Tired Eyes
(Neil Young)

Well, he shot four men in a cocaine deal
and he left them lying in an open field,
full of old cars with bullet holes in the mirrors
he tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice,
open up your tired eyes, open up your tired eyes.

Well, it wasn't supposed to go down that way.
But they burned his brother,
They left him lying in the driveway.
They let him down with nothing,
he tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice,
Open up your tired eyes, open up your tired eyes.

Well, tell me more, tell me more, tell me more.
I mean was he a heavy doper or was he just a loser?
He was a friend of yours, what do you mean,
he had bullet holes in his mirrors.
He tried to do his best but he could not.

Please take my advice, please take my advice,
Open up your tired eyes, open up your tired eyes.
