Mmmm the times are changin' - Nothing ever stays the same

Ooooh the times are changin' - The bear and the eagle are to blame

You canít tame a bear and you canít chain an eagle down

You canít make a river flow upstream

And the dead donít make no sound, no sound, no sound

 

By tomorrow Ė Iíll be on the road again my friend

I can hear the wild birds callin' my name

I can hear the wild birds callin' me home

Doo do doot, do doot doot do doot - Doo do doot do doot doot do doot

Doo do doot do - Do doot doot do

 

Johnís down by the river and he never steps foot in the city

At least not by the light of day

Johnís down by the river

He never steps foot in the city

All he wants to do is get high and play - It feels safer that way

 

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine light my day

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine light my way

 

You gotta stand up, stand out - Raise your voice and shout

Be a man, make a plan and take a stand - Let it all hang out

Kiva, kiva circle star Ė Youíre in a circle wherever you are

Kiva, kiva circle star Ė Youíre in the largest circle by far

 

You can feel the beat beneath the city street - poundin' in my head

Makin' me wish I'd never done the things I did

Aaah by tomorrow, yeah tomorrow Ė Iíll be on the road again, my friend

I can hear the wild birds calling my name

I can hear the wild birds callin' me home

Doo do doot, do doot doot do doot - Doo do doot do doot doot do doot

Doo do doot do - Do doot doot do

 

Johnís down by the river Ė He never steps foot in the city

At least not by the light of day

Johnís down by the river and he never steps foot in the city

All he wants to do is get high and play - It feels safer that way Ė Hey, hey, hey

 

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine fill my heart

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine help me do my part

Kiva, kiva circle star Ė Youíre in a circle wherever you are

Kiva, kiva circle star Ė Youíre in the largest circle by far

 

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine
