lyrics

What I’d do to be, alive in ‘63
Oh what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see, the times of ‘63
Surely almost anything.

I’d sing a song with Dylan on that Newport stage,
Raise my hands in protest saying give peace a chance.
I’d take one last drive, in my Studebaker ride.
Oh what a year that be.

There’s a man I heard speaks a five letter word,
About peace, justice, and equality.
‘Cause when the times are rough, the people get tough
Oh what a fight to be free.

What I’d do to be alive in ‘63
Oh what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see the times of ’63
Surely almost anything.

So they hire a commission only to raise up suspicions
And still there’s no answers to be found.
But for some there’s religion, stay put like a sitting pigeon
It ain’t my cup of tea, but you can drink it down.

Be true to my own weirdnesses and to yours too,
What I wouldn’t do just to talk to you.
But you had to die, like so many before your time,
And I wanna say that I miss you.

What I’d do to be alive in ’63.
Oh what a year, what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see the times of ’63.
Surely almost anything.

They’ll propagate, persecute, prophesize and prostitute
And that’s just the men behind the curtain
I’m no martyr for the cause just waging in on the wars
It’s one crazy world that’s for certain.
It’s one crazy world that’s for certain.
