Revolution Blues

by Neil Young

well we live in a trailer
at the edge of town
you never see us
’cause we don’t come around
we got 25 little rifles
just to keep the population down
but we need you now
that’s why i’m hanging ’round

so you be good to me
and i’ll be good to you
and in this land of conditions
i m not above suspicion
i won’t attack you
but i won’t back you, yeah

well, it’s good to be here
asleep on your lawn
remember your guard dog
well, i’m afraid that he’s gone
it was such a drag to hear him
whinning all night long
(howl)

yes, that was me
with the doves setting them free
near the factory
where you build your computer love

i hope you get the connection
’cause i can take the rejection
i won’t believe you, yeah
i just don’t believe you, yeah

well, i’m a barrel of laughs with
my carbine on
i keep ’em hoppin’ till my ammunition’s is gone
but i’m still not happy
i feel like there’s something wrong

i got the revolution blues
i see bloody fountains
and 10 million dune buggies
comin’ down the mountains
well, i hear that Laurel Canyon
is full of famous stars
but i hate them worse than lepers
and i’ll kill them in their cars

ah, you sucker
well, you sucker
did you fuck her
your the sucker
your the sucker
let you fuck her
let you fuck her
and now your the sucker
