David Crosby – Hero lyrics

David Crosby: Vocal, Guitar
Jeff Pevar: Guitar
James 'Hutch' Hutchinson: Bass
Michael Finnigan: Keyboards, Harmony Vocals
Jody Cortez: Drums
Kipp Lennon: Harmony Vocals
Intro. (Keyboard and Electric Guitar)
It was one of those great stories that you can't put down at night
The hero knew what he had to do and he wasn't afraid to fight
The villain goes to jail while the hero goes free
I wish it were that simple for me

And the reason that she loved him
Was the reason I loved him too
And he never wondered what was right or wrong
He just knew, he just knew

Instrumental (Keyboard and Electric Guitar)
Shadow and shade mix together at dawn
But by the time you catch them simplicity's gone
So we sort through the pieces my friends and I
Searching through the darkness to find the breaks in the sky

And the reason that she loved him
Was the reason I loved him too
And he never wondered what was right or wrong
He just knew, he just knew

Instrumental (Keyboard and Electric Guitar)
And we wonder yes, we wonder
How do you make sense of this
When the hero kills the maiden
With his kiss, with his kiss

Instrumental (Keyboard and Electric Guitar) Aaaah...
It was one of those great stories that you can't put down at night
The hero knew what he had to do and he wasn't afraid to fight
The villain goes to jail while the hero goes free
I wish it were that simple for me

It were that simple for me

Ending (Keyboard and Electric Guitar)
