Inspired by the life and times of Sharon Selby, Chris Santella's mother-in-law


“Just sit down at my table and I’ll tell you what I think
We could use more Joni Mitchells and a whole lot less of Pink
I believe there’s hope for love and peace, I swear it’s not too late”
Oh she’s back in the clutches of Ann Arbor ‘68

“I was born in south Chicago but we moved north to Detroit
I was married off at 18 didn’t know enough to fight
By 22 had two girls and a vision of my fate”
She’s heading toward the campus of Ann Arbor 68.

“There were concerts, there were protests and some classes here and there
Sangria flowed on weekend nights free love was in the air
With my kids tucked down beneath my desk through the Vietnam debate”
She was bunkered down in Angel Hall -- Ann Arbor 68

BRIDGE (ritard/quiet)
I made decisions my kids don’t get
To make a life with no regrets
A few wrong turns but what the hell
Ann Arbor served me pretty well

“The MC5’s disbanded and the SDS is dead
No one signs up for comp lit it’s all business ed instead
Now Michigan’s behind me I live far out of state”
She’ll always have her memories -- Ann Arbor 68.
She’ll always have her memories -- Ann Arbor 68.
