One Too Many Mornings

Album: The Times They are A-Changin' (1964)
  • Down the street the dogs are barkin'
    And the day is a-gettin' dark
    As the night comes in a-fallin'
    The dogs'll lose their bark
    An' the silent night will shatter
    From the sounds inside my mind
    Yes, I'm one too many mornings
    And a thousand miles behind

    From the crossroads of my doorstep
    My eyes, they begin to fade
    And I turn my head back to the room
    Where my love and I have laid
    An' I gaze back to the street
    The sidewalk and the sign
    And I'm one too many mornings
    An' a thousand miles behind

    It's a restless hungry feeling
    That don't mean no one no good
    When ev'rything I'm a-sayin'
    You can say it just as good
    Yes, you're right from your side
    I'm right from mine
    We're both just one too many mornings
    An' a thousand miles behind Writer/s: BOB DYLAN

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn April 9, 1966, the Beau Brummels performed their covered version of "One Too Many Mornings" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    One month later on May 29th, 1966 the song entered Billboard's Top 100 chart at position #96, the next week it peaked at #95, and the following it remained at #95, that was also it's third and last week on the Top 100...
    Between December 1965 and June 1966 the San Francisco-area band had six records on the Top 100 chart, one made the Top 10, "Just A Little"*, it peaked at #8 {for 1 week} on May 30th, 1965...
    Besides the above two, their four other Top 100 records were "Laugh, Laugh" {#15}, "You Tell Me Why" {#38}, "Don't Talk To Strangers" {#52}, and "Good Time Music" {#97}, and all four charted in 1965...
    * And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, besides the Beau-Brummells' "Just A Little", in 1965 there were two other records on the Top 100 with 'Just A Little' in their titles, "Just A Little Bit Better" by Herman’s Hermits {it peaked at #7 for 2 weeks} and "It's Just A Little Bit Too Late" by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders {it reached #45 for 1 week}.
