Rapunzel Lyr Req: Wrecking Ball (Neil Young) (10) RE: Lyr Req: Wrecking Ball (Neil Young) 23 Mar 08

I've always loved this song and have been singing it occasionally at folk clubs/singarounds for many years now. I'd always understood Wrecking Ball to mean if they go ahead and meet (wherever) it will wreck everything - this is a song about two people who ought not to be having this affair and there is doubt as to whether she will turn up and risk everything anyway.

Could be totally off the mark, but that's the way I've always read it.
