Songfacts®:

  • Here, Neil Young celebrates a homecoming after a long journey.

    Good to see you
    Good to see you again
    Good to see your face again
    Good to see you


    Young explained in a track-by-track on Thrasher's Wheat: "I wrote this on the back of the bus, early on in the tour. All I had was the line 'Good to see you,' and I thought, 'Well, what good is that?' But it said what needed to be said. It's about coming home after being gone a long time."
