Diana Oughton

Una canzone divisa in due parti. La prima è dedicata Diana Oughton, studentessa impegnata nel gruppo "Students for a Democratic Society" e poi nel gruppo radicale dei Weathermen, rimasta uccisa nel 1970 mentre preparava una bomba per "portare a casa" la guerra che gli USA conducevano nel Vietnam.

Kent State

La seconda parte, a cui partecipano alle voci David Crosby e Graham Nash, è dedicata agli studenti uccisi alla Kent State University mentre protestavano contro la guerra.
Part I

How do you feel to shoot down your brother now
And bury us in cages of cement and steel
What do you see when you look at one another now
Who do you see tell me how do you feel

Sing a song for the children who are gone
Sing a song for Diana
Huntress of the moon and a lady of the Earth
Weather woman Diana

Part II

How do you feel as you cut down your children now
And leave them dying
On the grass in the sun

What do you see
When you look at one another now?
Tell me old man
Tell me where will you run?

Sing a song for the children going down
Remember the ones you knew
And remember what we sang
Remember how we danced
In America
So many years ago
