Falling From Above Live

Neil Young

 G
 grandpa said to cousin jed
 CG
 sittin' on the porch,
 D
"i won't retire    
C*
but i might retread
 G
 seems like that guy singin' this song
 CG
 been doin' it for a long time
 D
is there anything he knows  
C*
that he ain't said?
 GC
 sing a song for freedom
 GC
 sing a song for love
 GC
 sing a song for depressed angels
 G
falling from above"
D* C D* C D* C D* C

 G
 grandpa held the paper
 CG
 pretendin' he could see
D C*
but he couldn't read without his glasses on
 G
 "how can all these people
 CG
 afford so many things?

when i was young
D C*
people wore what they had on...and mama said
 GC
'a little love and affection
 GC
 in everything you do
 GC
 will make the world a better place
 G
with or without you'"

D*
a little love and affection
 C
 in everything you do
D* C D* C
 GGsusGGsusGGsusGGsus
 G
 slammin' down a late night shot
 CG
 the hero and the artist compared
 D
goals and visions and afterthoughts
 C
 for the 21st century

 G
 but mostly came up with nothin'
 CG
 so the truth was never learned
 DC
and the human race just kept rollin' on   

 GC
 rollin' through the fighting
 GC
 rollin' through the religious wars
 GC
 rollin' down the temple walls
 G
and the church's exposed sores

D*
rollin' through the fighting
 C
 the religious wars
D*
mostly came up with nothin'
C D* C D* C

 G
 "grandpa here's your glasses
 CG
 you'll see much better now,"
G D C*
said that young girl of edith and earl's
 G
 but grandpa just kept starin'
 CG
 he was lost in some distant thought

then he turned and said
 DCCsus2C
to that young girl                

 GC
 "a little love and affection
 GC
 in everything you do
 GC
 will make the world a better place
 G
with or without you"
D*
with or without you
 C
 a better place
D*
with or without you
 C
 with or without you
D* C
 G
 hear that rooster crowin'
 C
 down on the double e

it's a new morning
D C*
dawning on the green
 G
 bouncing off the towers
 C
 and the sun's heading down for the streets

the business meeting
D C*
window shades are drawn

 GC
 another morning edition
 GC
 headed for the porch
 GC
 because grandma puts down the paper
 G
before grandpa raises his fork

D*
a little love and affection
 C
 in everything you do
D* C
A Better Place
D*
hear the rooster crowing
 C
 down on the double e
