Hurdy Gurdy Man – Donovan

24 Jun

Hurdy Gurdy Man – Donovan

“Hurdy Gurdy Man” with extra verse from “Live in Japan 1973” album.

Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I opened my eyes to take a peek
To find that I was by the sea
Gazing with tranquility

‘Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
He comes singing the songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
He comes singing the songs of love

“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang

Histories of ages past
Hung in light and shadows cast
Down through all eternity
The crying of humanity

‘Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
He comes singing the songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
He comes singing the songs of love

“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang

Extra verse (written by George Harrison and Donovan)

When truth gets very deep
Beneath a thousand years of sleep
Time demands a turn around
And once again the truth is found

Awakening the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Who comes singing the songs of love
Here come the Hurdy Gurdy Man
And his singing the songs of love

“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang
“Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy”, he sang.
