Joni Mitchell - Urge For Going
I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town It hovered in a frozen sky then it gobbled summer down When the sun turns traitor cold and all the trees are shivering in a naked row I get the urge for going But I never seem to go I get the urge for going When the meadow grass is turning brown Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in I had me a man in summertime He had summer-colored skin And not another girl in town My darling's heart could win But when the leaves fell on the ground Bully winds came around Pushed them face down in the snow He got the urge for going And I had to let him go He got the urge for going When the meadow grass was turning brown Summertime was falling down and winter was closing in Now the warriors of winter They gave a cold triumphant shout And all that stays is dying And all that lives is gettin' out See the geese in chevron flight Flapping and racing on before the snow They got the urge for going And they got the wings so they can go They get the urge for going When the meadow grass is turning brown Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in I'll ply the fire with kindling now I'll pull the blankets up to my chin I'll lock the vagrant winter out and I'll bolt my wanderings in I'd like to call back summertime Have her stay for just another month or so But she's got the urge for going So I guess she'll have to go She gets the urge for going When the meadow grass is turning brown All her empire's falling down And winter's closing in. And I get the urge for going When the meadow grass is turning brown And summertime is falling down. © 1966; Siquomb Publishing CompanyThis photo was shot on film.
