Some of them were dreamers
And some of them were fools
Who were making plans and thinking of the future
With the energy of the innocent

Jackson Brown , great singer , words that are very deep that has meaning He's one of a kind .
Such a beautiful song, one of my favs.
Jackson's music embraces the human struggle in the battle to live with integrity and at least, a little hope
Thanks, Jackson for answering the question "what happened to the movement and all the hopes of changing the world. ..I have been a true believer

A musical analysis of the 60s countercultu r e I grew up in..the man is a genius and this is one of, if not, his best.

Love Jackson Brown and everything he stands for
...and Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam. At least the piano says so.
From late for the sky to running on empty the man hit a grand slam every time . After that he started with the political garbage but from 1973 through 1977 he was on top of his game. Terrific stuff from such a young guy then...

I haven't heard this song in 20 years. Then it was hyperbole. Now it is prophecy.

Oh, yeah.

I feel that this song is about the best one Jackson Brown ever recorded.
