As per a youtube poster:

 

"One of the most autobiographical songs to stem from the diaspora of CSN&Y, David Crosby's "Cowboy Movie" is the actual story of the (temporary) 1970 breakup of that very group. The individual members are all given aliases: Stephen Stills is Eli ("our fastest gunner/kinda mean & young, from the South"). Graham Nash is The Duke ("our dynamiter"), Neil Young is Young Billy, who has an almost psychic ability to predict trouble, and Crosby himself is Fat Albert, who becomes an interested and interesting bystander. The other main character is Raven, who represents Rita Coolidge, who in real life had affairs with Stills first, then Nash. This in itself caused the ill-feelings between Nash and Stills at the time, and caused the temporary fraction in the band. Raven is also referred to as "The Law" -- but not in the legal sense, as Crosby explained in Dave Zimmer's Crosby, Stills & Nash, but the "law of averages of nature." All of this combines, as Zimmer relates, to create a "colorful look at human nature," and succeeds admirably. Musically, this lengthy cut is similar in structure to CSN&Y songs such as "Down by the River" and "Deja Vú." The fabulous electric guitar exchange between Young and Jerry Garcia is riveting, as is the rhythm section, which is provided by members of the Grateful Dead. All in all, one of the standouts on Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name, and it is historical as much it still remains as a stone groove."--Matthew Greenwald

Magnificent imo

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because the lyrics of Orleans are all names of places in France, there is no translation

The lyrics are:

Orleans
Beaugency
Notre Dame de Clery
Vendome
Vendome

Orleans
Beaugency
Notre Dame de Clery
Vendome
Vendome

 

"Notre Dame de Clery" translates to "Our Lady of Clery". But the other lyrics are all proper names, so they remain the same in English
