Jimi Hendrix Lyrics

You got my pride
Hanging out of my bed
You're messin' with my life
So I brought my lead
You even mess with my children
And you're screamin' at my wife, baby
Get off my back,
If you want to get outta here alive

That's what I want now
Freedom, that's what I need now
Freedom to live
Freedom, so I can give

You got my heart
Speak electric water
You got my soul
Screamin' and howlin'
You know you hook my girlfriend
You know the drugstore man
When I don't need it now
I was trying to slap it out of her head

Freedom, so I can live
Freedom, so I can give
Freedom, yeah
Freedom, that's what I need

You don't have to say that you love
If you don't mean it
You'd better believe
If you need me
Or you just want to bleed me
You'd better stick in your dagger in someone else
So I can leave
Set me free

Right on, straight ahead
Stay up and straight ahead
Freedom, so I can live it
Freedom, 'cause I've got lotta to give, baby
Freedom, so I can live, freedom
(Keep on pushin', straight ahead)

Agreed. His vocals are. But his guitar
playing blossomed sooner in his life.
Had he more years, his vox would've
bloomed even more. Sure Jimi knew
his voice wasn't fully evolved yet, yet
in songs like "Angel" and 'Drifting" he
was just getting there with it. LISTEN
to those -and hear a developing tone
and vibrato unmistakably his own.....
-I have covers here of both (scrolling
down my uploads) if interested too.
What Jimi achieved by 27: from the
impoverished childhood he had was
astounding. Truly rags to riches, but
his fortune was the richness of soul
and talent he was cultivating for US.

Imagine if this man would have lived 50 more years. Imagine the just absolutely mesmerizing albums this man would have produced. His existence has inspired millions and completely defined a decade. Hands down the best guitar player in the world.

I don't know. Look at what happened to Steve Winwood's music after 1975. Would we be trying to introduce people to Early Hendrix?

Edward Akin

When you overachieve like Jimi, God brings you home early
