To me this song says don't hide the truth from your kids...They will find out the hard and bad way. My parents were always very upfront with me. they never got mad when I would admit to them my faults. they did a damn good job :)

Don't you ever ask them why should not have a question mark. It's a command, not a question, as in, please, don't you ever ask them why.

I don't know who's providing the lyrics on here, but a bunch of them are incorrect. Duh, just look at the album liner notes.

I wish Jerry played more pedal steel. He pretty much gave it up after around '73 or so.

I saw CS&amp;N in concert at the GARDEN STATE MUSIC CENTER back in the early '70's! Crosby announced to the sold out house that" If you're expecting us to do our old stuff tonight, you came to the wrong concert!" The songs were terrible and we soon left as did half of the those present. I'll never forget that!

This song also features the pedal steel work of the late, great Jerry Garcia.

Saw them live a couple of years ago at an outdoor concert, was AWESOME. I bought a Teach Your Children T shirt and the words are on the back.

One of those songs that will be sung forever like "Imagine"!

The counterpoint in parentheses is poorly done. I googled and found:
"Can you hear and do you care and
Can't you see we must be free to
Teach your children what you believe in
Make a world that we can live in."

Important, no? :)

Actually, it's Jerry on pedal steel guitar - despite all the Grateful Dead, JGB, and other recordings over the years, this is probably Jerry's most widely heard performance. And yes, great song.

Sounds like Jerry Garcia on lead guitar. Great tune.
