Neil Young - Mother Earth (Natural Anthem) Lyrics




Oh, Mother Earth,
With your fields of green
Once more laid down
by the hungry hand
How long can you
give and not receive
And feed this world
ruled by greed
And feed this world
ruled by greed.

Oh, ball of fire
In the summer sky
Your healing light,
your parade of days
Are they betrayed
by the men of power
Who hold this world
in their changing hands
They hold the world
in their changing hands.

Oh, freedom land
Can you let this go
Down to the streets
where the numbers grow
Respect Mother Earth
and her giving ways
Or trade away
our children's days
Or trade away
our children's days.

Respect Mother Earth
and her giving ways
Or trade away
our children's days.

Neil Young Mother Earth (Natural Anthem) Comments
  1. Steve Andrews

    Spelling it out so clearly! Why didn't enough people listen?

  2. Simon Cornell

    Makes a bit more sense now that the Amazon Rain forest is on fire and politics is causing us to lose it.

    Andrew Greaves

    Made more sense when the album came out. Politics? Like religion, you still believe in it? Bottom line...we have bend over too long and been ignorant to our conquests. Should have listened to those that were here before us. Question is what are we going to do about it? All things considered, politics and religion are great, but then again so are unicorns. I guess the almighty dollar will determine our fate. Ill trust the people with the money....we did this long whats another generation? Put a dollar on that.

  3. Micco Mann

    Oh, Mother Earth
    With your fields of green
    Once more laid down
    By the hungry hand
    How long can you
    Give and not receive
    And feed this world
    Ruled by greed
    And feed this world
    Ruled by greed

    Oh, ball of fire
    In the summer sky
    Your healing light
    Your parade of days
    Are they betrayed
    By the men of power
    Who hold this world
    In their changing hands
    They hold the world
    In their changing hands

    Oh, freedom land
    Can you let this go
    Down to the streets
    Where the numbers grow
    Respect Mother Earth
    And her giving ways
    Or trade away
    Our children's days
    Or trade away
    Our children's days

    Uncle Neil ist geil

  11. The Green Cesspool

    I love this song. I love this album. I really love WELD that came out the next year and I've listened to and spent a lot of money on shit albums and going to see shit bands. I only "saw" Neil Young once with Jeff Healey opening for him and I was too drunk to remember a damn thing :o/ I wonder if that concert is on YT somewhere.....

    Tony COLOSIMO

    The Green Cesspool do yourself an immense favour and see him before he stops touring. I'm in Australia and have managed to see him about 6 times. And if you do manage to see him for Christs sake, don't drink too much.

    Geoffrey Darcy

    Lush? So sorry for your loss.

  12. James Wallace

    A voice of sanity. We just keep on abusing what started out as the garden of Eden.

    Andrew Greaves

    Garden of who? Turtle Island my friend. We are all welcome.

    Andrew Greaves

    Turtle Island were I am from. But still Mother Earth for all of us.

  13. Uncle Gubsy

    Happy earth day everyone!

  14. gazoswoodrat

    Happy Birthday to Neil Young on this day (11-12-15)

  15. Víctor García-Mata González

    Neil Young es un espíritu universal, tal como en el pensamiento de Spinoza, el hombre es cuerpo y mente, en su completitud es parte de una sustancia universal.

  16. CelestialWoodway

    Happy Earth Day
