ATF: Coming About

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Turn, Turn, Turn
The Byrds
To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose
Under Heaven

A time to be born
A time to die
A time to plant
A time to reap
A time to kill
A time to heal
A time to laugh
A time to weep

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose
Under Heaven

A time to build up
A time to break down
A time to dance
A time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose
Under Heaven

A time of love
A time of hate
A time of war
A time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose
Under Heaven

A time to gain
A time to lose
A time to rend
A time to sew
A time for love
A time for hate
A time for peace
I swear it's not too late



Come Again
Damn Yankees
I was a loner
Cruisin' with the wind
I wasn't looking
When you pulled me in
I had to leave you
Like I always did
You knew damn well
I'd come again

Now I'm falling
Where I've never been
My resistance
Is wearing thin
Somewhere in the distance
Like a long lost friend
Whoa whoa whoa
Yeah yeah yeah
Lord
Here I come again

Yeah yeah

It's been so long since I've seen you girl
Swear I've been around the world
Every room is an empty space
In the darkness I see your face
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa

When I finally get my hands on you
Tell you what I'm gonna do
Lay you down
Strip you bare
Make love to you 'til the morning comes around

I wasn't looking
When you pulled me in
Whoa whoa whoa
Yeah yeah yeah
Lord
Here I come again

Come again
Come again
I say Lord

I wasn't looking
When you pulled me in
Whoa whoa whoa
Yeah yeah yeah
Lord
Here I come again
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whao

I wasn't looking
When you pulled me in
Whoa whoa whoa
Yeah yeah yeah
Lord
Here I come again

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Jenny!!! Ted Nugent sure showed that there is something rather wrong with him when he would talk about how much he hated Come Again and High Enough.

  8. Loved the Byrds. Was it McGuinn who had those cool, tiny, rectangular shades? and the 12-string guitar sound made them unique. Was I here?

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Mike!!! I am not sure about the shades, but it was definitely his 12-string licks that made such a resounding impression upon the music scene (even to this day).
