Stills & Nash Crosby Suite: Judy Blue Eyes

It’s getting to the point where I am no fun anymore, I am sorry.

Sometimes it hurts so badly I must cry out loud, ‘I am lonely.’

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are, you make it hard.

Remember what we’ve said, and done and felt about each other, oh babe, have mercy.

Don’t let the past, remind us of what we are not now, I am not dreaming.

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are, you make it hard.

Tearing yourself away from me now, you are free and I am crying.

This does not mean I don’t love you, I do, that’s forever, yes, and for always.

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are, you make it hard.

Something inside is telling me that I’ve got your secret. Are you still listening?

Fear is the lock and laughter the key to your heart and I love you.

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are

And you make it hard, and you make it hard, and you make it hard, and you make it hard.

Friday evening, Sunday in the afternoon, what have you got to lose?

Tuesday morning, please be gone, I’m tired of you what have you got to lose?

Can I tell it like it is, listen to me baby-

It’s my heart that’s a suffering, it a-dying and that’s what I have to lose.

I’ve got an answer. I’m going to fly away, what have I got to lose?

Will you come see me Thursdays and Saturdays? What have you got to lose?

Chestnut brown canary, ruby throated sparrow,

Sing a song, don’t be long, thrill me to the marrow.

Voices of the angels, ring around the moonlight,

Asking me, said, she so free, how can you catch the sparrow?

Lacy, lilting lyrics, losing love lamenting. Change by life, make it right, be my lady.

Stills & Nash Crosby 4-Way Street Medley

He’s a perfect stranger

Like a cross of himself and a fox

He’s a feeling arranger

And a changer of the ways he talks

He’s the unforseen danger

The keeper of the key to the locks

Know when you see him

Nothing can free him

Step aside, open wide

It’s the loner

If you see him in the subway

He’ll be down at the end of the car

Watching you move

Until he knows he knows who you are

When you get off at your station alone

He’ll know that you are

Know when you see him

Nothing can free him

Step aside, open wide…

I wanna live with a cinnamon girl

I could be happy

The rest of my life

With a cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures

I run in the night

You see us together

Chasing the moonlight

My cinnamon girl

Ten silver saxes,

A bass with a bow

The drummer relaxes

And waits between shows

For his cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures

I run in the night

You see us together

Chasing the moonlight

My cinnamon girl…

Be on my side,

I’ll be on your side, baby

There is no reason for you to hide

It’s so hard for me

Staying here all alone

When you could be taking me

For a ride.

Yeah, she could drag me

Over the rainbow,

Send me away

Down by the river

I shot my baby

Down by the river

Dead.

You take my hand,

I’ll take your hand

Together we may get away

This much madness is

Too much sorrow

It’s impossible to make it today.

Yeah, she could drag me

Over the rainbow,

Send me away

Down by the river

I shot my baby

Down by the river

Dead.

Be on my side,

I’ll be on your side, baby

There is no reason for you to hide

It’s so hard for me

Staying here all alone

When you could be taking me

For a ride.

Stills & Nash Crosby Helpless

There is a town in north Ontario,

With dream comfort memory to spare,

And in my mind I still need a place to go,

All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,

Yellow moon on the rise,

Big birds flying across the sky,

Throwing shadows on our eyes.

Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless

Baby can you hear me now?

The chains are locked and tied across the door,

Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,

Yellow moon on the rise,

Big birds flying across the sky,

Throwing shadows on our eyes.

Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.

Stills & Nash Crosby Teach Your Children

You, who are on the road must have a code that you can live by.

And so become yourself because the past is just a good bye.

Teach your children well, their father’s hell did slowly go by,

And feed them on your dreams, the one they pick’s the one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,

So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of tender years can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,

And so please help them with your youth, they seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well, their children’s hell will slowly go by,

And feed them on your dreams, the one they pick’s the one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,

So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Stills & Nash Crosby Almost Cut My Hair

I almost cut my hair

It happened just the other day

It was gettin’ kinda long

I could-a said, it was in my way

But I didn’t and I wonder why

I feel like letting my freak flag fly

And I feel like I owe it to someone

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas

And I’m not feelin’ up to par

It increases my paranoia

Like lookin’ at my mirror and seein’ a police car

But I’m not givin’ in an inch to fear

Cause I promised myself this year

I feel like I owe it to someone

When I finally get myself together

I’m gonna get down in that sunny southern weather

And I find a place inside to laugh

Separate the wheat from the chaff

I feel like I owe it to someone

Stills & Nash Crosby Soldiers Of Peace

Soldiers of peace are not fighting a war

Are not looking for enemies behind every door

Are not looking for people to kill or to maim.

