Like a Hurricane - Neil Young

Like a Hurricane

Greatest Hits
classic rock rock Neil Young singer-songwriter folk


"Like a Hurricane" is a song written by Neil Young in 1975 and first released on the album American Stars 'N Bars in 1977. The song was written in July 1975 with friend and La Honda neighbor Taylor Phelps in the back of his car, (a DeSoto Suburban), when Neil Young was unable to sing due to an operation on his vocal cords. Driven by Young's trademark fierce guitars, the song has been played on nearly every tour Neil Young has done since. It has also appeared on the compilations Decade and Greatest Hits and on the live albums Live Rust, Weld and Unplugged (this last rendition is played almost entirely on a pump organ). An edited version of "Like a Hurricane" was released as a single on August 8th 1977, with "Hold Back the Tears" as B-side.


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.

Like a Hurricane - Neil Young

Once I thought I saw you
In a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light
From star to star.
Far across the moonbeam
I know that's who you are,
I saw your brown eyes
Turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
Where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

I am just a dreamer,
But you are just a dream,
You could have been
Anyone to me.
Before that moment
You touched my lips
That perfect feeling
When time just slips
Away between us
On our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
Where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

You are just a dreamer,
And I am just a dream.
You could have been
Anyone to me.
Before that moment
You touched my lips
That perfect feeling
When time just slips
Away between us
On our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
Where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.
