If I Don't Know

Album: The Monsanto Years (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This melancholic track features some free-roaming guitar interplay between Neil Young and Willie Nelson's sons Lukas and Micah.

    Lukas told Uncut about his long history with Young. "I've known him for most of my life," he said. "I remember I had just written a song, so I had my brother Micah sing it with me, and he played it for Neil. He said, 'Oh man! That's some good guitar picking.' I must have been 10 or 11."
