Fleetwood Mac - Merry Go Round Lyrics




When I first met you baby, I didn't even know your name
Yes, when I first met you babe, I didn't even know your name
I was feeling so low on the ground
Bad luck and evil women was to blame

I never realized just how sweet and kind one woman can be
Yes, I never realized, people, just how sweet and kind one woman can be
Yes, but when I looked in your eyes
Yeah, I knew true love had come to me
Yeah

[break]

Take my hand, baby, now, you hold it tight and don't let go
Take my hand, now, hold it tight and don't let go
Yes, 'cause our love is like a merry go round
And 'round forever it's gonna go

  2. Lucy Van Zant

    I'm here because of motley crue

  3. Christopher Webb

    Wonderful playing/vocal..a lesson on how to 'fill' with only three musicians..

  4. Rev Eddro

    this is the 1st white boy blues album I brought...………...in 1969

  5. Marshall333

    His patience on delivering breathtaking blues licks are incredible. Most musician's fill up all that space but he lets the listener focus their attention back and forth following the vocals, drums and bass.

  6. jordan390a

    Don't mind me...I'm just Searching for Madge....!

  7. normskimonger

    Middle Earth club, Covent Garden 1968............then slept in a doorway in New Bond street afterwards.

  8. semvarp

    The blues-lp I grow up with...made myself a brass-slide and started practising slide at 12 years old

  9. Mark Kelly

    This is closer to real blues than anything I have heard from Britain.

  10. Gary Hart

    Peter Green the best blues,ever

    evelyn johnson

    nobody else even close

    helen purser

    Oh yes!

  11. Christopher Webb

    Great stuff..always seems to end too soon..so laid back it seems Mick Fleetwood is about to fall over saved only by the walking bass of McVie..bought this album around the time it was released just after the Beano EC album and thought these are exciting times which they were, and due to the musicianship, still are..

  12. micheal green

    The tone gets you every listen..Green knew the power of space between phrases too..he had all the great touches and feel of the great bluesmen..he had it in his fingers and his soul.

  13. Frank Olsson

    One of the best blues albums ever made! Peter Green was God of the blues!

    Gayle Hyde

    When I was 16 this was the album that saw me down checken' out the latest music at festival in Sydney 1969..
    Blew me away........ still does.!!!!!!!!!!!

    Frank Olsson

    Yeah, you´re right, it´s still one of the beat made album in blues-rock..

  14. Reginald Colbourne

    this the answer to the k-rock kfx?

  15. Phillip Buscema

    Love this song.

  16. Stephen James

    Darius Mallon, I think you'll find that it was Bob Brunning who played bass on this recording, rather than John McVie, who had not yet committed to the band. But I am open to correction!

    Austin Wagner

    As far as the record itself says, Brunning only plays Bass on Long Grey Mare. All other tracks with Bass are credited to McVie

    Gayle Hyde

    I think that may be incorrect....... Bob Brunning played bass on 'Long Grey Mare'... but that was it .. All the same .. fucking excellent........

  17. Austin Wagner

    the perfect blues guitarist

  18. Gert Jan Kuiper

    Peter, John & Mick nailed this on November 22, 1967.

  19. gHSTS & gUITARS

    Really digging the vibes of these tunes!

  20. srducko

    if you dont FEEL something with this performance you are....dead inside

  21. micheal green

    The feel of sound and the economy of space between notes are just so telling....the flow of a great blues player...that unique sound...Tones and vibrato are like fingerprints...Peter Green had that great touch,,and the abilty to let a note flow..or cut it off to great effect...the solo is a masterclass...he was just timeless in those days.

    Slim Hekal

    Tone, delivery,soul,emotion.

    Gayle Hyde

    Mate you are sooo spot on. No explanation required when your talkin' bout a genius.I've been captiviated by this blok for 50 years.... no fucking bullshit...

    Gayle Hyde

    Forget Jesus - here is something real...........

    evelyn johnson

    exactly

    Howlin' Donster

    I hear what you are saying .. Between the 2 Vaughan Brothers Stevie has been deified but I always preferred Jimmy's Classic blues riffs , he got more out less and he had so much sustain.. My friends call me crazy but Jimmy and Anson Funderburg play plenty it is just that less is more for them..

  22. Jeroen Sluis

    Is er een tab versie op het net?

    Darius Mallon

    no but I can make one for you

    J Alting

    Beste Jeroen , er is een site "" ultimate guitar tabs"" daar staat het op .

    abrigospardos

    I'm probably late in saying this, but there's a really good tab of this song, together with a backing track and discussion of PG's style, in the book "In Session with Peter Green" ISBN 1-859-09-645X

  23. Manuel T

    nice :)

  24. Peter Williams

    The live versions are great BUT this is the definitive version of this song and ranks with any blues tune ever recorded including Johnson, Freddie or BB King, or EC. 
    In the sixties nobody played better and few have come close since.
    He's simply the best.

    Gayle Hyde

    50 years for me..... pure genius...Beethoven of Blues.........

    Peter Williams

    And, of course, he wrote it too. How many white guitarists from the 60's wrote their own blues songs. Not many!

    Bryan birdchest Callen

    I'm loving this stuff I'm stuck on Billy gibbons though!

  25. 会沢朝光

    LIKE!!!m(_ _)m!

  26. David Noble

    Sounds like billy gibbons vocals

    Gayle Hyde

    Wrong way 'round mate!!!!!!!

    Howlin' Donster

    Well said...

    Barney Fife

    That’s why the slow bluesy average song playing is....meh...ZZ TOP’s best songs are off Eliminator and Fleetwood is Rumors. Write songs people can get into. These riffs are the sleepy and boring sounds of an average blues band.

  27. alanbrokenspoke

    peter green gets you all the time

  28. Ade Rhodes Guitar Lessons

    Yes probably.

  29. Davidmcfarlaneblues.

    I saw them three times in the '60's....best British blues band ever!!!

  30. Davidmcfarlaneblues.

    Justin Beiber fans.

  31. A.R.H.

    Such a sexy song! <3 love it!

    Christopher Webb

    Sexy!..interesting interpretation..

    CoolBuzzTastyWaves

    A.R.H. I concur

  32. Ade Rhodes Guitar Lessons

    2 people have clicked dislike!!! Er...why?

    helen purser

    they got no taste.

  33. zarke49

    How can you not like this song????? Must be two envious people who just cant appreciate a masterpiece! This is Peter Green at his best, just wonderful! I miss the blues band Fleetwood Mac!

  34. Greg Deyermenjian

    And...what a singer!!!!!

    evelyn johnson

    I could listen to him all day and still beg for more, singing or instrumentals

  35. Stan Culver

    2 dislikes are Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page.

    Jacob Smith

    Jimmy page was a big fan of peter green

  36. 0022eddy

    hot dam this is music

  37. Craig07L

    Somebody could tell you a person's name before you go introduce yourself and 'meet them'. I know all the names of Led Zeppelin, but never met any of them :-)

  38. 1251alexRR

    @strangeones4 nope.

  39. 1251alexRR

    I love this song. Peter Green is awesome. Hes like a mini Clapton. haha. I love it.

    monica bella

    1251alexRR Clapton who ???

    evelyn johnson

    Clapton not in the same ballpark, Green vastly superior

    Bryan birdchest Callen

    @evelyn johnson green wouldn't agree with that one bit, Clapton just peaked in his early twenties, his work on disreali gears is nothing short of a masterpiece.
