I was so young when I was born
My eyes could not yet see
And by the time of my first dawn
Somebody holding me . . . they said

I welcome you to Crackerbox Palace
We've been expecting you
You bring such joy in Crackerbox Palace
No matter where you...

    My interpretation is that, viewing the other interpretations, no one really knows what it means except George himself. Probably a good dope song...
    everybody will hear something different.

    The Lord is always with us. We don't know this till .We live An look for him .After we live in this life a while.Unless you look you will never see him.But never the less he's still with us.George is genus trying to help those looking .In his songs!!!

    Lord Buckley was strictly American - there was nothing English about him or his life.

    I think its a song about Saltine Cracker houses. Sooner or later.it rains and no more home. Just a pile of mush.

    When George Harrison was young, his favorite comedian was an eccentric English-American fellow who called himself Lord Buckley.

    Years after Buckley's death, George Harrison literally did meet a man named George Grief (pronounced "gryfe"), who had been Lord Buckley's manager. When Harrison told Grief what a big fan he'd been, Grief took him to see Buckley's old house, a house he called "Crackerbox Palace."

    George Harrison wrote the whimsical, silly song "Crackerbox Palace" in honor of Lord Buckley. He even mentions "Mr. Grief" in the lyrics.

    At the end of the song, when George Harrison sins "Know that the Lord is well and inside of you," many people think GEorge is singing about God being inside each and every one of us. Rather, he's saying that, somewhere, the late Lord Buckley is happy in a new, Heavenly Crackerbox Palace.
