Cortez The Killer Lyrics - Neil Young

Review The Song (5)

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects
gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
sponsored links
And the men stood
straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them
to the flatlands
But they died along the way
And they built up
with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer.

What a great song, As soon as I listened first minute of this song I felt in love with it. I don't know how I lived life before hearing this tunes.
Beside All Pink Floyd songs, It's now one of my fave.
Just spend some time on this line: in his hall he often wondered 'bout secret of the world.

Great | Reviewer: Sina | 9/2/07

Now no one can say that neil young can't play guitar... todays "guitarists" should listen and learn from this piece of art..

JUST... AMAZING... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/11/05

This song is just so amazing. It's insane. All the guitar just makes u forget about everything else when you listen to it. It could go on for hours and you would never get bored of it. But this is only a small sample of Neil Young's genious. He is truly a music lengend.
