Agree with Medoras, possibly their greatest album and this song a favourite.

Nice lyrics especially for that time period.  Few of us had the opportunity to Look for America so Simon/Garfunkel did it for us.

One of many brilliant songs from Bookends, which is quite possibly Simon & Garfunkel's best and most underrated album.

Also looking for America, at about the same time:

On the road...get on the road. With clear eyes and open mind and heart. 

We should all be so lucky.

Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one my raincoat.
We smoked the last one an hour ago!
So we bought some more cigarettes.
Then we smoked all those cigarettes,
And walked off to look for some cigarettes...

Agreed, and no doubt one of Paul's best compositions. 

Kind of makes me think....some generations were the 'greatest' and sacrificed to give their descendants a better life...and another generation felt lost & alone and went out to find themselves...and another expects everything to be handed to them for free.

....maybe not quite right but it seems that way sometimes...

This line and image was my inspiration to later write a song about a woman I sat next to on a bus.  Such inspirational music!

An effing masterpiece.  "And the moon rose over an open field..."  I saw it in my mind the first time I heard it.  That is the sign of a truly great song.

My brother left this album at home after he went off to Vietnam and it sort of became my first album.  I can't even objectively rate this song so great was its and every other song on the album's influence on everything I heard after.  I'd like to think much of my musical taste can be traced back to this album, though I'm not sure how that accounts for all the shitty music I bought in the 70s.

I love the Yes version, too, but I think the opposite case works better: the Yes version makes sense only as an arrangement of S&G's original. Like a jazz master bending a song to the edge of becoming unrecognizable, I think Yes was making a compliment to the original song by doing something other than a slavish cover. Both versions are beautiful, at least to me, but they're very different kinds of beauty.
