In 1974 I made a record with Norbert Putnam called “Changing Woman”, which took its title from this song. I’d been spending time with Apache and Navajo friends, and their beautiful religious poetry inspired me in many ways.

Eagle Man
climbing the skies
Red light of evening
falls like rain
Rainbow’s my yarn
The sky is my loom
I will weave sunsets
later on

Snow Woman
Climbing the wind
Blue light of winter
fills her baskets
Oh woh-h Changing Woman
Dance on the weather
Lightning and feathers
mark her trail

Life Lovers
splinting the worlds
Healing the broken
and the lame
Reach out to me
Give me your hands
We close the circuits of time

Angel Ranger
Stay here by me
Guide my transmission
of energy
Oldest religion
simple and clear
Pour out a lesson
into my dream

Eagle Man
climbing the skies
Red light of evening
falls like rain
Rainbows my yarn
The sky is my loom
I will weave sunsets
later on.

Robots of gloom they come and go
Don’t let em get you down
Laughter is the grease of growth
support your local clown
Don’t ever be afraid to smile
at what you really love
Laughter is the grease of growth. Yeah.

Little boys love the Gypsy woman
who lives down on the beach
They love her flashy Gypsy skirt
and nothing on beneath
They love her ferris wheel legs
her roller coaster eyes
Little boys love the Gypsy woman. Yeah.

Little girls love the nature boy
who lives among the shells
they love to see him body surf
upon their little selves
They love his silky seaweed hair
They love his sunset eyes
Little girls love the nature boy

And Baby is a mongrel pup
Hybrid mutant girl
cross-bred nomad stronghead
and Happy in the big bad world
We are the Space Age Council of
Intertribal Straight Ahead
And maybe youre a mongrel pup. Yeah.
