BE THE RAIN

BE THE RAIN NEIL YOUNG, (GREENDALE)

 

Save the planet for another day

"attention shoppers, buy with a conscience and save"

Save the planet for another day

"save alaska! let the caribou stay"

Don't care what the governments say

"they're all bought and paid for anyway"

Save the planet for another day

"hey big oil, what do you say?"

 

We were runnin' through the night

Never knowin' if we would see the light

Paranoid schizophrenic visions

Livin' in fear of the wrong decisions

 

We got to wake up

We got to keep goin'

If they follow us

There's no way of knowin'

 

We got a job to do

We got to

Save mother earth

 

Be the ocean when it meets the sky

"you can make a difference, if you really try"

Be the magic in the northern lights

"six days....six nights"

Be the river as it rolls along

"it has three eyed fish and it's smellin' strong"

Be the rain you remember fallin'

"be the rain, be the rain"

 

Yeah rain was fallin' and we're soakin' wet

Hail is beatin' down on our heads

The wind is blowin' through our hair

Faces frozen in the frigid air

 

We got to get there

Alaska

We got to be there

Before the big machines

 

We got a job to do

We got to

Save mother earth

 

Dream the hunter on the western plain

"the birds are all gone, where did they go?"

Dream the fisherman in his boat

"he's comin' home empty, he's barely afloat"

Dream the logger in the great northwest

"they're runnin' out of trees, they got to give it a rest"

(there's no other way to cut it)

Dream the farmer in the old heartland

"corporate greed and chemicals are killin' the land"

 

Next mornin' sun was up at dawn

She looked around and earth was gone

Dark visions he had last night

He needed peace, he needed light

 

He heard the rumble and

He saw the big machines

The green army rose

It was a bad dream

 

He had a job to do

He had to

Save mother earth

 

Be the ocean when it meets the sky

"greek freighters are dumping crap somewhere right now"

Be the magic in the northern lights

"the ice is melting!"

Be the river as it rolls along

"toxic waste dumpin' from corporate farms"

Be the rain you remember fallin'

"be the rain, be the rain"

Save the planet for another day

"be the rain, be the rain"

Be the river as it rolls along

"be the rain, be the rain"
