Things they said

C#                                A#m                   F#
Bob dylan said that the times they are a changiní
All I see is energy in space just rearranginí
John Lennon said let it be
Doesnít look like anyone was listening to John Lennon to me
Bob Dylan said that a hard rain is gonna fall
Doesnít seem like thatís changed very much at all
John Lennon said a working class hero was something to be
Weíre still all peasants as far as I can see
Slaves to religion and sex and t.v.

The kings and barons they open the gates real wide
Saying look at all of the things that weíve got inside
But donít look to close at that which we try to hide 
Donít look behind the curtains at all of the lies weíve lied 
Or beneath our diamond thrones the bones of those who died
And donít rock the boat or try to turn the tide
If you can believe our false ideals and appeals to your foolish pride
Maybe you can join us if you just come along for the ride

Woody Guthrie had a note on his guitar
Said this machine kills fascists
But the fascists are still here and woody Guthrieís dead
So I keep him alive in my head
The things he said
Always alive in my head

And Jesus said that you will find the truth you seek
And that someday the earth will be inherited by the meek
And in the face of evil to turn the other cheek
But maybe Iím just too weak
So I speak

And the Buddha said you got to let go of everything including yourself
Its not about high degree or the books upon your shelf
And to let go of desire for safety or greatness or wealth
What is really important is your own spiritual health
Well maybe I need a little help

And I like to think that if Bob Dylan was dying alone in some grey place in Jersey
Or if he died in his footsteps on a New York City street
I would go and visit him on my own two rambling feet
And I would sing this song for him without missing a word or beat
And he would smile beneath his sheet
Because he will never be dead

If I keep we him alive in my head
The things he said
Always alive in my head
What Iíve heard and read
Always alive in my head
Always alive in my head
