Her name was Joanne, and she lived in a meadow by a pond.
And she touch'd me for a moment,
with a look that spoke to me of her sweet love.

It's the story of a man who has stronger feelings for a woman named Joanne than she does for the him. He hangs around her for awhile and she starts to develop stronger feelings for the man. But like many futile love stories her new stronger feelings do not last and the man finds himself wistfully lamenting the turn of events that drives Joanne away.
One of my favorite songs and one I learned to play on the guitar. I love Michael Nesmith's music, and many others of similar genre. There are so many artist such as he that doesn't get the recognition he and others deserve.

wonerful description! I totally agree!
on a side note, i have heard this song like 50 million times and still don't really get it. Maybe its a deep subject for such a shallow mind....
Mike Nesmith is one of the all-time most under-rated talents. He can be surprisingly and startling with his scope of song-writing abilities, his lyrics are nearly always clever and above the rest of the pack, and he can also put forth a song as comfortable as a big friendly sofa on a perfect country evening
beautiful sounds
