needle and the damage done lyrics – neil young

“needle and the damage done”

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
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.
