God bless him


Fork in The Road

Got a pot belly,
It's not too big
Gets in my way
When I'm driving my rig

Driving this country
In a big old rig
Things I've seen
Mean a lot

Friend has a pickup
Drives his kid to school
Then he takes his wife
To beauty school

Now she's doin' nails
Gonna get a job
Got a good teacher

There's a fork in the road ahead
I don't which way I'm gonna turn
There's a fork in the road ahead

About this year
We salute the troops
They're all still there
In a fucking war
It's no good
Whose idea was that?

I've got hope
But you can't eat hope
I'm not done
Not giving up
Not cashing in
Too late

There's a bailout coming but it's not for me
It's for all those creeps watching tickers on TV
There's a bailout coming but it's not for me

I'm a big rock star
My sales have tanked
But I still got you
Thanks

Sounds like shit

Keep on bloggin'
'Til the power goes out
Your battery's dead
Twist and shout

On the radio
Those were the days
Bring 'em back

There's a bailout coming but it's not for you
It's for all those creeps hiding what they do
There's a bailout coming but it's not for you
Bailout coming but it's not for you

Got my flat screen
Got it repo'd now
They picked it up
Left a hole in the wall
Last Saturday
Missed the Raiders game

There's a bailout coming but it's not for you
There's a bailout coming but it's not for you
It's for all those creeps hiding what they do

Dang Neil, we are both getting old. What has not changed is my appreciation for your insightful music addressing some of the social issues of our time. You have put smile on this middle-aged man's face.

Current bailout boondoggle effort has thrown $8.7 T towards keeping afloat the Banksters & Wall St. Crooks who could not properly assess the RISKS structured in OTC Derivatives. Instead of insuring against financial erosion, their derrivatives are the cause of this FISCAL CRISIS, a BLACK SWAN.

btw, this song is more relevant than anything anyone is writing these days. Neil Young is a great artist, and one of the only artists willing to be real, and not some cookie-cutter for the record industry, afraid to make a statement.

Every "reviewer" who has trashed Neil on this song has not offered even a simple critical reason for not liking it, or any kind of dissemination. Just, "it sucks, blah!" These people have zero critical thinking skills, only bloated egos.

Whatever,
Neil Young can suck my dick until his lips fall off.

This song sucks because the melody is completely unremarkable. Is my ego unbloated now?

The lyrics would make a great Op-Ed piece in the New York Times. I love, love, love Neil Young. I loved Living With War. I thought the songs were great. This one, not so much.

The thing I like the best is that Neil could give a flying fuck whether anyone thinks it sucks, he sucks etc....

I love Neil Young

Has anyone else paid attention to the recent developments in the Archives, Vol 1? It really looks like its finally coming out this year (yes, people have been saying that for years, but I believe Neil this time).

I never said Neil sucks, just the song.

Whenever I hear/see this project mentioned I think of Linus in the Charlie Brown special, waiting in the field for the Great Pumpkin.

Merle Haggard, why do you hate America?

Worth it just for the super-stupid video including the hat and t-shirt. And he's about the only musician that mixes music and politics that I don't want to gag most of the time.

They can't all be winners but even his losers have something to offer.

Merle has given up weed! Pray for him
