The Waltons: A Lifestyle to be Broken


Sugar Mountain
By Neil Young
(modified)

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the Waltons and the colored balloons
You can’t be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon
You’re leaving there too soon

It’s so noisy at the fair, but all your friends are there
And the candy floss you had and your mother and your dad.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the Waltons and the colored balloons
You can’t be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon
You’re leaving there too soon

There’s a girl just down the aisle, oh to turn and see her
smile
You can hear the words she wrote as you read the hidden
note.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the Waltons and the colored balloons
You can’t be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon
You’re leaving there too soon

Now you’re underneath the stairs, and you’re giving back
some glares
To the people who you met, and it’s your first cigarette.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the Waltons and the colored balloons
You can’t be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon
You’re leaving there too soon

Now you say you’re leaving home, ’cause you want to be alone

Ain’t it funny how you feel when you’re finding out it’s
real.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the Waltons and the colored balloons
You can’t be twenty on sugar mountain
Though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon
You’re leaving there too soon

Listen Here




Moral of the Story: Their children will be forced to leave for the military or for a job in the city in order to survive due to the rural economic effects caused by Globalization.
