I dreamed I saw Phil Ochs last night
Alive as you and me
Says I to Phil "you're ten years dead"
"I never died" says he
"I never died" says he

The music business killed you Phil
They ignored the things you said
And cast you out when fashions changed
Says Phil, "But I ain't dead"
Says Phil, "But I ain't dead"

The FBI harassed you Phil
They smeared you with their lies
Says he, "But they could never kill what they could not compromise"
