From their 1971 album of the same name. **The song is short by maybe 3 seconds at the beginning and 3 at the end, from the album track** Lyric interpretations can be found at: www.songfacts.com

If you can find Dave Mason "Live" at the Troubador you’re in for a DM treat. Recorded live . The stoned idiot in the background with all the woo-hoo’s is yours truly..lol.
i was a yr old when this song was released… i listen to it at least once or twice a week. Often they say nothing is timeless..i beg to differ.
@hudson3130 …thanks for the history… my favorite as well… awesome track.
Three of my favourite albums of all time: John Barleycorn Must Die; The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys; Shootout at the Fantasy Factory
@motownharry Hello: Do you remember the 1970 Dave Mason album Alone Together?
one of the greatest songs ever performed
The title of this song refers to an inscription written by actor Michael J. Pollard in Jim Capaldi’s book while they were both in Morocco. Capaldi and Pollard were planning to work on a movie that was never filmed. The song is my favorite of all time. Thank you so much bze2nlz4!
This song is the beauty of rock ‘n roll. Sit back, relax and let it take you there.
@zx1400a7f I believe dear (sir?) that if a mind can figure out many of the details of computers and related technology, one can as well master an instrument, there is nothing terribly complicated about the piano part here, though I love it (as many other songs are) for it’s simplicity, though the solo does render some jazz improv.. I love the band and this song, that’s why I’m here, as usual the sum of the parts exceeds any individual parts taken by them self, great sax also!
I used to love sitting alone in the dark with this song on… I still do, actually.
1 word….Goose Pimples…
OK 2 words….
2 dislikes now:( I think some people do it just for kicks. No way you can not like this song!
Seriously? What’s this ad BS? Just gimme some Traffic already
This was a real breakout album, Thanks for the memories 🙂
Saw them perform this at Ithaca college in about 1972.
@motownharry Your killing me…. Why would you not go forward with you goals… I think you gave into peer pressure… Don’t give in…. Be your self… Your memory serves you well.
@motownharry wow you just gave me some info,,i never new dave mason was in both of those bands,,,i just remember his hit WE JUST DISSAGREE,,,,,
They just don’t get any better than this, this reminds me of being in korea on acid…great trip in 74
Steve Windwoods voice is awesome i love it
@zx1400a7f How true….. 🙁
It’s mesmerizing to me, incredible. I heard this as a kid in the 80’s and was intrigued by the melodic piano and his voice. This type of talent is still out there, they are just being taught to use computers instead of their minds. We just got to help them out a little bit…
Music sure has changed in recent years. Approximately 2 people who voted on this song dislike thoughtful music.
