Crosby, Stills & Nash - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes Lyrics

It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore
I am sorry
Sometimes it hurts so badly I must cry out loud
I am lonely

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard

Remember what we've said and done and felt about each other
Oh, babe have mercy
Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now
I am not dreaming

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Tearing yourself away from me now you are free
And I am crying
This does not mean I don't love you I do that's forever
Yes and for always

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard

Something inside is telling me that I've got your secret
Are you still listening?
Fear is the lock and laughter the key to your heart
And I love you

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard
And you make it hard
And you make it hard
And you make it hard

Friday evening
Sunday in the afternoon
What have you got to lose?

Tuesday morning
Please be gone I'm tired of you
What have you got to lose?

Can I tell it like it is? (Help me I'm sufferin')
Listen to me baby
It's my heart that's a sufferin' it's a dyin' (Help me I'm dyin')
And that's what I have to lose (To lose)

I've got an answer
I'm going to fly away
What have I got to lose?

Will you come see me
Thursdays and Saturdays?
What have you got to lose?

Chestnut-brown canary
Ruby-throated sparrow
Sing a song, don't be long
Thrill me to the marrow

Voices of the angels
Ring around the moonlight
Asking me said she so free
How can you catch the sparrow?

Lacy-lilting lyric
Losing-love lamenting
Change my life, make it right
Be my lady

Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

¡Que linda! Me la traiga a Cuba
La reina de la Mar Caribe
Quiero sólo visitarla allí
Y que triste que no puedo.
O Va! O Va!

Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

    The manson family killed the spirit of the sixes may they all burn in hell...

  3. Sgt. Stedenko

    How can this have almost 2000 thumbs down ? What did you dumb sum B's think you were clicking on

  4. rick weber

    ..good music is good music..regardless of time, labels..or prejudice..

  5. 7chill777

    Stephen Stills wrote this about his then-girlfriend, folk singer Judy Collins.

  6. Silas Marner

    Rhythm Leslie guitar - fantastic!

  7. Bud Listar

    I'm gonna be 66 tomorrow, thank God myself and this kind of music are still around.

  8. Sean Freeman

    That outro though

  9. P C

    When speaking about this era kids , this is just to let you know , your grandma and grandpa weren't just cool - they were sub zero.

  10. Z-Man

    Brilliant The Prototype for the Eagles

    Ben Stolz

    Yeah, where the drummer sang and dueling guitars / conservative use of the organ defined them (rolls eyes)...

  11. Gerry Leb

    Do you guys have any idea how hard it was for Judy Collins to get a date after this song came out?

  12. Clinton Adamson

    I was born in 1973 and this was still popular music on the radio. My dad was a DJ and we listened to everything but opera. I still love this stuff and listen to it now instead of the new stuff. They had it right back then.

  13. Good Golly Miss Polly

    Why don't people understand me after all this time?

    Good Golly Miss Polly

    I don't want to be popular. Why would I do that? It's all about me finding myself now. Certainly not pleasing anyone else. My kids are grown. I served my time. Everyone else is on their own. Who am I? Deeply, Truly. The Authentic Me. Where does she reside? They don't get it.

  14. Nick Landess

    1.9k *dislikes*?!?! What in the tar nation?

  15. Stan Mann

    best lyric ever written. I am prone to exaggeration. "It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore"

    x_x Haunted_Angel *..*

    Stan Mann What about this lyric though, tell me what you think... "Ooh La La" try to guess what song it's from too. If you can -Kayla


    That's my name but i want to be called something else. You could try to guess that too. Good choice of Lyrics, thumbs up.

    Stan Mann

    @x_x Haunted_Angel *..* the faces song about a grandpa telling his grandson about women

    Stan Mann

    It's eric Clapton Layla. I knew it right off the bat. But i don't like dancing on demand.

  16. Betsy Rovetto


  17. Betsy Rovetto

    Born in 1955. Need I say anymore............

  18. Patrick Kelcey

    Tell it like it is...
    Yes and for always...

  19. Irma Jimenez

    I remember this song as a young child always liked listening to it brings back a lot of memories of my childhood so young and inocent life was when I was growing up good memories.

  20. Patrick McNeil

    “Hey everybody,this is like our first show and we’re scared shitless!!!!!”
    Or something like that
    Can any one tell me what that’s from????

