Neil Percival Young (born November 12, 1945) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, and social activist who is widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians of his generation, particularly as Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Young was born in Toronto, but he moved to the family home of Winnipeg as a child, which is where his music career began. Young began performing as a solo artist in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield along with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay.

Cortez The Killer - Neil Young

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun
.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds
.

And his subjects
Gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see
.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood
Straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on
.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones
.

They carried them
To the flatlands
And they died along the way
But they built up
With their bare hands
What we still can't do today
.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way
.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer
.
