How Have You Been

by John Sebastian

Performed by Crosby, Stills, & Nash

on "Nintendo: White Knuckle Scorin' "

1991

And how have you been, my darling children

While I have been away in the west

Though you are strangers I feel like I know you

By the way that you treat me and offer to feed me

And eagerly ask if I´ll stay for a rest

And sit yourself down in a pile here before me

I wish I had presents for each of your smiles

But I have been travelling with not much to carry

Just a broken guitar case with tape on the sides

To hold up a few signs to help me get rides

And here is a strange European guitar string

I found on the floor of a club in Marseilles

It´s fat for the third string and skinny for the fourth string

But I kept it in hopes that I´d need it some day

It´s funny how people just do things that way

And here is a turtle from the Long Island Expressway

He says that his home has been covered with tar

So I gave him a ride on the back of my suitcase

And he says that he´d wants to live here in your yard

At long last his life won´t be quite so hard

And how have you been, my darling children

While I have been away in the west

Though you are strangers I feel like I know you

By the way that you treat me and offer to feed me

And eagerly ask if I´ll stay for a rest

And how have you been, my darling children
