Song Lyrics

Sugar Mountain

by Neil Young

Printer-friendly version of this lyric

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too soon
You're leavin' there too soon

It's so noisy at the fair
But all your friends are there
And the candy floss you had
And your mother and your dad

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too soon
You're leavin' there too soon

Underneath the stairs
And you're giving back some glares
To the people who you met
And it's your first cigarette

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too soon
You're leavin' there too soon

There's a girl just down the aisle
Oh to turn and see her smile
You can hear the words she wrote
As you read the hidden note

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too soon
You're leavin' there too soon

So you finally left your home
And you started out your own
And it's funny how you feel
'Cause you're findin' out it's real

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Though you're thinking that
You're leavin' there too soon
