James Gang - Mystery Lyrics




I knew what it was to be young once
But now I'm growin' so old
And for a time I had forgotten
But now I think about being young again

Strange old feeling is a-tugging on me
It's pulling me by the sleeve
Calling me back to something I let go
So far behind and so long ago

Warm and wild springs near my old home
Can your mystery hold me?
I'd like to share your secret again
Your body could soothe me

I knew what it was to be in love once
But now I'm growin' so cold
And for a time I had forgotten
But now I think about feeling love again

Strange old feeling is a-tugging on me
It's pulling me by the sleeve
Calling me back to something I let go
So far behind and so long ago

Warm and wild springs near my old home
Can your mystery hold me?
I'd like to share your secret again
Your body could soothe me

    Jeffrey Colvin

    It was Summer of ‘77 when I heard this wonderful song and album. God I miss those times...

  17. Kris Trznadel

  18. fifty2dogs

    TOMMY BOLIN GAVE HIS ALL RIP MAN

  19. Paul Reed

    One of the most beautiful songs ever written!

  20. Luke Piro

    ...... This song is F+$^ing AWESOME!!!! I've never heard it before!!

  21. Vince ReDavid

    I’m doing the best I can to keep this magic alive!!!

  22. TheSanityInspector

    This reminds me of something that Greg Lake might have written for Emerson Lake and Palmer.

  23. Dan Northrup

    master peice!

  24. TIM POOL

    Great song!!!!

  25. Judy Rabishaw

    Oh the memories.........…. bitter sweet and  brilliant

  26. Vinnie Vintage

    Haunting. Tommy Bolin's true talent were his vocals. His interest in integrating Jazz and really all forms of music with rock was groundbreaking for such a young man.

    Alexis Caroline

    He was mature well beyond his years. The fact he wrote this type of music as a 19-25 year old kid says so much. He’s so fucking underrated it pisses me off.

    Lee Hendon

    Roy Kenner is doing the VOX here......

  27. Audrey

    One of the sexiest songs every made. Thanks for the upload.

  28. Ilgaz KURUYAZICI

    Bari bir de Türkçe yorum olsun... Tommy Bolin ne yazık ki erken gidenlerden... gitmeden de Deep Purple ‘ı çok enteresan bir çizgiye çekmiş, ardında nefis işler bırakan bir adam. Bu vesile ile Come Taste The Band’e de selam yollayalım.

  29. Lon Chaneys Lover

    Too the love of my life, from 17 too 22 all those years I regret not making her mine.

  30. The Weeping Willow

    RIP Tommy Bolin...your forever 25

    TIM POOL

    And a faster of the strings...

    Dennis Herreid

    Sitting here in years. Wonderful wonderful song!
    My God I love this album!

    Dennis Herreid

    In Tears....not years....

  31. glenn murray

    HOW OLD ARE WE !

  32. glenn murray

    no its not TOMMY ITS Roy !-SONG IS REALITY !

    luc cote

    Nope Tommy .

  33. Ken Kozma

    I'm 64 and never heard this until yesterday. I'm used to Joe Walsh. I found this and I just keep playing it. Such a BEAUTIFUL SONG. It's like I want others to hear it cause their missing out.

    TheSanityInspector

    Look up "Run, Run, Run" from the Domenic Troiano version of The James Gang. It is also very lovely.

    B C

    Are not familiar with the whole album, James Gang Bang? Bolin is fantastic!

    Floyd Gillis

    I loved this when I was 16, I live it still at 62

    Floyd Gillis

    Tommy left a lot of great work behind. Check out Hello Again, after a while.

    Joseph Spott

    You need the whole album . You'll love " Alexis".

  34. glenn murray

    TIMELESS!

  35. Thom Thumbe

    Man! How time flies! I wore out an 8-track tape of this album while dragging main street. After a major breakup back in those days, this song brought both tears and solace to my wounded heart.

    Joseph Spott

    It helped me survive a divorce at 22 yrs old.

  36. YaTina

    Zauberhaft!

  37. TheWeedMan4220

    im only 16 and I enjoy this song

    Floyd Gillis

    I was 16 when I saw Tommy Bolin and The James Gang play. This is a hidden wonder.

    Floyd Gillis

    I was 16 when I first heard it. I am 62 now

  38. YaTina

    Es ist traumhaft schön!!!

  39. Metin İlke

    I knew what it was to be young once
    But now I'm growin' so old

    It's pulling me by the sleeve
    Calling me back to something I let go
    So far behind and so long ago

  50. Jason Blackstead

    Now, almost 40 years later, this is still fresh. The difference is the depth of memory it brings. The song, itself, being one of my best. Thanks for posting.

    koaguilds

    Tommy sang this.

    Colt Walker

    Definitely, Tommy, there's no mistaking his voice.

    luc cote

    Oh ya definitely Tommy singing this . Great voice and great guitarist .

    Paul Millea

    Love this song - too bad not better known- saw Zephyr when then they played Rapid City SD back in the day - what a loss when Tommy Bolin died at such a young age. This song achingly hints at what he might have given us. Glad he left is this.

  53. Bu Kyoung Bae

    그는 천재다.!

  54. Corvair Lane

    Such a beautiful song. I hope that others who would enjoy it find this gem!  James Gang - Mystery

    fifty2dogs

    feel like we do

    Herman Helmich

    Corvair Lane I did today, lovely

  55. Philip Walden

    I 1st got this album in 1974 & it BLEW me away at age 20 and still does almost 40 years later! Alexis and Mystery on James Gang Bang just was the # 1 & 2 songs Tommy wrote and sang while adding strings to the back ground playing and the softness of his voice proved beyond a shadow of a doubt we have a true star in the sky!Only 4 days after my Daughter Heather was born Tommy past away leaving us way too soon & tears still come to my eyes every time an artist of this caliber takes his life away!

    John Vichich

    The rif on Alexis is played by GOD.

    flyingburritobro68

    Philip Walden Bolin only sings Alexis on this album. Roy Kenner sings this track and the others. Bolin only sang one song on Miami as well - Spanish Lover

    Joseph Spott

    I hear you brother. I was there also.

  56. glenn murray

    SINCE I WAS 16-NOW MORE THAN EVER!

  57. Judithann Barton

    Thank you! Brings back strange old memories!

  58. dudeer mananer

    I heard this song on 8 track when I was 7 years old, the 8 track was not labeled and I could never find this tune until 35 years later! As great as it was when I was young!

  59. tamarahndrsn

    I used to have this album, great tune.

  60. chickawawa0506

    thanx for the upload :) The first dream I had in months, I woke up with a dream of this song, it was so vivid. The ending could be much longer - it's just beautiful...i think Bolin's best.

  61. Dan Helmbrecht

    Great song...beautiful.

  62. rita litwin-o'brien
