Don’t Be Denied – Neil Young

When I was a young boy,
My mama said to me
Your daddy’s leavin’ home today,
I think he’s gone to stay.
We packed up all our bags
And drove out to Winnipeg.

When we got to Winnipeg
I checked in to school.
I wore white bucks on my feet,
When I learned the golden rule.
The punches came fast and hard
Lying on my back
in the school yard.

Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.

Well pretty soon I met a friend,
He played guitar.
We used to sit
on the steps at school
And dream of being stars.
We started a band,
We played all night.

Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.

Oh Canada
We played all night
I really hate to leave you now
But to stay just wouldn’t be right.
Down in Hollywood
We played so good

The businessmen crowded around
They came to hear the golden sound
There we were on the Sunset Strip,
Playing our songs
for the highest bid.
We played all night
The price was right.

Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied.

Well, all that glitters isn’t gold
I know you’ve heard
that story told.
And I’m a pauper
in a naked disguise
A millionaire
through a business man’s eyes.
Oh friend of mine
Don’t be denied.

This Land Is Your Land – Neil Young

[Chorus:]
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

[Chorus]

I’ve roamed and rambled and I’ve followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

[Chorus]

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

[Chorus]

As I was walkin’ – I saw a sign there
And that sign said – no tress passin’
But on the other side… it didn’t say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

[Chorus]

In the squares of the city – In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office – I see my people
And some are grumblin’ and some are wonderin’
If this land’s still made for you and me.

[Chorus 2x]

Peace Trail – Neil Young

[Verse 1]
Up in the rainbow, teepee sky
No one’s looking down on you or I
That’s just a mirror in your eye
Ain’t taken my last hit yet
I know that things are different now
(I see the same old signs
But something new is growing)
Don’t think I’ll cash it in yet
Don’t think I’ll put down my last bet
(I’m gonna keep my hand in
Because something new is growing)

[Chorus 1]
Think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
Take a trip back home to my old town
‘Cause everyone back there says
Something new is growing

[Verse 2]
Up in the rainbow, teepee sky
No one’s looking down on you or I
It’s just a mirror in our eye
If I believe in someone
I have to believe in myself
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
The world is full of changes
Sometimes all these changes make me sad
(But I keep planting seeds
Till something new is growing)

[Chorus 2]
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I know that treasure takes its time
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I think I like my chances now
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail now
Because something new is growing

Needle and the Damage Done – Neil Young

I caught you knockin’
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don’t understand
Milk-blood
to keep from running out.

I’ve seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie’s
like a settin’ sun.
