Neil Young wrote this song on a beach in Spain (or so he says during an early Massey Hall concert). At the time, the beaches in Spain were well known as a hang-out for “ladies of the night”. It seems the young woman he wrote about had agreed to a temporary thing with. She is like magic, and unusual – a free spirit. “Old enough to change your name” means she is old enough to either have a stripper name, or to get married – that part is unclear, but she is young and elusive. Many want to be with her and she floats through relationships, softly and plays at love this way. This is “Cowgirl In The Sand”.
