1. Lyrics:

Verse 1]
Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feeling two-foot small
Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

[Chorus]
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away

[Verse 2]
How can I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in
How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

[Chorus]
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away

2. Wonderful song from a truly great era

This is one of those moody Beatle songs-- but as with all their songs, there is a joy in it.

6. A great cover: The Silkie, "You've got to hide your love away," 1966

Thu Feb 6, 2020: A great cover: The Silkie, "You've got to hide your love away," 1966

I had thought that The Cyrkle had done this, but YouTube knew better. I heard this song played on the radio back in 1982 or 1983 while driving around northern Virginia. The radio was tuned to -- what else? -- WHFS.

Silkie - You've got to hide your love away 1966

Original by 'The Beatles' (1965)

The Silkie

The Silkie were an English folk music group. Their name was derived from an Orcadian song The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry, which they sometimes performed. They were briefly considered to be the English equivalent of Peter, Paul and Mary, with their common repertoire of Bob Dylan songs, and the original Australian folk group, The Seekers.

Early days

The four original members were all Hull University students who formed the group in October 1963. It consisted of Sylvia Tatler (vocals) (born 1945, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire), Mike Ramsden (guitar and vocals) (born Michael John Ramsden, 21 June 1943, Totnes, Devon), Ivor Aylesbury (guitar and vocals) (born 1943, Surrey) and Kevin Cunningham (double bass) (born John Kevyn Cunningham, 1940, Liverpool, Lancashire). Their very first recording was a flexi disc that was produced in 1964 for the Hull University Rag Week. This disc consisted of 3 tracks, one side featuring "John Henry" and "All My Sorrows" with "Blood Red River" on the other side. They were most at home performing folk-style cover versions of songs, especially Bob Dylan compositions. Following graduation in 1964, they spent the whole summer working at the Devon Coast Country Club in Paignton, Devon, where they also performed most evenings on stage in the ballroom. Coincidentally, another musician also working there at the same time was Liverpudlian Rod Pont (1942–2000), whose last band (Steve Day and the Drifters) had already played at The Cavern alongside The Beatles and had just split up following a stint at the Top Ten Club in Hamburg during the previous autumn.

Recording contract

Early in 1965, after appearing at the Cavern Club in Liverpool where they performed alongside The Spinners, they were signed by Brian Epstein who appointed Alistair Taylor as their manager. Their first single in June 1965, "Blood Red River", reached # 14 on the Wonderful Radio London Fab 40, but failed to make any impression on the national chart. However, they followed this up with "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" a Lennon–McCartney composition, their only chart hit.

Chart success

They were helped by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison to record a cover version of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" on 9 August 1965 at the IBC Studios at around the same time as The Beatles' own version was released on their album Help! The song charted in the UK at # 28 and at # 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in the same year. Lennon produced, McCartney played the guitar and Harrison kept time by tapping his guitar and also playing the tambourine. When the recording was completed, Lennon was so pleased with it that he played it over the phone to Brian Epstein and told him that they had just recorded a Number 1 hit.

The Silkie were then scheduled to tour the United States in December 1965 and had even been booked to appear on both The Ed Sullivan Show and American Bandstand, but were unable to obtain the necessary visas and work permits, so their tour was subsequently cancelled. They had already released an album, "The Silkie Sing the Songs of Bob Dylan", in 1965 and two further singles, "Keys to My Soul" and "Born to Be With You" were also released in 1966 but all 3 failed to make either the UK or the US charts. In the autumn of 1966 the original Silkie lineup split when Aylesbury and Cunningham departed.
