After the GoldRush

18 11 2009

As a young man in the 70’s I used to day dream a lot. I remember lying on my bed in the warmth of the  afternoon sun withthe radio listening to Neil Young.

This is a rather strange song. I have never been able to figure out what inspired Neil to write these lyrics but it allowed anyone listening to them to imagine. Some of the words he wrote comes back hauntingly, lyrics like  “We got Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies”. Now some 40 years later, look at what we have done to Mather Nature! I guess the man saw what was coming. We just did not listen.
