Neil Young s novou verzí skladby „Lookin for Leader“ proti Trumpovi

Původní verze tohoto songu, ve které legendární zpěvák hledal vůdce, se objevila v roce 2016 na jeho albu „Living Eiht War“. Protože jsou v současnosti v Americe zmatení jako lesní včela ve školní jídelně, tak se není co divit, že nový text odráží Youngovu podporu hnutí Black Lives Matter, jeho obdiv k Baracku Obamovi a jeho pohrdání Trumpem.

Jak už jsme psali, zakázal Trumpovi používat jeho hudbu a dokonce ho napadl, že může za infekci Covid-19 a že ho zažaluje. Nedávno však svůj názor přehodnotil.

Lookin’ for a leader 2020

Leaders walk among us and I hope they hear our call
Maybe it’s a woman or a black man after all
Lookin’ for a leader to bring our country home
Reunite the red, white and blue before it turns to stone

Lookin’ for somebody with the strength to take it on
Keep us safe together and make this country strong
Walking among our people there’s someone to lead us on
Need a rainbow of colors in a broken world gone wrong

Yeah, we had Barack Obama and we really need him now
The man who stood behind him has to take his place somehow
America has a leader building walls around our house,
don’t know black lives matter and we got to vote him out

We got our election, but corruption has a chance
We got to have a big win to re-gain confidence
American is beautiful, but she has an ugly side
We’re looking for a leader in this country far and wide

Just like his big new fence this President is going down
America’s moving forward you can feel it in every town
Scared of his own shadow, building walls around our house
He’s hiding in his bunker, something else to lie about

We don’t need a leader building walls around our house
who don’t know black lives matter, and it’s time to vote him out
We’re lookin’ for a leader with the great spirit on his side
Lookin’ for a leader in this country far and wide

Lookin’ for a leader with the great spirit on his side

Neil Young
