Buddy

Well my friend and I shared many things
And we rode together on angels wings
And I didn`t really care what the future might bring
When I would listen to him playin` and singin`…

When I was feeling down he’d lift my spirits high
And at the same time his magic music made me cry
And then one day he just up and died
And I felt all alone as I stood screamin`…

Well I said Buddy! What has happened can you hear me friend?
Buddy! I didn`t see this comin’ ’round the bend
Buddy, is this the way your story ends?
Well you rest easy and I`ll carry on singin`…

And now I stand alone and I play my game,
Well he`s gone away and he didn`t even know my name
But I knew his, he was a man of fame…
Well rest easy Jimi and I`ll carry on singin`…

Cause I said Buddy! What has happened can you hear me friend?
Buddy! I didn`t see this comin’ ’round the bend
Buddy, is this the way your story ends?
Well rest down easy… I`ll carry on singin`…

MAGIC MAN

Well I’m wanderin’
Through a lonely town
Well says a lovely blue-silk lady
“Was it you I saw runnin’ in a crowd?”

Well hold on baby, I think I dig what you’re tryin’ to say
Cuz I’m a Magic Man, I’ll catch you cuz I can
But let me show it to you this way

Well about this long after she met me
We found ourselves standing in a garden dressed in orange archways
I said “Baby can you dig the scene it’s pretty near insane”
I’m a Magic Man seen magic lands let me show you again

Hey!
Watcha say?
Magic Man
Oh I’m a Magic Man

Hey!
Yeah baby
Magic Man
A Magic Man, yeah hey

Hey!
Catch ya cuz I can
Magic Man
I’m a Magic, Magic Man

Hey!
All right
Magic Man
Ahh, that’s what I say

Hey!
Yeah
Magic Man
Baby!

FUNKY WOMAN

Yeah hey funky woman
You’re blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Yeah hey funky woman
You’re the funkiest woman I`ve met in my time

Well I met her one crystal morning,
on the sand of jupiters moon way back some time
From there we rode to saturn’s rings, on a sun dragon’s wings
And made love under a star-filled sky

And I screamed, Yeah!

Yeah hey funky woman
You’re blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Yeah hey funky woman
You’re the funkiest woman I`ve met in my time

Well I brought her back down here to meet you all
She`s a funky-funky woman, yeah she`s just fine
Well, here she is a settin’
Oh, in my arms
You been listenin’ to her scream all this time

Oh, Scream baby!

Go!
That`s right

Go!

Yeah hey funky woman
Well aah.. you’re blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Ah well my body`s on fire
And you’re sendin’ cold shivers down my spine!

Yeah hey funky woman
You’re blowin’, blowin’ my mind
My body`s on fire
And you’re sendin’ cold shivers down my spine

Yeah funky… Yeah funky woman.

MADNESS

Mercy
To a woe-begotten land
Upon those who live in the shadow of madness
Brought on by their own hand

Once a land
Blessed with the dawn of an age
It`s path placed in the hands of
A creature insane

The birth of belief
And of opposition
A time of kings and queens
And cosmic missions

One may tell
Of domination
And suppression of masses
Throughout a nation

The merciless sound
Of an iron gate
And there was one of many who would step
Into the arena that sealed his fate

Well amidst the jeering crowd
Would he stand fast and proud… yeah…
To be consumed by half-starved, maddened beasts of prey
And onlookers would revel in his fate this day

A hero though he was
A fool was he too
From then was the madness upon us
And worse from then it grew
Well mercy on man`s fate… cursed to live his existence
As the object of his own chosen rampage

…Oh I feel he’s gone mad… yeah

ALL IN YOUR MIND

Well hello little girl, it`s so nice of you to drop by,
Would you mind if we take a little walk in the sky?
I can see there`s a message hidden somewhere in your eyes,
And I know if you take my hand we`ll get along just fine,
Well “no no no,” she scream`s…, and then she cries,
Cause I got me a problem I can`t realize…

Well hold on now, everything will be just fine
There really is no need for you to think you`re going out of your mind,
Accept my love and let’s be on our way,
We`ll journey to an ancient land and be back in ’bout a day,
“Oh thank you oh so much,” she says, “I think I understand,”
Then quietly she comes to me and takes me by the hand

I know that I`m
In love with you
And that I can’t back out,
And now I know
You love me too,
I`m glad that we found out…

BLUES

Well when I got your letter baby,
Tellin’ me we were through,
Well you said you found yourself another guy,
Oh I swear I didn`t know what to do,
Well I been driftin’ around for a hundred and one years,
Thinking about how much I miss you.

You know it`s funny when I came here baby,
I didn`t even know who I was,
When I came here baby,
Oh I didn`t even know who I was,
And when I come to think about it strongly,
I don`t think I know anyone who does.

(All right… I say it best this way…)

(Okay, dig this…)

(All right… one more thing…)

I think I`ll go back on a driftin’,
Ain`t nothing left to do but play the game,
Well I think I`ll go back on a driftin’,
Ain`t nothing left to do but play the game, (Well that`s too bad)
Cause I know since I met you baby,
Oh I`ll never be the same.

BOARDWALK LADY

Well I was ridin’ high and the morning was just fine
I saw my little baby and she gave me the eye
I said “Hey little Boardwalk Lady where we goin` to?”
“We`re going by the river, gonna make love to you!”

We started out to quicken our pace,
When suddenly sproutin` up from all over the place
Were plastic gnomes with wooden combs
Dressed in white patent-leather-lace
Who showed us a shortcut to the Boardwalk Lady’s place… hah!

Well I stepped inside but I played it cool
Cause sittin` there was the prince of fools
Lying on an aqua feather-bed
Well I cried out, “Am I losing my mind?”
He said, “Not yet but keep on tryin’,
And maybe you`ll dig the Boardwalk Lady’s head.”

Boardwalk Lady

I said Boardwalk Lady
All right Lady
Boardwalk Lady
Boardwalk Lady
All right Lady

BACK ON HOME

Well you speak of cars and houses
And I tell of kings and gnomes
But I love you, yes I love you
And I want to take you back on home

Well I can`t understand your reasons
You talk all day on the telephone
But I love you, yes I love you
And I want to take you back on home

There`s no real difference between us
It`s that I think I’ve found out it’s not too far away
So if you trust me, and listen to me
We’ll be on our way

Don`t get frightened or nervous
And don`t freak out of your bones
Cause I love you, yes I love you
And I want to take you back on home

THE NEW BEGINNING
