Linda Ronstadt - After the Gold Rush

rate me

written by Neil Young

© 1970 Cotillion Music / Broken Arrow Music (BMI)

Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming

Sayin' something about a queen

There were peasants singing and drummers drumming

And the archer split the tree

There was a fanfare blowing to the sun

There was floating on the breeze

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the Twentieth Century

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the Twentieth Century

I was lying in a burned out basement

With the full moon in my eyes

I was hoping for replacement

When the sun burst through the sky

There was a band playing in my head

And I felt like I could cry

I was thinking about what a friend had said

I was hoping it was a lie

Thinking about what a friend had said

I was hoping it was a lie

I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying

In the yellow haze of the sun

There were children crying and colors flying

All around the chosen ones

All in a dream, all in a dream

The loading had begun

Flying Mother Nature's silver seed

To a new home in the sun

Flying Mother Nature's silver seed

To a new home
