There's a concert tonight | Slice 14:31

There will be a familiar guitar swimming above a familiar beat
And then, a familiar voice will intermingle
Hello, cowgirl in the sand, is this place at your command?
Old enough now to change your name, when so many love you, is it the same?
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game...

Another familiar voice, this time with a psychedelic organ in the background
If you smile at me, I will understand
That is something everybody everywhere does in the same language
Wooden ships on the water, very free (and easy)
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be

And another...sweeter, more contemplative voice 
accompanied by the grand piano's simple chords
I'll light the fire, you place the candle in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire for hours and hours as I listen to you play your love songs
All night long for me....only for me

And then, the magical triumvirate will unite
Dododododo, do, do, dodododo
Dododododo, do, do, dodo
Dododododo, do, do, dodododo
Dododododo, do, do, dodo
(Are you humming 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' yet?)

It'll speed up
And there's a rose in the fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
If you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with
Love the one you're with

It'll slow down
All along the lee shore, shells lie scattered in the sand
Winking up like shining eyes at me from the sea
Here is one like sunrise, it's older than you know
It's still lying there where some careless wave
Forgot it long ago

It'll challenge
From the bottom of the ocean to the mountains of the moon
Won't you please come to Chicago
No one else can take your place
We can change the world
Rearrange the world

It'll remember
Guinnevere had golden hair
like yours, mi'lady, like yours
Streaming out when we'd ride 
through the warm wind down by the bay
Seagulls circle endlessly
I sing in silent harmony
We shall be free

It'll galvanize
Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the calling
Four dead in O-hi-o

It'll encourage
Teach your children well
Their father's hell did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick is the one you'll know by

It'll connect
Though we rush ahead to save our time
We are only what we feel and I love you
Can you feel it now?

Just a song before I go, to whom it may concern...

There's a concert tonight

Write on,


  1. Oh...have fun. We thought about going to that concert when we heard they were going to be in Columbus...but it would have been a two and a half hour we opted have fun and tell us about it. Jackie

  2. I have loved "Teach Your Children" since I was a young child myself. It's sort of my mantra.

  3. Ahhhhh. I'm slightly jealous. I love CSN. Have a fantastic time.


Hi! I'd love to hear what you are thinking right now, so please take a sec and drop me a line. I'm so glad you stopped by today -- thanks a billion. :)
