Scott McKenzie - Yves Lyrics




Early one day
Yves had something to say
Marched right at the head
Someone shot him dead

So all of his friends
They lit a candle for him
And all through the night
So much candlelight

I know how you think you're afraid
Don't you know that it's still not too late?
You can go now
Yves has shown you how

And there's nothing that you need to know
Just get up and go
Go now and be blessed
Yves has done the rest

    Early one day
    Yves had something to say
    Marched right at the head
    Someone shot him dead

    So all of his friends
    They lit a candle for him
    And all through the night
    So much candlelight

    I know how you think you're afraid
    Don't you know that it's still not too late?
    You can go now
    Yves has shown you how

    And there's nothing that you need to know
    Just get up and go
    Go now and be blessed
    Yves has done the rest

    Such a beautiful song!

  3. city zen

    I bought his 1st album in 1967; largely written and produced by John Phillips, it has songs later recorded by the Mamas and Papas. "Nobody knows you by what you've been thinking." I love that line; Did he write that?

  8. George R. Gallagher

    I've wondered about this song since first hearing it by the Everlys in 1970. Is Yves a servant or an angel? Is the song an allegory? Too bad Scott isn't around to comment on it. If anybody out there in the ether can give me further insight into the meaning of this beautiful song, I would really appreciate it.

  9. Scott Shea

    Great song. The Everly Brothers did a nice cover of this too for their last single on Warner in 1970.

    V-G-Z

    That is indeed an awesome cover!

    B 4 the Mamas, it was a folk group Scott and John Phillips were in.

  12. LargeDonuts

    Beautiful song, why are people so ignorant and hateful...

  13. Richard McGee

    What a beautiful song from such an underrated singer of my times. Rest in peace, Scott, you touched many lives and hearts with your amazing voice.
