This song is about the old man that lived on Neil's ranch. The old man took care of the cattle. Great song!

Love Neil. One of my favorite songs by him. By anybody. Found out about him by a friend. Fell in love with his music instantly.
Report as inappropriate
The old man Neil was singing about was in reference to a work hand on a ranch he purchased in '69 in Laurel Canyon. The man was an employee before Mr. Young bought the place and let him stay on. In the '80's I lived not far from Neil in the Santa Cruz mountains. The Loma Prieta earthquake in '89 brought Neil to the downtown area to play free benefit concerts, what more can you say? Character people! Character!

I guess there should've been a sequel about 34 and so much more, with the passing of each decade. I guess Harry didn't mention it in the cradle.

And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime.

If you can hear this whispering you are dying.

I never said I was frightened of dying.

I also needed a little medical attention that was probably around 10 years late, but I worked through it. They can never say I didn't work through the pain, they might say I ran from the pointless ignorance of it all.

At 24 I realized how much of life was a giant gamble, there is the safe way or the norm, and there is the running game and no end in sight. I chose the latter because AI liked the adventure of it all, but things got strange and came to a screeching halt somewhere around 5 years after the fact. Maybe it was a pause for station Identificati o n . Maybe just a break from the acts, or the axe, or the trapdoor.

Now I am an old man. I remember when the Buffalo Springfield came to Boston and played in a small nightclub for all ages. I couldn't afford the $2 cover. The streetcar only cost a nickel or a dime to get there from the suburbs, but money was tight back in the mid-sixties. Oh we'll. I got to party in David Crosby's house in the late 60's. Nobody was home, but his door was always unlocked in the late sixties.

I remember when I was 24 and I heard the song for the first time and I knew it was 1 profound time in my life basically because it's so true. Talk about out of nowhere, Neil Young was there And hehas never left. Take just a second and... think about it.... pretty awesome

Introspectiv e and honest. Two characterist i c s that make for a well written song. Truth is all I ever sought after. I think its a major part of what makes us curious for the journey.

when I was 24 I really identified with this song. Now that I'm much older I could just replace old Man with Young Man and really identify with this song........ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
