Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon

I used to think about myself in this song. Now I see my children. Moving to say the least.
LOVE Neil !!
Had no idea Bill Monroe wrote this, I bet the bluegrass style is more of a cut time feel, curious to find that one now.
Sounds like a dreams sequence to me, but I'm sure Neil had a heavy vision filled with irony and sarcasm. Maybe its a point in time that you wish you could live in forever and the realization that its not possible is the real mind blower. The original recording always had a much different sound than many of the other Neil songs of that day. Maybe there was a different producer then who knows.
The term "bittersweet " comes to mind...beaut i f u l song.
Best Music for a Fall Day!!!
brought a tear to my eye

I still get a shadow of a memory.. Yes you are leaving there to soon,..
Yes, I agree with Mark S. although "Old Man Take a Look at My Life" has a lot more irony. Go Neil!
This is THE quintessenti a l song about growing up. Gives me a lump in my throat and I'm well past 40.
