Neil Young, "Like a Hurricane"

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-WMbP1RcC4]
From American Stars and Bars (1977).
Nice! Too much man, too much.
LIKE A HURRICANE
Once I thought I saw you in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam I know that’s who you are,
I saw your brown eyes turning once to fire.
You are like a hurricane
There’s calm in your eye.
And I’m gettin’ blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I’m getting blown away.
I am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream,
You could have been anyone to me.
Before that moment you touched my lips
That perfect feeling when time just slips
Away between us on our foggy trip.
You are like a hurricane
There’s calm in your eye.
And I’m gettin’ blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I’m getting blown away.
You are just a dreamer, and I am just a dream.
You could have been anyone to me.
Before that moment you touched my lips
That perfect feeling when time just slips
Away between us on our foggy trip.
You are like a hurricane
There’s calm in your eye.
And I’m gettin’ blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I’m getting blown away.

  1. So I grew up in Neil Young’s hometown. You heard about this guy everywhere. You heard all these little anecdotes about him. One of my friend’s dad’s went to school with him. I was more punk/heavy metal growing up and never had an appreciation for the guy.
    Prior to beating feet outta there I was bartending at a live music club.
    I got called in one afternoon because there was European artist touring North America trying to break into the market and doing short notice concerts for local musicians, promoter’s, ‘industry folk’. It wasn’t a huge crowd , I was able to watch most of the show. So she get’s around to
    ‘I’m so happy to be playing in my hero’s hometown. He has inspire me so much…… yada, yada, yada, blah, blah…..”
    Then she turns out this;

    Blew me away.
    She was smoking hot then, from the vid I was able to find , she held up well. She did it the same way I remember it. Magnificent voice and acoustic guitar. Beautiful.
