Helpless Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This song was written by Neil Young and recorded on the CSNY 1970's album called Deja Vu. Neil's group Crazy Horse recorded the song first in 1969. Teach Your Children and Woodstock were both released as singles from the album but not Helpless.

Here are the chords you'll need for this song:

  • D
  • A
  • G

You can also use the Dsus2 which is the open bottom e-string when playing the D chord and also you can finger the b-string on the A chord which forms an Asus.

This song has a simple pattern for the rhythm and that is a down down up down up down up and repeat down down up down up down up as you move between the chords.

Vocally like many Neil Young songs, this one is much too high for me so I'm on the low end of this key, so don't sing it this way unless you want to.

A you'll see in the middle of the song I've inserted a picking break that is essentially the melody of the song.


Helpless Lyrics


There is a town in north Ontario
With dream comfort memory to spare
And in my mind - I still need a place to go
All my changes were there


Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes - leave us


Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked - and tied across the door
Baby sing with me somehow

Break - D-A-G … D-A-G

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes - leave us


Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked - and tied across the door
Baby sing with me somehow
