Long May You Run

We've been through some things together
With trunks of memories still to come
We found things to do
In stormy weather
Long may you run

Long may you run
Long may you run
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Well, it was back in Blind River in 1962
When I last saw you alive
But we missed that shift on the long decline
Long may you run

Long may you run
Long may you run
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Maybe The Beach Boys have got you now
With those waves singing "Caroline No"
Rolling down that empty ocean road
Getting to the surf on time

Long may you run
Long may you run
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run
songwriter: Neil Young

performed by: The Stills Young Band

date released: 1976 by The Stills Young Band

For those of you too young to remember, the 70s were a topsy-turvy time in music reflecting the protest of the Viet Nam War and American societal morals in general. Heavy 'protest music' such as songs written and recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young contrasted with the light, harmonic and some say, vapid music of The Beach Boys whose only interest seemed to be surfing on Californian beaches with Rhonda, Barbara Ann and other California girls. In 'Long May You Run', Neil Young makes reference to The Beach Boys evoking a comparison of styles.

May "who" run and how far and where are you going?
At the 2012 Grammy Awards, it was The Beach Boys who had the last run. That said, long may Neil run.
