Neil Young - Dont Let It Bring You Down Live tab

Don't Let It Bring You Down (live version from "Down by the River bootleg")
Neil Young


Well, this is as close as i can get.I like this live version better than
the album version and its very fun to play: very free rythm. Dont play with a
metronome.

This is the live version from "Down by the River." 
Its similar to the live version on "4 way street" which is tuned a whole step
higher(C G C F A C) than this version and has 

other differences... the hardest thing about this tab was figuring out the
tuning. I believe that the "4 Way Street" and 

"After the Goldrush" versions have similar tuning so if you like, figure those
out.. they shouldnt be too much different from 

this tab.

Lyrics: Old man lying by the side of the road With the lorries rolling by, Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load And the building scrape the sky, Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn And the morning paper flies, Dead man lying by the side of the road With the daylight in his eyes. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Find someone who's turning And you will come around. Blind man running through the light of the night With an answer in his hand, Come on down to the river of sight And you can really understand, Red lights flashing through the window in the rain, Can you hear the sirens moan? White cane lying in a gutter in the lane, If you're walking home alone. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around. Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around.
