Teach Your Children

Lyrics

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good-bye.

Best song of my life!
Would be a great #1 Country/Amer i c a n a hit today. Good message and life lessons.

Don't you ever ask them why should not have a question mark. It's a command, not a question, as in, please, don't you ever ask them why.

I don't know who's providing the lyrics on here, but a bunch of them are incorrect. Duh, just look at the album liner notes.
I wish Jerry played more pedal steel. He pretty much gave it up after around '73 or so.
Like lot's
jerrys part makes me cry...
I saw CS&amp;N in concert at the GARDEN STATE MUSIC CENTER back in the early '70's! Crosby announced to the sold out house that" If you're expecting us to do our old stuff tonight, you came to the wrong concert!" The songs were terrible and we soon left as did half of the those present. I'll never forget that!

I think the incomprehens i b l e words are make a world that we can live in
hhrothman
love this song...and know they LOVE YOU(Parents) H o w i e
This song also features the pedal steel work of the late, great Jerry Garcia.

Teach your children well or else I will crush them.
Saw them live a couple of years ago at an outdoor concert, was AWESOME. I bought a Teach Your Children T shirt and the words are on the back.
Thanks stleyes.
They are important words

One of those songs that will be sung forever like "Imagine"!

The counterpoint in parentheses is poorly done. I googled and found:
"Can you hear and do you care and
Can't you see we must be free to
Teach your children what you believe in
Make a world that we can live in."

Important, no? :)
Love this song. reminds me of my parents hippy days in washington state sitting around the camp fire watching them smoke a jay playing ghitar !! lol
Words to live by....
Such important lyrics...tim e l e s s . . . b r i n g s tears. Must see them live, so glad they still tour
tmolnar4
(make a world we can live in)
love the lyrics... strong!
greta song. great lyrics
lizlotz
Actually, it's Jerry on pedal steel guitar - despite all the Grateful Dead, JGB, and other recordings over the years, this is probably Jerry's most widely heard performance. And yes, great song.

Sounds like Jerry Garcia on lead guitar. Great tune.
