The night turned black and the air turned cold I could feel it in my breath and down my bones The roads looked like cars were extinct And the only meat her were the hookers on the beat But as I wandered through this urban graveyard I was kickin' up leaves like a frustrated schoolboy But I never noticed that house upon that hill, before Under the lamplight so tall The gate for the garden, it was missin' They must not think must for security But mind you by the size of those brambles Intruders that probably come, probably scramble But I find a rusty old pair of shears They must have been a bastard in their day So I cut and cut and cut, so it was the door I could see And not these dead flowers now lookin' at me The telephone box that let out a lonely need cry I picked it up and said hello But at the other end of the line, a voice I had never heard so low Warned me that it was haunted and that I should go Enter now if you must This house is haunted with the verglas dust The myth of number eight is written here in stone Enter in a group or alone The night turned black and the air turned cold I could feel it in my breath and down my bones The dust was bitten once again And this is where the story ends

Behind The Song: Stephen Stills, “Treetop Flyer”

by Rick Moore July 24, 2020, 10:00 am 1 Comment

Stephen Stills is a great electric guitar soloist, a formidable multi-instrumentalist, and an instantly-recognizable singer who was lucky enough to run into a couple of guys named Crosby and Nash back in the ‘60s. But those in the know are also aware of what an outstanding writer and acoustic guitarist he is as well.

Videos by American Songwriter

“Treetop Flyer” is the excellent classic track from his 1991 Stills Alone album, a recording of nearly all unaccompanied mostly-original acoustic songs. The album got mixed reviews, many from people who (understandably) took issue with the processed sound of Stills’ Martin guitar. But a great song is a great song, and “Treetop Flyer” is one of Stills’ finest. It’s the story of a Vietnam vet who came home from the war with a marketable new skill: the ability to fly under the radar. When these pilots returned from combat to a public that often shunned them, and wouldn’t give them a job or help them deal with what they’d been through, they found a way to make money with this skill in running drugs, guns, and whatever other contraband someone would pay them to deliver.

Stills sings in the first person for this song’s six verses – no chorus, no bridge – and really sounds like he is the “Treetop Flyer,” or as if he definitely knows someone who was. This song has conflict, greed, danger, and a romantic relationship – all the pieces that make a song important and memorable. At least one troubadour of the current generation was so influenced by this song that he decided to make music his career. Ray LaMontagne credits Stills’ song with prompting him to make the decision that his life would be music and nothing else. “It was ‘Treetop Flyer’ off a solo record that Stills had done, which really knocked me out,” LaMontagne told National Public Radio’s Scott Simon in 2006.

Stills Alone

Stills Alone is out of print, and it’ll cost you a pretty penny to find a copy. And don’t look for it on Spotify either – for some reason probably related to licensing issues, it’s not there. You can hear the original version of “Treetop Flyer” on YouTube, though. And you can find Just Roll Tape , an album of Stills demos that contains an early version of the song, on Spotify. On Just Roll Tape , Stills sings, “I’ll fly whiskey for you, I’ll fly guns” in the second verse, but he later changed that line to “I’ll fly any cargo that you can pay to run” in what would become the definitive version. In a catalog filled with songs that defined the sound of a generation, “Treetop Flyer” stands out as one of Stills’ best pieces of work. He still sometimes performs this song live with his band The Rides, with guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

A word of caution if you decide you want to learn how to play this song. Before you drive yourself nuts trying to figure it out: Stills’ guitar is tuned to the DADGAD tuning, sometimes known as Celtic tuning or Bensusan (as in Pierre Bensusan) tuning. And beware of lyric sites that say the words in the fifth verse are “I get the shit down, I tie it fast” – Stills is really singing “ship,” not “shit.”

About treetop flyers.

Formed in 2009 by a group of friends who met through playing in various bands in and around London, Treetop Flyers' brand of folk-rock won them the Glastonbury Festival emerging talent competition in 2011. The result was a slot on the main stage that year, where they performed a set that included tracks from their 2009 debut EP To Bury the Past. Having played live alongside the likes of the Lumineers, the band was snapped up by Loose Music (U.K.) and Partisan (U.S.A.) for the release of debut album Mountain Moves, which was produced by Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, Adam Green) in America and released in the spring of 2013. ~ Daniel Clancy
