Cat Stevens — On The Road To Find Out [Folk rock] (5:04) – 1970
I was going to post a quote from some new agey mystic,
But it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to say.
What I want to say takes five minutes and four seconds.
Takes some guitar, takes three hundred and eight words
Takes a journey, a pilgrimage, to get to the punchline.

Where it’s been all along,
And it takes some of us
Five years on the road
To discover it.

It’s a beautiful day.
