Listen Closely

This is so fucking cool I can't hardly stand it!

Neil Young has a new album coming out but he threw this up on Youtube for everyone and it is FUCKING AWESOME!!

Before I put this up, I have to thank a very great guy and someone I consider a friend, Eureka Springs, who put this up at Firedoglake earlier tonight. Eureka Springs is the shit and he is into music and politics and is a very cool guy.

Thanks dude, I told ya was going to swipe this!

Neil Young was famous when I was still knee high to a chopping block for his anti war stance and is absolutely legendary.
This is fucking great.

Pay attention, this is something he just threw together.



Bonus, here are the lyrics, posted at HuffPo.

Lyrics to "Fork in the Road"



Got a pot belly. 
It's not too big. 
Gets in my way 
when I'm driving my rig.
 Driving this country
 in a big old rig, 
things I see
 mean a lot.



My friend has a pickup.
 Drives his kid to school.
 Then he takes his wife
to beauty school.

 Now she's doin' nails.
 Gonna get a job.
 Got a good teacher.


There's a fork in the road ahead.
 I don't know which way I'm gonna turn.
 There's a fork in the road ahead.

Forgot this year, 
to salute the troops. 
They're all still there
 in a fucking war. It's no good.
 Whose idea was that?



I've got hope,
 but you can't eat hope. 
I'm not done. 
Not giving up. 
Not cashing in.
 Too late.

There's a bailout coming but it's not for me. 
It's for all those creeps watching tickers on TV. 
There's a bailout coming but it's not for me.

I'm a big rock star.
 My sales have tanked,
 but I still got you.
 Thanks!
 Download this.
 Sounds like shit.



Keep on bloggin' 'til the power goes out,
 and your battery's dead.

Twist and Shout. 
On the radio.
 Those were the days.
 Bring 'em back.

There's a bailout coming but it's not for you.
 It's for all those creeps hiding what they do.
 There's a bailout coming but it's not for you.
 Bailout coming but it's not for you.

Got my new flat-screen.
 Got it repo'd now. 
They picked it up.
 Left a hole in the wall.
 Last Saturday.
 Missed the Raiders game.

There's a bailout coming but it's not for you.
 There's a bailout coming but it's not for you.
 It's for all those creeps hiding what they do.
