What I wouldn't give

Back in 45 new York city came alive 
A great war had ended 
and somehow we survived 
We survived 

And what I wouldn't give 
To be up there on the rooftops 
Drinking beer and and getting high 
With my friends and watch the city paint the sky

I would dress up like a sailor 
And I would walk those city streets 
Maybe find a pretty nurse girl 
And sweep her off her feet 

Well I'm not outta love songs baby
I have just begun 
I haven't found the words yet but you can sing along 
When I'm done 

Back in 57 I heard the sound of a guitar
Yea it shook the world in such a way 
It made us who we are 
Who we are

And what I wouldn't give 
To have found an old guitar
I woulda learned to play the blues 
And then I could sing my heart out to 

Well I'm not outta love songs babey
I have just begun 
I havnt found the words yet but you can sing along 
When I'm done 

And in 1969 I heard 
That 3 days there was a change 
People fell in love and forgot 
how to hate

And what I wouldn't give 
to have slipped some LSD 
And lose myself inside a sea 
Of Hendrix melody 

Still the missiles were pointed at us 
And our brothers were dying in brush 
We never wanted war we wanted freedom 
No one will take that from us 

Well I'm not outta love songs babey
I have just begun 
I havnt found the words yet but you can sing along 
When I'm done 

And when the bombs drop 
It'll happen soon some day 
I'll pack up this old six string 
And I will run away,far away

I am not a soldier
 I can barley lift a gun
But I will sing these songs of freedom 
These songs will never be undone 

And the world is Getting smaller 
so they say 
But you keep drifting 
further away

I'd never kill for anyone 
But I might just die for you 
if you asked me to 

Well I'm not outta love songs babey
I have just begun 
I havnt found the words yet but you can sing along 
When I'm done
