My Revolutionary Mind
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Yim Yames

Night is here again, baby,
Stretched out on my bed
Seeing all kinds of crazy notions
Running around through my head

One hand is on my pillow,
One hand on my head,
I see a million nightmares
Tearing around in my head;

I need a progressive woman;
I need an awfully liberal woman.
I need a social conscious woman
To ease my revolutionary mind.

If I could only make you see, babe,
I ache and pain and bleed, babe,
I know you’d come a runnin;
If you blistered both your feet.

If you could see me here, baby,
Broke out with salty sweat;
No matter where you go I know
You never could forget.

I need a progressive woman;
I need an awfully liberal woman.
I need a social conscious woman
To ease my revolutionary mind.

I need a progressive woman;
I need an awfully liberal woman.
Ain’t no reactionary baby
Can ease my revolutionary mind.
