Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: Almost Cut My Hair (Testo e video)

Artista: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Canzone: Almost Cut My Hair (David Crosby) 1970
Album: Déjà Vu

“Almost Cut My Hair” is a song by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, originally released on the band’s 1970 album Déjà Vu.[1] It was recorded at Wally Heider Studios on January 9, 1970.[2]

The song describes a real-life dilemma faced by many hippies: whether to cut one’s hair to a more practical length, or leave it long as a symbol of rebellion.[3] It was written by David Crosby, and features solo vocals by Crosby, with the rest of the band joining in on instruments rather than on vocal harmony, as in many of their other songs. Unlike most of the tracks on Déja Vu, the quartet and their studio musicians, Dallas Taylor (drums) and Greg Reeves (bass), all recorded it at the same place and time.[1] It was one of only two songs from the album that Neil Young joined in on, despite not writing.[4] (Almost Cut My Hair – Wikipedia)

Almost Cut My Hair

Almost cut my hair
It happened just the other day
Its getting kind of long
Could have said it was in my way,
but I didn’t and I wonder why
Feel like letting my freak flag fly
Yes, I feel like I owe it to someone

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas
And I’m not feeling up to par
It increases my paranoia
Like looking in a mirror and seeing a police car
But I’m not giving in an inch to fear
Cause I promised myself this year
I feel like I owe it to someone

But when I finally get myself together
I’m gonna get back in that sunny southern weather
And I’ll find a place inside to laugh
Separate the wheat from the chaiff
I feel like I owe it to someone
