We Five You Were on My Mind

Pop Rock Music

The We Five were a folk rock group that formed in San Francisco. Their cover of Ian & Sylvia’s song “You Were on My Mind” was their biggest hit, going to #1 on Cashbox and the Adult Contemporary Chart as well as #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1965.

The We Five played pop jazz, adult rock and roll, and Broadway show tunes on acoustic and electric instruments, adding vocal harmonies. Michael Stewart formed the group, and he was the brother of John Stewart of the Kingston Trio. Michael Stewart sang baritone and bass and played a 5-string banjo, 6-string acoustic guitar, and a 9-string amplified guitar. Beverly Bivens sang from tenor to soprano and played rhythm guitar. Other group members were Jerry Burgan (tenor, 6-string acoustic guitar), Pete Fullerton (tenor, acoustic and Fender bass), and Bob Jones (baritone/tenor, 6 string electric jazz guitar, and 12-string electric guitar).

Here are the lyrics to “You Were On My Mind” by The We Five:

“When I woke up this morning
You were on my mind
And you were on my mind

I got troubles, whoa, oh
I got worries, whoa, oh
I got wounds to bind

So I went to the corner
Just to ease my pains
Yeah, just to ease my pains

I got troubles, whoa, oh
I got worries, whoa, oh
I came home again

When I woke up this morning
You were on my mind and
You were on my mind

I got troubles, whoa, oh
I got worries, whoa, oh
I got wounds to bind

And I got a feelin’
Down in my shoes, said
Way down in my shoes

Yeah, I got to ramble, whoa, oh
I got to move on, whoa, oh
I got to walk away my blues

When I woke up this morning
You were on my mind
You were on my mind

I got troubles, whoa, oh
I got worries, whoa, oh
I got wounds to bind”
