words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Remember back when I was born
High up in the sky
Looking down upon the scene
I can't recall just why
A white love light come up to me
I followed it back down
Sayin' this is the tune of the Earth my friends
When I want to be around

I want to be around
When the stars fall on the ground
Walking hand in hand with every man
Sleeping in the sun with everyone

Abraham come in one more time
It must have been in L.A.
He just said, "Joe won't you stay?"
"All right, O.K.," he said to me
"I got nothing else to do."
So Abe walked in, he's back again
Until his life is through

He's going to be around
While a whole new world goes down
Walking hand in hand with every man
Sleeping in the sun with everyone

Every night by morning light
I look up on the hill
Digging all the cosmic sights
And I recognize it's Will
I said, "Oh Well, it's getting time
I'm beginning to feel my load."

He said, "Don't worry brother
"Cause you and the others
Will see it out on the road."

And I want to be around
When all over this world
You can't hear a sound 'cept everyone
Singing songs of glory in the sun
