​Bright Summer's Day '68

This song is by Curved Air and appears on the album Second Album (1971).

On a bright summer's day
In the middle of May
With the sun shining down
My baby left town
My brother broke jail

Then my daddy shot mom
So I've written this song
Just to tell all you folks
Out there cracking them jokes
How I felt all along

Oh you came along
Oh you've heard my song
Oh you've got me wrong
(I never wanted it to be like this, ooh)
Oh you came along
Oh you've heard my song
Oh
(And still I keep thinking about that bright summer's day)

On a bright summer's day
In the middle of May
With the sun shining down
My baby left town
My brother broke jail

Oh you came along
Oh you've heard my song
Oh you've got me wrong
(I never wanted it to be like this, ooh)
Oh you came along
Oh you've heard my song
Oh
(Now wait, I'll tell my daddy about you)

On a bright summer's day
In the middle of May
With the sun shining down
My baby left town
My brother broke jail
