^Joe Cocker Live at Woodstock
does Joe Cocker use drugs? Possibility.

Joe Cocker was one of the performers at Woodstock ’69. One of his songs that clearly demonstrates the values and thoughts that was behind the ideas of the festival is called “Love not War” The lyrics ask what the country is fighting for, and voiced the opinion of the counter culture revolution, and most of America’s population. It says to “make love not war”, and even compares love in the world to oxygen, saying “if love is oxygen were cutting off the air supply”.

LOVE NOT WAR
(T.SNOW / B.GRIFFIN)
JUST 24 HOURS AGO THE SOUND MY HEART MADE AS IT BROKE
ECHOED ACROSS THE ROOM AND CUT RIGHT THROUGH THE WORDS YOU SPOKE.
I DON'T WANNA FIGHT TILL 3 A.M. WAKE UP RED EYED AND START AGAIN
MY TEARS WON'T SOLVE A THING
DO YOU EVER KNOW WHAT YOUR FIGHTING FOR ?
BABY CAUSE I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE
LETS MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
WE CAN GET IT BACK LIKE IT USED TO BE
LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS BABY COME TO ME
LET'S MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
IF LOVE IS OXYGEN WE'RE CUTTING OFF THE AIR SUPPLY
YOU STING AND I CAN'T BREATHE
I NEED TO KNOW, THE REASON WHY
IF I'VE BEEN HARD TO HANDLE I'M THE FIRST TO APOLOGISE
CUZ BABY THIS GOES BOTH WAYS
DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FIGHTING FOR
BABY CAUSE I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE
LETS MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
WE CAN GET IT BACK LIKE IT USED TO BE
LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS BABY COME TO ME
LET'S MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
