Neil Young - Comes A Time Lyrics

Comes a time
when you're driftin'
Comes a time
when you settle down
Comes a light
feelin's liftin'
Lift that baby
right up off the ground.

Oh, this old world
keeps spinning round
It's a wonder tall trees
ain't layin' down
There comes a time.

You and I we were captured
We took our souls
and we flew away
We were right
we were giving
That's how we kept
what we gave away.

Oh, this old world
keeps spinning round
It's a wonder tall trees
ain't layin' down
There comes a time.

Neil Young Comes A Time Comments
  1. James McKelvey

    Hope this show comes out on the Archives since it had Nicolette Larson on backing vocals and Hargus "Pig" Robbins on just stunning piano. Grey Riders might have been the best band, musician wise, that Young ever played with and if you heard one of these shows I think you'd agree. From Sugar Mountain set lists:
    1985-09-05, Meadowbrook Music Theatre, Rochester, Michigan, USA
    w/ The International Harvesters

    Country Home / Comes A Time / Lookin' For A Love / Heart Of Gold / This Old House / Southern Pacific / Sugar Mountain / Helpless / California Sunset / Nothing Is Perfect / Field Of Opportunity / Down By The River / Old Man / Powderfinger // Get Back To The Country / Grey Riders

    Nicolette Larson's voice, so sweet and clear. Gone not forgotten.

    evan morrow

    It is sad ....she had so many more years of living she could have enjoyed and her little girl had to grow up without a mom. It was the NSAID over the counter pain medication like ibuprofin and acetaminaphen that killed her. It has been the prime mover in the deaths of many millions of people worldwide over the past 50 years from liver and renal failure. The doctors dispense it like halloween candy because it is non-narcotic and since it is obtainable without a prescription, most people equate it to be as safe as aspirin. Unfortunately they couldn't be more wrong. There's other very bad twists to this sad tale. For instance combining ibuprofin and acetaminaphen can ramp up the speed of the liver damage 100 fold. I got lots more but now I'm too depressed now. I know all about this because I'm living it. Nicolet Larsen"s fate is my own and it's right around the corner

  5. Grunthos The Flatulent

    Nicolette was utterly adorable. Taken far too soon. Fuck God and the horse he rode in on.

  6. Nathalie Brun Brun

    Merci Dominique et Patrice R qui m'ont fait connaître Neil à 14 ans. Nat du 86 France

  7. Jean Louis Laenens

    Second voice and fiddle together complementing Neil Young's voice are TOP !!

  8. holmeed

    Neil knows how evil murika is w/o saying it! CANADA!

  9. Lura Johnson

    Pick that baby right up off the ground. ♡

    - XxJimmyPagexX -

    Great lyrics to a diff song tho

  14. Luna Tuna

    Strange how a song can get a person through a hard time. I'm sad because I see my mother slipping away with Hospice at her side. But she's 100 years old, and I guess there comes a time for everything... she's been our family's tall tree all these years, and soon she'll be layin' down for good.

    Dale Kidd

    My prayers are with you! You are loved!!!😎

    Luna Tuna

    Thankyou, Dale Kidd, for kind words. "Comes a time" for all of us, and it's nice to have friend like you, who understands.

  15. Dmitry Svoboda

    Luis Corro

    IntheLandofMordor Did Nicole Larson died?

    Sam Samuels

    @Luis Corro Yes. Several years ago.

  25. Bongo Dave

    One of the best albums by anyone, ever.


    It's my favorite Neil Young album!

  26. Eric Carroll

    I'm 51. Used to play and sing this song when I was about 13. Don't play much anymore but just met a 24year old lady musician last year that plays this and invites me to sing with her at her gigs. How great is that!


    Love that

    Debbie Ritter

    @evan morrow you replied to the wrong person 🙂 Soul 69 was replying to Eric & wasn't the one with the young lady friend ... but good luck with that anyway!lol

    evan morrow

    @Debbie Ritter Oh great !! Now they probably think I'm gay or something. I mean I don't care if they're gay. I have nothing against gay people whatsoever. Gay people are great. Who cares if you're gay or not? Not me, that's for sure. In fact I actually wish there were a hell of a lot more gay people out there. It would mean more chics available for me. It would be a win/win for everyone. I just wanted to make that clear. But thanks for telling me about replying to the wrong person. I don't know what I said or when I said it or where I said it or who I said it to except it was wrong and there's nothing I can do. In the event anyone was hurt in any way by the things I may have/may not have should probably just grow a pair and shrug/walk it off and/or forget about/ignore it.

    Debbie Ritter

    @evan morrow lol. I don't think anyone thought or thinks you're gay ... and no, nothing was said to hurt any feelings. You just hit wrong reply button probably. No worries! Enjoy life, peace out & Rock On! 😊✌❤♪♬

    evan morrow

    @Debbie Ritter Thank God and you too Debbie. As long as no small animals were used for testing or harmed guess I'm cool with it....Take Care and always remember to have fun, by force if necessary and maintain the pursuit of fun as a high priority and a guide for living. Have Fun !!

    Maybe his sweetest song, if not album.

    R G

    My brother bought me this album. It’s great. Every time I hear it. It takes me back to a purer time. I play bass. This is an album I can play everything too. Peace love and tranquility. CHILD HEART FOREVER

  28. DL Reed

    Wish I could go back to that time when I was drifting.

    Mr. Soul '69

    Hehe not me...
    I wouldn't trade a million dollars for my memories of those times, and I wouldn't accept a million dollars to relive them. That was then...

    Bernd Thiel

    ............. comes a time when you saddle down ................


    DL Reed.....I just did.  Just finished an 8000 mile motorcycle trip around nine western states.....and I'm less than a month from turning 79.  Had my 'Dick Dale' Stratocaster strapped on behind!

    Maria Servais

    me too !!!!

    Kay Paton

    Me to live the simplicity of those times

  29. Erek Anderson

    comes a time for everything. sometimes you just need to do it and take that chance.
