Driftin' Back
Neil Young & Crazy Horse Lyrics


Hey now now, hey now now
I'm driftin' back
Hey now now, hey now now
I'm driftin' back

Dreaming about the way things sound now
Write about them in my book
Worry that you can't hear me now
And feel the time I took

To help you feel this feeling
Let you ride along
Dreaming about the way you feel now
When you hear my song

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

In my meditation I block out all my thoughts
When they come back I push them out
Like Jesus had a rock

They pushed in front of this cave now
They rolled across the ground
Hey now now, hey now now
They rolled across the ground

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

Here's how I got my mantra
Gave them thirty five bucks now
Gave it to the Maharishi
It went to the organization

Excuse my religion
Dreaming ‘bout the way things feel now
Write it in my book
Blocking out all the thoughts now

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

Hey now now, hey now now
I'm driftin' back
Hey now now, hey now now
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

I used to dig Picasso I used to dig Picasso
Hey now now, hey now now I used to dig Picasso
Then the big tech giant came along
And turned him into wallpaper
Hey now now, hey now now I used to dig Picasso

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

Don't want my mp3
Don't want my mp3

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

When you hear my song now
You only get five percent
You used to get it all
You used to get it all

Blocking out my anger
Blocking out my thoughts
Blocking out my anger now
Blocking out my thoughts

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

Gonna get me a hip hop haircut
Gonna get a hip hop haircut
Gonna get a hip hop haircut
Hey now now, hey now now
Hey now now, hey now now
Blocking out my anger
Finding my religion
I might be a pagan

I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back
I'm driftin' back

Drifting' back

Hey now now, hey now now

I'm driftin' back

Hey now now, hey now now

I'm driftin' back

Dreaming about the way things sound now

Write about them in my book

Worry that you can't hear me now

And feel the time I took

To help you feel this feeling

Let you ride along

Dreaming about the way you feel now

When you hear my song

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

In my meditation

I block out all my thoughts

When they come back I push them out

Like Jesus had a rock

They pushed in front of this cave now

They rolled across the ground

Hey now now, hey now now

They rolled across the ground

I'm driftin' back

I'm driftin' back

Thanks Neil for the wonderful ballads , country, rocking and rolling you did over the years. One of my favorites. Loved you with Crazy Horse and CSNY. You rock.

Sean Moyer

You have inspired my own musical endeavors.

I have always wondered what would happen if you and Brother Bob Dylan did a duet together. Has it ever crossed your mind Brother Neil?

asharn. y. gee

Neil you're amazing your music shaped my life from age of 10

Neil doesn't talk to fans, this is not Neil. And he's selling something.

P Turner

This might be your best music ever, I hate what the music industry has done to sound quality too, I hope to see you on tour again
