ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WAR OF MAN
Words and Music by Neil Young

The little creatures run in from the cold
Back to the nest just like the days of old
There in the safety of a mother’s arms
The warmth of ages far away from harm again
Ears ringin’ from the battle fire
The tired warrior aims a little higher
The black falcon or the little sparrow
The healing light or the flash of a barrel

No one wins
It’s a war of man
No one wins
It’s a war of man

Silver mane flyin’ in the wind
Down through the planets on the run again
No one knows where they’re runnin’ to
But every kind is comin’ two by two
Out on the delta where the hoof beats pound
The daddy’s runnin’ on the frozen ground
Can’t smell the poison as it follows him
Can’t see the gas and machines it’s a war of man

No one wins
It’s a war of man
No one wins
It’s a war of man

The windows open and the little girl dreams
The sky’s her playground as she mounts her steed
Across the heavens to the other side
On wings of magic does a little girl ride
The little creatures run in from the cold
Back to the nest just like the days of old
There in the saftey of a mother’s arms
The warmth of ages far away from harm again

No one wins
It’s a war of man
No one wins
It’s a war of man
No one wins
No one wins

BEST MISTAKE
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

You could say I lost my way
You could say I threw my life away
You might say that it was just a stage
And you might say I rose above the fray
And baby you know I’m here to stay
Our love no longer to be betrayed
She might’ve been the best mistake

You could say we lost our way
You could say we threw our love away
You might say we’ll find a better day
And you might say the pain will melt to rain
Baby our memory will have to fade
Our love no longer to be betrayed
He might’ve been the best mistake
We might’ve made the best mistake
Baby you know it’s not too late

AMERICA (Where’d you go)
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

America where’d you go now
Everything seems the same now
If only we knew then what we know now
Save what we can for our children now
Build your love around me
Your love around me
Build your love around me
Your love around me

If you feel a push It’s from me now
You can’t run from time nowhere to hide now
Erase that scene from your head now
‘Cause I’m the one to build your love now
Please take me home
America
Please take me home
America

I’m here to take you home now
Beyond these gates to the streets now
Back to the soil you belong now
To America on your feet now
Please take me home
America
Oh, take me home
America
Where’d you go
America
Where’d you go
Where’d you go
America
Where’d you go

WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

I tried to conquer the world in one day
That silver spoon it ain’t coming my way
Do what it takes whatever to survive
Maybe someday I’ll finally arrive
I was born and placed right into a box
It’s up to me to break open this lock
Can you tell me who your friends are
You can tell me who your friends are
Who your true friends are
When bad times come around

Well, I’ve spent a lifetime being someone else
When I should’ve just been myself
I’m feeling lonely lost out in a crowd
It’s kind of nice to feel wanted somehow
People shoved me straight into a box
I need your help to break open this lock
Can you tell me who your friends are
You can tell me who your friends are
Who your true friends are
When bad times come around

How you describe disaster from success
It’s a fine line when you live on a ledge
I try my best each and every day
To grab the brass ring to find my way
I’ve been labeled and sealed up in a box
It’s time for me to break open this lock
Can you tell me who your friends are
You can tell me who your friends are
Who your true friends are
When bad times come around
Can you tell me who your friends are
You can tell me who your friends are
Who your true friends are
When bad times come around
You know those bad times
Well there gonna come around
And you gotta know who your friends are

GIRLS FROM THE US of A
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

Now I’ve seen the lights of Paris
I've walked the Tower Bridge
I’ve drank warm Guinness in a Pub
A cold Corona from a fridge
Sun’s-a-risin’ when the last drink is called
Raise my pint to say
I’d trade’em all right now for my girl
Back in the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A

Now if you’ve ever drivin’ south
Of the Mason-Dixon line
Men drink their whisky from a jar
And the women are divine
With the care of a Baptist preacher
On his knees to pray
Nothin’ like the taste of a Georgia peach
Grown in the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A

Now in the Mid-West they’re proud
Of their cornfields and farms
Summer swimmin’ holes and playin’ twister
And big old red barns
This song’s for all you sinners out there
Caught rollin’ in the hay
Nothin’ like a good ole’ farm girl
Raised in the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A

Now I lived in California
I think for ‘bout a year
They served me spicy raw tuna
And Japanese beer
Never could forget all that baby oil
And her negligee’
Nothin’ like a sun-burnt surfin’ girl
Made in the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A

Now all the Northern college towns
Have awesome drinkin’ bars
They also burn plenty of weed
While I play them my guitar
Think I’ve seen every freshman boy
Tryin’ his best to get laid
Nothin’ like a Smokin’ hot college girl
Schooled in the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A
I’d like to thank God for the girls from the US of A

LIFT IT UP
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

Life in constant change
It’s just the way it is
Darkness turns to light
Life leads to death
But it’ll be OK – I swear
A calm before the storm
The wind in your hair
Don’t abandon life
You gotta rise above
Don’t give up hope
You gotta find some love
Oh, Lift it up
Lift it up high
Lift it up
Lift your love high

Life can be un-fair
It’s just the way it is
Daddy lost a job
A brother leaves for war
But it’ll be OK – I swear
There’s a penny on the ground
For your wishing well
Don’t abandon life
You gotta rise above
Don’t give up hope
You gotta find some love
Lift it up
Lift it up high
Lift it up
Lift your love high
Hearing all the lies
It’s no wonder why
It takes so long to find our love
Through time and space
What a waste it would be
If love somehow
Was lost without a trace

Life in constant change
It’s just the way it is
The future pulls the past
Tomorrow leads today
But it’ll be OK – I swear
A thousand years from now
If you show you care
On the path of life
You gotta rise above
Don’t give up hope
You gotta find your heart
Oh, Lift it up
Lift it up high
Lift it up
Lift your love high
Looking at your eyes
There’s no reason why
You can’t find your love and fill your heart
And lift it high
Oh, Lift it up
Lift it up high
Lift it up
Lift your love high
