She has no fear of failure

She's not bent with broken dreams

For the future's just beginning

When you're always seventeen



It was nineteen sixty-one

When we went to Washington

She put her arms around me

And said, "Camelot's begun"



We listened to his visions

Of how our land should be

We gave him our hearts and minds

To send across the sea



Nineteen sixty-three

White and black upon the land

She brought me to the monuments

And made us all join hands



And scarcely six months later

She held me through the night

When we heard what had happened

In that brutal Dallas light

Oh, she is always seventeen



She has a dream that she will lend us

And a love that we can borrow

There is so much joy inside her

She will even share her sorrow



She's our past, our present

And our promise of tomorrow

Oh, truly she's the only hope I've seen

And she is always seventeen



It was nineteen sixty-five

And we were marching once more

From the burning cities

Against a crazy war



Memphis, L.A. and Chicago

We bled through sixty-eight

Till she took me up to Woodstock

Saying with love, it's not too late



We started out the seventies

Living off the land

She was sowing seeds in Denver

Trying to make me understand



That mankind is woman

And woman is man

And until we free each other

We cannot free the land

Oh, she is always seventeen



She has a dream that she will lend us

And a love that we can borrow

There is so much joy inside her

She will even share her sorrow



She's our past, our present

And our promise of tomorrow

Oh, truly she's the only hope I've seen

And she is always seventeen



Nineteen seventy-two

I'm at the end of my rope

But she was picketing

The White House chanting, ?A.C.A.?
