  1. "For I will not be part of her cocktail generation, partners waltz devoid of all romance, the music plays and everyone must dance, I'm bowing out I need a second chance." 'Have always loved that lyric.

  2. Love this but those other players, man seriously, I feel like Don was experimenting a bit here

  3. This same video is on Youtube with a studio recording that is just superlative! Can’t believe the difference when I hear how twangy this version is….🤦🏻‍♂️. The other version is on Retro Channel Anglo BUT IT IS THE SAME VIDEO!😂

  4. My favorite McClean song laced by lovely vocals and grand guitar accompaniment. Don is an excellent guitarist, a fact that's been lost into the pages of time.

  5. WHY DO THESE HAUNTING LYRICS CALL OUT TO ME? IS THERE NO ONE ELSE TO SEE WHAT I HAVE BEEN SEEING/LIVING THESE YEARS?FULL OF MEANING, PIERCING MY SOUL, YET PAINTING A STOP SIGN ON THE ROAD LEFT AHEAD. TOLLING ON 100'S OF SONGS/POEMS & MORE, WILL MY DESTINY BECOME "THE LOST LENORE" & EDGAR ALLEN POE MY LEGACY?

  6. "For I will not be part of her cocktail generation, partners waltz devoid of all romance, the music plays and everyone must dance I'm bowing out, I need a second chance"

    Lets just take a minute to appreciate how amazing that lyric is deffinately describes how I feel about music these days

  7. Don McLean…. what an awesome talent, and the phrasing and timing he uses when he sings make his songs so special. He has a wonderful voice.
