Open Mic Week 74: Needle and the Damage Done

in #openmic6 years ago

Hey Steemers!

Back as usual. This time I'm back with a cover by Neil Young called, "Needle and the Damage Done". A masterpiece...if I may say so! A beautifully crafted song by incorporating the D-chord shape into multiple chords and bass melodies. It is simple, yet complex in tones. A song about the damage that heroin did to the music community.

I did this song as a warm up to open mic over a year ago, but decided to make it an actual open mic submission this week! Hope everyone enjoys. Lyrics provided. Cheers! Have a great week

Lyrics
I caught you knockin'
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don't understand
Milk-blood
to keep from running out.

I've seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's
like a settin' sun.

Thanks for stopping by man! It was fun to put together. A true classic indeed.

This is so excellent, Doc! Nice one, brother!

Right back at you brother!

One of my favourite Neil Young songs ever!

You've done it justice. Yours is a much darker version with the tone of your vocals.
