4 + 20 Lyrics

Artist: Stephen Stills
Album: Live


Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life,
the song of a woman and a man who lived in strife.
He was tired of being poor and he wasn't into selling door to door
and he worked like the devil to be more.

A different kind of poverty now upsets me so.
Night after sleepless night, I walk the floor and I want to know- why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home? Have I driven her away? Is she gone?

Morning comes to sunrise and I'm driven to my bed.
I see that it is empty and there's devils in my head.
I embrace the many colored beast. I grow weary of the torment, can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease.

I think that the second line is "the son of a woman and a man."

Not the "song" of a woman and a man.

yes. it is "the son of a woman.."

Yes, it is 'son' of a woman - however, if you are a woman singing this song, it makes for a pleasant adaptation!
