TWO FOR TUESDAY


Not every song that will be featured here will be what is generally considered as being “Christian” in the eyes of this world. For some will be anguished cries from the pit of despair, and others will be quite obviously ferverent rants of rebellion. Nonetheless, be assured that they will all be of our Heavenly Father (in one way or another) and I hope that you have been given ears to hear the message.


Teach Your Children
Crosby, Stills & Nash
You
Who are on the road
Must have a code
That you can live by
And so
Become yourself
Because the past
Is just a goodbye

Teach
Your children well
Their father’s Hell
Did slowly go by
And feed
Them on your dreams
The one they picked
The one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them why
If they told you you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

And you
Can you hear and
Of tender years
Do you care and
Can’t know the fears
Can you see we
That your elders grew by
Must be free to
And so please help
Teach your children
Them with your truth
You believe and
They seek the truth
Make a world that
Before they can die
We can live in

Teach
Your parents well
Their children’s Hell
Will slowly go by
And feed
Them on your dreams
The one they picked
The one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them why
If they told you you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you


Ohio
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Tin soldiers and Nixon’s comin’
We’re finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin’
Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunnin’ us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunnin’ us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know

Tin soldiers and Nixon’s comin’
We’re finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin’
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Coleen!!! I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to post anything today. For our Internet connection was down for at least 6 hours that I am aware of, but I was finally able to get online around 2 hours ago. Anyway, I am really glad you liked this. Tune in for The Doors next week (I hope).

  4. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Sandie!!! Teach Your Children is one of my favorite songs, as well. I especially like the turn-around at the end, where it becomes teach your parents well.

  7. Teach your children well was one of my favorite songs back in the day. I love these little blasts from the past. Nothing beats the oldies

  8. Since I am a parent now, this song takes on a whole new meaning, and I often well up when I listen to it...Deja Vu is a fav in my car, particularly, Woodstock!!!

  10. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Amy!!! Yes, that song does indeed take on an entirely different meaning after you become a parent, and "Woodstock" was certainly in the running for this post. There are several groups that have more than a couple of songs that have had an impact upon me, and if I ever get around to bringing CSN&Y back, Woodstock will be included.
