The Song in My Head

Today I awoke with an old favorite song rolling through my head. It's The Ballad of Easy Rider by The Byrds. I used to play this song with my pals Joe Parisi and Bill Beadell in our old-timey trio "The Flat World Band." This river, above, is one I visited in Guatemala a few weeks ago, flowing out of an underground cave and down the mountainside.

For some reason that song seems right for today. We're heading out on the road again for another speaking gig soon. And with spring upon us the rivers are flowing and reminding us of this season's penchant for renewal, for washing clean, and for the emergence of new life.

March came in like a lion. I hope it goes out like a lamb.

Anyway, here are the lyrics to The Song in My Head, The Ballad of Easy Rider.

The river flows, it flows to the sea.
Wherever that river goes, that's where I want to be.
Flow, river flow, let your waters wash down,
Take me from this road, to some other town.

All he wanted, was to be free,
And that's the way, it turned out to be,
Flow, river flow, let your waters wash down,
Take me from this road, to some other town.

Flow, river flow, past the shaded tree,
Go river, go, go to the sea,
Flow, to the sea.

Wherever that river goes, that's where I want to be.
Flow, river flow, let your waters wash down,
Take me from this road, to some other town.
