After The Gold Rush

by Neil Young

 

Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armor comin'

Sayin' something about a queen

There were peasants singin' and drummers drummin'

And the archer split the tree

There was a fanfare blowin' to the sun

That was floating on the breeze

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the 1970s

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the 1970s

 

I was lyin' in a burned out basement

With the full moon in my eyes

I was hopin' for replacement

When the sun burst though the sky

There was a band playin' in my head

And I felt like getting high

I was thinkin' about what a friend had said

I was hopin' it was a lie

Thinkin' about what a friend had said

I was hopin' it was a lie

 

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver space ships flyin'

In the yellow haze of the sun

There were children cryin' and colors flyin'

All around the chosen ones

All in a dream, all in a dream

The loadin' 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


After the Gold Rush with lyrics - Neil Young

 

この曲を、リンダ・ロンシュタッド(Linda Ronstadt)、エミルー・ハリス(Emmylou Harris)、ドリー・パートン(Dolly Parton)がトリオを組んだ、1999年の2枚目のアルバム『Trio2』でカバーしました。さすがベテラン、文句なしでしょう。
