"Too Many Years" as written by and Jorma Kaukonen....
I opened the door and I
Found I was looking at danger
It's been too many years, but we're
Hiding our faces like strangers
She says that she's got to go
But there ain't no way
I'm letting her walk while
There's something to say

It's been too many years
To watch our hearts die this way

She's feeling a time, for a
Seasonal change and she's yearning
To shake the trees of our love in the streets
Where the leaves are for burning
All things on this Earth
Were made for the dying
A look in my soul says
It just ain't no use trying

It's been too many years
To watch our hearts die this way

In an unwritten time I thought that
Life was for sharing
And living together was simply
A matter of caring
But things did not work out like I planned
And
Alienation has left me here damned

It's been too many years
To watch our hearts die this way

    General CommentA sweet and sorrowful look at the breakup of a long relationship, so eloquently expressed by Jorma. You can hear the enduring love in there confronting the harsh reality of the inevitable.

    I love the second verse;

    She's feeling a time for a
    seasonal change and she's yearning
    to shake the trees of our love in the streets
    where the leaves are for burning
