Warren Zevon - Follow Me Lyrics




Stars are hidden me
my lids I just can't keep on
going now you're mine

Skies are falling, you
are calling me and I will
fall behind you tell me

Where we're going to
see the rain softly falling
on my window pane

Don't know where
But I don't care
I will follow him
Until the stars grow dim

Until the wind has blown
away hey you tell me where
we're going to follow me (follow me, follow me)

My head is goin' 'round
My empty wrists are pounding
I dont know what to do
But I will follow you

Wind is cryin' trees
are sighin' birds are flyin'
higher now you're mine

Now the night is still
Wander where you will and I
will find you tell me

Where we're going to
see the rain softly falling
on my window pane

Don't know where
But I don't care
I will follow him
Until the stars grow dim

Until the wind has
blown away hey you tell me
where we're going to

Follow me, follow me, follow me

My restless heels don't heed me
I'll wander where you lead me
But I don't know what to do
But I will follow you

  1. Dom Brady

    Featuring a young Warren Zevon! 😁

  2. Captain Freedom

    Warren’s dad was a gangster named Bumpy Zevonski who worked for Mickey Cohen in the “rackets” of 40s-50s Los Angeles. Fun fact. But he sprung for piano lessons from Igor Stravinsky and it paid off.

  4. Francis williams

    Warren Zevons first commercial recording

  5. Peter Emmert

    The only way I could've gotten this 45 is in a pack of leftovers selling 10 for $1.00 back in 1968.

  6. Thomas Smith

    I didn't know this was the Werewolf of London
    great stuff
    A little folk. A little rock.
    All good

  7. Arqabass

    The fragment from 1.06 to 1.13 is a brilliant symphony of psychedelic sounds ....

  8. Andrea619

    Warren Zevon...unfortunately NOT his best...never heard this before...kinda boring song!!

  9. Alan Oszy

    Never thought I`d find this rare song on You Tube, great classic. Never here this on the radio, still have my original 45 on the White Whale label.

  10. Marcel LAZZER

    Love that song! One of my fav on the Nuggets box

    David Smith

    Yeah, me too

  11. Kelly14UK

    Brilliant. The Californians' cover, too. Is that a harpsichord i hear? They all loved them in the 60s.

  12. star cloud

    White Wale has hidden gems.💖

    Kelly14UK

    The Californians' version is on the Rubble box set. It's Rubble and Pebbles ( the American and non British underground) that got me into the more obscure 60s songs.

  13. Nice Guy

    I hope I have a copy of this somewhere in the mountain of singles I own.

  14. Donald Peoples

    Anyone up for a Frug?

  15. jrh11254

    cybelle (violet santangelo) has a sort of Nico quality to her voice, yes?

  16. Marrowbones

    Now that I listen to it over and over, it seems heavily influenced by Jefferson Airplane. But the first Airplane album also arrived in 1966, so I believe that these two were seeing JA live.

  17. Mel Bee

    Cybelle sounds like a cross between Björk and Grace Slick. Shame she didn't make it in the pop world but I guess her Broadway career makes up for that. ;)

    Marrowbones

    I like her voice, but she hasn't got the power of Grace Slick.

    Nice Guy

    Maybe she just sounds like herself, you dumb airhead.

  18. Therese Stoll

    i was 12 or 13 when this came out-- played it on internal radio for 40 years... finally found it on the nuggets collection well worth the price -- Don Stoll

    Marrowbones

    Which Golden Nuggets is it on? I am looking through them but can't find it. Help!

    Therese Stoll

    @Marrowbones disc 3 cut 5

    Marrowbones

    @Therese Stoll Thanks... I found the Golden Nuggets discs a while back and I have them all now, including this one. Also, I bought a 45 of this song on Ebay.

  19. Dejael Long

    I love this song! Released October 1966 on White Whale Records.

    leigy100

    +Dejael Long It was released in February 1966.

    brian paige

    released in Los Angeles March 1966

    Bob Mayben

    I just ran across a Top 40 survey from April of 1966, it was # 32 on that survey.

  21. kapikakeko

    Yours was a great song, too, tigerspooks....

  22. Guy Sharwood

    Hi, Tigerspooks. Still love Little Bit Of Soul. Great song!!

