G                    F9
In the event of my demise
Be sure to include this statement
When you are bent on closing my eyes
Thinking about what my life meant
Alone on a hill back in '65
Things looked a lot like changing
Singing our songs that we harmonized
Dreaming of worlds rearranging

                         C       D G
And I don't know why I'm singing tonight
Em                           D
Maybe it's time someone told you
G                    C      D        G
Just because you say you've seen the light
Em                  D    G
Doesn't mean nobody sold you

G                          F9
I can remember all of your smiles
During the demonstrations
Taking on what seemed like the whole world
Igniting the hearts of our nations
      C                  D       Em
And together we sang our victory songs
                        Am  D
Though we were worlds apart
G                                F9
Every thing then has now passed away
Except for the love in my heart

Sitting at home on computerized beds
Trying to come to conclusions
Seeing reflections from rose-colored heads
Ignoring the states of illusion
                      C   D  G
Drunk in a world of material wealth
Em                       D
No one can notice you falling
G                      C    D        G
Fantastic flights once good for your health
Em                        D  G
Now make you deaf to your calling

C                 D       Em
And all alone the prophet groans
                    Am   D
With words as yet unseen
G                                 F9
Who'll be awake when the master returns
Who will be lost in their dreams

So in the event of my demise
Be sure to include this statement
Only the words of love kept alive
Are worthy of not being wasted
