HEY HEY, BYE BYE . . .
You see, folks, Neil and I have been tight ever since we formed The Buffalo Springfield in LA back in '66. Later on, I write Cinnamon Girl for him, in honor of this gal we knew who just loved to sprinkle that tasty powder in her hot apple cider. She liked nutmeg too, but "Nutmeg Girl" sounded too much like a dude in love with a horse.
Speaking of which, the name "Crazy Horse"? My idea. The "Cowgirl in the Sand"? My girlfriend. The entire inspiration for "Rust Never Sleeps"?
Well that was Elvis and the Sex Pistols, but I'm sure I spoke to him about that idea at some point.

But I see no harm (though probably not much good either) coming from this song. And hopefully it'll be a good song. Anyone alienated by Neil's politicking wasn't gonna vote for an opponent of Bush & his allies anyhow.
