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.

Gayle's Cool Crafts and Sewing

All Neil Young did was play this song. Stephen Stills wrote it. Why all the praise for the guy who dumped the band the night before their scheduled gig on the Tonight Show? I think he was probably a jerk who was forgiven for his tendency to bail on people because he had some talent.

Too bad he is a left wing libtard. You guys in the US can have him. We have enough cucky lefties in Canada.
