FLOWER POWER DIED
Written by John Hartford
As sung by John Hartford on "Aereo-Plain/Morning Bugle: The Complete Warner Bros. Recordings" (2012)*

1. Used to work on the river and I wore a headband
All summer long way up to the fall,
And now I'm a hippie and I don't wear one at all.
Hadn't you heard? Flower power died and disappeared into the long, long ago.

2. Well, I used to be an Indian; I wore a lot o' beads
And I danced around a fire to the Indian call,
And now I'm a hippie and I don't wear beads at all.
Hadn't you heard? Flower power died and disappeared into the long, long ago.

3. Used to live in the country and I had a lot o' flowers:
Big ones, little ones, short and tall.
Now I'm a hippie and I got no flowers at all.
Hadn't you heard? Flower power died and disappeared into the long, long ago.

4. Well, I used to be a cowboy, rolled my own,
Smoked a lot o' grass in the horse's stall,
And now I'm a hippie and I don't smoke nothin' at all.
Hadn't you heard? Flower power died and disappeared into the long, long ago.

5. Well, I had a little money and I always went to church,
But I tripped on my promises and made a little fall,
And now I'm a hippie and I got no money at all.
Hadn't you heard? Flower power died and disappeared into the long, long ago.

[* This is apparently a re-release on one CD of two albums that were originally on LPs: "Aereo-Plain" (1971) and "Morning Bugle" (1972); however, "Flower Power Died" didn't appear on either of those albums.]
