From His Extensive Catalog

With a career spanning over five decades, Neil Young remains influential. He has dozens of classic hits under his belt and while not every album is perfect, he’s never the type who loses sleep over what critics might think. Music has always been his passion and it showed in his body of works. He doesn’t follow rules, his tracks aren’t formulaic, and more importantly, he knows how to get his message across.

Young is a multi-awarded musician who was inducted twice into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And to celebrate this stellar and prolific songwriter, here are some of his best lyrics.

5. “Leave The Driving”

“And as an afterthought
This must to be told
Some people have taken pure bullshit
And turned it into gold”

4. “The Painter”

“If you follow every dream, you might get lost.”

3. “What Did You Do To My Life?”

“It’s hard enough losing without the confusion of knowing I tried.”

2. “Barstool Blues”

“If I could hold on to just one thought
For long enough to know
Why my mind is moving so fast
And the conversation is slow.”

1. “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)”

“It’s better to burn out than to fade away.”
