– First Annual World Celebration –
July 6, 1982

Conventions for melody notation are as follows:
Basically, the letters a to g have been used for the notes, one for each syllable of the words, separated by spaces. Sharps and flats (# and b) have been kept to a minimum by transposing the songs to simple keys, so notes are relative, not absolute. When they are for songs i have done chords for, they will be aligned with those chords. In addition:

1. Where more than one note is to be sung with a given syllable, its notes will be run together without spaces.
2. To eliminate ambiguity regarding octaves, a + or - is used to indicate jumps of six or more semitones. The absence of these indications will mean the nearest note up or down (five or fewer semitones) will be the one.
3. Previously a system had been described in an attempt to reckon with timing and length of notes. As this came to be seen as unwieldy and difficult, it has been dropped in favour of this simpler presentation. FWIW, timing flows fairly naturally in most songs, making precise indications mostly unnecessary.

Let the Wind Blow (in the event, not on the tape for that night, perhaps because Love Life Laughter and Alive ran extremely long) (And in another event, it did make it onto a tape, the next celebration in fact, in Sept of '82, track 13 on that day)

Let the wind blow and take it all easy
Let the wind blow, we're still alive

High Time to Dance  ~~ chords ~~  (by Anubhava) (NB words are slightly different, evolving into later chords version) (in the event, not on the tape for that night, perhaps because Love Life Laughter and Alive ran extremely long) (And in tandem with "Let the Wind Blow" above (parallel universe?) this song too made it onto a tape in the next celebration, track 6, as "The Universe Is Singing a Song")

Wherever I Go (by Anubhava, no chords yet)

Solo singer:
    (Wherever I go, wherever I turn my eye, 
     there is fragrance in the air
     and the colors of your love)


Solo singer:                                      Everybody:

and it feels like                                 and it feels like
  your blessing                                    your blessing
is the blessing of life                        is the blessing of life

Yes, Bhagwan, Yes  ~~ chords ~~ (by Maniko and/or Anubhava)

(In the event – just for something different,
ha ha! – this song was NOT on the printed programme but WAS on the tape, and at 10 minutes, yet another reason the two omitted songs were omitted. Another feature of this version of YBY is that it is done differently from the others and from what i had presented previously, with words simplified and melody altered substantially, to what might be called a harmony line. Thanks to Para for pointing this out.

So, herewith the two versions: first, the "standard" one, the one done in all other known recordings thusfar heard. In these versions, they are in E, mine here representing the melody transposed from those versions to D, to fit with my chords version. The second is the July '82 version, with words and melody "as is," in G as it happens. The last line seems transplanted whole from another song, Don't Let a Chance Like This Go By fwiw.)


1)
Yes, Bhagwan, yes ~~ a f# g a
We dance at Your feet ~~ a a g a b
Yes, Bhagwan, yes ~~ b g a b
This great mystery ~~ b b a b c#
Yes, Bhagwan, yes ~~ c# a b c#
We celebrate everything ~~ c# c# b c# d a a

2) Yes, Bhagwan, yes ~~ b b a g
Yes, Bhagwan, yes ~~c c b a
Yes, Bhagwan, yes yes yes ~~b d e b c a
Yeah yeah yeah yeah ~~ e d b a
