Depression Blues - Lyrics by Neil Young


Lyrics

Got a woman that loves me
And i love her so
But she's all dressed up now
With nowhere to go.

All our old hang-outs
Are boarded up and closed
Or bein' bought by somebody
Nobody knows.

But things ain't that bad
We still got the kids
We're goin' out to the movies
Right after this.

Goin' back to school
Savin' up my tuition
Gonna rewrite all the rules
On the old blackboard.

'cause it seems things today
There ain't no magic in 'em
They don't cut the grade
Like they used to.

Depression blues
Nowhere to go
Bein' bought by somebody
Nobody knows.

Is there anybody out there
With a voice loud and clear
Gonna sing all the words
We all wanna hear.

Depression blues
Nowhere to go
Bein' bought by somebody
Nobody knows.
