Subject: Teach Your Children descant

Hi, gang.

I'd just like to know if anyone here knows the words to the descant that Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young sing during the second verse of "Teach Your Children." Actually, I suppose it would be Crosby, Stills, and Young that sing it, while Graham Nash sings "And you / of tender years / can't know the fears / that your elders grew by." I guess the fear that my tender ears have grown into is STILL not being able to make out all the words they sing. Thanx.

Don't know it well enough myself to know whether This site includes the lyrics for the descant.

Nope, Nigel, that doesn't show the descant. Somewhere I have a CSN&Y songbook. I will try and find it if it doesn't show up first.

This page has stuff at the bottom that begins "you of tender years". Is that all of it?

No, it's behind the lyrics, it's something like "can you hear me/ do you care/ can you see we/ must be free to/ teach your children/ you believe them/ make a world that/ we can live in"

What a lovely song it is, both musically and in its message.

I don't know that I ever did much to teach mine other than by being around and hoping they would pick up the right values through hints and some sort of osmosis. They've turned out pretty OK and I don't even know if my wife and I can claim much of the credit, but maybe we didn't do too badly. Maybe helping them to find the right peer group is at least as important as anything which we say explicitly.

There's a lot to be said for adopting the song as an alternative to some fairly crap national anthems, as was suggested on another thread recently.

I always thought it was "we can live in peace," with "peace" coming in at the same time as the next "teach." (No, I never knew the whole descant.)

Listening to the CD, I think that Timbrel has it pretty much spot on.

Wow, I've not listened to this in a long time

Suprised how good it still sounds!

Can you hear
And do you fear
And can't you see
We must be free
To teach your children
What you believe in
Make a world that we can live in.

From the liner notes on the vinyl release of "Four Way Street."

Just thought I'd pass on a useful tip I got at a workshop. To produce a descant easily, take the tenor part of a song, raise it a couple of octaves and fancy it up a bit. It works.

That's not a tip, that is, more or less, a description of what a descant part is--

There's a nice example of the descant on this recording by Kathy Mattea, Alison Krauss,& Suzy Boggus:
...not that I can make out the words. Note the familiar faces in the audience.

While the liner notes (cited above) have the second line of the descant as And do you fear, in all the live recordings I've heard (YouTube, primarily) the line is And do you care.
