Stewart, John - The Spinnin' Of The World Lyrics




Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl
That you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world?

I'm gone, I can fly, like a comet on the sky
Looking for the shelter of a hurricane's eye
If I turn the corner and your face, it isn't there
I'll come runnin' back tomorrow and go searchin' everywhere

Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl
That you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world?

The sunset is red, I remember what you said
There's no rest for the weary, I'd be better off dead
I cannot find any words that will rhyme
My eyes, they can see, but it feels like I'm blind

Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl
That you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world?
Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl
That you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world?
Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl
That you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world?

    When a great older musician teams up with a young great musician creative sparks fly up to the music gods, and make them smile. Thanks very much for sharing.

    This is gold.

  5. Jasper102211

    Interesting.... I hear hints of a similarly-titled song, "World Turning" (from The "Fleetwood Mac" album), in this song.

  6. slbram17

  7. Lisa Murphy

  9. April Etter

    Why this isn't on any of the albums? Great song!!! This song is what I call "Country" for sure!!!

  22. Susan Fleming

    Lindsey cute as ever.......love him and always will.

  23. Brandon with wwe Lent

    I love this song

  24. Karina Irmer

    I was surprised when Linsey came out on stage, he looked so small. But I guess next to Stevie everybody looks big.

  25. splendiforouslove

    They both sound awesome :) R.I.P John Stewart.

  26. Brsbeach

    Still hard for me to accept that John is gone now.....

  27. Beth Browning

    OMG, I was there. So young. Now John is dead, and so is my husband, the man who produced this event. Hard to watch but impossible to resist. Tommy Smothers now lives down the road from me in Sonoma. Ain't life peculiar?

  28. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    CONGRATS!! (:

  29. Janie West

    I saw this when it originally aired on PBS. Tommy Smothers was hilarious. Would love to see this in its entirety.

  30. Annastasia Grandiose

    I love Lindsey!!!!!

  31. Romany1111

    Thanks for posting this. A great tune, featured on "Bombs away..." Wish that an B-Nicks would be re-released as remastered versions.

  32. Nefarious Ned

    This song was originally on the Kingston Trio album CHILDREN OF THE MORNING. For all you John Stewart fans, it's essentially a Stewart album (he wrote 10 of the 12 songs on it) with Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds backing him up.

  33. Bognar Regis

    @foppa123 Bombs Away Dream Babies is an amazing album. It's one of those albums that I keep going back to over and over along with ELO's Out of The Blue, Gorillaz's Demon Days, Black Flag's Damaged and The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. Just a well made album.

  34. Bognar Regis

    I remember watching this when it originally aired on WQED. Great stuff. Thanks for posting this.

  35. 3Pitous

    In the early 8O's it was hard in France to see such a concert.I got a recording from TV in NTSC.I asked a company to transcode it but it was very very expensive;.. So an employee did me a favor and I understand he filmed the screen with a camcorder without telling his boss so I first saw the document almost witout any colours.LMuch later of course I bought the DVD in full colours.Great memories Thanks for posting.

  36. Oldschool7166

    These guys were great together.

  37. john9944

    Well there is not much to say about this song except....DAMN. This is what music is all about. Lindsey learns from John's records and becomes a star. Then he goes back and pays back John by producing John's biggest hit. I am a huge John fan as well as Fleetwood Mac. With Lindsey and Stevie singing on Gold it sounded like a Fleetwood Mac song. It reminds me of Jerry Garcia and his work with David Grisman. Thanks Lindsey. RIP Picker.

  38. Dan Trigoboff

    First saw this years ago, never forgot it. Great to see it again. Only recently realized Lindsey is wearing the striped shirt in tribute to the Trio.

  40. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    Sorry to hear that you lost that Mick photo. Hope it turns up for you. (:

  41. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    Thanks for the info.!! I would be TOTALLY starstruck if I met Lindsey!! I have met a few famous people (Barbara Eden, Paula Abdul, etc...) in the past too while working at a record store in Los Angeles many years ago. However, it was no big deal for me though. The only person on this planet that would make my heart skip a beat, etc... is Lindsey. (:

  42. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    By the way, how did you ever manage to meet him? I've been trying for many years. (:

  43. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    Thanks a bunch!! I really love this one too!! Glad that you can truly appreciate it like me. (:

  44. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    You're welcome. Thanks for your great comment!! You are VERY lucky to have met Lindsey!! I'm jelaous. By the way, I heard he was quiet too, but very nice and down to earth. (:

  45. cmloveland

    I'm a John Stewart fan from WAY back in the Trio days. (I'm 58.) Saw him do the Phoenix Concerts live. Such a shame he's gone. But no matter how many times I watch this particular performance (I have the DVD), I get goose bumps. What an incredible duet.

  46. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    Glad that you love this!! Thanks for commenting!! (:

  47. Lindsey Buckingham Gems

    Thanks!! Glad that you enjoyed this one!! (:

  48. XMLarry
