Neil Young: Exclusive 'Impeach the President' Lyrics
Fox News ^ | 4/26/2006 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 04/26/2006 6:08:30 PM PDT by Uncledave

Neil Young’s new album, Living with War, is an incendiary, moving, totally American document of peaceful protest that is going to make a lot of people crazy one way or another.

And there’s no doubt that the centerpiece of the album, a song called “Let’s Impeach The President,” performed as a melodic, rocking, campfire ode will be what causes the most controversy.

{snip}

Here, for the first time, the lyrics to Neil Young’s “Let’s Impeach the President”:

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

It's more likely to do what nearly every one of his albums since Rust Never Sleeps (1978) has done -- yawn.

He probably wrote this to get a gig on the Chris Matthews Hardball show.

Neil Neil Neil, what happened? (Flight 93)

NEIL YOUNG LYRICS

"Let's Roll"

I know I said I love you,
I know you know it's true,
I've got to put the phone down,
and do what we got to do.

One's standing in the iselway,
Two more at the door,
We've got to get inside there,
Before they kill somemore.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

No time for indecision,
We've got to make a move,
I hope that were foregiven,
For what we got to

How this all got started,
I'll never understand,
I hope someone can fly this thing,
And get us back to land.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

No one has the answer,
But one thing is true,
You've got to turn on evil,
When it's coming after you,
You've gota face it down,
And when it tries to hide,
You've gota go in after it,
And never be denied,
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

Let's roll for freedome,
Let's roll for love,
We're going after satan,
On the wings of a dove,
Let's roll for justice,
Let's roll for truth,
Let's not let our children,
Grow up fearfull in there youth.

Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.
Time is runnin' out,
Let's roll.

I'm going to miss Neil. He was such a good musician.

The most overrated musician ever. Our cover band plays his song "Down By the River" and our version is a LOT better.



His best work was with Crosby, Stills and Nash.

It looks like Neil just copy and pasted a thread from DU, and made them his lyrics.

The sad thing is mis-informed people will take his new song as gospel.

This is too bad. I spent most of my teenage years drunk and listening to/playing Neil Young songs. Even Greendale is fantastic despite its leftist agenda. this however is absurd.

One of the finest.

I wonder if he'd record a retraction song if we ever found the WMD that were moved out of Iraq (to Syria, most likely) while we were messing around for months with the UN? I'd hope so. ....but doubt it.
