After the Gold Rush (Live Version) Lyrics

After The Gold Rush (Live) - Natalie Merchant

Written by:Neil Young

Well I dreamed I saw the knights

In armor come

 

Saying 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

 

That was floating on the breeze

 

Look at mother nature on the run

 

In the nineteen seventies

 

Look at mother nature on the run

 

In the nineteen seventies

 

I was lying in a burned out basement

 

With the full moon in my eyes

 

Hoping for replacement

 

When the sun burst thought the sky

 

There was a band playing in my head

 

And I felt like getting high

 

Thinking about what a

Friend had said

 

And hoping it was a lie

 

Thinking about what a

Friend had said

 

I was hoping it was a lie

 

Well I dreamed I saw the silver

 

Space ships come

 

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
