For What It's Worth
Buffalo Springfield Lyrics


There's somethin' happenin' here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
A-tellin' me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
And nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speakin' their minds
A-gettin' so much resistance from behind

I think it's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

What a field day for the heat (ooh-ooh-ooh)
A thousand people in the street (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Mostly say "Hooray for our side" (ooh-ooh-ooh)

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line
The man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down (we better)

Stop, now, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down (we better)

Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

1:49 Neil Young, rocking in the free world even back then!
In 500 years, this song will still be playing.

@julie byrne You have it seriously twisted here. This song was written by Stephen Stills and he is the genius behind it. You could litterally have had any musician do the part that Neil Young plays. Stephen stills is the creative genius behind this not Neil Young. FYI, Stephen stills was probably the more talented and prolific of the two people. Neil Young had a great solo carreer, but Stills is the creative force behind Buffalo Springfield.
