Rockin' In The Free World.

Cette semaine a été l’occasion de revoir le film de Michael Moore Fahrenheit 9/11 se terminant sur une chanson culte du guitariste canadien Neil Young : Rockin' In The Free World. Tout ça m’a donné des frissons.

 

 

Rockin' In The Free World / Neil Young [Album: Freedom / 1989]

There are colours on the street

Red, white and blue

People shufflin' their feet

People sleepin' in their shoes

But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead

There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead

Don't feel like Satan but I am to them

So I try to forget it anyway I can

 

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

 

I see a girl in the night

With a baby in her hand

Under an old street light

Near a garbage can

Now she puts the kid away and she's gone to get a hit

She hates her life and what she's done to it

That's one more kid that will never go to school

Never get to fall in love never get to be cool

 

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

 

We got a thousand points of light

For the homeless man

We got a kinder gentler machine gun hand

 

We got department stores and toilet paper

Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer

Got a man of the people says keep hope alive

Got fuel to burn got roads to drive

 

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world
