  1. don't mind me, i'm just here for all the retarded and over-romanticized comments.

  2. about the most lyric and vocal pedal steel track ever recorded. Miss you Jerry, thanks for all the hours of exquisite licks.

  3. 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 goodbye.

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

    and feed them on your dreams, the one they picks, 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 picks, 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.

  4. not perfect kind of like me. i like all the men in tthis group. now i can just listen to music and ham potatoes same time

  5. Awhile ago on one of those music competitions I listen to on the radio they play parts of a song and listeners ring in to compete, the 1st few bars as the commentator said " my board lit up " nothing better then that.

  6. I remember when this song came out. People wondered if they were a country band. But I'll tell you, these men put out some of the most awesome music in Rock n Roll of the 70's… Thank God I was bleesed to watch them perform live with Neil Young..

  7. David Crosby–harmony vocals
    Stephen Stills–harmony vocals, guitars, bass
    Graham Nash–lead vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion
    Dallas Taylor–drums, tambourine, percussion
    Jerry Garcia–pedal steel guitar

  8. One of those songs I turn up every time I hear it. The lyrics are timeless and the steel guitar is mesmerizing.

  9. RIP dad. I was so hung up and angry growing up over my biological dad I didn't realize until it was too late and now I can't hug you or thank you for all you've done for me and Antonio we miss you

  10. I chose this song to play at my Dad's funeral. He left this world on August 21, 2018 and not a day goes by that I don't think of him. Love you always Dad. ❤❤

  11. The lyrics to this song is so true. My children, who are adults now, taught me so many life's lessons. Let's all start loving each other unconditionally!!! ❤

  12. Isn't life funny, how your kids teach you so much about life. I'm one of the luckiest Dads in the world. My 5 adult kids are my life. This song will be played at my funeral! This song makes me cry everytime!!!!!

  13. Boy do I wish these guys were still making music especially in today's climate. But the songs still holds true like most of their music.

  14. Communication beetween parents and childrens is the key to a better life for everyone. Thanks Crosby, Stills and Nash (edit : and Young !) for this beautiful and tender song which delivers a simple but nonetheless essential message !

  15. White Christmas brought me here. I always just assumed that the 'Crosby' in Crosby, Stills and Nash was Bing Crosby. In fairness, this other Crosby dude must be a good singer too, as they have some great harmonies.

  16. It took me 40 years to love and appreciate this song. I've tried to let my daughter know what this song means to me.
