Lovin' Spoonful, The - Butchie's Tune Lyrics




Don't give me a place for my memories to stay
Don't show me an end or a light to find the way
I ain't got time for the things on your mind
And I'm leaving you today
On my way

Please don't you cry when the time to part has come
It's not for what you've said or anything that you've done
I've got to go anywhere any time
And I'm leaving, gone today
On my way
I'm going home

Please don't stick around to see when I'm feeling low
Don't pass the cards to me to deal the crushing blow
I'll even close the door so you won't see me go
When I'm leaving, gone today
I'm on my way

I'll walk away like a shadow in the night
I won't give cause for you to feel we have to fight
I'll make it easy so that you won't really - quite
Know I'm leaving you today
On my way
And now I'm going.

    "Butchie's Tune" - playing Zal Yanovsky's guitar partoldsagefields

    Boxcarcifer

    I was Devoted to Zal Yanovsky in 1966, I got a Gibson ES 330 with a Bigby (Grandmother) same year $330.00+ $125 for Case= $445.00 at the Big Little Rock Arkansas Guitar Store, I was 16 Years old. Being a Arkansawyer I still cannot Pronounce his name! I just tried again, Hillbilly Mouth can't create Polish Words. of course I am joking. hell I am 70 years old, with a ES335, a 2002 Les Paul Custom, a Pre-Joe "Joe Pass" Epipjone Emperor 2, and two other guitars better than those, and a 1950s Silvertone Mandolin Off Set like Kaycraft style. I just sit in my Senior Senile Supportive Studio apartment Playing through a CRATE CR160 amp driven by a Roland Microcube "Just For "Classic" Amp Mod and Delay!
    I go out to busk ever now and then and People Like it. Pretty Good Life for a Retired Railroad Hobo Mistral who Met Utah Phillips in 1990 & TOOK THE BAIT!
    Bruce "U. Utah" Phillips was the fundamental pragmatist who makes stories of life... began writing songs about the hobo life while supporting himself as a printer, .

    Don't give me a place for my memories to stay
    Don't show me an inn or a light to find the way
    I ain't got time for the things on your mind
    And I'm leavin' you today on my way

    Please don't you cry when the time to part has come
    It's not for what you've said or anything that you've done
    I gotta go anywhere anytime
    And I'm leavin', gone today, on my way
    I'm goin' home

    Please don't stick around to see me when I'm feelin' low
    Don't pass the cards to me to deal the crashing blow
    I'll leave and close the door so you won't see me go
    When I'm leavin' , gone today, I'm on my way

    I'll walk away like a shadow in the night
    I'll won't give cause for you to feel we have to fight
    I'll make it easy so that you won't really 
    quite know I'm leavin' you today on my way
    And now I'm going

  16. DAVID WOLF

    ~ 1966. The B-side of "Summer In The City." John Sebastian and the Lovin' Spoonful could do no wrong. Classic and still fresh in 2018. Cheers, DAVEDJ ~

  17. John Bailes

    Listen to Zal's guitars. He always added magic to the music. RIP.

    Mike Edgerton

    He really was a huge part of their sound and appeal. I loved all of them but it did change after Zal left.

  18. BAtadCrazy

    Have loved this tune for years. One of their best. Can't believe it didn't get air play at least in this part of the U.S.. Have the original album if that tells you anything :)

  19. debussy10

    Zalman doing Floyd Kramer...

  20. Roy Au Meuni

    I'm here because of The Loovin' Spoonful.

  21. José Rojas

    me causó mucha tristeza cuando Lane se suicidó :( ... pensar que dio todo por salvar SLDP y terminó cometiendo un error por la desesperación

    Maria Fernanda Villa Viera

    que triste por Dios!, que peso para Don. son demasiados sentimientos que se chocan en este episodio. q buen final.

    This song brings a tear to my eye. Beautiful music.

  24. tck roofing

    How brilliant was this band, total great tunes. Mostly very joyful and happy songs, some of their tunes should be played at wakes, it would get everyone up and moving, they would not be able to sit down or stand still. It would be worth a try, I bet it will work.

    william brodala
