Abraham, Martin, and John ======= Dion DiMucci

 

My teenage years began in 1967.  I was too young to understand the causes and effects of what happened back then.  Soon it was April.  Then June.  Then this song came along and I knew it reported facts, but it tried to reach me in a hopeful way.

 

“... Didn't you love the things they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free,
Someday soon it's gonna be one day.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Bobby,
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin and John.”

 

Bass, guitar, harp ..... proceed to coda to the ethereal end........

Masters of War ==== Bob Dylan

 

”... you have thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled,

afraid to bring children into the world,

for threatening my baby unborn and unnamed,

you ain’t worth the blood that runs through your veins ...”

Sorry about the disjointed previous post.  Too much Xmas and not enough experience with this posting stuff.

 

Anyway, the song is Apeman.  It was written by Ray Davies and performed by the Kinks.  Here’s the lyric:

 

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cause I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an Apeman
