Year Of The Horse – The Loner – Threadgill’s – Austin Texas – 053112

Neil Young tribute band, Year Of The Horse, plays “The Loner” live at Threadgill’s Restaurant in Austin, Texas on May 31, 2012.

THE LONER by Neil Young

He’s a perfect stranger,
Like a cross of himself
and a fox.

He’s a feeling arranger
And a changer of
the ways he talks.

He’s the unforeseen danger
The keeper of the key
to the locks.

Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.
Step aside,
open wide,
It’s the loner.

If you see him in the subway,
He’ll be down at the end of the car.

Watching you move
Until he knows he
knows who you are.

When you get off at your station alone,
He’ll know that you are.
Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.

Step aside, open wide,
It’s the loner.

There was a woman he knew
About a year or so ago.

She had something that he needed
And he pleaded with her not to go.

On the day that she left,
He died, but it did not show.

Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.
Step aside, open wide,
It’s the loner.

Year Of The Horse – Cortez The Killer – Threadgill’s – Austin Texas – 053112

Neil Young tribute band, Year Of The Horse, plays “Cortez The Killer” live at Threadgill’s Restaurant in Austin, Texas on May 31, 2012.

CORTEZ THE KILLER by Neil Young

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects
gathered ’round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them to the flatlands
And they died along the way
But they built up with their bare hands
What we still can’t do today.

And I know she’s living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can’t remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer.

Neil Young tribute band, Year of the Horse, play “Roll Another Number” live at Antone’s in Austin, Texas on May 12, 2012.

“Roll Another Number (For The Road)”

It’s too dark
to put the keys
in my ignition,
And the mornin’ sun is yet
to climb my hood ornament.
But before too long I might
see those flashing red lights
Look out, mama,
’cause I’m comin’ home tonight.

Think I’ll
roll another number
for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.
Though my feet
aren’t on the ground,
I been standin’ on the sound
Of some open-hearted people
goin’ down.

I’m not goin’ back
to Woodstock for a while,
Though I long to hear
that lonesome hippie smile.
I’m a million miles away
from that helicopter day
No, I don’t believe
I’ll be goin’ back that way.

Think I’ll
roll another number
for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.
Though my feet
aren’t on the ground,
I been standin’ on the sound
Of some open-hearted people
goin’ down.

“Don’t Cry No Tears”

Don’t cry no tears around me
Don’t cry no tears around me
‘Cause when all the water’s gone
The feeling lingers on
Old true love
ain’t too hard to see
Don’t cry no tears around me.

Well I wonder
who’s with her tonight?
And I wonder
who’s holding her tight?
But there’s nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love
ain’t too hard to see
Don’t cry no tears around me.

There’s nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love
ain’t too hard to see
Don’t cry no tears around me
Don’t cry no tears around me.

By Don Harris/Terry Dewey

Farmer John
I’m in love with your daughter
Yeah the one
With the champagne eyes

I love the way she walks
I love the way she talks
I love the way she wiggles
She wiggles and she walks

Farmer John
I’m in love with your daughter
Yeah the one
With the champagne eyes

I love the way she walks
I love the way she talks
I love the way she moves
She moves, moves

Farmer John
I’m in love with your daughter

Farmer John
I’m in love with your daughter
Yeah the one
With the champagne eyes

I love the way she walks
I love the way she talks
I love the way she moves
She moves, she moves, moves

Farmer John

Neil Young tribute band, Year of the Horse, play “Cinnamon Girl” and “Down By The River,” back to back, live at Antone’s in Austin, Texas on May 12, 2012.

“Cinnamon Girl”

I wanna live
with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy
the rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl.

A dreamer of pictures
I run in the night
You see us together,
chasing the moonlight,
My cinnamon girl.

Ten silver saxes,
a bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes
and waits between shows
For his cinnamon girl.

A dreamer of pictures
I run in the night
You see us together,
chasing the moonlight,
My cinnamon girl.

Pa sent me money now
I’m gonna make it somehow
I need another chance
You see your baby loves to dance
Yeah…yeah…yeah.

——————————————————————————-

“Down By The River”

Be on my side,
I’ll be on your side,
baby
There is no reason
for you to hide
It’s so hard for me
staying here all alone
When you could be
taking me for a ride.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.

You take my hand,
I’ll take your hand
Together we may get away
This much madness
is too much sorrow
It’s impossible
to make it today.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.

Be on my side,
I’ll be on your side,
baby
There is no reason
for you to hide
It’s so hard for me
staying here all alone
When you could be
taking me for a ride.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.

Neil Young tribute band, Year of the Horse, play “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” live at Antone’s in Austin, Texas on May 12, 2012.

“Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere”

I think I’d like to go
back home
And take it easy
There’s a woman that
I’d like to get to know
Living there

Everybody seems to wonder
What it’s like down here
I gotta get away
from this day-to-day
running around,
Everybody knows
this is nowhere.

Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows.

Every time I think about
back home
It’s cool and breezy
I wish that I could be there
right now
Just passing time.

Everybody seems to wonder
What it’s like down here
I gotta get away
from this day-to-day
running around,
Everybody knows
this is nowhere.

Everybody, everybody knows
Everybody knows.

Year of the Horse – Barstool Blues – Antone’s – Austin Texas – 051212

Neil Young tribute band, Year of the Horse, play “Barstool Blues” live at Antone’s in Austin, Texas on May 12, 2012.

“Barstool Blues”

If I could hold on
to just one thought
For long enough to know
Why my mind is moving so fast
And the conversation is slow.
Burn off all the fog
And let the sun
through to the snow
Let me see your face again
Before I have to go.

I have seen you in the movies
And in those magazines at night
I saw you on the barstool when
You held that glass so tight.
And I saw you in my nightmares
But I’ll see you in my dreams
And I might live a thousand years
Before I know what that means.

Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths
His life was filled with parasites
And countless idle threats.
He trusted in a woman
And on her he made his bets
Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths.

Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.
Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.

Walk on, talk on,
baby tell no lies.
Don’t you be caught
with a tear in your eye.

Sure enough,
they’ll be sellin’ stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when
you’re dealin’ with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.
Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.

Snake eyes, French fries
and I got lots of gas.
Full moon and a jumpin’ tune,
now you don’t have to ask.

Sure enough,
they’ll be sellin’ stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when
you’re dealin’ with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.
Come on, baby, let’s go downtown,
Let’s go, let’s go,
let’s go downtown.

Walk on, talk on,
baby tell no lies.
Don’t you be caught
with a tear in your eye.

Sure enough,
they’ll be sellin’ stuff
When the moon begins to rise.
Pretty bad when
you’re dealin’ with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.

Pretty bad when
you’re dealin’ with the man,
And the light shines in your eyes.
