  • Guinnevere had green eyes
    Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    When she'd walk down
    Through the garden
    In the morning after it rained
    Peacocks wandered aimlessly
    underneath an orange tree
    Why can't she see me?

    Guinnevere
    Drew pentagrams
    Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    Late at night
    When she thought
    that no one was watching at all
    She shall be free
    As she turns her gaze
    Down the slope
    to the harbor where I lay
    Anchored for a day

    Guinnevere
    Had golden hair
    Like yours, mi'lady like yours
    Streaming out when we'd ride
    Through the warm wind down by the bay
    Yesterday
    Seagulls circle endlessly
    I sing in silent harmony
    We shall be free Writer/s: DAVID CROSBY
