The Palace Guard - Falling Sugar (1966)

In a previous post featuring The Merry-Go-Round, a not-yet-famous Emitt Rhodes was mentioned as being a part of The Merry-Go-Round. Well, Rhodes performed in this group as well, as their drummer, before he was in The Merry-Go-Round. Popular for a brief period strictly in southern California, this band released six singles from 1964 until 1966. The band, which was once named the Emeralds, also featured a trio of brothers: John, Dick, and Don Beaudine. For a short while, Don Grady, a.k.a. Don Agrati, later of My Three Sons, was in the group. When Emitt Rhodes eventually left this group to join The Merry-Go-Round, it resulted in the termination of this band.

This song, the band’s biggest hit by far, was accompanied by the B-Side “Oh Blue” and was released in 1966.

Lyrics:

The hurt is so deep
That I can’t sleep or eat
If you would come back
You’d make my thoughts of you seem sweet

And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar
Like falling sugar
And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar (sugar, sugar)

Well I had never loved before
And I’ll never love again
But the moment you walked out on me
My life seemed to end right then

The hurt is so deep
That I can’t sleep or eat
If you would come back
You’d make my thoughts of you seem sweet

And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar
Like falling sugar
And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar (sugar, sugar)

Well, when I gave you all my life
You said we’d never part
And the first time that my life was good
You gave someone else your heart

The hurt is so deep
That I can’t sleep or eat
If you would come back
You’d make my thoughts of you seem sweet

And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar
Like falling sugar
And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar

And they tumble down (and they tumble down)
Like falling sugar
And they tumble down…
