Unknown Legend

Album: Harvest Moon (1992)
  • She used to work in a diner
    Never saw a woman look finer
    I used to order just to watch her float across the floor
    She grew up in a small town
    Never put her roots down
    Daddy always kept movin', so she did too

    Somewhere on a desert highway
    She rides a Harley-Davidson
    Her long blonde hair flyin' in the wind
    She's been runnin' half her life
    The chrome and steel she rides
    Collidin' with the very air she breathes
    The air she breathes

    You know it ain't easy
    You got to hold on
    She was an unknown legend in her time
    Now she's dressin' two kids
    Lookin' for a magic kiss
    She gets the far-away look in her eyes

    Somewhere on a desert highway
    She rides a Harley-Davidson
    Her long blonde hair flyin' in the wind
    She's been runnin' half her life
    The chrome and steel she rides
    Collidin' with the very air she breathes
    The air she breathes

    Somewhere on a desert highway
    She rides a Harley-Davidson
    Her long blonde hair flyin' in the wind
    She's been runnin' half her life
    The chrome and steel she rides
    Collidin' with the very air she breathes
    The air she breathes Writer/s: Neil Young
