Young, Neil - Pocahontas Lyrics




Aurora borealis
The icy sky at night
Paddles cut the water
In a long and hurried flight
From the white man
to the fields of green
And the homeland
we've never seen.

They killed us in our tepee
And they cut our women down
They might have left some babies
Cryin' on the ground
But the firesticks
and the wagons come
And the night falls
on the setting sun.

They massacred the buffalo
Kitty corner from the bank
The taxis run across my feet
And my eyes have turned to blanks
In my little box
at the top of the stairs
With my Indian rug
and a pipe to share.

I wish a was a trapper
I would give thousand pelts
To sleep with Pocahontas
And find out how she felt
In the mornin'
on the fields of green
In the homeland
we've never seen.

And maybe Marlon Brando
Will be there by the fire
We'll sit and talk of Hollywood
And the good things there for hire
And the Astrodome
and the first tepee
Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me
Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me
Pocahontas.

    😆👍💞that's right

  4. goober666

    The exception that proves the rule that all hippies are useless turds.

  5. dcookie

    i'd love to know everything about this recording.. where it was recorded, who's are the other players and who is singing backup. It's just a spectacular work.

  6. Todd Gatesh

    This "rebastardized" version sucks! Stop screwing up music!

  7. Daniel Gonzalo Cardenas Contreras

    Qué majestuosa música y canción cuál es el mensaje.

  8. Jdios Hernández Aguilar

    No me canso de escuchar estas canciones de neil / para mi esa una " power balad"

  9. Cockeyed Optimist

    This Neil guy is gonna get big one day-- just mark my words.

    Thelma De veyra

    Reckon so, specially if he can buy his own guitar, that is if he hits it big...

    John Bennett

    Cockeyed Optimist he’s Canadian so it’ll be a long shot... unless he goes down to the US of A.

  10. Jeff Brown-Hill

    Absolute perfection.

  11. DOUG WALTON

    That "Pochahontas" line at the end man. Gets me every time

  12. Charles SWAG

    Best song.

  13. bill r

    1024 Cherokee---Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and Me...

  14. Robert Underwood

    How heartbreaking, still going on now, to a kid in a detention center on the border, to tribespeople in the Amazon, at Standing Rock last year.

  15. Nebojsa Brocic

    Being huge fan of Neil, I also like his inspirations...😉 https://youtu.be/r26tdjUG3xU

  16. Admiral Quality

    "I wish I was a trapper, I would give a thousand pelts, to sleep with Pocahontas, and find out how she felt..."

    Admiral Quality

    "...Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me..."

  17. kiezer sosay

    This song has so much more meaning to me now. Knowing that "we" didn't arrive here first. Not by a long shot, and we didn't bring techknowlgy either...

    yoshoad

    Who Did ?

    Angel-O

    @yoshoad His name is Nikola Tesla.
    ... I think!

  18. RogueTalent541

    ELECT elizabeth warren ROFL!!!!! POCOHONTAS...FULL BLOODED CHEROKEE!!!!

    nittles61

    That's all you have to say about this song? Really? Why not just say "I'm a troll" and leave it at that?

    XWriter100

    @nittles61 Ya didn't nit pick at the other stupid comments , why this one?

    XWriter100

    @nittles61 Why not?

  19. Metalhaid

    Neil Young is the reason I learned to play guitar. I can never play or sing even close to him, but I can get a little close to him when I do. I had to give up guitar for 5 years due to physical restraints. Just had shoulder surgery, and can now pick up a guitar again. First hour I played all Neil Young songs. I'm home. God I love you, Neil - thanks for all of the magic, for over 50 years.

    RogueTalent541

    I ME ME MY

    eddie petrofsky

    I learned guitar because of Neil Young also

    TT Willow

    I've been playing guitar since the mid 60s. Lots of NY songs and others. I also broke my shoulder. I had to give up the guitar I played for 40 years. Got a small touring guitar and can play it and tune it too. I have some of my song covers on youtube, plus lots of rescue dog videos.

    John Crowe

    I used to for a long time as a pizza delivery driver sing along with Neil's music. He was along with me for many a mile. He was my co pilot!

    TT Willow

    @John Crowe Long may you run!!!

  20. Abdul Hamid Kara

    I once stopped my Maths classes to analyse this song in class...

  21. EnoVarma

    Hands down, the best song ever written about Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and Neil Young.

    John Bennett

    You haven’t heard the song about Marlon Brando Pocahontas Neil Young and Bo Dudley???

