Words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Loose the bonds that tie me
Let the world I live in let me
Take these chains from off my thumb
Let the world just know you've come

Everyone is thinking that there must be a way
Come closer to me a babe, and hear what I say
Lay down beside me, listen to my song
It's something other than it's right or it's wrong

Do you ever seem so happy and feel so sad?
Feel that someone that you never had
