Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Vier getalenteerde muziekanten: David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash en Neil Young. De eerste drie hebben veel samengewerkt. Young was eerder een "halftime member", met uitzondering van de periode van "Déja Vù". (en de latere projecten hieraan verbonden)

Zeer kenmerkend voor hun sound was de zogenaamde "closeharmony" zang. Het 3 stemmig zingen was blijkbaar een deel van ieders natuurlijk talent, want ook tijdens optredens (Live Performances) klonk dit bijzonder mooi. 
 

Song-Lyrics - Helplessly hoping

Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby - awaiting a word
Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit - he runs
wishing he could fly-aye
Only to trip at the sound of goodbye ... aye


Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders
at the empty place inside
Hopelessly helping himself to her bad dreams - he worries
did he hear a goodbye .. aye  –  or even, hello …o …o …o

Chorus:
They are one person, they are two alone, they are three together, they are four … for each-other


Stand by the stairway you’ll see something certain to tell you
confusion has it’s cost
Love isn’t lying it’s loose in a lady wholingers
saying she is lo – ost; and choking on helo ... o … o … o

 Teach your children well (Acoustic Live by Crosby, Stills & Nash)

Song-Lyrics - Teach Your Children 

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 good bye.

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 will 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 will cry
so just look at them and sigh, and know they love you.
