Neil YoundNeil Young
A man needs a maid



Harvest moet de tweede LP zijn die ik kocht (de eerste was een Rolling Stones plaat). Helemaal grijs gedraaid, en nog steeds is dit de LP (of CD) die ik mee zou nemen naar een onbewoond eiland.

In 2008 heb ik Neil Young live gezien op Bospop (met de Waterboys in het voorprogramma). Dat was geweldig. Hier speelt hij Words tijdens dat concert.




I don't know who
to trust anymore.
There's a shadow running
thru my days.
Like a beggar going
from door to door.

I was thinking that
maybe I'd get a maid.
Find a place nearby
for her to stay.
Just someone
to keep my house clean,
Fix my meals and go away.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

It's hard to make that change
When life and love
turns strange.
And old.

To give a love,
you gotta live a love.
To live a love,
you gotta be "part of".
When will I see you again?

A while ago somewhere
I don't know when,
I was watching
a movie with a friend.
I fell in love with the actress.
She was playing a part
that I could understand.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

When will I see you again?
