 Pocohontas : Rust Never Sleeps

 C
 Aurora Borealis

     C
 The icy sky at night

 Dm
 Paddles cut the water

      C
 In a long and hurried flight

           G7        Bb      F         C
 From the white man  to the fields of green

         G7       Bb     F     C
 and the homeland  we've never seen


 They killed us in our teepee
 And they cut our women down
 They might have left some babies
 Cryin' on the ground
 But the firesticks and the wagons come
 And the night falls on the settin' sun

 They massacred the buffalo
 Kitty corner from the bank
 The taxis run across my feet
 And my eyes have turned to blanks
 In my little box at the top of the stairs
 With my indian rug and a pipe to share

 C C Dm C G7 Bb F C

 I wish I was a trapper
 I would give a thousand pelts
 To sleep with Pocohontas
 and find out how she felt
 In the mornin' on the fields of green
 In the homeland we've never seen

 And maybe Marlon Brando
 Will be there by the fire
 We'll sit and talk of Hollywood
 And the good things there for hire
 And the Astradome and the first teepee
 Marlon Brando, Pocohontas and me
 Marlon Brando, Pocohontas and me
 G7         Bb F C
 Pocohontas


 notes:
 C  335553 it MUST be played this way for the first half of the verse!

About the artist behind Pocahontas Chords:

Neil Percival Young[1] OM (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.

Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and electric-charged hard rock (in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)"). In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial, alternative country and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge".

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).[2]

He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School,[3] and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Although Young sings frequently about U.S. legends and myths (Pocahontas, space stations, and the settlement of the American West),[4] he remains a Canadian citizen and has never wanted to relinquish his Canadian citizenship. He has lived in the U.S. for "so long" and has stated, about U.S. elections, that he has "got just as much right to vote in them as anybody else."[5]
