The Byrds – Lover Of The Bayou lyrics
(B. Rafkin)
When I was young
I'd go down by the river
Just about a mile from my home
A million miles from everyone
My eyes could see older
As my ears could hear your song
Oh, to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you
Oh, little boys are strange
No one knows they have magic
I kept it in my pocket
Concealed from everyone
But I climbed the highest tree
To sing a bird my song
Oh, to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
And never needed anyone but you
Instrumental (Harmonica)
We moved to the city
I said I wouldn't minds
Thought you'd stay inside me
It's easy when you're young
But as we rode away
I knew you were gone
Oh, to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you
Oh, to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you
Oh, to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you
