THE SOFT PARADE (1969)

TELL ALL THE PEOPLE

Tell all the people that you see 
Follow me 
Follow me down 
Tell all the people that you see 
Set them free 
Follow me down 

You tell them they don't have to run 
We're gonna pick up everyone 
Come out and take me by my hand 
Gonna bury all our troubles in the sand, oh yeah 

Can't you see the wonder at your feet 
Your life's complete 
Follow me down 
Can't you see me growing, get your guns 
The time has come 
To follow me down 

Follow me across the sea 
Where milky babies seem to be 
Molded, flowing revelry 
With the one that set them free 

Tell all the people that you see 
It's just me 
Follow me down 

Tell all the people that you see 
Follow me 
Follow me down 
Tell all the people that you see 
We'll be free 
Follow me down 

Tell all the people that you see 
It's just me 
Follow me down 
Tell all the people that you see 
Follow me 
Follow me down 

Follow me down You got to follow me down 
Follow me down 
Tell all the people that you see 
We'll be free 
Follow me down 
Tell all the people you see 
Follow me 
You got to follow me down

TOUCH ME

Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Now touch me, baby 
Can't you see that I am not afraid? 
What was that promise that you made? 
Why won't you tell me what she said? 
What was that promise that you made? 

Now, I'm gonna love you 
Till the heavens stop the rain 
I'm gonna love you 
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I 

Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Now touch me, baby 
Can't you see that I am not afraid? 
What was that promise that you made? 
Why won't you tell me what she said? 
What was that promise that you made? 

I'm gonna love you 
Till the heavens stop the rain 
I'm gonna love you 
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I 
I'm gonna love you 
Till the heavens stop the rain 
I'm gonna love you 
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I 

Stronger than dirt

SHAMAN´S BLUES

There will never be 
Another one like you 
There will never be 
Another one who can 
Do the things you do, oh 

Will you give another chance? 
Will you try, little try? 
Please stop and you remember 
We were together, anyway, all right 

And if you have a certain evenin' 
You could lend to me 
I'd give it all right back to you 
A how it has to be with you 
I know your moves and your mind 
And your mind 
And your mind 
And your mind 
And your mind 
And your mind 
And your mind 

Will you stop and think and wonder? 
Just what you'll see 
Out on the train yard 
Nursin' penitentiary 
It's gone, I cry out long 

Go head, brother 

Did you stop it to consider? 
How it will feel 
Cold, grinded grizzly bear jaws 
Hot on your heels 

Do you often stop and whisper? 
It's Saturday's shore 
The whole world's a savior 
Who could ever, ever, ever 
Ever, ever, ever 
Ask for more? 

Do you remember? 
Will you stop? 
Will you stop? 
The pain 

And there will never be 
Another one like you 
There will never be 
Another one who can 
Do the things you do, oh 

Will you give another chance? 
Will you try, little try? 
Please stop and you remember 
We were together, anyway, all right 

How you must of think and wondered 
How I must feel 
Out on the meadows 
While you run the field 
I'm alone for you 
And I cry 

The sweat, look at it 
Optical promise 
Heh, heh, heh 
You'll be dead and in hell 
Before I'm born 
Sure thing 
Brides maid 
The only solution 
Isn't it amazing?

EASY RIDE

And I know 
It will be 
An easy ride, all right 
And I know 
It will be 
Easy ride, ok 

The mask that you wore 
My fingers would explore 
Costume of control 
Excitement soon unfolds 

And I know 
It will be 
Easy ride, yeah 
Joy, for vaguely 
Which' your pride 
Which' your pride, yeah 

Black polished stone 
Black polished stone 
I see your eyes 
Like burnin' glass

Hear you smile, smile, babe 

The mask that you wore 
My fingers would explore 
Costume of control 
Excitement soon unfolds, hey 

Easy, baby 

Call the queen, now 
Be my bride 
Ragin' darkness 
By my side 
Seize the summer 
In your pride 
Take the winter 
In your stride 

Let's ride, yeah 
Easy, easy, easy 
Easy, easy, ease, easy 
Yeah, yeah, ride 
Dum, dum, dum, dum 
Dum, dum, dum 
Ride

WILD CHILD

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face

Natural child, terrible child
Not your mother's or your father's child
Your our child, screamin' wild

An ancient lunatic reins
In the trees of the night
Ha, ha, ha, ha

With hunger at her heels
Freedom in her eyes
She dances on her knees
Pirate prince at her side
Stirrin' into a hollow idols eyes

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face
Your cool face
Your cool face

Do you remember when we were in Africa?

