Mr. Tambourine Man
The Byrds Lyrics


Hey, Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm going to
Hey, Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you

Take me for a trip upon your magic swirling ship
All my senses have been stripped
And my hands can't feel to grip and my toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wandering

I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade
Cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it

Hey, Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm going to
Hey, Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm goin' to
Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you

Take me for a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
All my senses have been stripped
And my hands can't feel to grip
And my toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin'

I'm ready to go anywhere I'm ready for to fade
On to my own parade cast your dancin' spell my way
I promise to go under it

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm goin' to
Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I'll come followin' you

@bill291212 I agree! The 4th verse of this song is the best, not sure why they didn't include in their cover.

And take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time
Far past the frozen leaves
The haunted frightened trees
Out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
With one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate
Driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

David Byrne of Talking Heads said in an interview that this version of the song is what got him interested in music as a kid.

You can always remember that one song that got you hooked on music as a kid hey!? 😊 it's like everyone can remember the person they lost their virginity to! Same with music... you can always remember that song that you lost your "music virginity" to!!!

the American response against the British Invasion

Allan Bloxham

Why is it so hard for so many Americans to give credit to other nationalities who excel ? British invasion, my ass ! It's like calling Elvis the American pimp.

@J-London M Sorry, Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain. Northern Ireland and Great Britain form The United Kingdom.

@TomatoShips, and more influential than the Byrds. Including on the bands you're referring to.

TomatoShips

​@RWWF20 - I didn't say The Beatles weren't influential. And Oasis sucks so who cares. You can't ever mention the Stone Roses without people bringing up Oasis.
