Earth Blues

(music and lyrics by James Marshall Hendrix)
Well, I see hands and attesting faces
Reachin' up but not quite touching The Promised Land
Well, I taste tears and a whole lot of precious years wasted,
Saying "Lord, please give us a helping hand"

(love, love, love)
Lord, there's got to be some changes
(love, love, love)
Gonna be a whole lot of re-arranges
(love, love, love)
You better hope love is the answer
(love, love, love)
Yeah, it better come before the summer

Well, everybody can hear the sound of freedom's beating heart
Sirens flashing with earth and rockets stoning
You better love me like it's gonna be the last time
And tell the child to bury daddy's old clothes

(love, love, love)
Yeah, they're talking about gettin' together, yeah,
(love, love, love)
Together for love, love, love
(love, love, love)
You better hope love is the answer, baby
(love, love, love)
I think you better hope it comes before the summer

Everybody, every sister, every mama
To feel the light, it's shining bright, baby
Everybody, we got to live together
Right on baby
Feel those Earth Blues coming at you

Don't let your imagination take you by surprise
A queen and me, I one day visualise
My head in the cloud, my feet on the pavement
Don't get too stoned, please remember you're a man

(love, love, love)
Lord, there's got to be some changes
(love, love, love)
Living together's gonna be a lot of re-arranges
(love, love, love)
You better be ready, Lord, Lord, Lord
(love, love, love)
Just hope love comes before the summer

Everybody, got to feel the light
You gotta feel the light, baby
Everybody, we gotta live together
Keep it together, right on together

All standing together for the Earth Blues coming at you, baby
Right on
Feel those Earth Blues coming at you
Gotta be right on, together

Hendrix,Page,Clapton are the reason why guitar has become such a thriving art in this modern time. Unfourtanatly there cause has been lost with todays EMO and rap crowd and the respect of the 60's has almost dimminished. They are legends and it is a crime that there art is not as appreciated