RUNNIN´BLUES

Poor Otis dead and gone 
Left me here to sing his song 
Pretty little girl with the red dress on 
Poor Otis dead and gone 

Yeah, back down, turn around slowly 
Try it again, remembering when 
It was easy, try it again 
Much to easy, rememberin' when 

All right, look at my shoes 
Not quite the walkin' blues 
Don't fight, too much to lose 
Can't fight the runnin' blues Well, I've got the runnin' blues 
Runnin' away, back to L.A. 
Got to find the dock of the bay 
Maybe find it back in L.A. 

Runnin' scared 
Runnin' blue 
Goin' so fast 
What'll I do 

Well, I've got the runnin' blues 
Runnin' away, back to L.A. 
Got to find the dock of the bay 
Maybe find it back in L.A. 

All right, look at my shoes 
Not quite the walkin' blues 
Don't fight, too much to lose 
Can't fight the runnin' blues 

All right, look at my shoes 
Not quite the walkin' blues 
Don't fight, too much to lose 
Can't fight the runnin' blues

 

WISHFUL SINFUL

Wishful crystal 
Water covers everything in blue 
Coolin' water 

Wishful sinful 
Our love is beautiful to see 
I know where I would like to be 
Right back where I came 

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue 
Water covers you 
Wishful, sinful, wicked you 
Can't escape the blue 

Magic risin' 
Sun is shinin' deep beneath the sea 
But not enough for you and me and sunshine 
Love to hear the wind cry 

Wishful sinful 
Our love is beautiful to see 
I know where I would like to be 
Right back where I came 

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue 
Water covers you 
Wishful, sinful, wicked you 
Can't escape the blue 

Love to hear the wind cry 
Love to hear you cry, yeah, yeah

THE SOFT PARADE

When I was back there in seminary school
There was a person there
Who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
You cannot petition the lord with prayer!

Can you give me sanctuary
I must find a place to hide
A place for me to hide

Can you find me soft asylum
I can't make it anymore
The Man is at the door

Peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy
Champion sax and a girl named Sandy
There's only four ways to get unraveled
One is to sleep and the other is travel, da da
One is a bandit up in the hills
One is to love your neighbor 'till
His wife gets home

Catacombs
Nursery bones
Winter women
Growing stones
Carrying babies
To the river

Streets and shoes
Avenues
Leather riders
Selling news
The monk bought lunch

Ha ha, he bought a little
Yes, he did
Woo!
This is the best part of the trip
This is the trip, the best part
I really like
What'd he say?
Yeah!
Yeah, right!
Pretty good, huh
Huh!
Yeah, I'm proud to be a part of this number

Successful hills are here to stay
Everything must be this way
Gentle streets where people play
Welcome to the Soft Parade

All our lives we sweat and save
Building for a shallow grave
Must be something else we say
Somehow to defend this place
Everything must be this way
Everything must be this way, yeah

The Soft Parade has now begun
Listen to the engines hum
People out to have some fun
A cobra on my left
Leopard on my right, yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress
Girls with beads around their necks
Kiss the hunter of the green vest
Who has wrestled before
With lions in the night

Out of sight!
The lights are getting brighter
The radio is moaning
Calling to the dogs
There are still a few animals
Left out in the yard
But it's getting harder
To describe sailors
To the underfed

Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
What got us this far
To this mild equator?

We need someone or something new
Something else to get us through, yeah, c'mon

Callin' on the dogs
Callin' on the dogs
Oh, it's gettin' harder
Callin' on the dogs
Callin' in the dogs
Callin' all the dogs
Callin' on the gods

You gotta meet me
Too late, baby
Slay a few animals
At the crossroads
Too late
All in the yard
But it's gettin' harder
By the crossroads
You gotta meet me
Oh, we're goin', we're goin great
At the edge of town
Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
Havin' a good time
Got to come along
What got us this far
To this mild equator?
Outskirts of the city
You and I
We need someone new
Somethin' new
Somethin' else to get us through
Better bring your gun
Better bring your gun
Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
We're gonna ride and have some fun

When all else fails
We can whip the horse's eyes
And make them sleep
And cry
