Neil Young - From Hank To Hendrix Lyrics




From Hank to Hendrix
I walked these streets with you
Here I am with this old guitar
Doin' what I do.

I always expected
That you should see me through
I never believed in much
But I believed in you.

Can we get it together
Can we still stand side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

From Marilyn to Madonna
I always loved your smile
Now we're headed
for the big divorce
California-style.

I found myself singin'
Like a long-lost friend
The same thing that makes you live
Can kill you in the end.

Can we get it together
Can we still stand side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

Sometime it's distorted
Not clear to you
Sometimes the beauty of love
Just comes ringin' through.

New glass in the window
New leaf on the tree
New distance between us
You and me.

Can we get it together
Can we still walk side by side
Can we make it last
Like a musical ride?

  4. M Duinker

    I can still remember watching the MTV unplugged show "live" on tv when it was broadcasted. I loved every minute of it. The songs, the musicians, NY, the whole atmosphere it created... It was mindblowingly good. Till this very day I rewatch it every now and then. Thank you YouTube for that!

  5. Ruth Rapp

    Love Neil. Beautiful, sad song.

  12. Daniel K

    From Marilyn to Madonna, I always loved your smile. DAMN that's good

  13. Daniel K

    Harvest Moon truly is Neil's best album but a lot of people don't realize it because he didn't release it during his "classic" era. I love those old 70's albums but this is really his artistic peak in my opinion.

  14. carlos esteban lopez maldonado

  28. JOHN DANCAUSE

  43. walter occhini

    introspective!!!

  44. Google User

    This song just gets me. I saw Neil perform this whole album in the late 90's. Never had tears at a rock concert, until I heard him play this album live.

  45. Lucigaïah

    Do someone know who is the Hank, Neil is talking about in this epic song ? Thank you ! °~°

    Rachael Eskridge

    Hank Williams

  46. Antonio Valenti

    I remember this song from when I was a young kid. I would be sitting with my dad in front of the fireplace listen to the harvest Moon tape. The good ol days.

  47. jimysohns

    The Hank is Hank Marvin of the Shadows but I do beleive the Martin hes playing was Hank Williams 1941 D-28.

  57. Bryan Palmer

    Apparently the unplugged was a disaster. Neil was furious with the band members because they kept screwing up. He requested over and over to restart songs and play things to perfection. Neil is a musical perfectionist

    Willem

    Bryan Palmer it turned out great ☺

  58. JOHN JOHNSON

    I first heard this song at a live Neil performance in San Diego, before Harvest Moon came out. I had recently separated from my wife at the time, moving toward divorce, and Neil was singing my life to me. I bought Harvest Moon soon after it was released and listened to it many times, sometimes to tears, sometimes to loud sobbing... i still can't hear this song without emotion, but the sobbing is over. Neil is all about discovery, growth, living... and healing. Thanks, Neil.

  59. Israel Goldemberg

    Best disco and song. 1992-1993 was perfect!

  60. Cassy Palmer

    Neil has been part of my life for over forty years, wow longer than the wife and kids, I love him like part of the family, long may you run

  61. James Greene

    I remember buying this Album on video and cassette tape when it first came out was lucky enough to get to see the legend Neil Young live in Slane Castle Ireland 🇮🇪 that same year the day after my 18 birthday what a present my mother got me when see bought me the ticket for my birthday couldn't have asked for a better present great day Van morrison and a few other big groups played the same day never forget it have loved Neil since I was 15 and I'm almost 42 now his music has got me some bad times

    I don´t understand why this beautiful unplugged is not released on blu ray or dvd , why ?

  64. warrior #itaintme_gmail_com

    i love this fella, i first started listening when i was in jail, got me through many years, couldnt wait for that door to shut so i could turn off the lights, put me headphones on and was sweet alabama

  65. arturo garcia

    this is one of a kind music and lyrics

  66. keseysvenisonchili

    quite possibly the greatest thing he ever recorded.

  67. Mike Folchetti

    Love NEIL!WORLD ICON!

  68. Chad Dunnam

    Love the way he tunes his low E to a D.

    Louis G

    Pretty sure he just tunes down a whole step to D. It's a great sound.

    Ronny Totten

    Chad Dunnam he tunes both e atrings to D.

    kingofthebongo200

    Sorry guys this is one of the only ones on harvest moon in standard tuning

  69. wavygr

    When was this?

    LordViperman

    1993 Unplugged session. Master piece!!!

  70. Ted Crocker

    I wish this these vids were in the same order as the original. OH, and wish there were no ads. BTW, the background singer on the left is Neil's daughter Astrid...

    Iron Viking

    His half-sister. :-) Nicolette Larson on the right - RIP.

  71. sundar mann

    This song creates a roller coaster of emotions and feelings.

    The Last Rebel Show

    sundar mann That's the key to a great song. 😆🤘

    steve stubbs

    agreed... this has to be my all time fave...... a roller coaster of emotions...... well put sir :)

    Shapiro's DEAD Cat

    I feel this *every time* I listen. Glad you agree. I oh so love this recording particularly.

