All Along The Watchtower
ECHOES VOL.2 - 12"


The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
1983 - 1986

Purple haze all over my brain
Lately things don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no

Talkin' 'bout heart 'n' s-soul
I'm talkin' about hard stuff
If everbody's still around, fluff and ease, if
So far out my mind
Something's happening, something's happening

Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, yeah!
Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?

Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze, yeah
Oh, no, oh
Oh, help me
Tell me, baby, tell me
I can't go on like this
You're makin' me blow my mind ... mama
N-no, nooo
No, it's painful, baby
