Lyrics

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

Love it, melancholy though it is.

It's Joni. I mean what else is there to say?
One of the last songs I learned on the guitar! Open tuning, with a few hammers and couple of tricky sequences in the verse. But one of the great pieces of music in my lifetime. Magnificent gift from Joni to the world.

One of the first songs I learned with my guitar - a long time ago
her voice was never better, so smooth, so pure!
