American Hippie - Rich in Spirit

C F C G7
In Just 30 yrs. Woodstock has become / all the original was NOT - & then some
C F
From being with nature / on a farm & in tents
C G7
to a concrete runway / & controlled by a fence
C F C G7
From everything being / shared for free / to water costing 4 bucks / maybe 3
F C
This Amer.Hippie / is singin' what he's seen
G7 C C7
greed taking over / the corruption of a dream
F C
I ain't sayin' love is dead / at least I hope it's not for you
G7 F C
Each generation must be fed to create that dream anew
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F C
This Amer. Hippie likes / being in the woods
& given free choice / I'd rather do good
It's not growin' old / that I really mind
It's that ungiving people/ still remain blind
Am C
In the name of Family Values / hatred sweeps the land
Am C G7
Don't go naked in that spring / you'll get a reprimand
F C
When your body is so beautiful, ashamed you needn't be
G7 F C
Let's reclaim real Family Values / & get ourselves free
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F C
This hippie still stands / behind his beliefs
Tho change is slow to come, the world still needs relief
n yes I'm still gettin' high / I still like that grass
yet it isn't an addiction, it's medicinal relief that lasts
F C
n yes my hair's still long / I got no reason to crop it
I'm still thinking for myself, no corp. gov't can stop it
I still believe in striving / for the equality of all
& that sooner or later / Babylon .... will fall
Am
Love all unconditionally / including yo'self
Let's take our selfish pride / down off the shelf
Peace, love & brotherhood / is still on my mind
& the question in my head I ask is / are you kind?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F C
'n YES, I LOVE THIS LAND ... IT'S THE HOME OF MY BIRTH
G7 F C
& I'M HAPPY TO WAVE THE FLAG ... WITH A PICTURE OF PLANET EARTH!
Am C
What you do with your freedom is no concern to me
Be truthful & hurt no one / in word or deed
This Amer. Hippie / believes in the Spirit / Love is shared freely / whenever we're near it
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F C
I still campaign for recycling / & ask for cleaner water
I want cleaner air / & I oppose the cattle slaughter
& when all is said & done East & West of the Missippi
I'm proud to have been & still am / an Amer. Hippie
