Canned Heat & Jefferson Airplane at Monterey Pop Festival (Rollin' and tumblin' / High Flyin' Bird)



The Monterey International Pop Music Festival was a three-day concert event held June 16 to June 18, 1967, at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California. The festival is remembered for the first major American appearances by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Who and Ravi Shankar, the first large-scale public performance of Janis Joplin and the introduction of Otis Redding to a mass American audience.


With two huge singles behind them, Jefferson Airplane was one of the major attractions of the festival, having built up a large following on the West Coast.






Canned Heat - Rollin' and tumblin'



Well, I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long

Well, I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long

Well, I woke up this mornin', didn't know right from wrong


Well, I told my baby, before I left that town

Well, I told my baby, before I left that town

Well, don't you let nobody, tear my barrel house down


Well, if the river was whiskey, and I was a divin' duck

Well, if the river was whiskey, and I was a divin' duck

Well, I would dive to the bottom, never would I come up


Well, I could a had a religion, this bad old thing instead

Well, I could a had a religion, this bad old thing instead

Well, all whiskey and women, would not let me pray

Jefferson Airplane - High Flyin' Bird



There's a high flyin' bird, flying way up in the sky

And I wonder if she looks down, as she goes on by?

Well, she's flying so freely in the sky


Lord, look at me here

I'm rooted like a tree here

Got those sit down

Can't cry oh Lord, gonna die blues


Now the sun it comes up and lights up the day

And when he gets tired, Lord, he goes on down his way

To the east and to the west He meets God every day


Lord, look at me here

I'm rooted like a tree here

Got those sit down, can't cry

Oh Lord, gonna die blues


Now I had a woman

Lord, she lived down by the mine

She ain't never seen the sun

Oh Lord, never stopped crying


Then one day my woman up and died

Lord, she up and died now

Oh Lord, she up and died now, she wanted to die

And the only way to fly is die, die, die


There's a high flyin' bird, flying way up in the sky

And I wonder if she looks down as she goes on by?

Well, she's flying so freely in the sky


Lord, look at me here

I'm rooted like a tree here

Got those sit down, can't cry

Oh, Lord, gonna die blues
