"Renaissance Fair" as written by and Roger Mcguinn David Crosby....
I think that maybe I'm dreaming

I smell cinnamon and spices
I hear music everywhere
All around kaleidoscope of color
I think that maybe I'm dreaming

Maids pass gracefully in laughter
Wine colored flowers in their hair
Last call from lands I've never been to
I think that maybe I'm dreaming

Sun's flash on a soda prism
Bright jewels on the ladies flashing
Eyes catch on a shiny prism

Hear ye the crying of the vendors
Fruit for sale wax candles for to burn
Fires flare soon it will be night fall
I think that maybe I'm dreaming

I think that maybe I'm dreaming
I think that maybe I'm dreaming

    General CommentThe ultimate hippie tune.I was at Monterey Pop Festival taking a piss in one of the portable toilets when the Byrds opened their Sat Night set with Renaissance Fair.
    Walking back to my seat I was in a state of ecstacy."I think that maybe I'm dreaming".Damn right!

    General Commentthe song was inspired by the Renaissance Pleasure Faire
    of Southern California, which has been a yearly medieval
    event since 1962 - the tune describes Crosby's visit and
    his visions of wonder - McGuinn is credited with co-writing
    the song, but it's really all Crosby - David had to put McGuinn's
    name on it or it wouldn't have made it onto the album, that's
    how tense things were in the Byrds at the time - one of my
    favorite Byrd/Crosby songs
