He recorded it later ('70 or '71) with CSNY and his voice is really sweet in their version, but it's so slow-moving and quiet, I couldn't get into it as much as listening to Grace sing it. I like how he did it here with Jeff Pevar & James Raymond, for something different:

Lyrics:

You want to know how it will be -
Me and him, or you and me.
You both stand there, your long hair flowing,
Eyes alive, your mind still growing,
Saying to me,
"What can we do now that we both love you?"
I love you, too.
I don't really see - why can't we go on as three?

You are afraid - embarrassed, too.
No one has ever said such a thing to you.
Your mother's ghost stands at your shoulder,
Face like ice, a little bit colder,
Saying to you,
"You can not do that, it breaks all the rules...
you learned in school."
I don't really see - why can't we go on as three?

We love each other. It's plain to see.
There's just one answer that comes to me -
Sister-lovers, water-brothers,
And in time, maybe others.
So you see,
what we can do is to try something new -
If you're crazy too.
I don't really see - why can't we go on as three?
