McGuinn, Clark & Hillman - I Love Her [Demo] (1979)

When The Byrds finally disbanded permanently in 1973, each member went on to varying degrees of success. In 1977, Roger McGuinn (who had been touring with Bob Dylan the past few years), Gene Clark (who had been recording solo albums), and Chris Hillman (who had also been recording solo albums), found themselves on the same tour through Britain. The three reunited to form this supergroup and released one album together, McGuinn, Clark & Hillman, in 1979. They attempted another release together in 1980, but Clark’s lack of reliability resulted in the album, named City, being credited to McGuinn and Hillman while “featuring Clark.”

This song had initially not been included when the album was first released in 1979. It wasn’t until over twenty years later that this song (and two others) was made available for the public to hear. “Surrender to Me,” “Little Girl,” and this song were all demos added to the end of the album’s re-release in 2001. This song really brought back the sound of The Byrds.

Lyrics:

I love her, I love her
I’m always thinking of her
The way she makes me feel
Keeps her on my mind

Loving and gentle
It wasn’t accidental
Thank God I found her
Thank the Lord she’s mine
I love to see her face
In the morning when I rise

She’s still dreaming
When she opens up her eyes

Heaven knows I know
Our love is like a rainbow
Filled with every promise
Shining in the sun

I love her, I love her
I’m always thinking of her
The way she makes me feel
Keeps her on my mind

She’s still dreaming
When she opens up her eyes

Heaven knows I know
Our love is like a rainbow
Filled with every promise
Shining in the sun

Loving and gentle
It wasn’t accidental
Thank God I found her
Thank God I found her
Thank God I found her
Thank the Lord she’s mine
