Neil Young has paid tribute to his ex-wife Pegi who passed away last week from cancer.

Neil posted his lyrics to ‘Such A Woman’, a song about Pegi from his 1992 ‘Harvest Moon’ album. The post concluded with Neil writing “Thanks Pegi, for being such a wonderful mother to our children. You live inside of them and the many you have touched”.

The lyrics of the song go “You are such a woman to me, And I love you, Our live will live, Until the end of time”.
