David Crosby – Urge For Going lyrics

Written by: Joni Mitchell, performd by Crosby & Nash

When I awoke today and found the frost had perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky and gobbled summer down
And when the wind turns traitor cold
And shivering trees are standing naked in a row
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go

And I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
And the summertime is falling down
And winter's closing in

I had a girl in summertime with summer colored skin
And not another man in town my darling's heart could win
But when the leaves fell tremblin' down
Bully winds did rub their faces in the snow
She got the urge for goin', and I had to let her go...

And I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
And the summertime is falling down
And winter's closing in

Now the warriors of winter give a cold triumphant shout
All that stays is dying, all that lives is getting out
See the geese in chevron flight
Flapping and a-racing off before the snow
They got the urge for going and they've got the wings to go...

And I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
And the summertime is falling down
And winter's closing in
