G C G The bird of freedom has a golden wing, G C D And brotherhood is a commercial thing. Em A All you really need is a guitar, Em A That's all you really need to be a star. C Bm - C - G The wind of change is on the way. Bm C D G The sound of protest has begun to pay. Bm G Tell them about the dream you had last night, C A How every politician saw the light. Em C Just keep those dollar bills way out of sight, F D Because a well-fed rebel don't look right!
Some rebels are commercial, some are not.
Some rebels make a million, some get shot.
If a halo isn't worth the risk,
Why not settle for a golden disk?
The wind of change is on the way.
The sound of protest has begun to pay.
(Words and music by Fred Hellerman and S. Carter, 1965)
