Parole e musica di Donovan P. Leitch‎
Album “Sixty Four”‎




“E voi tutti che marciate per le strade contro le bombe ed altro, quanti di voi si rendono conto ‎di essere usati come delle marionette?”

Ho l’impressione che quell’anarco-individualista di Donovan non fosse molto simpatico al ‎movimento pacifista, o forse voleva solo marcare la sua differenza e la sua autonomia al pari di ‎quanto fecero altri artisti, basti pensare al Bob Dylan di Maggie’s Farm e di “My Back Pages”, anch’esse ‎composte proprio in queegli anni…‎
I'm gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a-my own, if needs be
Gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a-my own

So many people trying bringing me down
They just don't seem to think
I've got some magic stronger than you
You can be happy with drink, poor boys
You can be happy with drink

I'm gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a-my own, if needs be
Gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a-my own

All you people who march in the streets
Against the bomb and other things
How many do you know you're just getting used
Just like puppets on strings

I'm gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a–my own, if needs be
Gonna ride my freedom road
I'm gonna ride it on a-my own
