Fifth Dimension album at
The Byrds', "Lady Friend"
The Lyrics:
Here it comes again, it's going to happen to me
Here it comes,I should have learned to duck
She's going to say she's going away
And I will have to live without her and survive
The famous chiming Rickenbacker, forceful horns, a driving rhythm section and some very lush harmonies can't hide the fact that David Crosby's "Lady Friend" has some very depressing lyrics.

The Byrds', "The Bells of Rhymney"
The Lyrics:
Oh what will you give me say the sad bells of Rhymney
The Byrds took this Pete Seeger song about a Welsh mining disaster and turned it into an upbeat folk-rocker.
