or
Stephen Stills

New York City years ago
Tourists in the rain
Singin' on the swing shift
For pennies

Thinkin' 'bout the bayou
Cajun river song
It almost got my head broke
In Texas

Purple Peacock, Honky Tonk
Eunice, Louisiana
Bourbon whiskey free, son
Just tune up the piano

Workin' clubs in New Orleans
Bringin' down a dollar
College boys drink beer
And throw the bottles

It's been a long, long, long way
I got some more to go
Don't look at my shadow
It's behind me

It's been a long, long, long way
In twenty years or so
Thinkin' 'bout those times
Might amuse me

It's been a long, long, long way
I got some more to go
Don't look at my shadow
It's behind me

It's been a long, long, long way
In twenty years or so
Thinkin' 'bout those times
Might amuse me

L.A., Forum Sports Arena
Twenty thousand fans
Gals, you come to listen, I'm gonna
Give you everything I can

I've always had to play my music
Play it best I could
Hope you're on the stands
And get me good

You know that California dreamin'
Nearly put me down for good
Colorado, Rocky Mountains
Saved my senses

It's been a long, long, long way
I got some more to go
Don't look at my shadow
It's behind me

It's been a long, long, long way
In twenty years or so
Thinkin' 'bout those times
Might amuse me
