« le: 24 janvier 2023 à 11:40:19 »
Voici un theme paru dans l'album "Déjà Vu" (1970) de CSN&Y. La v.o. est deja super belle et je suis epate qu'on puisse faire egalement une reprise si belle version a l'uke, meme si l'instrument est plus limite en ambitus. Chapeau Erivel

Deux v.o.

La version studio:

Solo live dans le programme de Dick Cavette, qq's heures apres woodstock (19 Aout 1969). Vous noterez Joni Mitchel assise a cote de Stephen Stills, David Crosby en face et les membres du Jefferson Airplane.

"4 + 20" (Stephen Stills)
Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life
The song of a woman and a man who lived in strife
He was tired of being poor
And he wasn't into selling door to door
And he worked like the devil to be more

A different kind of poverty now upsets me so
Night after sleepless night, I walk the floor
And I want to know- why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home
Have I driven her away? Is she gone?

Morning comes to sunrise and I'm driven to my bed.
I see that it is empty and there's devils in my head
I embrace the many colored beast
I grow weary of the torment, can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease
