Bed Peace – Amsterdam
March 25-31 1969
“There we were like two angels in bed, with flowers all around us
and peace and love in our heads.”
– John Lennon
“Bed-ins are something that everyone can do and they’re so simple.
We’re willing to be the world’s clowns to make people realize it”.
– John Lennon (to Richie York 1969)
The highlight of our 1969 Bed in for Peace?
When John and I were looking at the moon one night from our bed.
– Yoko, Twitter 11/14/17
Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said / Say what’re you doing in bed
I said we’re only trying to get us some peace
– The Ballad of John & Yoko
