 Thrasher : Rust Never Sleeps : Neil Young.

 D G D
 D D+C# D+B D G A
 D G D
 D D+C# D+B D G A
 They were hiding behind hay bales,

           Giii            D        
 they were planting in the full moon

                D+C#     D+B     D         Giii Av
 They had given all they had for something new  

 But the light of day was on them

            Giii              D     
 They could see the thrashers coming

               D+C#       D+B             Giii Av
 and the water shone like diamonds in the dew. 

 Giii           Av                  D                Giii 
 And I was just getting up, hit the road before it's light

                    Av          D   DM7 D DM7  
 Tryin' to catch an hour on the sun        ....

        Giii                Av         
 When I saw those thrashers rollin' by,

         D         D+C#      D+B 
 Looking more than two lanes wide

       G or Em7                       Av 
 I was  feelin like my day had just begun

 Where the eagle glides ascending there's an
 ancient river bending
 Down the timeless gorge of changes
 where sleeplessness awaits
 I searched out my companions, they were lost 
 in crystal canyons
 When the aimless blade of science slashed
 the pearly gates
 It was then I knew I'd had enough, burned my 
 credit card for fuel
 Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
 With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
 and my suitcase in my hand
 How I lost my friends I still don't understand
 They had the best selection, they were
 poisoned with protection
 There was nothing that they needed, they hd
 nothing left to find
 They were lost in rock formations or became
 park bench mutations
 On the sidewalks and in the stations
 they were waiting, waiting
 So I got bored and left them there, they were 
 just deadweight to me
 It's better on the road wothout that load
 Brought back the time when I was eight or nine
 I was watchin' my mama's T.V., it was that great
 Grand Canyon rescue episode
 Where the vulture glides descending on 
 an asphalt highay bending
 Thru libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
 Down the windy alls of friendship to the rose
 clipped by the bullwhip
 The motel of lost companions waits with 
 heated pool and bar
 But me I'm not stopping there, got my own row left to hoe
 Just another mine in the field of time
 When the thrashers come and I'm stuck in the sun
 like dinosaurs in shrines
 But I'll know the time has come to give what's mine 

 the run from D to D+C to D+B (Bm7) to D goes like:
