Days That Used To Be

Lyrics: Neil Young
Music: Neil Young

A Neil Young song played by the David Nelson Band.

People say don't rock the boat
Let things go their own way
Ideas that once seemed so right
Now it's getting hard to say
I wish that I could talk to you
And you could talk to me
'Cause there's very few of us left, my friend
From the days that used to be

Seem like such a simple thing
To follow one's own dream
But possessions and concessions
Are not often what they seem
They drag you down and load you down
In disguise of security
But we never had to make those deals
In the days that used to be

Come to me, my long lost friend
And tell me how you are
Are you happy with your circumstance
Are you driving a new car
Does it get you where you want to go
With a seven year warranty
Or just another hundred thousand miles away
From days that used to be
