This is the version on Greatest Hits, Vol. Whoo-ee, ride me high Tomorrow's the day That my bride's a-gonna come Whoo-ee, are we gonna fly Down into the You Aint Going Nowhere chair. Genghis Khan an' his brother Don Could not keep on keepin' on We'll climb that bridge after it's gone After we're way past it.
Whoo-ee, ride me high Tomorrow's the day My bride's a-gonna come Whoo-ee, are we gonna fly Down into the easy chair, You Aint Going Nowhere. Buy me some rings an' a gun that sings A flute that toots an' a bee that stings A sky that cries an' a bird that flies A fish that walks an' a dog that talks.
Blue Sky. One of my favorites! Flag rachelxoxo on May 12, General Comment To me the lyrics for the greatest hits version are more interesting because of the personal references. It is documented that that there was rivalry between Mcguinn and Dylan because of the vast amount of his songs that the Byrds covered.
The Byrds changed the tempo and style of his melodies for a more commercial performance You Aint Going Nowhere takes away all true meaning of the songs. There's also the reference to the "Gunga Din" film. Originally it was a poem by Rudyard Kipling. In the film he is a Hindu slave who wants to join the Brittish Army. Gunga Din works for them faithfully but never recieves much respect in return.
For his last act before he dies he saves the entire army by sounding a bugle to warn them of enemies planning an ambush. As he is laid to rest the colonel makes him a corporal of the regiment and speaks some of the words from Kiplings original poem.
Hello hardfrain, I agree with you for the different both versions of "You ain't going nowhere" that are so different that I have thought there was a mistake on the title of my CD "Best of the Byrds". I was searching throughout on the web for understand.
You are alone to tell that. I prefer the second version of the Byrds I am not a fanatic of pedal steel guitar I play guitar and I would like playing it but I have only the old score version Do you know where can I find the new lyrics of this song?
Is it the same score and only tempo change? Thanks for your answers Laurent Flag lolocx on November 25, The reference to McGuinn in that line of the song is due to him getting that lyric wrong on the Byrds version of the song McGuinn sings "Pack up your money, Pick up your tent", when it should be "Pick up your money, Pack up your tent". Anyone's guess. The chorus is definitely referring to a final premarital fling. The verses sound like he is making rhymes up on the spot.
Flag JohnnyLivewire on January 21, A difference in interpretation is just that. It's another artist showing what the song means to You Aint Going Nowhere. Nor is "All Along the Watchtower" drained of meaning by Jimi Hendrix; in fact, he greatly expands the meaning by describing musically what the words do lyrically. Dylan was a poet.
A host of performers took his raw lyrics and put them to real music. Likely he would have remained a local, underground New York phenomenon much longer than he did without the help of radio-friendly renditions by true musicians.
Flag GatoCat on April 03, General Comment i think this song projects a struggle with getting by in day-to-day life. General Comment Best song on the album. My Opinion Is there somebody that knows where is it possible to find the new lyrics that Harddainfallin told.
I prefer very much the second version of the Byrds. Rate These Lyrics. Log in now to add this track to your mixtape!
