Crosby, Stills, and Nash: Daylight Again

So David Crosby died today. I only acquired a couple three of this group’s albums over the years, and from them, this is my favorite song.

Update 23 Jan 23: This post here and on Fb may strike some as inappropriate, because though David Crosby sang these songs, he did not write them, and I didn’t realize that. Numerous sites in recent days that have compiled the best David Crosby songs, which of course don’t include these. This Wikipedia page for the album reveals that this song was written by Stephen Stills.

Daylight again
Following me to bed
I think about a hundred years ago
How my Fathers bled

I think I see a valley
Covered with bones in blue
All the brave soldiers that cannot get older
Been asking after you

Hear the past a’ calling
From Armageddon’s side
When everyone’s talking
and no one Is listening
How can we decide

Do we find the cost of freedom
Buried in the ground
Mother Earth will swallow you
Lay your body down.
