Mark from Byrdstown, TnDamn I love it when Morrison screams 'LAND HO!' in the middle of the song.....what a pure voice he had even when screaming at full volume.Ive read he started out with a rather thin timid voice but built it up trying to sing over the din in the clubs The Doors started out in.He built it into the definitive rock voice of all time.
Dustin from Waycross, GaThis song represents a return to adventure that has come after years of living in boredom and enduring an unadventurous lifestyle. It reminds me of someone like Ulysses, who when returned to Ithaca found that he entirely missed the adventures he once had and decided that he wanted to venture out once again in his elder age. Perhaps the numbers at the end of the song "If i get my hands on a number 5 gonna skin that little girl alive" refer to grading women on a number scale. 5 being the best or most attractive and 2 being an average looking woman whose best characteristic is that of her provisions, such as making a good wife. Thats why "if i get my hands on a number 2, come back home and marry you". Perhaps the elder adventurer, "grandpa", will find a new love on his new adventures.
