Cover of Gone To Earth

From Gone To Earth and 54 other releases

Hymn is the first track on “Gone To Earth”, an album by the English rock group Barclay James Harvest released in 1977. Written by band-member and guitarist John Lees, the song is sometimes misinterpreted as a Christmas song but is actually a song against the dangers of drug use (and dedicated to musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Paul Kossoff and Janis Joplin).

Valley's deep and the mountain's so high
If you want to see God, you've got to move on the other side
You stand up there with your head in the clouds
Don't try to fly, you know you might not come down

    There were so MANY great original bands in the 70's. I want to go back and re-live it all again (except the crap food, cold houses, strikes, unreliable cars and massive inflation) - still we were happy listening to wonderful music like this on our vinyl LPs and cassettes and a copuple of radio staions plus Old Grey Whistle Test on BBC2 once a week !
