Tell Me Why
    #2376409 - 02/25/04 04:37 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Sailing heart-ships thru broken harbors
Out on the waves in the night......
Still the searcher must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright..............
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
arrangements with yourself.........
When you're old enough to repay
but young enough to sell?

Tell me lies later.......come and see me
I'll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me, All in the way that you smile
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
arrangements with yourself,
When you're old enough to repay
but young enough to sell?

Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me why

That album was the first time music ever became trancendental for me. I was a young teenager and I smoked some really good pot and layed down and listened to it. I floated out of my body.

I still think Cripple Creek Fairy is one of the sweetest songs ever. :thumbup:

I can't help but laugh when I hear Cripple Creek Fairy (no offense Chinacat... but come on, it is a funny song!). Personally I love "Don't let it bring you down"... my favorite Neil Young song ever. Listening to "Harvest" right now, actually ("old man take a look at your life...")

I like Cripple Creek Fairy because its just a innocent sweet little lullaby.
Neil Young is a fabulous lyricist and musician.

Yeah, Neil's the man! He has an excellent song book to tour with. There are quite a few songs, that he's never even recorded. They just exist in bootlegs and people's memories...

My little bro just saw him with Crazy Horse for the Greendale tour. I wanted to catch that one, but I missed it. I saw it in the paper, the same day it was happening... :frown:

He said it was really good though. The Horse was "on" that night, and that it was one of Neil's "big ideas," with an interesting stage-set and concept. :cool:

PS: 4 of the 6 (or 5 of 7, or 6 of 8, I'm too drunk to remember) "missing albums" finally came out on CD last year. I've picked up all four. Some I had on vinyl and hadn't heard in 20+ years, but I never had "On the Beach", and that is probably the best of the four. "Revolution Blues" (written about his old Laurel Canyon buddy, Charles Manson -- he bought him a motorcycle once) is about as good as it gets! :cool:

I got the revolution blues,
I see bloody fountains,
And ten million dune buggies
comin' down the mountains.
Well, I hear that Laurel Canyon
is full of famous stars,
But I hate them worse than lepers
and I'll kill them in their cars.

I'm a vampire, baby, suckin' blood from the earth.
Well, I'm a vampire, babe,
sell you
twenty barrels worth.

I'm a black bat, babe, bangin' on your window pane
I'm a black bat, baby, bangin' on your window pane.
Well, I'm a black bat, babe,
I need my high octane.

Good times are comin', I hear it everywhere I go
Good times are comin', I hear it everywhere I go.
Good times are comin', but they sure comin' slow
