WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE

Iconic singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and illustrator David Walker team up to present this charming, cozy, and touching interpretation of “If Not for You.”

If not for you…
I’d be sad and blue.
If not for you…
I just wouldn’t have a clue.

If not for you…
What would I do?

In this inventive interpretation of Bob Dylan’s 1970 song “If Not for You,” illustrator David Walker beautifully imagines Dylan’s lyrics as portraying the bottomless love between a parent and a child—and the magical experiences they might share together.
