Neil Young - Lonely Weekend Lyrics




Come along and say you will,
Be the one to change the meaning
Of the writing on the wall
The lonely politician
is lying in the hall.

Come along and say you can,
Be the one to take this feeling,
I'll never understand,
Why walk around the center
With a nail through your hand?

It's another way to run,
It's a lonely weekend
And what have you done?
You know you got
a reason to run, babe
You know you got
a reason to hide, babe

Come along and say you will,
Be the one to change the meaning
Of the writing on the wall
The lonely politician
is lying in the hall.

It's another way to run,
It's a lonely weekend
And what have you done?
You know you got
a reason to run, babe
You know you got
a reason to hide, babe.

Come along and say you can,
Be the one to take this feeling,
I'll never understand,
Why walk around the center
With a nail through your hand?

    Mr. Lindenbaum you are a goldmine!  Thanks for these great uploads!

    Professor Daniel

    @rustedglory1 I've had these songs sitting in a large box of bootlegs that my Dad collected years ago. I worked on transferring some, while other...I was able to locate myself. It may be a long wait before Neil Young actually releases the next Archives set...so, I'm letting people get an idea of what some of the songs may sound like. I have many more and plan to upload them as well. I have quite a few outtakes from the "Bluenotes" and "International Harvesters" years.

    I thank you and your Dad!  Nothing makes me happier than Neil.  International Harvesters might have been Neil's best band(aside from the Horse) and The Bluenotes are great too...man that is so awesome!

    Professor Daniel

    My Dad saw Neil during the Solo Trans tours of 83', the Ragged Glory tours in 90', the Harvest Moon tours of 92', and a few other. My first Neil concerts were during the his early 2006 tours and the 2007 Chrome Dreams ll tour. I saw him play in the night of his 62nd birthday. Very welcome. Any particular Harvesters or Bluenotes rarity or outtake you want to have posted to YouTube? I think I have most of them.

    Professor Daniel

    @eriq gislason Thank Neil, he'll be putting out Time Fades Away on CD and Time Fades Away ll(which will likely include this song) on the Archives 2 set.
