Prologue Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

words and music by Arlo Guthrie 


In the event of my demise 

Be sure to include this statement 

When you are bent on closing my eyes 

Thinking about what my life meant 


Alone on a hill back in '65 

Things looked a lot like changing 

Singing our songs that we harmonized 

Dreaming of worlds rearranging 


And I don't know why I'm singing tonight 

Maybe it's time someone told you 

Just because you say you've seen the light 

Doesn't mean nobody sold you 


I can remember all of your smiles 

During the demonstrations 

Taking on what seemed like the whole world 

Igniting the hearts of our nations 


And together we sang our victory songs 

Though we were worlds apart 

Every thing then has now passed away 

Except for the love in my heart 


Sitting at home on computerized beds 

Tryine to come to conclusions 

Seeing reflections from rose-colored heads 

Ignoring the states of illusion 


Drunk in a world of material wealth 

No one can notice you falling 

Fantastic flights once good tor your health 

Now make you deaf to your calling 


And all alone the prophet groans 

With words as yet unseen 

Who'll be awake when the master returns 

Who will be lost in their dreams 


So in the event of my demise 

8e sure to include this statement 

Only the words of love kept alive 

Are worthy of not being wasted
