Falling From Above
Neil Young & Crazy Horse Lyrics


Grandpa said to cousin Jed
Sittin' on the porch,
"I won't retire
But I might retread."

"Seem like that guy singin' this song
Been doing it for a long time.
Is there anything he knows
That he ain't said?"

Sing a song for Freedom.
Sing a song for Love.
Sing a song for depressed angels
Falling from above.

Grandpa held the paper
Pretending he could see.
But he couldn't read
Without his glasses on.

"How can all those people
Afford so many things?
When I was young people wore
What they had on."

Mamma said, "A little love and affection
In everything you do
Will make the world a better place
With or without you."

A little love and affection
In everything you do
A better place
With or without you.

Slamming down a late night shot,
The Hero and the artist compared
Goals and visions and afterthoughts
For the twenty first century.

But mostly came up with nothing,
So the truth was never learned.
And the human race just
Kept rollin' on.

Rollin' through the fighting,
Rollin' through the religious wars,
Rollin' down the temple walls
And the churches' exposed sores.

Rollin' through the fighting.
Through religious wars.
Mostly came up with nothin'...

"Grandpa here's your glasses,
You'll see much better now,"
Said that young girl
Of Edith and Earl's.

But Grandpa just kept starin'
He was lost in some distant thought
Then he turned and he said
To that young girl...

"A little love and affection
In everything you do,
Will make the world a better place
With or without you."

With or without you.
A better place...
With or without you.
With or without you.

Hear that rooster crowin'
Down on the Double E.
It's a new morning
Dawning on the green.

Bouncing off the towers,
The sun's heading down to the streets.
The business meeting
Window shades are drawn.

Another morning edition
Is headed for the porch,
Because Grandma puts down the paper
Before Grandpa raises his fork.

A little love and affection
In every thing you do,
With or without you...
Hear the rooster crowing
Down on the Double E...

@Sir Barnaby St.John Toffington Thank you for the title, G D Am7
Locked out in goddamn lockdown
Keys inside I'm sleeping on the ground
Locked out in goddamn lockdown
Stars are nice but my smile is a frown

Played round a fire for a small crowd
Girl said boy I can help you get found
Now I'm outside in a Carolina town
Locked out in goddamn lockdown

My socks are wet and my feet are cold
I just wrote the moon would never get old
Now I'm feeling my temperature drown
Locked out in goddamn lockdown

I didn't get no sleep all night
Im getting hungry but I'll be alright
Sit here waiting for the morning light
Locked out in goddamn lockdown

Locked out in goddamn lockdown
Locked out in goddamn lockdown
Locked out in goddamn lockdown
Locked out in goddamn lockdown

My husband was a huge Neil Young fan. He was obsessed with the Greendale show and music. He probably saw the show at least 6 times in whatever city Neil was playing within a six hour or more drive and I went with him to most of them. I lost him to leukemia in February 2011. I haven't heard this song in a long time, it brings back memories. I can hear my husband singing along with Neil. Love you and miss you Pat.