    TheAbstractedmind

    sundar mann well said well said !!!!!!!!!

  72. Dave Id

    I love this song so much. It brings back memories of a musician friend of mine who has past on.

  73. Steve31000

    Just seen Neil play a 3 hour gig at the Montreux Jazz festival last night...played an awesome version of this.

    Lenny Benz

    so jealous so on my bucket list

  74. goahead1976

    " Hank " is Hank Marvin of the Shadows in UK , not Hank Williams on this tune.

  75. Greg Mitchell

    A little melancholy but beautiful,with the accordion and harmonicas added in.There are not too many people who create MUSIC these days,most is just street trash down here in the States. Wonderful Neil!!

  76. Doyle Crager

    very surreal song  beautiful

  77. Dan

    Probably one of my favourite songs. Keep on rocking neil

  78. wilson blauheuer

    Neil Young used to blow up frogs when he was a kid

    Plane lover

    Who didnt

    1stSaintsFan

    Hell we all did here in the South and "MOST" of us aren't serial killers. lol.

    wavygr

    i never blew them up but i gigged a few.

  79. MCO_yt

    Perfeito...

  80. John Bennett

    Here i I am with this old guitar doing what I do...

    Amelie Johansson

    Sums it all up in a nutshell.

  81. Patricia Schaffer

    I absolutely LOVE..NEIL.YOUNG

  82. Dan S.

    Finding great beauty in our journey through life - such as this song - surely makes life worth living.

    tvmonkey1

    Excellent comment. Cheers

    James Tracey

    Amen brother

  83. Chad Dunnam

    Love this great tune, Nils accordion just adds class to class.

  84. Jonathon Agee

    The very thing that makes you live, can kill you in the end. Soreen Kierkegarrd said the same thing when he wrote that to live the passionate life is to find that one thing that you can live, and if need be, die for.

  85. Marc Nedley

    NY the most Unknown LIVING legend !!!!

    Joe LaPorte

    Ya Rory Gallagher is dead. or was it Roy Buchanon. Both unknown guitar gods. Neil Young was hip in the 70's. And still lives on. Anyone remembers Ray Davies?

  86. Ryan Hayward

    The whole of harvest moon was a phenomenonal album, NY forever!

    dan w

    Same here. His best!

    Albert Macé

    I wouldn't be abble to say. However i can affirm he hasn't made such a great album for years !

  87. George Wattimena

    I see 12thumbs down ... if you don't like a legend like Neil Young.. you must be stupid ...

    Dawn Mulderig

    George Wattimena yep

    sundar mann

    True. As stupid as one can be.

  88. J W

    Probably the only song in which an accordeon is acceptable. Oh and some Nirvana MTV Unplugged song, coincidentally enough. Don't remember which one exactly.

  89. Roger

    Marvin. Read NY's Autobiography

  90. Cathy McCoy

    Doing what he does best...
    Neil Young...

    chris bush

    @Cathy McCoy & The best he is I cant imagine how it would feel at his level of creative perfection the best Stringman/Songwriter out there today a modern day poet who can tap any level of his soul & heart!!!!!

    Cathy McCoy

    @chris bush​ it's gotta feel good ~ is the first thing that came to my mind. If I could give talent like that to the world, I'd do it in a heartbeat

    chris bush

    @Cathy McCoy Me to it's so beautiful!! 

  91. uาeน้OE ไม่บอก

    ชอบมากกกก

  92. savedfaves

    where has the music gone...

  93. Mark Yelavich

    One of my daughters when she was about a year old used to fall asleep on my chest while listening to this song.  Great harmonica and guitar. Neil is great.

    Mike Green

    Great parenting right there Mark. Having grown up on this album, I now sing this song to my 20-month-old son on the regular when putting him to bed at night.

    Manoel Justino Nunes

    yes, he is the best

    Louis76

    You are so blessed:)

    Michael M.

    Mark, that is great!!! Hopefully she will remember some of this when she gets older. She's about 5 now so I hope she is listening to some similar music.

  94. Maximus Tull

    As song writers there is NY and then far behind, everyone else.

    Bird Redwoods

    Agreed. And very well put.

    NY Live. New Zealand 1986 . . . .

    Diana Hedrick

    +Maximus Tull , NY is The best!

    jaime cook

    Neil is Canadian tho...

    Shawn Kuin

    ha haha

  95. Freyrfimbulwinter

    I hear myself singin' like a long-lost friend. The same thing that makes you live can kill you in the end. 

    Mandy Vin

    Did me, that's for sure.

  96. Настя Прядка

    соол

  97. Doyle Crager

    wow! what a great song. todays music is no comparison to music of yesteryear. neil young is one of the best songwriters. brings back many memories of my younger years.

  98. Annie-france COHEN

    j aime beaucoup ses douches chansons...
