Dawning
Jay & The Americans Lyrics


I woke up this morning, the sun's shining brightly
And loving each leaf on each tree
Remembering the way that your lips touched mine lightly
Yes, your love is dawning on me
Wo oh ah oh oh ah oh oh ah oh oh
Yes, your love is dawning on me

Flowers are bloomin', the robin is singing
And my heart is in harmony
The sweet things you said have all to my head
Oh yes, your love is dawning on me
Wo oh ah oh oh ah oh oh ah oh oh
Yes, your love is dawning on me

Perfume and roses and blue skies and laughter
The world is a great place to be
What used to be sadness has turned into gladness
Yes, your love is dawning on me
Wo oh ah oh oh ah oh oh ah oh oh
Yes, your love is dawning on me

Great story, thanks for commenting...I always liked "Dawning" better, even though "She Cried" is also a great song.

Thank you soooooooooo very much for posting this song....... It has been about 30 years since I last heard it and I have been looking for it that long..

Such a happy song. Great memories as a teenager in love with every pretty girl in town but always at a distance. The best would come though. My "Dawning" came later but not too late.

This is  the reason that 45rpm's were worth collecting. In 1962, I just flipped the record over and heard this fantastic song. Through the years, this song should have had more exposure as an oldie. Great 2 sided record.

Splendid... I just feel that this song is great, better than the a-side. And I just got myself listening to this over and over by xmas time.

Roger Keck

Yep. Unmistakable. It's Grieg's ubiquitous "MORNING", but with a beat.

Tony Powers

yup. be well. t.
