    He had white horses and ladies by the score
    All dressed in satin and waiting by the door...

    White lace and feathers, they made up his bed
    A gold covered mattress on which he was laid...

    He went to fight wars for his country and his king
    Of his honor and his glory, the people would sing...

    A bullet had found him his blood ran as he cried
    No money could save him so he laid down and he died...

    Yep...

    The first line "Stuck inside these four walls sent inside forever" was said to have meant the 4 members of the Beatles who had risen to such fame that there lives, for better or for worse, would never be the same again.

    More from '74:


    And the sound of the battle rang
    Through the streets of the old east side
    'Til the last of the hoodlum gang
    Had surrendered up or died

    There was shouting in the street
    And the sound of running feet
    And I asked someone who said
    "'Bout a hundred cops are dead!"

    I heard my mama cry
    I heard her pray ...

    Poor ol' Jimmy
    Sits alone in the moonlight
    Saw his woman kiss another man
    So he takes a ladder
    Steals the stars from the sky
    Puts on Sinatra and starts to cry

    Yes...I thought that It might've fell through the cracks. Not many lyrics but great song. I basically only had to hold back on the last line to not say the title.

    I was introduced to it, and very moved by it in the 1971 cult favorite Harold and Maude. Just this past summer it found new life being repeated time and again in a TV commercial for something that I have since forgotten what for.
    As an aside, Cat Stevens is one of my favorite artists ever.

    Good taste you have, and I can just bet there's a cool peaceful depth to you for him to be one of your favorites ever.

    My oldest sister first introduced him to me in the early 70's with "Moonshadow", and then when our church got cool and went a little modern at times they allowed us to mix "Morning Has Broken" into our hymns every once in a while.

    This tune from "Harold and Maude" will literally make me get real emotional and choke up when hearing it along side of watching the movie.

    Bizarre thing is that it's only been within the last year that I realized that Cat Stevens had written the Rod Stewart tune "The First Cut Is The Deepest". That was one of the first 45's that I ever bought when I was about 12, and while his name was surely on it in the credits, I doubt if I was looking too closely at stuff like that then.

    "their lives" (not "there lives") - I hate when I overlook such mistakes.
