Ik ben niet geboren om iemand achterna te lopen

Van de Roel Janssenlijst – geschreven door Carole King en Jerry Goffin. Soundtrack Easy Rider.

Oh I’d rather go and journey where the diamond crest is flowing
And run across the valley beneath the sacred mountain
And wander through the forest, where the trees have leaves of prisms
And break the light in colours that no one knows the names of

And when it’s time I’ll go and wait beside a legendary fountain
Till I see your form reflected in its clear and jeweled waters
And if you think I’m ready, you may lead me to the chasm
Where the rivers of our vision flow into one another

I will want to dive beneath the white cascading waters
She may beg, she may plead, she may argue with her logic
And mention all the things I’ll lose
That really have no value, in the end she will surely know
I wasn’t born to follow

I wasn’t born to follow, The Byrds, 1968
