Neil Young – Sugar Mountain Lyrics


You pyonged “Neil Young – Sugar Mountain”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leaving there too soon[x2]

[Verse 1]
It's so noisy at the fair
But all your friends are there
And the candy floss you had
And your mother and your dad


[Verse 2]
There's a girl just down the aisle
Oh, to turn and see her smile
You can hear the words she wrote
As you read the hidden note


[Verse 3]
Now you're underneath the stairs
And you're giving back some glares
To the people who you met
And it's your first cigarette


[Verse 4]
Now you say you're leaving home
Because you want to be alone
Isn't it funny how you feel
When you're finding out it's real?
