As Morrison biographer Ritchie Yorke described it, the song remembered "how it was when you were a kid and just got stoned from nature and you didn't need anything else". I suppose I was about 12 years old. We used to go to a place called Ballystockart to fish. We stopped in the village on the way up to this place and I went to this little stone house, and there was an old man there with dark weather-beaten skin, and we asked him if he had any water.
He gave us some water which he said he'd got from the stream. We drank some and everything seemed to stop for me. Select albums in the Format field. Select Gold in the Certification field.

Morrison seemed to have aged quite a bit by He began writing and producing everything himself, relying heavily on song structure instead of the jams of Astral Weeks.
His Band and The Street Choir is a confident step in the same direction as Moondance , but Morrison loosens up his grip to create a freer, more organic record — even leaving in some of the studio chatter.
