ANOTHER COUNTRY / EASY RIDER

Electric Flag  (1968)

If I could lose all my troubles

By running away

No, no I wouldn't stay

No I wouldn't


But they just keep on hangin' 'round me

And won't go away

No, no won't go away


It just ain't fair  No, no, no  It just ain't fair


This whole year has been a blunder

Yes I've lost my sense of wonder

And there are no sweet warm love birds to turn to

I have no one to call brother


On every street In the city

Well you'll get afraid

Yes so afraid


You can't see past the surface

of plans that I made to drive you insane

Everywhere, everyday

You won't even want to find yourself a place to hide


And you'll be hurt so many times

You'll lose your love of nursery rhymes

Get the safest room you can find

And lock the door

Find yourself another country


[Instrumental interlude]


If I could lose all my troubles

By running away

No, no I wouldn't stay

No I wouldn't


But they just keep on Hangin' 'round me

And won't go away

No, no won't go away

No they won't go away!


Well I know there must be someplace people

Someplace I can rest my weary head

'Cause you know I've been all over this country people

And it's the same, the same old thing

Everywhere I go

Don't you think I might find someplace to rest my weary head
