Wooden Ships      Crosby, Stills & Nash   1969

 

Was heralded by many of the 60's counter-culture as a call to abandon American culture, a culture which was oppressing vocal youthful protesters, to build a new life, an enclave together, free of war,  insensitivity and intolerance.

 

"Go, take your sister, then by the hand,
Lead her away from this foreign land,
Far away, where we might laugh again,
We are leaving - you don't need us.

Chicago     Graham Nash

 

We can change the world -
Re-arrange the world.


It's dying - if you believe in justice
It's dying - if you believe in freedom
It's dying - let a man live his own life
It's dying - rules and regulations, who needs them

Sadly, the  lyrics  to  this  1970  song  still  ring  true  today.
