Down By The River (Live 1970)

Lyrics

Be on my side I'll be on your side, baby
There is no reason for you to hide,
This much madness is too much sorrow,
It's impossible to make it today,

Be on my side I'll be on your side, baby
There is no reason for you to hide,
This much madness is too much sorrow,
It's impossible to make it today,

Neil Young and Humbolt..... . . .
I am living in a van, Down By The River
rest in peace danny whitten...fr o m the 1st crazy horse i believe...
Tis by coincidence, as me, little ol me, is my measure of the good music by the good men of rocks glorious history and past, living on in true and living glory, rocking to the truest degree of truth of that which is the truest nature of Rock and Roll, which is truth, and in all emotions, may that truth Rock on forever even as I sit by the banks of the Hudson River alone and in this barrenness that I am now made of.
Is this song not talking about murder.
Vintage NY & Crazy Horse. Neil is still feeling his way along to his own unique LOUD VOLUME JAM style. I like the looseness of this version. Play on.
One more. Listen to this version with the Horse then listen to the version of Shakey doing it solo at Massey Hall. Two awesome, completely different versions. +1!
Yeah, he's killing it on the guitar but the Horse is back there hammering it out too!
Long live Caballo Loco!
Love the fact that he's releasing these shows.

Great musician, making guitar talk!!!!
one of the greats..a true original
I had barely heard of NEIL YOUNG before I was in the army,but when I was released, he was a favorite, and still is.
I have listened to young my whole life, I just love his music !
He kills it on this song.
Gorgeous rock tune from whom else but one of our greatest rock legends..
There's no reason for you to hide, or me for that matter of fact.
Let us not forget the late great Danny Whitten.
