Hard Luck Stories – Neil Young

Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine
Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine.

Every time you’re feelin’ fine
Got another good one on the line
It slips away,
You feel it slip away, slip away.

I don’t want no more from you
Won’t do what you want me to
Turn me loose
Come on turn me loose,
turn me loose.

Every time I’m feelin’ good
The phone rings
and I knock on wood
Hoping that it won’t be you
Calling like you always do.

All you ever seem to say is
How much bad luck came your way
You won’t try to start again
You just count
on your old friends.

Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine
Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine.

Now you call up every day
Got no money no place to stay
That girl made a mess of you
You got what was comin’ too.

Build her up and let her down
Tastin’ everythin’ in town
Treat her right, you never
Treat her right, treat her right.

Now she’s gone and you’re alone
Bite your fingers to the bone
Slip away,
You feel it slip away, slip away.

You don’t know what’s goin’ on
How you lost it, what went wrong
What ever happened to
The love that you once knew.

Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine
Don’t tell me hard luck stories
And I won’t tell you mine.

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.
