Not at a loss for words: "Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued," an original Showtime documentary, will follow Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops) Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) as they create music for two-dozen recently discovered lyrics written by Bob Dylan.

These verses were penned by Dylan in the summer of 1967 and originally intended for "The Basement Tapes."
