3 Year Old Covers Neil Young's "Comes A Time"

OK, we admit that we must receive on any given day here at Thrasher's Wheat, at least a half dozen or more Neil Young covers.

Some good. Some not so good.

We usually listen a few seconds and move on.

Now this isn't the best cover of Neil Young's "Comes A Time" we've ever heard. But maybe the youngest Young cover -- 3 years old?!
Hi Thrasher,

Just wanted to say I've been reading your site on close to a daily basis for quite some time.

I'm a huge Neil fan as my wife can attest. After the Gold Rush is what did it for me. But one of my favourite songs is Comes A Time, and that whole album is a beauty too. It was one of the first songs I ever sang to a group of people (around a campfire to children at a summer camp). More recently I've adopted it as a useful lullaby to sing to my 3 year old son before bed. He loves it and repeats all the words. On a hike the other day while he was sitting up on my shoulders I captured him doing his best to cover the song, and thought I'd share.

So here you go. It's never too early to be a Neil Young fan!

Thanks Geoff! You're right -- You can never be too young (or old) to be a Neil Young fan!

That's how we keep what we give away....

Excellent. Amazing how smiles, song and sound enrich the soul.

I recall that being one of the first songs I ever learned back in the days when I first picked up the guitar 30 years ago. I came home from AZ to NY for Christmas and brought my guitar home and was playing by myself in the basement, my 5 year old niece came down and proceeded to sing with me that song about a dozen times. She still rememebers that day.

my eyes are wet remembering it now seeing that video.

..and a child shall lead them...
