"Easy Rider (Let the Wind Pay the Way)" as written by Robert Edmondson, Ron Bushy, Lee Dorman and Douglas Ingle....
Pegs of people line the street
A ball and chain around their feet
Waitin' for a weekend treat
But Easy Rider's got 'em all beat 'cause

[Chorus]
Easy rider, he's a glider
(Easy) Freedom, every day
(Rider) Easy rider, easy glider
Lettin' the wind pay the way
(that's all he ever does)

Freedom!
Freedom!

Puts a rocket in his pocket
At the dawn of day
Needs a goodbye kiss in the mornin', mist
You know the man can't stay.

[Chorus]

solo

(Who'm I talkin' 'bout)
Easy, easy, easy rider
Easy, easy, easy rider

Goin' easy, where you goin'
Gettin' tired of being all alone
Oh, the roads are calling you
Back to where you belong
Oh, ride on!

Talkin' bout easy

    General CommentWhat idiot put the line "Needs a goodbye kiss in the morning, mist"? Good grief! Think before you post, man.
    "Ball and chain around their feet" may be right, but I've always heard it as, "Marchin' around the beat".
    Having just spoken about people having to work until the weekend, the lyrics then contrast Easy Rider with:
    "He's off every day" -- not "Freedom every day", as misquoted above.
    And... "Pegs of people"? What? Try this:

    See the people line the street
    Marching around the beat
    Waiting for their weekend treat
    But Easy Rider's got 'em all beat, cuz
    He's a rider, he's a glider
    He's off every day
    Easy rider, he's a glider
    Ride, tell the wind to pay the way
