Bob Dylan - Gonna Serve Somebody (Saturday Night Live)

                                  Slow Train Coming is the nineteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on August 20, 1979 by Columbia Records. It was the artist's first effort since becoming a born-again Christian, and all of the songs either express his strong personal faith, or stress the importance of Christian teachings and philosophy. The evangelical nature of the record alienated many of Dylan's existing fans; at the same time, many Christians were drawn into his fan base. Slow Train Coming was listed at #16 in the 2001 book CCM Presents: The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music.(Wikipedia)

                                           "Gotta Serve Somebody"(Slow Tain Comin)

This song is about finding meaning in life through serving God. At the time of writing, Bob Dylan was a born-again Christian, hence the song's religious message: "You're gonna have to serve somebody/Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord/But you're gonna have to serve somebody."(Songfacts)