  23. SeattleLA

    Great to hear from an artist of the actual era. I remember your smash hit quite well.

  24. Stephen Unzueta

    A forgotten classic. Thanks for posting.

  25. DanAndHoe

    I sure have discovered a lot of great music with the Nuggets compilations. Thank you. :)

    Marrowbones

    I've been looking through the Golden Nuggets collections on Amazon, but I haven't found this song. Can you tell me which one it's on?

    stoonybridge

    @Marrowbones It's called :
    "Nuggets - Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968"
    The first track is " Chocolate Watchband - Are You Gonna Be There (At The Love In)".
    I found it on soulseek.

  26. TheEscatones

    @tigerspooks ...awesome.. I have the little bit o soul 45.. great track.. did you guys have anymore 45s?

  27. SwampThizzle

    I'm a Zevon fan and I've owned the "Nuggets" collection for years, but I still had no idea that Zevon was the original "Stephen lyme." (Wayne Erwin of the Monkees was the second one)

    Marrowbones

    I'm looking through the Golden Nuggets collection on Amazon but can't find this song on any of them.
    which one is it on?

  28. folderman71

    More nuggets magic!

    Until the wind has
    blown away hey you tell me
    where we're going to

    Follow me, follow me, follow me

    My restless heels don't heed me
    I'll wander where you lead me

  38. Matthew Davidson

    Bought this @ Merle's Record Rack/New Haven, Conn = 78c/45rpm, Golden Days. Gift of the internet: Got GoToMyPC.com : at a friend's house, I had him boot up his unit and then went to MY computer and THIS *BOSS* side was my demo to him---they had never heard this before, everybody really loved it. No surprise to me---all my '60s faves were Top 40, seldom higher than 20. This YouTube is such a GIFT, you too for posting this: God bless you & those who love you.

    We could only wonder what Warren would think if he ever heard that horrible song "All Summer Long" Kid Rock made which ruined both "Werewolves of London" & "Sweet Home Alabama"? RIP Warren. You'll be missed by us classic rockers.

    TheRomundus

    Kid Rock's a douchebag of epic proportions.

    Kade Likes Music

    TheRomundus He’s actually a very nice person outside of his Kid Rock persona.
    A religious and charitable person, extremely kind as well. I think he just fell victim to the “Late 90s/Early 00s Douche Rock” machine.

  40. William Kane

    It reminds me of The Monkees. That's a compliment, by the way.

    Marrowbones

    Well, this song by itself had been out since February of that year, so your compliment order is backward. The Monkees music was a mock-up of stuff like this and the actors, except for Peter Tork didn't even play a musical instrument. They crashed on it and in a while were playing the songs later. But I really think it sounds much more like Jefferson Airplane of the same time and it has more SF Sound than anything else. Studio musicians did the music and the actors mimed it on camera. You must keep in mind that the TV show premiered in the autumn of 1966. Only Peter Tork knew how to play a guitar. So the compliment is actually from The Monkees to these bands who they borrowed from. BTW; back then, no one liked The Monkees except little kids because older teens and young adults knew that by acting on a TV show PRETENDING to be a Beatles like musical group they had robbed legitimate musicians who were paying or had paid their dues. Even the band name the TV execs picked was a put down on the real scene; The Monkees? Really? They had people like Neil Diamond writing songs for them. It was a farce, but The Monkees tried to earn some respect and maybe got a little, but they were just part of the media's ripoff style of the time, out to make a buck however they can.

  41. john meyer

    Lyme, none other than the great Warren Zevon. A really great song for 1966. Warren was way ahead of his time. Out of this came all of his great songs he rolled out in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. His roots go back to "The Turtles", whom he also wrote for. A great rocker taken before his time.

  42. Bongomag

    This is just brilliant! Tops anything i've heard released in the past 10 years. Way ahead of it's time

    Marrowbones

    It was NOT ahead of its time. The only instance of a thing being ahead of its time is when no one likes it, or it doesn't sell but does years later, or as with a design or technology that no one gets until years or as with Leonardo Da Vinci centuries later, etc. This song is in the Folk Rock style that had just been invented by The Byrds and was very contemporary with them and acts like Simon and Garfunkel, Donovan, and many others.

  43. RetroJoe66

    Thanks for posting this! Great record! Lyme is better known as Warren Zevon!
