Neil Young - Human Highway Lyrics




I come down
from the misty mountain
I got lost
on the human highway
Take my head
refreshing fountain
Take my eyes
from what they've seen.
Take my head
and change my mind
How could people
get so unkind.

I come down
from the crooked mansion
I went lookin'
for the D.J.'s daughter
Since that day
I heard it mentioned
That my name is on the line.
Now, my name is on the line
How could people
get so unkind.

Now, my name is on the line
How could people
get so unkind.

I come down
from the misty mountain
I got lost
on the human highway
Take my head
refreshing fountain
Take my eyes
from what they've seen.
Take my head
and change my mind
How could people
get so unkind.

Neil Young Human Highway Comments
  1. alpha java

    These type of songs remind me of my grandma who would sing old hillbilly songs as she babysat me as a child .. so sweet. I grew up out west but she grew up in Oklahoma.

  2. Nancy Newman

    Singing this with gusto to all those who get so unkind and you know who you are God sees all mate

  3. Damien Faure

    One of my favorite songs. It's so fresh.

  4. Will Jones

    I think 'Comes A Time' is his best album. Nicolette Larsen makes a nice contribution to the record.

  5. Rafael nieves peña

    Such a great song.....

  6. Luiz Eduardo Virgilliano

    Grande álbum!

  7. art vallejos

    Think I'll pack it in and buy a pick up take it down to LA

  8. Christinna Guzman

    One of my most favorite albums of all time...reminds me of fall. Guess it's time to go find a pumpkin patch.

  9. bfrost1965

    Zero dislikes? It turns out zero people don't hate good music!

  10. Morag MacGregor

    Nicolette's singing was so beautiful on this album and so tight with Neil's vocals, This could still be a hit single IMO, There are many on this album that might be more appreciated now than they were in 1978.

    My favorite of Neil's albums by a country mile.

    John Vallett

    Morag MacGregor agreed, just been playing it Again, as its my Favorite also, since Dad played the Absolute guts out if it from 1988 onwards, I looked up Nicolette Larson only to find she died years ago only 45, what a shame, perfect on here with Neil, so the album was only about ten years old when he got it, Human Highway my Favorite off the album,

    Bruce Margot

    Greetings from a 65 yr old fart from South Africa, couldn't agree more, of all his albums, this is the one that fires on my speakers the most, beautiful profound lyrics, and the whole album is beautifully crafted, musical art at its best

  11. Shelley Bailey

    I love all of his music it always says so much

  12. Bongo Dave

    I want this played at my funeral.

    Ted Peterson

    Bongo Dave
