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.

Books get burned. Plays get shut down. Songs become silent.

Sorry, but the sun runs out of fuel in 500 years. 🥶

There's a new song out about Afghanistan called BLOOD ON MY HANDS. Watch it, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBp5xVfMrhE and share it. Facebook and other's are suppressing it.

This song is just as relevant today as when it was first recorded.

Lyrics, yes. Music, hell no.

Maybe even more relevant

@Thomas Askew Many of those pro Trump protestors went to jail, as they should have. But they didn't set fire to property, nor kill anyone. The guy having the unrelated stroke the next day doesn't count. But BLM killed security guard David Dorn.
