There's a woman
That you ought to know.
And she's comin',
Singing soft and low,
Singing rock and roll.
She's a joy to know.
Neath the shadow
Of her soothing hand
I am free there
Just to make my plan.
Dream of faraway lands,
Anything close at hand.
And she will follow me.
What do you know?
Familiar places she's been by,
And I know.
Could it be she don't have to try?
And tomorrow,
She's a friend of mine.
And the sorrow,
I see her face is lined.
She's no longer blind.
She's just hard to find.

    Sounds like he found the girl of his dreams,but she proved to be hard to hold on to." And Tommorow She's A Freind Of Mine" means that they have gone from lovers to friends. Early in the song,his dreams have come true. She discovers something about him. She's no longer blind-She's just hard to find. Means it's all over. Great song!

    It's a song about the music; how he gets lost in it and can take it where ever he goes. The woman' s the music that he plans his life around and a friend he can take anywhere, anytime with an enigmatic future. Worn by the trip, but well worth the effort.

    Kind of looks like a reference to justice ... The band was part of the "cultural revolution" where justice was a "joy to know", she's "no longer blind" yet she's "hard to find".

    Cheers
