Still in melancholic mood and I like it. I wish I was in that crowd, in 1971 (my birth year) discovering Harvest... Before Harvest!
With thanks to Guitarman for finding this...sublime...
Hanging out with great friend and we both agree this song is worth singing together with with - enjoy:)
"Old Man" is an account of Young observing an older man on his ranch and noting the similarities in their lives. Like many of Young's songs from the time, it has an acoustic country-folk backbone, with low-key rock undertones.
Give me things that don't get lost.
