Subject: Lyr Add: THE GODS WERE ANGRY WITH ME (Jim Reeves)
From: Jim Dixon

This was requested in an old thread, but since several songs were being discussed in that thread, I thought it best to start a new one.

From the recording at YouTube:


THE GODS WERE ANGRY WITH ME
Written by Roma Mackintosh, Bill Mackintosh, and Watt Watkins
[Some sources credit Herman L Watkins and Ruth Oma Wilkinson]
As sung by Jim Reeves

The gods were angry with me for loving you.
The gods were angry with me because they knew
I stood at heaven's portal and that was too high
For any mortal such as I.
So they took down the sun; the skies were gray.
Then the howling winds took you away,
And there was nothing I could do because I knew
The gods were angry with me for loving you.

SPOKEN: Once upon a time when our love was new,
And I was happy with the love that I've found,
Then the gods of the sun, the moon and the stars looked down
And saw me there with you, and they sent my dream world crashing to the ground.
(It was because the gods were angry with me.)

REPEAT FIRST VERSE.

(And so they took down the sun; the skies were gray.
And then the howling winds took you away)
And there was nothing I could do for I could see
It was because the gods were angry with me.

[From the album "Distant Drums" (1966), which has been reissued, combined with "Up through the Years," BMG International CD 662701, 2004.
