Rogue Wave cover Neil Young's "Birds"

When I posted the new Rogue Wave video at the beginning of the summer, a reader posted a comment looking for Rogue Wave's cover of the 1970 Neil Young song "Birds" that they'd just covered at the Fillmore in San Francisco. Intriguing.

Well, after months of fruitless searching, I finally was pointed in the direction of a superb-quality acoustic version from FNX Radio in Boston. Warm, sparkling, and heartfelt:

When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over

Birds (Neil Young cover) - Rogue Wave
