"Phil Ochs" as written by and Josh Joplin....
I've seen the death of rock and roll.
And I am living proof
That no one here can dig a hole
And not find the truth
Phil you are not gone (3x)
And though the posterchild tries
He won't survive the scorn
He is killed with compromise
In the tube where he was born
Phil you are not gone (3x)
50 fans can't be wrong (3x)
Or can they, can they....can they, can they?
Our surveys say, this is what they want today.
Our surveys say all they want is sugar ray
Phil you can't be killed (3x)
50 fans can't be wrong (3x)
Or can they, can they....can they, can they?
We are what we've always been
Ready, here we go
Wait for the signal to begin
And youâ??re on the radio
Phil you are not gone.(3x)
50 fans canâ??t be wrong. (3x)
Or can they? (spoken)
I've seen the death of rock and roll.

He is killed with compromise
In the tube where he was born
Phil you are not gone (3x)
50 fans can't be wrong (3x)

And you're on the radio
Phil you are not gone.(3x)
50 fans can't be wrong. (3x)
Or can they? (spoken)
