Lyrics

Song on a May Morning
(sung by Berkeley Boy Jim)

As I walk through the brown fields of my mind
I can see the memories as they float like leaves to the ground
And I pick the yellow flowers that I find
They are dead but unlike memories the flowers make no sound

Thoughts of the days with you
Thoughts of the nights with you

And the fields through which I walk will turn to green from brown
With Spring my mind will soon forget those thoughts that I touch
And my feet will feel too soon the moistness of the ground
Memories gone I’ll love again but never quite as much

Thoughts of the days with you
Thoughts of the nights with you

You have gone away
We laugh and love in the grass
New love’s here to stay
You’re lost in the past

See no more of you
Think no more of you
