The Cavaliers - Seven Days of Cryin' (1966)

Originally playing surf rock as early as 1964 under the name the Bremen Band, this group was composed of eight high school students in Lynwood, California (southern California). Within a short time, they were calling themselves the name seen above and developed a cult following and even a fan club. Although they won numerous Battle of the Bands competitions, including one at the Palladium, they only went to a recording studio and recorded tracks once. They eventually switched their name to Crystal Fog and lasted through 1972 before breaking up.

This song comes from the group’s only known record and is featured as the A-Side. Its B-Side, “Checkmate,” was initially intended to have a lot of feedback, but the replacement producer guiding the band that day convinced them to remove it. One thousand copies of the record were pressed and each and every one of them sold. Today, there’s rumored to be less than twenty copies still in existence. If you’re lucky enough to find a copy, you can look to making a profit from selling it. They’re selling at prices around one thousand dollars! If you aren’t lucky enough to own an original, you can also find the track on the compilation album Back from the Grave Part 4.

Lyrics:

Seven days of cryin’
Just because of all her lyin’
It’s too much for me
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

You say you’ll never leave me
But your friends say you’re deceiving
Who you gonna blame?
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Maybe I was blind
But my friends have eyes
Now that I accuse you
All I get is lies

Seven days of cryin’
Just because of all her lyin’
It’s too much for me
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Oh, we could go
Our love tonight’s turned to hate
So stop your cryin’ and your lyin’
‘cause your tears are too late

One more time and I’ll be gone
So, hope it sits wrong
The next time
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Girl, you better listen
No, you’re gonna find it missin’
I won’t live this way
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

This is your last try
‘cause if I hear one more lie
You’ll never see me again
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Know that if you love me
You would try to be true
But your cheatin’s only gonna
Make me find someone new

If you can’t be true to me
Then I’d rather set you free
And go my way
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Seven days of cryin’
Just because of all her lyin’
It’s too much for me
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

You say you’ll never leave me
But your friends say you’re deceiving
Who you gonna blame?
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)

Oh, we could go
Our love tonight’s turned to hate
So stop your cryin’ and your lyin’
‘cause your tears are too late

One more time and I’ll be gone
So, hope it sits wrong
The next time
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)
The next time
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)
The next time
(I’m gonna leave ya, baby)
