CINNAMON GIRL Lyrics by Neil Young

Cinnamon girl lyrics

She was tall and had short blonde hair, in the summer it would get some reddish highlights. But here's the other thing about this story that makes it a little cosmic. I was one of the first flower child kids at my high school. The final word on this should appropriately be Jean Ray's brother, for these two great songs were clearly about her. I got dangerously ill after I met Neil. There will be kissing involved. If so, we must find new answers! It's a song about the love for music and knowing that playing music for a living is what he is destined to do.

Neil Young News: So Who Was The The Story Behind The Song

Cinnamon girl lyrics

Get on that and off that dead end road to nowhere. I guess the best way to describe it was I found him to be intoxicating. I told my friend I was going to try and find a drummer to be my boyfriend. Never get sick of it no matter how many times I hear it. Cinnamon Girl recorded 20 March 1969, first session with Crazy Horse. Neil wanted some Cinnamon on his French Toast, and there was none. It was featured in an Time magazine article about teenage nightclubs in the early 60's.

Cinnamon Girl Lyrics

Cinnamon girl lyrics

It was the last stop on his 2008 North American Tour. I guess Cinnamon Girl can be whoever he chooses. Jean Ray's husband Jim was Phil Och's college roommate. Just listen to the intricate layers of guitar riffs and extremely passionate fervor in which Neil plays his guitar in this song. He seemed to be a little shy but amused by the situation. I would generally tend to take Young's word for it until proven otherwise. I think 'Cowgirl in the Sand' is also about me.

Lyrics for Cinnamon Girl by Neil Young

Cinnamon girl lyrics

We talked about horseback riding, getting a farm one day, and the fact that I wouldn't tell him my age. That's a very cool story of the origin of an excellent song. I think it's just a about an ideal girl. Young always changed his styles to evade his fame. He thought it came out to upbeat for the subject matter. It was as though I could clearly see his future.

(Dunkelbunt):Cinnamon Girl Lyrics

Cinnamon girl lyrics

The writer says I was a high school track star and discovered. Look at what ryan from Canada and deadzeppelin have to say, cuz they're right. Neil has paid homage to Phil Ochs in several interviews throughout the course of his life. I've always had the feeling that that when the time is right, and the stars are aligned we would somehow meet again. And why was it hard to explain to his wife, Susan? Jean performed and recorded several Phil Ochs songs in her duo with her husband Jim Post. That is of course a parody of the absolutely asinine explanations writers of songs with lots of drug references offer guilable fans when the fake example is about mixing.

Cinnamon Girl Lyrics

Cinnamon girl lyrics

When we were together that night, I asked Neil to write a happy song about me and he promised he would. He has written several hundred songs and produces and records his own music for his own music label. You should research Phil Ochs - a major, major songwriter, teller of truths, and advocate of human rights. So, this beautiful waitress, ran across the street to the Grocery store and bought some and brought it back and he told her he would write a song about her. He explained that the girl was on roller skates wearing a bikini. A very memorable face and the kind of personality that intrigues Neil.

Lyrics for Cinnamon Girl by Prince

Cinnamon girl lyrics

I looked up at him and he was the cutest boy I had ever seen. I think he was so touched by my caring about their suffering through that awful ordeal, that his song came from mine. Hey, only Neil knows for sure. The single has been released in several formats. Well, this is what we think it would be like. He was in Toronto through the rest of the summer, the fall and winter and then until the spring of 1966 when he departed for L. So, I was unable to meet him as planned at The Riverboat.

Cinnamon girl lyrics

Anonymous I was sitting by the Cinnamon Girl last evening in the front row of The Princess Of Wales theatre in Toronto, while Neil was conversing with Johnathan Demme on stage. Correction--Jim Glover not Jim Post was the correct Jim in Jim and Jean. He has produced ten platinum albums and thirty Top 40 singles during his career. He played the Riverboat in a string of dates starting in early Feb. He was solo on that leg in Ann Arbor Nov. Sharry - thanks for all the research! I think you still have a fever.