  22. John Browne

    This song is dedicated to Elizabeth Warren.

    Each21

    Yeah, and her grandparents eloped, too.

    nittles61

    Quiet, troll.

  23. Peter Bostock

    Every day song on this album is brilliant.

    Sean McAleavy

    Yes, you are right. For some reason, when I read your comment, Ride My Llama popped into my head and it doesn't seem to want to leave. That's alright though, it's welcome to hang out for a while.

  24. Tracey Pistorio

    Uncle Neil is my fave Canadian.. after Bobby Orr of course..

  25. Sean Day

    Is there no end to this man’s talent?

  26. Vin T

    This falls into the category of 'greatest song people have never heard'.

  27. Peter Williams

    One of the BEST SONGS ever written , man's a Genius .

  28. Lancer X

    Neil Young and Crazy Doing Live Rusts Acoustic Set is Utter Bliss !!

    Joseph Johnson

    Definitely and when they transition to rock its good too

    Joseph Johnson

    My favorite album ever

  29. DTOM, ¿eStamos?

    I wish I was a trapper...

  30. Tyler Cor

    This guy was good

    Michael Kane

    IS good!

    Jan Agersten

    Still is

  31. ZionForman

    and maybe Marlon Brando would be there by the fire, and we'd sit and talk about Hollywood and the good things there for hire, like the Astrodome and the first TV, Marlon Brando Pocahontas and me

    Each21

    I think it's "...the first teepee."

    ZionForman

    yeah, I know

  32. razumfrackle

    Pretentious, virtue signaling crap.

    oakeysmokey

    go jerk off to more trump rallies or a klan picnic then you fooi

    razumfrackle

    nathan phillips? dat u?

  33. Pointless Peasant

    Something about this song always makes me want to pick up a gun/bomb and go out in a shining blaze of glory. Obviously I won't as it won't achieve much but for the oppressed under the yoke of tyranny, I can see why it would be preferable to a slow torturous death.

    "Rise like lions after slumber,
    Shake your chains to earth like dew,
    Which in sleep had fallen on you,
    Ye are many, they are few"

    Gary Simmons

    Pointless Peasant
    Wow dude, that's awesome! 👍

    Pointless Peasant

    @Gary Simmons
    Would love to be able to say I wrote it, but all I can do is to quote Shelley.

    razumfrackle

    @Pointless Pleasant, prefer you didn’t hurt anyone, BUT if you’re hell bent on “going out in a blaze of glory” you might as well take out that stolen valor Nathan Phillips guy, and that faux Native American, Ward Churchill.

    Still prefer you just take another bong hit and chill.

    Terry Burns

    Better to burn out?

  34. Robert Marcotte

    Classic NEIL, Hollywood, the Astrodome, Marlin Brandi, NEIL, Pocohantus & the 1st Tepee. Poetic & loyal to Native American plights, incl all mankind less Warmongers &/or Monsanto.

  35. Phil Herrera

    I lived in a small town called Las Animas Colo for a while and checked out the Sand Creek Masacure I know the spelling is jacked but thats not the point when I was there this song came to mind made the Sand Creek situation very sad in my mind!!

    Adam Rader

    @Hey_ Joe Sounds like we have a triggered snowflake on our hands here

    Hey_ Joe

    And as usual, the leftist pos can't refute anything said. Because it's ALL FACTS. You people hate facts.

    Adam Rader

    @Hey_ Joe I have a feeling that no facts either of us have on hand would bring an end to a YouTube comment section argument. Have fun with your childish, irresponsible bigotry though!

    Hey_ Joe

    Sure we can end it now. ... Once upon a time ALL people did bad things to other people. And neither you nor I owe anyone alive today wealth or prosperity for what a bunch of dead people of ALL races and Religions once did. The End.... All you seem to have are insults. Like any Progressive who denies basic human anatomy and biological science, but demands i agree with them on climate science. BECAUSE IT'S SCIENCE YOU BIGOT !! lololol Keep it outa my eyes Fascist. Nobody's being bullied or guilted into agreeing with you in this comment section. You're outmatched. Go back to moms basement and regroup.

    nittles61

    Hey Joe, maybe pause to wonder what it is that make you so eager to discredit any and every protest song—so eager you seek out the YT pages of songs like “Pocohontas” in order to insult the supposed “leftists” who like them. Why squander your obvious intelligence defending an obvious jackass like Trump? What makes someone CHOOSE to be a Republican? And why are Republicans unable—ever—to write a song as searing as ”Pocohonttas?”
