"Ballad of Easy Rider" as written by and Roger Mc Guinn....
The river flows
It flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes
That's where I want to be

Flow river flow
Let your waters wash down
Take me from this road
To some other town

All he wanted
Was to be free
And that's the way
It turned out to be

Flow river flow
Let your waters wash down
Take me from this road
To some other town

Flow river flow
Past the shaded tree
Go river, go
Go to the sea
Flow to the sea

The river flows
It flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes
That's where I want to be

Flow river flow
Let your waters wash down
Take me from this road
To some other town

    My InterpretationAbout the price of freedom. Freedom sometimes comes with terrible lonliness.
