“Harvest” by Neil Young

Harvest—-A most enchanting song, “Harvest” by Neil Young.  It keeps circling around in my head and heart.  Sure, it’s not the only song that does that to me, but it is one of the best ones lately.

Find the song here:

I encourage to listen to the audio, sing out loud while reading the lyrics (below), and enjoy the feeling that follows. 

“Harvest” (Neil Young)

Did I see you down in a young girl’s town

With your mother in so much pain?

I was almost there at the top of the stairs

With her screamin’ in the rain.

Did she wake you up to tell you that

It was only a change of plan?

Dream up, dream up, let me fill your cup

With the promise of a man.

Did I see you walking with the boys

Though it was not hand in hand?

And was some black face in a lonely place

When you could understand?

Did she wake you up to tell you that

It was only a change of plan?

Dream up, dream up, let me fill your cup

With the promise of a man.

Will I see you give more than I can take?

Will I only harvest some?

As the days fly past will we lose our grasp

Or fuse it in the sun?

Did she wake you up to tell you that

It was only a change of plan?

Dream up, dream up, let me fill your cup

With the promise of a man.
