    JAMES & THE GANG
    (Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    Can you find another star to dream on
    The summer's coming to an end
    Say goodbye to all your wandering friends
    And lovers, casual confidants
    Who shared your dreams
    When you were sixteen

    And you walked on the sands of glory
    With James and the gang
    You were one magnificent story
    You and James and the gang

    Pass the pipe and like the sun get higher
    In pack of roving wolverines
    Placing bets on every girl in teens and jeans
    Who eyed you suspiciously
    With your biblical hair
    And your mystical stare

    As you walked on the sands of glory
    With James and the gang
    You were one magnificent story
    You and James and the gang

    When all your illusions did lie in the palm of your hand
    And your limits were only the sky and the rolling sand
    And of every summer to come
    This summer would be the one
    You'd remember forever
    In your dreams

    Oh, twinkle, twinkle little star
    Did you ever wonder who you are
    And do you think that life is just a Belushi movie
    And the heartbreak years that lie ahead
    Be true to yourself and the Grateful Dead
    And remember the summer when all was hip and groovy

    And you walked on the sands of glory
    With James and the gang
    You were one magnificent story
    You and James and the gang

    Hush little baby, momma once was sixteen
    On the back of a Harley Davidson
    Boyfriend was a born again
    He shouted from the word of Jesus while doing 105
    Down the coast highway
    Only half a day from where

    You walked on the sands of glory
    With James and the gang
    You were one magnificent story
    You and James and the gang
