"Just a season" by The Byrds, one of my favorite 45s!



The Byrds recorded some great songs, such as Bob Dylan's "Mr Tambourine Man" and "Turn, turn turn".

They were: Jim McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke.

Crosby went on to form Crosby, Stills and Nash.  I think that Michael Clarke sang with The New Christy Minstrels, a very popular folk group.

McGuinn enjoyed a solo career.  He is a great guitar player!

They also recorded "Just a season".   It was not a big hit but I liked it a lot.   It's one of those 45s in my box!

Here is the video:

Written by Roger McGuinn and Jacques Levy

"If all my days was hills to climb and circles without reason
If all I was was passing time, my life was just a season
Dares and dreams and silly schemes and fillies running freely
I was young and no song was sung that didn't sound appealing
I'd have my fun with a shy girl and maybe hop a train
And I'd look back at her standing in the rain
Dirty hands and root beer stands and money like a river
Making deals to see how it feels to get more than you're giving
I'd have my fun with a gamblin man and bluff him with my face
And it's drinks for everybody in the place
If all my days was hills to climb and circles without reason
If all I was was passing time my life was just a season
If all my days was hills to climb and circles without reason
If all I was was passing time my life was just a season
Shouting crowds and mummer's shrouds and people going crazy
Always said what was in their heads it surely was amazing
I had my fun in the bull ring and never got a scar
It really wasn't hard to be a star
If all my days was hills to climb and circles without reason
If all I was was passing time my life was just a season"
