AFTER THE GOLD RUSH

Neil Young


Well I [
D] dreamed I saw the nights in [G] armor coming,
Sayin' [
D] something about a [G] queen.
There were [
D] peasants singin' and [A] drummers drummin'
And the [
G] archer split the [A] tree.
There was a [
Bm] fanfare blowin' [C] to the sun,
That was [
G] floating on the [C] breeze.
[
D] Look at Mother Nature [A] on the run, in the [C] nineteen seven-[G]-ties.
[
D] Look at Mother Nature [A] on the run, in the [C] nineteen seven-[G]-ties.

I was [
D] lyin' in a burned out [G] basement,
With the [
D] full moon in my [G] eyes.
I was [
D] hopin' for a re-[A]-placement,
When the [
G] sun burst through the [A] sky.
There was a [
Bm] band playin' [C] in my head,
And I [
G] felt like getting [C] high.
I was [
D] thinkin' about what a [A] friend had said,
I was [
C] hopin' it was a [G] lie.
I was [
D] thinkin' about what a [A] friend had said,
I was [
C] hopin' it was a [G] lie.

Well I [
D] dreamed I saw the silver [G] spaceships flyin’,
In the [
D] yellow haze of the [G] sun.
There were [
D] children cryin' and [A] colors flyin'
All a-[
G]-round the chosen [A] one.
All in a [
Bm] dream, all [C] in a dream, the [G] loading had be-[C]-gun.
[
D] Flyin' Mother Nature’s [A] silver seed to a [C] new home in the [G] sun.
[
D] Flyin' Mother Nature’s [A] silver seed to a [C] new home . . . [G] . . .
