Donovan Leitch Lyrics


by Charles Carreon

Donovan was not of the sixties or seventies or of any other
time period. But thankfully, he has been with us since the
sixties, and against that backdrop of psychedelia, he looks
quite fine. The Gift From a Flower to a Garden album is a
tour de force of humanness. Gift was released as a
two-record boxed set featuring glowing color prints of
Donovan in fantasy attire alone and communing with the
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, also of Beatles fame. One of the two

    ------ About the song Happiness Runs performed by Donovan Leitch

I take back my last statement, I went back and re-read your version off the lyrics, and then re-read the version of the songs lyrics on this page from tonight and after reading the version on this page the person who shared this song with me was singing the same version of the lyrics as the one on this page that I listened to tonight.

Sorry for the confusion, I Just wanted to clarify, and correct my response.

    ------ About the song Happiness Runs performed by Donovan Leitch

Hello, Marian,

I had never heard the song before but I had someone sign me the lyrics after they plaid it for me the first time and I remember them being similar to the ones you mentioned that where different than the ones I read and listened to tonight but I had only heard someone sing me the song once before I listened to the version I'm discussing with you tonight and if I recall correctly after reading your post that was how i originally heard that phrase in the song as well.

    ------ About the song Lord of the Dance performed by Donovan Leitch

I like that song it makes your voice up and Jesus said that I never die but he died in the cross they put a ring in his hand wapt his body and had no more breath and at his end of his life he soon died on the cross it was not Jesus fault it was all the stranger's fault but enfact a little bit was Jesus fault because Jesus danced for the fishermen the fishermen was the stranger that's why really bad for Jesus and Jesus died. THE END!

    ------ About the song Happiness Runs performed by Donovan Leitch

Happiness runs in a circular motion
Life is like a little boat upon the sea
All our souls are bigger than you can see
You can have everything
If you let yourself be
You can have everything if you let yourself be
(This is what I recall but may ave been sung by John Denver)
For what it's worth....

    ------ About the song Skip-A-Long Sam performed by Donovan Leitch

It's not a deep song but it brings back memories of being 15 and young and loving any song I heard of Donovan's. At the time it always lifted my spirits to hear it. Thank you for asking

Very Interesting... Really? | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song The Heights of Alma performed by Donovan Leitch



"Donovan's Universal Soldier song has the line "And he is the fighting for the Russians..."

That song mentions the USA, France, the Reds, the Jews, Catholics, Hindus... almost everyone EXCEPT for Protestants and the Great Britain."

Might have been an interesting point, except for the fact that it was written by Buffy Sainte-Marie, who is, of course, American...

The lyrics for Donovan's song are based on a broadside ballad written about the time of the battle.

The Mountain | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song The Mountain performed by Donovan Leitch

It is one of my favourite songs of all time from a man who has given so many beautiful songs... the spoken word still gets me in deep. So few people have ever heard it as at is not on the most listened to albums

    ------ About the song The Heights of Alma performed by Donovan Leitch

Very interesting...

Donovan's Universal Soldier song has the line "And he is the fighting for the Russians..."

That song mentions the USA, France, the Reds, the Jews, Catholics, Hindus... almost everyone EXCEPT for Protestants and the Great Britain.

Now here is the song, clearly glorifying his motherland's bloody victory.

Very interesting......

    ------ About the song Season of the Witch performed by Donovan Leitch

"You got to pick up every stitch"

This era was the beginning in more serious introspection, meditation etc.... in knitting you can "drop a stitch" ie leave one out .... if you "pick up a stitch" you go back and fill in a missing stitch to correct the error.... seems like he may allude to the way we now sometimes go back to correct a missing or malformed part of our personality to become more whole .... as people began to do through psychedelics and or meditation.

Another world | Reviewer: Colleen
    ------ About the song Season of the Witch performed by Donovan Leitch

There is something about Donovan's music that instantly transports me back to the Summer of Love and the sounds, feelings and smells of patch and incense wafting on the breeze. His voice was mesmerizing and was like a soft caress bringing feelings of peacefulness. Not always understood but none the less one of the best ways to go back to those days. My wish is that we will have the world,I believe, Donovan wanted for us. Peace and love..Namaste
