Subject: A Younger Girl Keeps Hanging Around...
From: WyoWoman
Date: 23 Sep 99 - 11:21 AM

Looking for a song that includes the following...


A younger girl keeps hanging around
One of the loveliest I've ever found
Blowing my mind, breaking my heart
Somebody help me 'fore I fall apart


I, I got to get going,
I know I shouldn't
Stay here and love you more than I do

Come up the years, come up the years
And love me, love me...

(The friend I knew who sang it substituted "Younger man..." which is my intention, but I have no idea who recorded the song nor how the rest of it goes...)

Thanks for your assistance,

ww

I can help a little. The song is "Come up the years" by the Jefferson Airplane. Don't know which album, or where you can find the lyrics/music, though.

Hi, WW -
I found it at Lyrics World
-Joe Offer-

COME UP THE YEARS
recorded by Jefferson Airplane
album: Jefferson Airplane Takes Off

I ought to get going
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
Cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years, come up the years
And love me, love me love me

A younger girl keeps hanging around
One of the loveliest I've ever found
Blowin' my mind, stealin' my heart
Somebody help me 'fore I fall apart.

I ought to get going
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
Cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years, come up the years
And love me, love me love me

The things she's doing keep turning me on
And I've been happy to go right along
I know it's time that I said goodbye
I know I can't leave no matter how hard I try.

I ought to get going
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
Cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years, come up the years
And love me, love me love me

Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A Younger Girl (Lovin' Spoonful)

Here's the song I thought you were looking for, before I saw the other messages. Ah, it brings back memories. Merri was a senior in high school, long hair, long legs, pretty eyes, intelligent. But alas, I was far too old, being a freshman in college (and in a Catholic seminary, to boot). It made her cry, but I felt honor-bound to push her aside. The song still makes me think of her. A year's difference in age doesn't seem like anything now. Our perspectives certainly change, don't they?
-Joe Offer-

                               "Younger Girl"
(John Sebastian)(recorded by Lovin' Spoonful)

Intro:

(autoharp w/bass):

Dm Em F G
/ / / / / / / /

Verse 1:

Dm Em F G
She's one of those girls who seems to come in the Spring
Dm Em F G
One look in her eyes and you forget everything
Bb
You had ready to say
G7
And I saw her today, yeah...

Chorus:

C G7 C
A younger girl keeps a-rollin' 'cross my mind
(C) D7 G7
No matter how much I try, I can't seem to leave her memory behind
Am
I remember her eyes, soft dark and brown
D7
Said she'd never been in trouble, or even in town
C G7 C
A younger girl keeps a-rollin' 'cross my mind

[repeat lines 2-5 of chorus, w/guitar solo replacing lines 3-4]

Verse 2:

And should I hang around, acting like her brother
In a few more years, they'd call us right for each other
And why
If I wait I'll just die, yeah...

[repeat chorus]

[repeat verse 1; fade]


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

Hey Joe! You don't happen to have the words and tablature for Rain on the Roof from Lovin' Spoonies do you? One of my favorites!

Joe -- I know what you mean. I had a sort-of boyfriend when I was in high school, but we just couldn't pursue the relationship because he was a sophomore and I was a senior. He wore English Leather and I lusted so mightily for that kid. I bought some English Leather and put it on my TEDDY BEAR so I could smell it every night as i was going to sleep.

Nowadays, two years is nuttin. (Of course, so is English Leather...)

Hi, LEJ - check the Search Engine at olga.net (click) and you'find there's still a lot available. Click for your song, but all they have is chords. OLGA is probably the best source for TAB. If they ain't got it, you'll be hard-put to find it anywhere.

If anyone has got the chords, guitar tab or any other musical notation for the Jefferson Airplane song "Come up the years", I would be very happy to get it -- and the same for "Harp Tree Lament", recorded on "Baron Von Tollbooth & The Chrome Nun", Paul Kantner & Grace Slick

An interesting origin of the melody of the Lovin' Spoonful's 1965 song a "Younger Girl" was based on Cannon's Jug Stompers' "Prison Wall Blues."

It can be heard here

Thanks to Peace for the site.
