Rock and Roll Woman
Buffalo Springfield Lyrics


There's a woman that you ought to know
And she's coming, singing soft and low
Singing rock and roll, she's a joy to know

'Neath the shadow of a soothing hand
I am free there, just to make my plans
Dream of faraway lands, anything close at hand
And she will follow me wide, do you know
Familiar places she's been by, that I know
Could it be, she don't have to try

And tomorrow, she's a friend of mine
And the sorrow, I see her face is lined
She's no longer blind, she's just hard to find

There's a woman that you ought to know
And she's coming, singing soft and low
Singing rock and roll, she's a joy to know

'Neath the shadow of a soothing hand,
I am free there, just to make my plans,
Dream of faraway lands, anything close at hand
And she will follow me wide, do you know
Familiar places she's been by, that I know
Could it be, she don't have to try

And tomorrow, she's a friend of mine
And the sorrow, I see her face is lined
She's no longer blind, she's just hard to find

I remember when I got home in 67, I didnt know who Buffalo Springfeild was. I soon learned that radio free Saigon was not the only station on the radio dial.

Charles Jones

Me, too.

Jim Shelledy

Thank you Helldorf. I was 15 years old. One of the few advantages of being 65......We had the greatest music.

@gato ryak i got that, i was mainly referring to simple things like jokes and what not. Politicaly, the world was in a very odd place at the time.

@Soul Bread In the 1950s, Americans could not say that they believed in Communism without risking getting put on trial. In the 50s and 60s, speaking openly about one's own homosexuality was very risky. Throughout 1950-1999 and even still today, in many parts of the USA, stating your non-belief in a god can get you fired and ostracized, but at least it not illegal.

Soul Bread

@Jim Wing. also. Kids were definently less soft back then. Im sorry, but this has just grown on me. You cant even say a joke without the whole media and world taking it seriously and wanting you gone. Freedom of speech is in a dark place, even now because of media, and the state of our society, even dating back 100s of years. Eventually though, this will be a thing of the past. The 50s through 99. Was a great time for freedom of speech. Despite police on black crime being awful, you could still voice your opinion, and say what ever you wanted with out every one calling you racist and cancelling you. I belive media and cancell culture has ruined comedy, video games, freedom of speech, and a portion of our society. Maybe this is what hes getting at. I say this because i see it at school, and online.

Soul Bread

Facts. Your time had some of the best music ever. Theres a reason it still holds up today! Love everything about your time for music.

Soul Bread

@Jim Wing. too be fair. Even now, there are dark times. Afganistan for example. History will always consist of bad times. Look! Riots even are happening now. I will always love my time, even during the rough times, but history will always have good and bad, and its just dumb to argue what history was worse, because they all are pretty bad.
