Chicago / We Can Change the World

Écouter : Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Chicago
Anti-war protesters demonstrating in Chicago against the Vietnam War.

The original caption by Chicago Tribune photographer Michael Budrys says, "Troops arrive to Grant Park and within minutes virtually replace city police. Hippies remain in park singing spiritual songs by sound of strings. Michigan Ave. blocked to traffic by milling people and newsmen from around the globe."

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Nash, 1970

Though your brother’s bound and gagged

And they’ve chained him to a chair

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Just to sing

In a land that’s known as freedom

How can such a thing be fair

Won’t you please come to Chicago

For the help we can bring

We can change the world –

Re-arrange the world

It’s dying – to get better

Politicians sit yourself down,

There’s nothing for you here

Won’t you please come to Chicago

For a ride

Don’t ask Jack to help you

Cause he’ll turn the other ear

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Or else join the other side

We can change the world –

Re-arrange the world

It’s dying – if you believe in justice

It’s dying – and if you believe in freedom

It’s dying – let a man live it’s own life

It’s dying – rules and regulations, who needs them

Open up the door

Somehow people must be free

I hope the day comes soon

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Show your face

From the bottom to the ocean

To the mountains of the moon

Won’t you please come to Chicago

No one else can take your place

We can change the world –

Re-arrange the world

It’s dying – if you believe in justice

It’s dying – and if you believe in freedom

It’s dying – let a man live it’s own life

It’s dying – rules and regulations, who needs them

Open up the door

~~~~~

Who needs them?

Throw them out the door
