My Purpose to making Friends
Wish to locate people whom have gone thru the same kind of trials and tribulations that I ha                         Readjustment Blues

Just out of the Infantry this morning.
Had to pay my dues across the sea.
Noone back in bootcamp ever warned me.
What the Readjustment Blues would do to me.

Welcome to Havanna, said the pilot.
We must have made a wrong turn on the way.
Let's smoke some cigars and keep it quiet.
If they don't know we're here, we'll get away.

Just as I had realized he was joking.
I saw we were in Washington DC.
Cause there were all those patriotic buildings.
Just like I had seen them on TV.

Must have been a holiday, cause there was this parade.
People carried signs I could not read that they had made.
Till I got closer and my heart fell to my socks.
There was a battle raging and the air was filled with tear gas and rock.

There was the flag I fought against so often.
The one I fought for hanging upside down.
The wind was blowing hard the dirt was flying.
It made the city sky look dark and brown.

I saw a girl, she could have been my sister.
Except her hair was long and in her face.
She explained this was a revolution.
Against the WAR and for the human race.

Now I've seen alot of strange things in my travels.
Cans of bowl gas and aliens galore.
But I'd never thought I'd see so many people,
saying we don't want your WAR.

The troops all had on uniforms, just like the one I'd worn.
But they were all domestic, and my duty told of war.
They carried guns just like the ones across the sea;
except this time I was the citizen, and they were pointing their guns at me.

Yes I was just a citizen and was walking down the street,
and it was just then that the Readjustment Blues . . .
got thru to me.

John Denver

Thus giving me energy to ask questions which need to have answers.

    If you should have a time
    of loneliness and despair,
    Close your eyes and open your heart,
    and you will find me there.
