F
It's the year 2009
      G
And we are living in dangerous times
Am      
We should learn from the hippies, and why the movement failed:
             F                                         G                             F
Hippies don't run for government and politicians don't inhale. 

F                            G
A long time ago in a time called the 60's,
Am                                         F           G                F
People thought pop music was going to change the world.
F
They said things like 'All you need is love',
G
Took the pregnancy pill, and whatever else they could get hold of,
Am
Bob Dylan went electric, Sgt Peppers was a hit
       F                                      G                                             F
And people realised they could change the world if they gave a shit!


Am                                     G
But people got jaded when Vietnam was invaded,
      F         G          Am                  
And Jimi, Janis and Morrison assasinated 
           F
By the C.I.A.
        G
That was the day
                F
The music died

F
Take me back to 1969
G       
When changing the world meant a corny line
       Am
Like 'Love Is You Need'

Or smoking an ounce of weed
    F            G     F
Or taking LSD at Woodstock
F
Now it's the year 2009
G
And again we're living in dangerous times
                Am

Hippies don't run for government and politicians don't inhale.


           F
Now its forty years later.
G         
Things have been greater.
      Am
The sexual revolution left a fishy taste
      F                                 G               F
Of teenage pregnancies in council estates.
                      F
And we've still got war.
                G
We've still got famine.
 Am                                    
As opposed to getting out your head to The Grateful Dead


F                                         G                   F
People do it now listening to Radiohead instead.


Am
But everyone’s still jaded.
               G
Now Iraq's been invaded.
      F                     G   
The Gaza strip's in Israel's grip,
        Am
Even Syria has been raided.
            F
Still we tow the line,
         G
Maybe now's the time
                  F        G          F
To bring the music back to life.

F
Take me back to 1969
G       
When changing the world meant a corny line
       Am
Like 'Love Is You Need'

Or smoking an ounce of weed
    F            G     F
Or taking LSD at Woodstock

Hippies don't run for government and politicians don't inhale.


             Am
Now everyone’s still jaded.
            G
And the hippies have all traded
                  F             G                                 Am
Free love in for a stable job and like their bell bottoms they've faded
               F
How did it go this far.
               G
Remember who you are,
                    F       G      F
And give the music C.P.R.

F
Take me back to 1969
G
