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.

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

Scenery – Neil Young

Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you
Sometimes they worship you
Sometimes they
tear your houses down
Sometimes they comfort you
Sometimes they
spread your life around

Nothing you can see
That they
won’t try to give you
Land of the free
Where the legend
will outlive you
When you earn their trust
When you are truly in danger
Where greed and lust
Have never been a stranger

[solo]

Home of the brave
That’s where
heroes need protection
Media image slaves
Live by random selection
You sell your heart
But that’s not
the price of freedom
Where things are useful
Only when you need them

Where will you go
When you need
to make some changes
Who will you love
In a world
of constant strangers
I’ll go with you
If you want
to take a hero home
I’ll stay behind
If you want
to take a hero home

Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you

[solo]

Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
