Bob Dylan, awarded Nobel Prize in Literature 2016

Well, I return to the Queen of Spades

And talk with my chambermaid

She knows I am not afraid

To look at her

I Want You, 1966

The curfew had been lifted and the gamblin' wheel shut down

Anyone with any sense had already left town

He was standin' in the doorway lookin' like the Jack of Hearts

Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts, 1975

Well, I'm lookin' down at two cards

They seem to be handmade

One looks like it's the ace of diamonds

The other looks like it is the ace of spades

Standing on the Highway, 1962
