Long May You Run

Lyrics:
We've been through some things together With trunks of memories still to come We found things to do in stormy weather Long may you run. Long may you run. Long may you run. Although these changes have come With your chrome heart shinin' in the sun Long may you run Well, it was back in Blind River When I last saw you alive But we missed that ship on the long decline Long may you run. Maybe the Beach Boys have got you now With those waves singing' "Caroline" Rollin' down that empty road Get into the surf on time.

History of the song:
Neil's beloved Pontiac hearse, "Mort" (a.k.a. "Mortimer Hearseburg"), was the inspiration for this song. Neil drove "Mort" from Toronto to Los Angeles, where he met Stephen Stills and formed Buffalo Springfield.

Neil was driving to Sudbury when 'Mort' broke down in Blind River, June 1965. (Which is contradictory to the lyrics; "well it was back in Blind River, in 1962, when I last saw you alive")

The band was together from July through October 1976.
