Song Lyric Sunday Make a Choice.

It is Sunday and and time for Song Lyric Sunday. Jim Adams, our gracious host has said. “today’s prompt is “Come/ Go/ Leave/ Stay.

The first song that came to mind is I’ll follow the sun by the Beatles.

I’ll Follow the Sun” is a song by the the Beatles. It is a ballad written primarily and sung by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was released in 1964 on the Beatles for Sale album in the United Kingdom and on Beatles ’65 in the United States, but was written long before that year: a version recorded in 1960 can be found on the bootleg record You Might As Well Call Us the Quarrymen. The song was released as a mono extended play 45 in 1964 on Parlophone/EMI (and in 1995 as a B-side to “Baby It’s You”). In July and August 1965, the song peaked at number 4 on Sweden’s Kvällstoppen Chart.[4]

I am not keen on McCartney but this is one of his better songs.

Then I thought of this one! Which I live and adore and knocks all other versions in to a cocked hat, even the Original by Bob Dylan!

If You Gotta Go, Go Now” (sometimes subtitled “(Or Else You Got to Stay All Night)“) is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1964. The first released version was as a single in the US by the UK group The Liverpool Five in July 1965, but this went uncharted in the US despite receiving much airplay, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. Another English band, Manfred Mann, then issued the song as a single in September 1965; this version reached number 2 on the UK charts.

And here is my second favourite version in French from Fairport Convention.

Fairport Convention are a British folk rock band, formed in 1967 by Richard Thompson (guitarvocals), Simon Nicol (guitar, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (bass guitar), and Shaun Frater (drumspercussion), with Frater replaced by Martin Lamble after their first gig. They started out heavily influenced by American folk rock and singer-songwriter material, with a setlist dominated by Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell songs and a sound that earned them the nickname ‘the British Jefferson Airplane‘. Vocalists Judy Dyble and Iain Matthews joined them before the recording of their self-titled debut in 1968;[3] afterwards, Dyble was replaced by Sandy Denny, with Matthews leaving during the recording of their third album.

Listen to me, baby
There’s something you must see
I want to be with you, gal
If you want to be with meBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night. It ain’t that I’m questionin’ you
To take part in any quiz
It’s just that I ain’t got no watch
An’ you keep askin’ me what time it isBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all nightI am just a poor boy, baby
Lookin’ to connect
But I certainly don’t want you thinkin’
That I ain’t got any respectBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night. You know I’d have nightmares
And a guilty conscience, too
If I kept you from anything
That you really wanted to doBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all nightIt ain’t that I’m wantin’
Anything you never gave before
It’s just that I’ll be sleepin’ soon
It’ll be too dark for you to find the doorBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night.
