Happy Fathers Day Ron, ....................... Love Neil!

His favourite artist was in town coincidentally on Father's Day. So after depositing the wains with Granny for the night - it was off to the great big City of Dublin for a night of rocking tunes.
My handsome chef was certain that we would be the biggest Neil Young FAN present - as Irish people probably did not even know who he was.............................ha ha ha.
Little did he know and much to his happy surprise, it was a sold out concert. Yes, 12,998 other people showed up to the O2 concert venue in Dublin and sang their hearts out.
One guy in particular standing behind us knew every word and after the concert Ron and he bonded over a few beers.

Although we have most of Neil Young's Cd's, and Ron has seen him in concert more times than he could care to divulge (over the last 35 years!!!) my one favourite song is most definitely the one copied below.
The song is titled MOTHER EARTH but has become otherwise known as
Look it up on YOU TUBE here

Oh Mother Earth
Neil Young

Oh, mother earth, With your fields of green
Once more laid down by the hungry hand
How long can you give and not receive
And feed this world ruled by greed
And feed this world ruled by greed.
Oh, ball of fire in the summer sky
Your healing light, your parade of days
Are they betrayed by the men of power
Who hold this world in their changing hands
They hold the world in their changing hands.
Oh, freedom land can you let this go
Down to the streets where the numbers grow
Respect mother earth and her giving ways
Or trade away our children's days
Or trade away our children's days.
Respect mother earth and her giving ways
Or trade away our children's days.
Need I say more?
That is all the WiseWords I have for today,
