There are just these songs that remind you of a time, place or person in your life. This is one of those songs… I miss my friend. Terry Jacks version of this amazing song was initially released in the US in December 1973.  Seasons In The Sun then made the Billboard Hot 100 just one month later. By March 2, 1974, his song started a three-week run at number one topping the Hot 100, then remaining in the top 40 until just about Memorial Day Weekend. Billboard ranked this hit as the number two song for 1974.

Seasons In The Sun - Terry Jacks
Seasons In The Sun – Terry Jacks
  • Goodbye to you my trusted friend We’ve known each other since we were nine or ten Together we’ve climbed hills and trees Learned of love and ABC’s
    Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
    Goodbye my friend it’s hard to die
    When all the bird’s are singing in the sky
    Now that the spring is in the air
    Pretty girls are everywhere
    Think of me and I’ll be there.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
  • But the hills that we climbed
    Were just seasons out of time.
    Goodbye Papa, please pray for me
    I was the black sheep of the family
    You tried to teach me right from wrong
    Too much wine and too much song
    Wonder how I got along.
    Goodbye Papa, it’s hard to die
    When all the birds are singing in the sky
    Now that the spring is in the air
    Little children everywhere
    When you see them I’ll be there.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
  • But the wine and the song
    Like the seasons have all gone.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the wine and the song
    Like the seasons have all gone.
    Goodbye Michelle, my little one
    You gave me love and helped me find the sun
    And every time when I was down
    You would always come around
    And get my feet back on the ground.
    Goodbye Michelle, it’s hard to die
    When all the birds are singing in the sky
    Now that the spring is in the air
    With the flowers everywhere
    I wish that we could both be there.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the stars we could reach
    Were just starfish on the beach.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
  • But the stars we could reach
    Were just starfish on the beach.
    We had joy, we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the wine and the song
    Like the seasons have all gone
    All our lives we had fun
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the hills that we climbed
    Were just seasons out of time
