"Bluebird" as written by and Stephen Stills....
Listen to my bluebird laugh
She can't tell you why
Deep within her heart, you see
She knows only crying
Just crying

There she sits, aloft at perch
Strangest color blue
Flying is forgotten now
Thinks only of you
Just you
Oh yeah

So, get all those blues
Must be a thousand hues
And be just differently used
You just know

You sit there mesmerized
By the depth of her eyes
That you can't categorize
She got soul
She got soul
She got soul
She got soul

Do you think she loves you
Do you think at all

Soon she's going to fly away
Sadness is her own
Give herself a bath of tears
And go home, and go home

    General CommentIts a love song. It's about the same person that Suite: Judy Blue Eyes on the first CSN album is about. Its about Stephen Stills girlfriend at the time, singer/songwriter Judy Collins.

    Few quick notes on the guitars and the album Buffalo Springfield Again. its both Stephen and Neil Young. Stephen is on the lead acoustic guitar and Neil is the trippy loud electric. Neil had quit Buffalo Springfield while they were recording the song and began to work on a solo album before he heard "Mr. Soul" being played on the radio in LA. He rejoined the band but much of it was already recorded, so he ended up overdubbing electric guitar to a few of the songs, this being one of them. There's a 9 minute version of it somewhere with an even longer guitar solo section. From Neil's attempted solo album, he brought in "Broken Arrow" and "Expecting to Fly", which feature no other member of the band other than Neil and overdubbed vocals by Richie Furay, although the beginning of "Broken Arrow" features "Mr Soul" with everyone in the band, but Neil, with drummer Dewey Martin singing the lead vocals.

    General Commentthat guitar is trippy as hell, and then the do you think she loves you part together is all just like a psychedelic orgasm. i have no idea what the hell the song is about, but if i had to guess its all about some girl hes just enamored with and is just describing her throughout the whole song.
