Stills & Nash Crosby Everybody I Love You

Know you got to run,

Know you got to hide

Still there is a great life

Lingerin’ deep within your eyes.

Open up, open up, baby let me in.

You expect for me to love you

When you hate yourself, my friend.

Everybody, I love you

Everybody, I do

Though your heart is in anger

I need your love to get through

When I tell you I love you

You can believe that it’s true

Everybody, I love you

Everybody, I do.

Stills & Nash Crosby Chicago

Though your brother’s bound and gagged

And they’ve chained him to a chair

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Just to sing

In a land that’s known as freedom

How can such a thing be fair

Won’t you please come to Chicago

For the help that we can bring

We can change the world

Re-arrange the world

It’s dying … to get better

Politicians sit yourselves down

There’s nothing for you here

Won’t you please come to Chicago

For a ride

Don’t ask Jack to help you

‘Cause he’ll turn the other ear

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Or else join the other side

We can change the world

Re-arrange the world

It’s dying … if you believe in justice

It’s dying … and if you believe in freedom

It’s dying … let a man live his own life

It’s dying … rules and regulations, who needs them

Open up the door

Somehow people must be free

I hope the day comes soon

Won’t you please come to Chicago

Show your face

From the bottom of the ocean

To the mountains on the moon

Won’t you please come to Chicago

No one else can take your place

Stills & Nash Crosby Shadowland

Behind a nation’s blind salute

Behind “my country `tis of thee”

Behind the pain that won’t compute

Erase the memory of Shadowland.

An open wound that never heals

A bone that never seems to set

A mind that thinks but never feels

The face we’ve never met from Shadowland.

They tell us time and time again

They only want a few good men

They lead us through the lion’s den

To Shadowland.

The world would just as soon forget

And watch the wreckage drift ashore

Ten years reduced to one regret

The baggage of war from Shadowland.

Don’t ask us how our names were lost

Our nation did a sleight of hand

We never saw the line we crossed

That took us into Shadowland.

They tell us time and time again

They only want a few good men

They lead us through the lion’s den

To Shadowland.

The son will reap what fathers sow

But mothers have to hear the sound

Of the last breath of the boy next door

Whose life has ended

Shadowland, Shadowland, Shadowland.

Stills & Nash Crosby 4+20

Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life,

The son of a woman and a man who lived in strife.

He was tired of being poor and he wasn’t into selling door to door

And he worked like the devil to be more.

A different kind of poverty now upsets me so.

Night after sleepless night, I walk the floor and I want to know- why am I so alone?

Where is my woman can I bring her home? Have I driven her away? Is she gone?

Morning comes to sunrise and I’m driven to my bed.

I see that it is empty and there’s devils in my head.

I embrace the many colored beast. I grow weary of the torment, can there be no peace?

And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease.

Stills & Nash Crosby Ohio

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming

We’re finally on our own

This summer I hear the drumming

Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get down to it

Soldiers are cutting us down

Should have been done long ago

What if you knew her

And found her dead on the ground

How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it

Soldiers are cutting us down

Should have been done long ago

What if you knew her

And found her dead on the ground

How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming

We’re finally on our own

This summer I hear the drumming

Four dead in Ohio

Stills & Nash Crosby Laughing

I thought I met a man,

Who said he knew a man,

Who knew what was going on.

I was mistaken

Only another stranger that I knew

I thought I found a light

And all this darkness

I was mistaken

Only reflections – of a shadow that I saw

And I thought I’d seen someone

Who seemed at last

To know the truth

I was mistaken

It was only a child – laughing – in the sun

Ah! In the sun

Stills & Nash Crosby Carry On

One morning I woke up and I knew you were really gone

A new day, a new way, and new eyes to see the dawn

Go your way, I’ll go mine and carry on

The sky is clearing and the night has cried enough

The sun, he comes, the world to soften up

Rejoice, rejoice, we have no choice but to carry on

The fortunes of fables are able to sing the song

Now witness the quickness with which we get along

To sing the blues you’ve got to live the dues and carry on

Carry on, love is coming, love is coming to us all

Where are you going now my love? Where will you be tomorrow?

Will you bring me happiness? Will you bring me sorrow?

Oh, the questions of a thousand dreams, what you do and what you see

Lover, can you talk to me?

Girl, when I was on my own, chasing you down

What was it made you run, trying your best just to get around?

The questions of a thousand dreams, what you do and what you see

Lover, can you talk to me?

Stills & Nash Crosby Looking Forward

Morning has come with the first rays of sun

Breaking through our windowpane

Songs fill the air but there’s no singer there

Just an old wooden guitar playing

Writing this song won’t take very long

Trying not to use the world “old”

Thinking about taking chances and doubts

That still linger in the cold

Looking forward, all that I can see

Is good things happening to you and to me

I’m not waiting for times to change

I’m gonna live like a free-roaming soul

On the highway of our love

Looking forward, all that I can see

Is good things happening to you and to me

I’m not waiting for times to change

I’m gonna live like a free-roaming soul

Morning has come with the first rays of sun

Breaking through our windowpane

Songs fill the air but there’s no singer there

Just an old wooden guitar playing

Stills & Nash Crosby Slowpoke

Something opened up the gates again,

I can’t control it, so I rushed right in.

Here comes a mommy and a little girl,

Saw open drawers from around the world.

I got some medals hanging on my chest,

I’ve seen some good ones, but I missed the rest.

Lady luck don’t you turn on me,

I’m just a student of your history,

I’m just a student of your history.

Slowpoke I’m gonna run with you,

Wear all your clothes and do what you do.

Slowpoke we got some things to find,

When I was faster, I was always behind,

When I was faster, I was always behind.

Something pushed back the curtain again,

The stage is deeper and the crowd is in.

The song is gentle, but the song is now.

Something’s missing, but something is found,

Something’s missing, but something is found,

Something’s missing, but something is found.

Slowpoke I’m gonna run with you,

Wear all your clothes and do what you do.

Slowpoke we got some things to find,

When I was faster, I was always behind.

When I was faster,

When I was faster, I was always behind,

When I was faster…

Stills & Nash Crosby King Midas In Reverse

If you could only see me

And know exactly who I am

You wouldn’t want to be me

Oh I can assure you of that

I’m not the guy to run with

‘Cos I’ll throw you off the line

I’ll break you and destroy you

Given time

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse

It’s plain to see it’s hopeless

Going on that way we are

So even though I lose you

You’d be better of by far

He’s not the one to hold your trust

Everything around him turns to dust

In his hand

Nothing he can do is right

He’d even like to sleep at night

But he can’t

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse

I wish someone would find me

And help me gain control

Before I lose my reason and my soul

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse

He’s King Midas with a curse

He’s King Midas in reverse