    Bob MacGuffie

    CSN at Woodstock

    Michael Paul


  21. Rob Robert

    Seen them in my home town,Cleveland, little buzzed can't remember the year it was definitely in 2000's, they came with Neil Young, $201.00 a ticket we were 12 rows back none of the security would let us out of our seats to go near the stage but I made it threw my Indians hat on the stage, Stephen Stills put on my hat and signed it, one of my treasures

  22. Mark Andrews

    Such a cool story behind this photo for the debut CSN album. As reported in Rolling Stone writer David Browne's excellent bio of the band, no one noticed that the guys were in the "wrong order" left-to-right for this LA photo shoot in 1969. On a whim, they had chosen the broken-down couch on the porch of this decrepit, vacant house to shoot the album's cover photo. So, they decided to go back the next day to get it right. Only when they did, the old house had been torn down. So, rather than pick a new site for the shoot, they went with this. Gotta love the vibe of that day. Croz is so goofy-grin stoned as Nash looks away. Keep rocking, guys.

  23. joanne pavlik

    Yes the late 60s and the 70s had the best music ever!!!! Now is computerized junk!

  24. sandra burns

    65 year old an still a hippie

  25. Bud B

    At 50 This music brings back memories of my childhood and how free
    We were!! This song rocks even though my generation is from the late 70s to late &0s... Thanks
    For rocking on....

  26. Peter Dodd

    Palette; a pallet is quite different

  27. omeara28

    Well...that's forever and for always...and I love you...will you come to see me Thursdays and Saturdays?

  28. Newbie999

    "I may be old but I got to see all the cool bands"

  29. Dan Miller

    Hey, uh, anybody holding?

    Katie Kane

    Got a laugh out of me brother and yes!

  30. Victor Garcia

    you can hear one track laying over the next. So much better than the remix

  31. Crystal Price

    Best harmonies ever! Thankfully we can still listen and appreciate csn and all the others of this generation. Peace and love to you all ✌🏻

    Mathias Ringle

    Right back at you girl!

  32. brainsareus

    like-minded commie bastard, here.
    so fuck off, Nazis

  34. Scott M

    I'm almost 43, a baby in many eyes and minds. Understandable. I'm forever grateful to my parents who raised me while listening to music like this in the background of my childhood

  35. Chez Hozay

    My first album...

  36. Bruce Storey

    Brilliant guitar, excellent vocals and , save for fantastic bass line - no extras. Just pure talent. Unsurpassed.

  37. Blaine Samuelson

    I cannot comprehend any dislike of this song for ANY reason..Period


    Maybe Judy Collins feels a bit awkward when she hears it but other than dislike

    Blaine Samuelson

    @Morbus Lol! Too true

  38. Dave Muise

    I can't imagine listening to csn than humping the boonies in Vietnam

  39. 우정식

    very goog~~~

  40. John Mc Cann

    I got completely drunk with my sister and two scots in Polly Magoos in Paris.Being Irish it was inevitable.This song brings it all back🤣

  41. Jonathan Husain

    Can't add much more except it was my first and favourite album. And I was like a big kid when I listened to it a few years ago when I actually travelled on the Marrakesh Express!


    1969 - LOL!
    All the "Stoners" in my English class, sitting in the back row, spacing out. Some of the busty chicks, not wearing bras. Nice scenery.
    Great memories.

  43. Hendrik de Bruin

    1.8 K dislikes? Who are these people? I wish I could just meet one of them. A human without a soul.....

  44. jingo kidd

    the jingo kid was here

  45. Steve Costanzo

  46. DanielWarPaint

  48. John Daniels


  49. Donn Bradley

    Live it while you got it. It may not be there tomorrow.

  50. Chairman of the Board

    I’m 52. I LOVE this song. The harmonies are perfect. The guitar playing is superb. What a masterpiece!

  51. Daplin1

    I'm starting to wonder how many people come to old rock songs to write paragraphs of fanfic

  52. Brad Byron

    Brilliant work on acoustic guitar

  53. Blue Orbiter Corporation

    If you have never listened to the version of this song by Foxes and Fossils, you ought to. They do it justice.

  54. Frank Olivas

    Huh? Oh yeah , you are what you are,

  55. Frank Olivas

    This song makes me wanna cry it’s that good

    Casey Butts

    Only if they are tears of joy...scratch that...sometimes the soul has to bleed too..tomatoe potatoe!!! What have you got to loose?

  58. Eddie Crupper

    1.8K people are letting the past remind them of who they are not now.

    Mark R.

    Regretfully true, watering the tree is the only way to freedom.

  59. Rabia Lockard

    I'm not that old but this music lives on in the hearts and minds of all that hear it. I love the 60's & 70's music, listening in December of 2019!

    Katie Kane

    Sharing this with my 13 year old grandson, he's getting a guitar that actually plays, instead of the rag he's been learning on, tomorrow, for Christmas. I'm thrilled to share his life & music!

