Now for the goodies:

1 Heart of Gold  – Harvest, (1972)

I want to live,
I want to give
I’ve been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It’s these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.

Live 1971:

2 Down By The River – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, (1969)

Be on my side, I’ll be on your side, baby
There is no reason for you to hide
It’s so hard for me staying here all alone
When you could be taking me for a ride, yeah
She could drag me over the rainbow
And send me away
Down by the river I shot my baby
Down by the river, dead, shot her dead

Neil Young

Live @ Farm aid – 1994 (w/ Crazy Horse)

3 Cortez the Killer – Zuma, (1975)

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

4 After the Gold Rush – After The Gold Rush, (1970)

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.

Neil Young

Live @ Farm Aid 1998:

4 Cinnamon Girl – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, (1969)

I wanna live
with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy
the rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl
