Jethro Tull - Living In The Past 1969

The single reached number three in the UK charts in 1969

Jethro Tull are a Grammy Award winning British rock band that formed in 1967-1968.[1] Their music is marked by the distinctive vocal style and lead flute work of front man Ian Anderson.

Initially playing blues rock with an experimental flavour, they have, over the years, incorporated elements of classical, folk and 'ethnic' musics, jazz and art rock.

Happy and I'm smiling,
Walk a mile to drink your water.
You know I'd love to love you,
And above you there's no other.
We'll go walking out
While others shout of war's disaster.
Oh, we won't give in,
Let's go living in the past.


Once I used to join in
Every boy and girl was my friend.
Now there's revolution, but they don't know
What they're fighting.
Let us close our eyes;
Outside their lives go on much faster.
Oh, we won't give in,
We'll keep living in the past.


Oh, we won't give in,
Let's go living in the past.
Oh no no we won't give in,
Let's go living in the past.
