Lyrics: Thrown like a star in my vast sleep I open my eyes to take a peep To find that I was by the sea Gazing with tranquillity. 'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Came singing songs of love, Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Came singing songs of love. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Histories of ages past Unenlightened shadows cast Down through all eternity The crying of humanity. 'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Comes singing songs of love, Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Comes singing songs of love. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of love, Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang, Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang

Thumbs down came from the obese anti fat shaming crowd

People thought it was Jeff beck or Jimmy page on guitar and John Bonham on drums.WRONG! Even though Donovan said it was Page it was not. It was a session player named Alan Parker. Even Page said so.The drums were a guy named Clem Cattini, another session player. The bass Was Jon Paul Jones of Led Zepplin fame. A very heavy song at the time. Great stuff!!!!!!!

I always thought it was Jeff Beck- that's what they used to always say on the radio. Still a song that you'll never forget once you hear it.

I also always thought lead guitar was Page, but they claim it was Alan Holdsworth playing that part and John Paul Jones on bass. Clem Cattini was an excellent drummer.

SATAN has appeared of old to me, [saying]: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. [AUNT JEMIMA 31:3 But anyone who does not love does not know SATAN for SATAN is love. SATAN showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only DAMIEN into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. 10 This is real love--not that we loved SATAN, but that he loved us and sent REASON as a TRUTH to take away our IRRATIONAL SUPERSTITIONS .1 HERE'S JOHNNY 4 So now I, SATAN, am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples." [JAH 13: When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am.[J. CREW 14: "And at midnight a cry was [heard]: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; to meet HIS BRIDEGROOM [Obergefell v. Hodges 25: For SATAN himself will come DOWN from THE FICTITIOUS PLACE with a commanding shout, with the voice THAT'S IN THE HEADS OF SCHIZOPHRENIC BIBLE THUMPERS , and with the trumpet call of SATAN. First, NOBODY will rise from their graves BECAUSE THEY ARE DEAD AND THERE IS NO AFTERLIFE. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet SATAN in the air. Then we will be with SATAN Forever. 18 So encourage each other with these words.1 THELONIOUS MONK 4 Set SATAN as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is A CHEMICAL REACTION. And RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS ARE A CANCER ON THE EARTH Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of SATAN. 7 MUDDY WATERS cannot quenchTHE BLUES , Nor can the FUNDIES FACE REALITY . "If a man would give for love All the wealth of his house, It would be utterly despised." DAFUQ? THAT SENTENCE MAKES NO SENSE. Songof OINGO BOINGO 8 SATAN is patient and kind. XTIAN KNUCKLEHEADS IN YOUTUBE COMMENTS are jealous, boastful, rude and proud OF THEIR IGNORANCE. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. TRUTH? LMAO! 7 SATAN never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 8 "Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless." BECOME USELESS? THEY ALREADY ARE USELESS. THE ENTIRE BUYBULL IS USELESS! But SATAN will last forever! 9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete ( YOUR "KNOWLEDGE " YOU RELIGIOUS NUT ) ...and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! OH BROTHER, MORE "PROPHECY" CRAP ...But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless. 11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. YOU STILL DO IF YOU BELIEVE IN ANY "GOD" . But when I grew up, I ( being a blind follower of nonsense) KEPT BELIEVING childish things. 12 Now we see things RATIONALLY, WITH LOGIC AND REASON. NOT HOPING FOR SOME MAGICAL BULLSHIT THAT WAS CREATED LONG AGO WHEN HUMANS WERE COWERING IN FEAR. We will see everything with perfect clarity WHEN WE ADMIT THE FOLLY OF OUR SLAVISH OBEDIENCE TO MYTHOLOGICAL STORIES THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD. All that we know now is partial and incomplete, but SEEKING TRUE KNOWLEDGE THROUGH ACTUAL FACTS AND PROOFS we will know everything completely, just as SATAN now knows me completely.[1Rich Corinthian Leather 13

Great music from a time gone by. A great video.
Hurts that none of my family got me on this style of music... I was the strangest 4-5 Yr old going... While all my friends listened to westlife I was playing The Doors, Talking Heads, Donavon, The who and so on......

John Paul Jones arranged, and played on this song. Jimmy Page may have played the guitar solo. John Bonham may be the drummer. Just sayin'

Donovan was well respected by and hung out with the Beatles in the 1960s. I loved this record since it first came out. Really far out, groovy and heavy back then. Loved many more Donovan songs along the way as I heard them on AM radio along with the other great British groups back then even though I was in Montreal. I feel that this was an Acid Rock song before Acid Rock even started, wow! Yes Jimmy Page was playing the electric guitar on this and John Bonham is on drums before they formed Led Zeppelin. I think I had this as a 45 RPM at one point. Still have all the 450 LPs that I started buying in the 1960s and kept them all and have half of the top classic rock LPs in the top 100. Long live Rock n Roll. Still have enjoyed and loved many more groups in each year from the 1960s up until now 2018. So great music is still being created however now you have access to millions of great pop and rock songs of the last 60 years. I saw Donovan and the Beatles and the other great British and US groups on the Ed Sullivan show in the 1960s, thankfully. Support the artists and songwriters by buying the music instead of riping them off by downloading illigally. I have the original discs and cds and cassettes and don't listen to cheap sounding compressed music, which sounds lousy like am radio back in the 1960s. Real quality sound has great harmonics and dynamic range and clarity which mp3 quality doesn't it only has a part of the music in it so it is a smaller file size but you lose quality, which you could notice right away with quality headphones or speakers. I have JBL Studio Monitors with a 12" woofer and 3 way components, wow what a trip, what a sound with quality listening equipment, get some quality headphones or speakers yourself for a night and day boost in your listening pleasure. Peace out eneryone!!!!!

It was Clem Cattini on drums, John Paul Jones on bass and Alan Parker on lead. However, Jimmy and Clem as very prolific session musicians, played together on a lot of 60's records, and Jimmy originally did propose Clem to Richard Grant as the drummer for Led Zepp. Clem though was too busy on session work to turn up for the interviews, but did say he didn't think that world would have suited him.

Love this song! This is the verse written but not included: "When the truth gets buried deep Beneath the thousand years asleep Time demands a turnaround And once again the truth is found" ..i think the first verse makes it unnecessary: "Thrown like a star in my vast sleep I open my eyes to take a peep To find that I was by the sea Gazing with tranquillity."