Soldiers of peace are just changing the game.

Men who were fighting for all of our lives

Are now fighting for children, for homes and for wives,

Fighting for the memory of all who fell before,

But the soldiers of peace just can’t kill any more.

So come all you warriors who live for the fight,

Come listen to somebody, somebody who might

Have been there before you and they have the right,

They’ve been dying to tell you the score.

The old warriors don’t want you to hurt any more.

Soldiers of peace can still hear the cries

When the people were screaming and losing their lives,

When bodies were broken and spirits were torn

The soldiers of peace do not want you to mourn.

So come all you warriors who live for the fight,

Come listen to somebody, somebody who might

Have been there before you and they have the right,

They’ve been dying to tell you the score.

The old warriors don’t want you to hurt any more.

Soldiers of peace are not fighting a war.

No more, no more, no more, no more.

Stills & Nash Crosby American Dream

I used to see you on every T.V.

Your smiling face looked back at me.

I used to see you on every T.V.

Your smiling face looked back at me.

Then they caught you with the girl next door,

People’s money piled on the floor,

Accusations that you try to deny,

Revelations and rumors begin to fly.

Now you think about reaching out

Maybe get some help from above.

Now you think about reaching out

Maybe get some help from above.

Reporters crowd around your house.

Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds,

Speculating what they may find out,

It don’t matter now, you’re all washed up.

You wake up in the middle of the night.

Your sheets are wet and your face is white,

You tried to make a good thing last,

How could something so good, go bad, so fast?

American dream, American dream

American dream, American dream.

Don’t know when things went wrong,

Might have been when you were young and strong.

Don’t know when things went wrong,

Might have been when you were young and strong.

Reporters crowd around your house.

Going through your garbage like a pack of hounds,

Speculating what they may find out,

It don’t matter now, you’re all washed up.

Don’t know when things went wrong,

Might have been when you were young and strong.

American dream, American dream.

Don’t know when things went wrong,

Might have been when you were young and strong.

American dream, American dream.

Stills & Nash Crosby Heartland

People come and go

Living other lives

Running everywhere at such a speed

Never taking time

To open up their eyes

Never knowing where life leads

In the heartland people everywhere

Try to share their hopes and dreams

In the heartland on any given day

You can find your way back home

Take another breath

And take another chance

Take another look at who you are

And get ready for your live

‘Cos it’s such a crazy dance

So open up and you’ll go far

We’ve been running so far away

From where our lives belong

Will we ever get back to the rhythm of the heartbeat

Do you ever feel sad

For those whose hearts have turned to stone

You are not alone

It’s time to take it slow

Time to take a rest

Time to leave the fast lane far behind

Live is hard enough, I know

But you can only do your best

To get it in your heart and minds

Stills & Nash Crosby 49 Bye Byes / America’s Children

Forty nine reasons all in a line

All of them good ones, all of them lies

Drifting with my lady, we’re oldest of friends

Need a little work and there’s fences to mend

Steady girl, she was my world

Till the drifter come, now she’s gone

I let that man play his hand

I let them go, how was I to know

I’m down on my knees, nobody left to please

Now it’s over, they left in the spring

Her and the drifter, lookin’ for beautiful things

Something happening here

What it is ain’t exactly clear

There’s a man with a gun over there

Telling me I got to be ware

We got to stop children, watch that sound

Look what’s going down

What a field day, what a heat

And there’s a thousand people on the street

Singing songs and care inside

Stills & Nash Crosby Don’t Say Goodbye

Never leave me alone (don’t say goodbye)

I don’t wanna face my world without you.

Never leave me alone (don’t say goodbye)

I don’t wanna lose your lasting love.

Never tell me goodbye,

I don’t wanna live my life without you.

Never tell me goodbye,

I don’t wanna see you walk away from me.

If I open up my heart

I can always find you there

So I’ll never be apart from you

My heart is on my sleeve

And even though you started to

I hope you never leave,

Never leave, me alone.

If I open up my heart

I can always find you there

So I’ll never be apart from you

In you I still believe

And even though you started to

I hope you never leave,

Never leave, me alone.

Never leave me alone (don’t say goodbye)

I don’t wanna live my life without you.

Never leave me alone (don’t say goodbye)

I don’t wanna lose your lasting love.
