Crosby, Stills & Nash – Find The Cost Of Freedom lyrics

Daylight again, following me to bed
I think about a hundred years ago, how my fathers bled
I think I see a valley, covered with bones in blue
All the brave soldiers that cannot get older been askin' after
You
Hear the past a callin', from Ar- -megeddon's side
When everyone's talkin' and noone is listenin', how can we
Decide?

(Do we) find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground

Mother earth will swallow you, lay your body down
Find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground
Mother earth will swallow you, lay your body down
(Find the cost of freedom buried in the ground)

    The singer is reflecting back "a hundred years ago" (Civil War) at how his "fathers bled." Imagining "a valley, covered with bones in blue" (dead Union soldiers who fought and died for the freedom of others). This song, which I believe was written in the early 1970s, comments on the controversy of war at that time and the quality of debate surrounding the War in Vietnam - "When everyone's talkin and no one is listenin', how can we decide?" It ends with the rhetorical question: Do we still find the cost of freedom buried in the ground?

    I don't know exactly what Crosby, Stills and Nash were thinking when they wrote the lyrics to "Find The Cost Of Freedom," but today it was a large oil spill in Santa Barbara, CA that caused me to remember the refrain, "Mother earth will swallow you, lay your body down..."
