    SGT. PEPPER'S BAND
    (Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    I never knew you meant that much to me
    Why did I pour a candle when you died
    Find a picture of you walking in Central Park
    With the iron woman by your side
    That candle burned for twenty days
    Most of my best friends came to mourn
    And talk about the good ole days
    Before my friends and I were born

    Now I think I understand
    That it was Sgt. Pepper's band
    That put the sixties into song
    Where have all the heroes gone?

    Lucy in the sky with the lads from Liverpool
    Drop some acid, meet the Queen
    Coming out of both eyes of the hurricane
    You sang your music sweet and clean
    You may not want my poetry
    I surely do not want your fame
    You rose over the dawn of my early history
    I'll pay you tribute all the same

    Now I think I understand
    That it was Sgt. Pepper's band
    That put the sixties into song
    Where have all the heroes gone?
    Where have they gone?
    Where have they gone?
    Where have all the heroes gone?
    Where have all the heroes gone?

    It was a diamond studded hard day's night
    They say everyone was there
    I must have heard you from my mother's arms
    And I must have thought somebody cared
    I live in the age of cosmic maniacs
    One of them put a bullet in your side
    New York City, 1980
    The day the sixties finally died

    Now I know I understand
    That it was Sgt. Pepper's band
    That put the sixties into song
    Where have all the heroes gone?
    Where have they gone?
    Where have they gone?
    Where have all the heroes gone?
    Where have all the heroes gone?
