It was all about living
And the good folks of the earth
It was all about loving
This crazy accident of birth
It was all about traveling
And hearing those shoe-bells ring
It was all about dancing
And hearing the fat man sing

And it's like a bad trip in hell
Stranded and broke
Twenty years in this cell
It's like a life up in smoke

Once I sought vision
With a sweet gypsy tribe
It was about feeling
The pulse of a vibe
And sure I smoked kind bud
Did windowpane
And soaked up the beauty
Of the warm summer rain


I slept in the shadows
Of Golden Gate Park
Watched the moon shine
Felt the breeze in the dark
The whole world was mine
But I lived for a song
Now I'm caged in this cell
And the good days are gone


Additional verses not included on Live at Club Passim:
And I never hurt no one
Never did harm
Wouldn't want to cause
Any undue alarm
I used to believe
In karma and fate
And it scares me to wonder
If there's no time to hate