  60. Seamus Jones

    Just makes me 😃 on the inside! 🎶 🍀

  61. Stanley Nhongonhema

    Was born in 83 but as a child I would play this record daily.....I still do even up to this day

  62. David Thompson

    what a fucking master piece and what a group

  63. Ray Okoa

    Again, all Stills guitars throughout. Nice vocal harmonies, and you make it hard...

  64. Lisa Weaver

    Stained of a band to life in history. Great stuff came from this band. Lasted longer then the Beatles!!

  65. adriaan vanberge

    Alvin Simon Theodore

  66. Shannon Manifold

    If you've never listened to CSN on acid, while smoking a giant doob, keep your fucking mouth shut.

  67. Mentalista Bohemio


  68. Mentalista Bohemio

    Sheer Masterpiece that will linger forever.

  69. MerkinMuffly

    Who's listening to this song in 2020? Yeah, me neither, but soon, very soon ...

  70. BK Dro

    I like this song...and I speak Spanish...the last lyrics I hear...that's all Gibberish...I figure its supposed to be Spanish


    Its Yiddish.

  71. Mentalista Bohemio


  72. popeye1250

    Wasn't this song about Steven Still's then girlfriend Judy Collins?


    Its always about some bitch bro

  73. Patricia de Chenier

    Crosby, Stills, and Nash - perfection, free of shrillness.

  74. Philip Olson

    2011, this was posted a while back. But even further back is the past reminding us of what we are now.
    A coincidence of names I am sure.

  75. James Jacocks

    Yep, I was there in the day and bought this album-wore it out. The originality and facile chords combined with harmonies I hardly thought possible made this a personal classic. There was something about the time as well, I admit. I was aware that America was the most musical land ever, and sadly, it's not anymore. The chief cause is the music business itself which rejects talent and destroys what it uses. It packages artists like they were window mannequins. I almost feel that some are bots.

    Katie Kane

    Bought a second copy of this, wore that one out too! Peace brother!

  76. Bruno Abreu

    Trying to understand 1.8k dislikes........

  77. Joe Heaney

    Guess she made it hard.

  78. Orient Beachbum

    I miss my #1 gf Judy so damn much.

  79. Loretta Buckner

    Thank God for the 60's-70's outstanding I remember !

    Loretta Buckner

  80. Ted Metcalf

    When I listen to this my neighbors do too.😎😎😎😎

  81. Anstria Tarot

    This was written for Judy Collins - love this.

    jenny Jenny

    Hmmm..that's special😊lucky girl..special go girl

  82. Peter Glen

    I'm hoping the people who dislike this, have more of an issue with it being a studio recording, and not the song itself.

  83. William Sandell

    Big album in my young life

  84. Sarah Smith

    I'm learned to harmonize in perfect mimic of all of their respective voices started from the time I was 5 and my mom played this album and So Far daily and always set the needle back to replay for us! Thanks ma ya old cool hippie, I miss you every day. See you in heaven...cuz you are so free how can I catch the sparrow?!

  85. Cindy Dufala

    I love this when it came out as much as i do today. Bravo ⚘⚘⚘

  86. darin zank


  87. Melanie McAllister

    beautiful music is still played daily and this is part of my playlist and part of my soul

  88. Jim Webb

    Methinks Neil Young harmonizing along with them


    Circa 1961 here. Grew up listening to music just like this. I thank God our Heavenly Father every day that he allowed me to embrace life in that era. Love to all.

  90. Krustyporkchop OG

    Dont compare Generations...
    Music is Timeless...
    You're just one key note away from being DUST.

  91. Noni Way

    Whoohoo man I was one happy camper growing up with CSN&Y. Yaaaayyy😁

    Lele Mason

    Yep, I grew up with 'em too and know EXACTLY what you mean. :) :)

  92. Thomas Myers

    Get those dirty boots off the couch!

  93. Ian Conn

    one of the worst songs i've ever heard. Rather listen to friday

  94. Lars Olsen

    Yes, this is a great song.

  95. Steven Lawrence

    Beautiful voices huh?

  96. journeystarr

    I read something about the house used in this pic. They used it originally as a last minute backdrop as they were losing daylight, but were seated out of order. When they went back the next day to get the correct shot, the house was gone, it had been demoed.

  97. Darryl Smith

    Not saying that there aren't good bands today but nothing like we had in the 60s and 70s

  98. lanusera ar

    vuelvan a Buenos Aires! son como el buen vino. Los amo <3

  99. Matt Cuddy

    I'm 61, and if you had this album in the Telefunken (16 horn and metal tweeters, four 12 inch dual cone Pegasus speakers) it would cause a party if I played it loud enough. On a 1948 HiFi tube set making any stereo run and hide. Built in a destroyed country.

  100. Chris Celona

    3:38 - chills!
