Byrds
Wasn't Born To Follow

(Roger McGuinn)
Happiness hit me on the first day that we met
She was sittin' in my kitchen with a face I can't forget
She was lookin' in my direction and she calling with her eyes
I was trying to do and interview and telling them all lies
Last year in the summer with a tiffany lamp over her head
They were ask me what I thought about the 50's rock'n'roll
Then they got into a limousine and fell into a hole
I moved into the kitchen and I quickly fell in love
The warden came along and asked me what I was thinking of
Last year in the summer with a tiffany lamp over her head
Well, I grabbed her by the hand and with a few things I could
The warden said your leaving well, you've better leave for good
I made it to Tasmania to buy a devil dog
Well, we met a handsome prince who turned into a frog
Last year in the summer with a tiffany lamp over her head
Instrumental (Electric Guitar)
Now we're living out in Malibu the ocean by our side
Laying in the sunshine drifting with the tide
Well, happiness is hit me on the first day that we met
She was sittin' in my kitchen and a face I can't forget
Last year in the summer with a tiffany lamp over her head
Over her head

Oh I'd rather go and journey where the diamond crescent's flowing and
Run across the valley beneath the sacred mountain and
Wander through the forest
Where the trees have leaves of prisms and break the light in colors
That no one knows the names of

And when it's time I'll go and wait beside a legendary fountain
Till I see your form reflected in it's clear and jewelled waters
And if you think I'm ready
You may lead me to the chasm where the rivers of our vision
Flow into one another

I will want to dive beneath the white cascading waters
She may beg, she may plead, she may argue with her logic
And then she'll know the things I lived
That really have no value in the end she will surely know
I wasn't born to follow

Written by Carol King and Gerry Goffin
Oh I'd rather go and journey
Where the diamond crescent's glowing and
Run across the valley
Beneath the sacred mountain
And Wander through the forest
Where the trees have leaves of prisms
And break the light in colors
That no-one knows the names of
And when it's time I'll go and wait
Beside a legendary fountain
Till I see your form reflected
In it's clear and jeweled waters
And if you think I'm ready
You may lead me to the chasm
Where the rivers of our vision
Flow into one another
I will watch her dive beneath
The white cascading waters
She may beg she may plead
She may argue with her logic
And then mention all the things I'll lose
That really have no value
In the end she will surely know
I wasn't born to follow
