The artist looked at the producer, the producer sat back He said "what we have got here is a perfect track But we don't have a vocal and we don't have a song If we could get these things accomplished nothing else could go wrong" So he balanced the ashtray as he picked up the phone And said "send me a songwriter who's drifted far from home And make sure that he's hungry and make sure he's alone Send me a cheeseburger and a new 'rolling stone' Yeah "There's still crime in the city", said the cop on the beat "I don't know if i can stop it, I feel like meat on the street They paint my car like a target, I take my orders from fools Meanwhile some kid blows my head off well I play by their rules That's why I'm doin' it my way I took the law in my own hand So here i am in the alleyway a wad of cash in my pants I get paid by a ten year old he says he looks up to me There's still crime in the city but it's good to be free Yeah Well I come from a family that has a broken home Sometimes I talk to daddy on the telephone When he says that he loves me i know that he does But I wish I could see him I wish I knew where he was But that's the way all my friends are except maybe one or two Wish I could see him this weekend wish I could walk in his shoes But now I'm doing my own thing wometimes I'm good then I'm bad Although my home has been broken it's the best home I ever had Yeah Well I keep getting younger my life's been funny that way Before I ever learned to talk I forgot what to say I sassed back to my mom I sassed back at my teacher I got thrown out of bible school for sassing back at the preacher Then I grew up to be a fireman put every fire in town Put out anything smokin' but when I put the hose down The judge sent me to prison gave me life without parole Wish I never put the hose down wish I never got old notes: _we_KNOW_ it's redundant to add in the additional Am chord, but listen to the song to get what we mean - change from Am to F (or Dm, G or whatever the chord change is) over the space of three stokes E.G 002210 000010 x33211 Don't Cry : Freedom :Neil Young power chord from low E to e EDon't cry Emy sweet girl Enothin' I say is Ewritten in Estone Don't cry my sweet love you won't really be alone Woa ah I'll help you pack your things I'll walk with you out to the car I'll hold on to the ring I won't forget the way things are GWoa ah my sweet Elove Your disappointed eyes are haunting my like my big lies I see you glaring now I see you staring in the fire Woa ah my sweet love Don't cry my sweet girl nothin' I say is written in stone Don't cry my sweet love you won't really be alone Woa ah My sweet love my sweet love Ahhh Don't cry my sweet girl you won't really be alone Don't cry my sweet girl you won't really be alone Don't cry my sweet girl you won't really be alone Hangin' on a Limb : Freedom : Neil Young

Though the river flows gently to the sea He was on the shore rooted like tree She was here and there riding on the waves Through it all she heard his call And gave it all she gave CABnd though their love was hangin' on a limb She taught him how to dance and start again And though their love was hangin' on a limb She taught him how to dance When the melody through the window called It echoed in the courtyard and whispered in the halls He played it through the night she knew he had to go There was something about freedom he thought he didn't know
