Lyrics

BACK THERE AGAIN
copyright Carlene Thissen 2009


Kaleidoscope colors along gentle paths
Dreams of helping the poor
Peace love and music - blonde hair and hash
Protests against the war

Hair in a headband, rawhide on her wrist
Waking to watch the lake and the mist
There was no doubt this was where she belonged
As she sang all night long

CHORUS:

In her fringe-leather jacket, a peace sign on a necklace
Bell-bottom jeans, covered with patches
A ticket to Woodstock - a guitar she named Alice
Precious reminders of candles and rain
She just wants to go back there again.

VERSE 3 and 4:

By seventy-one - the magic was over
Time to grow up and move on
She forgot all the dreams that drove her
Farewell, Angelina, you're gone.

She cut her hair - and got a career
And lost herself for 30-odd years
Sometimes she remembers and sings old folk songs
And sometimes she longs,

CHORUS 2:
For her fringe-leather jacket, a peace sign on a necklace
Bell-bottom jeans, covered with patches
A ticket to Woodstock - a guitar she named Alice
Fading reminders of candles and rain
She just wants to go back there again.

CHORUS 3: (Key change)
A fringe-leather jacket, a peace sign on a necklace
Bell-bottom jeans, covered with patches
Now sometimes she plays the guitar she named Alice
With blessed reminders of candles and rain
She's found her way back there again.
