Long Time Gone     Crosby, Stills & Nash   1969

 

Turn, turn any corner.
Hear, hear, you must hear what the people say.
You know that something is going on around here.
It surely, surely, surely won't stand the light of day...no, no.

Speak out, you got to speak out against the madness!

And it appears to be a long time

Before the dawn

 

But you know, the darkest hour
Is always.....just before the dawn

 

These poignant, penetrating lyrics always stir me. Yet the song also expresses an assurance of hope. This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Disturbingly, the lyrics seem always to be contemporary, applicable to any current events.

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.
