The Painter Lyrics

Artist: Neil Young
Album: Prairie Wind

The painter stood before her work
She looked around everywhere
She saw the pictures and she painted them
She picked the colours from the air

Green to green, red to red
Yellow to yellow in the light
Black to black when the evening comes
Blue to blue in the night

It's a long road behind me
It's a long road ahead
If you follow every dream, you might get lost
If you follow every dream, you might get lost

She toed the line
She held her end up
She did the work of two men
But in the end she fell down
Before she got up again

I keep my friends eternally
We leave our tracks in the sound
Some of them are with me now
Some of them can't be found

It's a long road behind me
And I miss you now
If you follow every dream, you might get lost
If you follow every dream, you might get lost

Green to green, red to red
Yellow to yellow in the light
Black to black when the evening comes
Blue to blue through the night
