Hey pit, I am going with some friends as a hippie. I'm gonna strap on my twelve string and play while walking around. What are some easy strumming or chord songs that are classic hippie staples?

So far I have: Imagine and Me and Bobby McGee

Thanks!

Yes. Jimi Hendrix = hippie counter-culture

Basically look up all the bands that played at Woodstock in '69....

Wrong era. As is Imagine.

I read the thread and the first song that came to mind was White Rabbit. Definitely go with that.

Any Dylan would work.

Seconded on White Rabbit, that is totally a hippie/ drug song. Although you do need the drum and bassline for it to be effective, and it helps if you're Grace Slick

I really don't care what era the songs are from, just that it has a hippie feel.
Nobody is gonna be like "that song is from the 70s not the 60s". Imagine was 1971 anyway. But sorry no free bird.
