  1. neil young'ın 75 yapımı zuma albumunun cortez the killer ile birlikte en şahane parçalarından. bu eseri carrie snodgress den ayrılması üzerine yazmış. bir nevi young'in aldatılmayla yüzleşmesi ve kefaretini ödemesidir. o acı dolu umursamaz gitar vuruşlarını bile hissettirir, bir iki yanlış nota, akor ve young a ait ses kaymaları gayet uyumludur ruh halinin tanımlamasında.

    danger bird, he flies alone
    and he rides the wind
    back to his home
    although his wings
    have turned to stone

    and we used
    to be so calm
    now ı think
    about you
    all day long
    'cause you've been
    with another man
    here you are
    and here ı am.

    that's the moment
    that he cracked
    long ago in the
    museum with his
    friends.

    the jailbird takes the raps
    and he finds himself
    spread-eagled on the tracks
    but the training that he learned
    will get him nowhere fast.

    and ı know we
    should be free
    but freedom's just
    a prison to me
    'cause ı lied
    to keep it kind
    when ı left you
    far behind.

    with the rain
    pounding on his
    back he recalls
    the moment that
    he cracked long
    ago in the museum
    with his friends.
    and like those
    memories the rain
    keeps pounding
    down, down, down.

    and though these wings
    have turned to stone
    ı can fly fly fly away.
    watch me fly above the city
    like a shadow on the sky.
    fly, fly, fly.
