, yes he does
And he paints just like a singer
But he welds just like a Railing Man.

He loved railings from the start
But needed time to hone his art
So he practiced for years
Spent some time in music charts
And now he can start
Showing off his Gates
‘Cos it’s been a long wait
But ain’t it great that

Bob can now weld
Yes, I believe that he is compelled
So if you see him round your way
With a spot welder and spray
Please don’t let on that you knew him when
He was just a harmonica and a voice
Bob sings just like a singer, yes he does
He plays tunes just like a singer, yes he does
And he paints just like a singer
But he welds just like a Railing Man
